Methodist Mansfield Community Walking
Walk for fun, fitness, and health!
Walking can help you stay fit and improve your health. Walking improves your body's ability to use oxygen, helps strengthen your heart, decreases body fat, and relieves tension.
According to the American Heart Association, 39 percent of Americans think they are in ideal cardiovascular health, less than one percent actually meet the American Heart Associate's criteria. Research has proven walking is the single most effective form of exercise to achieve heart health. Walking improves circulation; reduces stress and anxiety, increases optimism, improves muscle tone and strength; lowers cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure; and helps with weight loss when combined with energy balance.
