Short clips on benefits of walking – easy!

25 Sep, 11 | by Karim Khan

Given it’s the weekend, BJSM is allowed to have a bit of fun and show the 5-min video of ‘smokadiabesity‘ being introduced to  last week’s Walking Summit in Washington DC. More importantly, Robert Sallis and Doug Van Zoeren provide helpful evidence and compelling stories as to the benefits of walking.

The link for Every Body Walk! is here – the value for all BJSM blog users is that the site has motivational clips, trail maps –  very practical aids to getting people walking. So it fits with BJSM’s ‘implementation’ push – turning research into patient health benefits. We’d love to hear your stories of how you motivated yourself, or others, to benefit from physical activity. Add below the post or email to
