Hiking for Weight Loss

Hiking Is a Change of Pace

Springtime is upon us and temperatures are warming up nationwide. It's a great time to take your exercise routine into the great outdoors. Here are five reasons why hiking is a great way to lose weight, and tone up.

It's a better workout: Waking flat city surfaces is a decent workout.  But if you really want to tone up, hiking provides a more effective workout. That's because traversing the uneven terrain of grass, hills, rocks, etc. use more muscles than does flat-surface walking.

  • It's a change of pace: Let's face it - spinning away on a treadmill at the gym is only so interesting. Outside of a TV screen, the view doesn't change much. But hiking provides a plethora of possible views. The city skyline, the park, the river, the beach, the woods - Depending upon where you live, the views are endless.
  • It's a de-stresser: Studies have shown that being among nature is a prime stress reliever and can help lower incidences of depression.
  • It's a chance to disconnect: Need a little me-time? Taking a solo hike offers a chance to get away for a bit to think, reflect and recharge.
  • It's a chance to reconnect: On the other hand, hiking also offers a chance to reconnect with your significant other, your kids or your best bud. Leave the technology behind and get some face time while you get a workout together.

My relationship with Metabolic Research center began Feb 2010 when I weighed 182 lbs and had high blood pressure. I lost a total of 69 lbs and 72 inches. It has been 6 years and I continue to maintain my weight. I owe my continued success to MRC and all the great classes, especially yoga and the continued support that I receive from the staff. I have learned that food is nothing but fuel for the body and just as with your car you need to give it the right fuel in order for it to run proper. Follow the program and it is possible to loose the weight and maintain it. Nothing tastes as great as healthy feels!
