You don’t have to be sweating buckets in the gym or be facedown in a puddle of mud at a Bootcamp to burn fat, walking is one of the best ways to get your body moving and unlike metabolic training or HIIT walking adds very little training stress to the body which results in a higher ratio of fat burn, this is because low intensity exercises such as walking rely more heavily on fat than calorie reserves for completion. Also when women walk our deep abdominal fat is the first to go, which is something we ALL want.
