Total Body Balance

What’s best for weight loss: walking or running?

A recent study looked at the relative merits of walking versus running when it comes to weight loss.

In summary, it found what most people already know – it’s more about the intensity of your exercise session that’s important.

What the study didn’t look at was the long term effects of running versus walking on the body – things like impact and short and long term injuries. You can read a summary of the study here.

Beleura’s view is both are acceptable. But your chosen activity should be most relevant for what you want to achieve, as well as appropriate for your body type, age and personal circumstances.

Speak to a Beleura therapist if you’d like to know more.
