Take a step toward a healthier you!
Walking is one of the simplest, safest and most effective ways to get regular exercise. Regular walks can reduce blood pressure, increase the efficiency of heart and lungs, boost bone strength and burn calories.
A one mile brisk walk — shoot for 15 minutes or less — burns about the same calories as jogging the same distance in 8.5 minutes. Walking an extra 20 minutes each day will burn seven pounds of body fat a year! With each step you're helping defend against chronic health conditions.
Capital BlueCross offers the WalkingWorks® Program and the Better Health Works Activity Tracker to track your steps and activities. The Activity Tracker lets you set personal wellness goals and track health statistics like your weight, blood pressure and cholesterol.
