Walking for Weight Loss? There’s a Better Way [INFOGRAPHIC]

When you’re trying to shed fat, cardio is a great tool. There’s no doubt about it!

Cardio gets your heart rate up, burns calories, and can help you lose fat. There are many different forms of cardio, but when it comes to the most efficient methods, walking is not one of them.

Sure, walking burns calories, and can help support your weight loss goals. But if you are looking for faster ways to burn fat in a shorter, more effective period of time, there are definitely better options!

And with how busy our days can be (work, school, running errands, trying to catch our breath and relax once in a while, etc.), time is precious, am I right?

The Results Are In

As part of the fitness challenges we launch, we’ve collected over 650 THOUSAND surveys from individuals, and the information we received is why we’re putting this blog together!

Among those who took our survey, over half reported weight loss as their primary current fitness goal. Of those, 50% identified walking as being their main source of exercise.

Walking is great way to get active because it’s low impact for those with knee or hip problems, it doesn’t require any special equipment, and it can be a social experience if you invite your friends. But when it comes to exercise, there are definitely more efficient options for burning calories and fat!

Maximize Your Time

So if you could burn the same number of calories in a fraction of the time, wouldn’t you want to? Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not saying you should give up walking altogether.

But if you’re trying to burn fat and lose weight, and you’re frustrated the results you’ve seen so far, it might be time to try out a different form of cardio!

Get the most out of your cardio session by being efficient with your exercise selection.
