I see it so often, people not entering the gym or exercise arena because they are a shadow of their former self. They hear functional fitness, and automatically think of CrossFit or body flows.
What about the most functional exercise there is? The one that took months and months of infant development to master?
Walking increases circulation, integrates brain hemispheres, integrates respiratory and stabilizer muscles, and uses gravity to help drain the lymphatic systems. This is not even a complete list of the benefits of walking. You can go fast to burn calories and get in the zone, or you can go slow to balance the nervous system and get in the zone.
In short, walking is amazing for integrating the mind, body and soul, and as a form of exercise, or unwinding and connecting to self, nature, and others, there is nothing that can compare to walking. No equipment needed, nearly anyone can do it, and you are likely to have some big mental breakthroughs and realizations on one of your walks.
