Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The jury is in on the benefits of walking as being one of the most pleasurable and effective forms of exercise. This exercise program, devised by Maura Casey, demonstrates the techniques and benefits of walking. She designed the program to meet the needs of those undergoing physical therapy, although the regimen can be used by anyone interested in developing a walking regimen. Casey shows students the proper form and posture for walking, and recommends a series of warm-up and cool down exercises to minimize the chances of stress related injuries. Shoes, clothing, hydration, and safety are some of the issues she covers to make walking beneficial for the body and mind.
