WHAT IS PROFESSIONAL WALKING?
Many people enjoy walking as a recreation, and it is one of the best forms of exercise. For some walking is a way to enjoy nature and the outdoors and for others, the physical, sporting and endurance aspect is more important. Other variants of walking are scrambling, racewalking, snowshoeing, nordic walking, walking tours, trekking, hiking and power walking.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF WALKING
Regular, brisk exercise of any kind can improve confidence, stamina, energy, and reduce stress. Scientific studies have also shown that walking, besides its physical benefits, is also beneficial for the mind, improving concentration.
COMMON WALKING INJURIES
Walking is a relatively low-risk activity, however walking injuries are still common. The most common walking injuries are blisters on feet, sore hips and knees and cuts and scrapes. Twisted ankles and damage to knee ligaments are also common problems.
