A Big 2021 Fitness Trend: Why You Need to Jump On Board


2020 was a difficult year for all of us because here was a Covid pandemic happening all over the world. 

States shut down and businesses closed their doors, including gyms. Exercise classes were cancelled, and all sports were shut down.

People had to get creative if they wanted to exercise!  So, how did you adjust? 

New figures published on 8 October show between May and July 2020, 39% of people reported to walk more and 38% reported to cycle more than before the outbreak of the pandemic. {source}

Walking was a BIG trend in 2020 and continues to be in 2021!

Why is everyone walking?

  • Gets your heart rate up 
  • Prevents chronic diseases
  • Helps achy joint and muscles
  • Gets you outside 
  • Helps stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Builds a strong heart and lungs
  • Sheds body fat 
  • No gym or equipment needed
  • Burns calories and maintain a healthy weight (read that again!) 
  • Aids in digestion
  • Improves your sleep 
  • Prevents onset, swelling, and pain with varicose veins 


Make it A Daily Habit 

Just like you have breakfast at the same time every day, walk at the same time every day. You are more likely to do it. Make it part of your routine. 


Ask a Friend or Family Member to Join You

You can have walking partners! This holds you accountable, which we all need on certain days. The odds are that there is someone you know searching for a walking partner as well. Just ask! 


The real question is... what are you waiting for? Walking is greatly beneficial to your health. 

Have you seen changes in your health because of walking? We would love to hear about them.
