Celebrate National Walking Day at work on April 3 - DC News FOX 5 DC WTTG

Bring your sneakers to work April 3 and celebrate National Walking Day

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

It's called by many the most perfect exercise that anyone can do: walking.

If you need a little jump start to begin your walking program, here it is. Next week the American Heart Association celebrates National Walking Day. This means bring your sneakers to work on April 3 and plan to walk for 10, 20 or 30 minutes.

Remember this, if you're struggling to find time to walk during your work day, poor diet and lack of exercise are responsible for at least 25 percent of working adults' healthcare costs.

On Monday, Beaumont's Dr. Barry Franklin stopped by FOX 2 to talk about the added benefits of walking and his book, co-authored with Robert Sweetgall, 'One Heart, Two Feet.' Click here to learn more about walking workshops presented by Sweetgall.
