Mall Walking - Tips & Benefits of Walking in a Mall Mall Walking - Tips & Benefits of Walking in a Mall

The latest trend amongst new mothers and mommies is Mall Walking. This is not another fitness mania but walking is actually a convenient way to get some cardio activity and reduce weight.

Benefits of mall walking

You can walk in any weather: With mall walking, you can never have the heat, rain, snow or the wind as an excuse for not exercising. Since the temperatures in malls are controlled, you have a perfect climate all year through.Walking 30 minutes or more is the best exercise to reduce weight.
Safety: Since you are walking inside the mall, you don’t have to worry about getting mugged, teased or even hit by traffic.
Clean and pollution free environment: You don’t have to jump over puddles, or try to avoid stepping on dog poop or worry about your allergies acting up due to pollution.
No cost: Unlike gyms, the malls won’t charge you for walking-so that means you won’t be paying a hefty membership or monthly charges.
How to get started?
As for any exercise routine, ask your doctor or health care provider if you are fit for walking.
Invest in some comfortable workout clothes-even though it’s the hippest mall around, you can’t be exercising in your skinny jeans.
Put on your walking/exercise shoes-again stilettos are a strict no-no for exercising.
Start with 10-15 minutes of walking at a pace that you are comfortable and then after a couple of days increase the pace and the duration.
Get a walking buddy (or partner) to keep you both motivated. Research shows that a walk buddy is effective in achieving your goals to reduce weight.
What are the disadvantages?
It could be heavy on your pocket-the main reasons why mall owners are happy about letting you use the mall! Walking by the displays in the shops could make your wallet lighter even if you aren’t a shopaholic!
If you get tempted by the aromas from the food court, you could be getting in more calories than you burnt! The solution to this would be to walk without your wallet or just get minimum cash (just in case of emergencies).
Money is a great motivator and everyone wants to get their money’s worth. Mall walking is free, so you need to motivate yourself to exercise.
Since the surface is hard, make sure you are wearing good shock absorbing shoes to protect your joints.
So this summer, don’t let the heat bother you too much-just slip on your walking shoes and go ‘mall walking’.
