2. Walking Is FAR MORE TIME EFFICIENT Than In-Gym Training – So Do More Of IT
We burn 100 calories for every 2,000 steps we take (which takes about 15-20 minutes at a manageable pace)
The average working professional/parent/adult averages a measly 10,500~ steps per week
Which translates to roughly 100 minutes spent to burn 500 calories per week (that’s nothing impressive)
In comparison the average 1 hour exercise class burns roughly 400 calories (This includes CrossFit, Spin, Bootcamp, Orange Theory, F45)
But a 1 hour exercise class really COSTS you at least 90 minutes.
Your 1 exercise class translates to roughly 400 calories burned for 90 minutes spent (and 90 minutes is on the low end)
Walking for exercise doesn’t require fancy shoes, new gear, heart rate monitors, shouting instructors, piles of sweaty clothes, money for gas, or the stress of LA traffic to get out and walk
I’m not trying to make a cases AGAINST in gym training – but rather to illustrate the power of other tools in your toolbox that DON’T COST YOU TONS OF TIME AND STRESS.
