Let’s be honest. Finding time to get to the gym during the week is tough during the summer because there is so much other cool stuff going on. Why go to the gym and work out when you could be laying by the pool or boating with friends? If you are like me there is a little voice in the back of your head constantly telling you “go work out, you need to stay healthy, you don’t want to get out of shape!” Working out in the summer is also a pretty hot task. Did you know walking is actually super good for you? You don’t have to go to the gym and lift heavy weights to get a great workout, just tie on some shoes and step out onto your street! Here are the benefits of walking 30 minutes a day.
