Stevenage Health Walks
Please be reminded that we are adhering to the latest government guidelines (updated on 13 December 2021), in particular, Grassroots sport guidance for the public and sports providers.
Health walks are an ideal way of taking exercise and are suitable for all ages and abilities. As well as being a way to increase your social confidence with others; walks strengthen your heart, muscles and bones.
We recommend that you start slowly and always walk at a pace you are comfortable with; you should still be able to chat to the person next to you. Brisk walking brings the most benefits as you will feel a little warmer and breathing will become a little harder.
Current medical advice suggests you should aim to take moderate exercise for 30 minutes at least 5 times a week. If you are in any doubt about joining a health walk, contact your doctor and talk to the walk leaders about our specific needs at your first walk.
