March It Out!

March is here and the weather is beautiful outside. Walking is one of the easiest ways to lose weight.
– For a warm up: start out easy for 5 to 10minutes.
– The burn: power walk for 5 to 10minutes, and then go into a brisk pace for 1 to 2min.
– Power walk again for 5 to 10minutes
– Cool Down: go back to your easy stride for 10minutes.
Make sure you take small steps. The longer the stride, the more it takes away from the speed and you burn more calories.
Drink plenty of water and March it out!
