Walking can often attain better long-term health results with fewer injuries than engaging in a more vigrous exercise that is harder on your bones and joints. Don't get me wrong - I love strenuous, sweat-inducing, push-it-to-the limits workouts. SOMETIMES. But you pay for this kind of training if you over-indulge in it. Stress fractures, joint inflammation, high cortisol levels, to name a few.
I highly recommend long, daily walks for gentle cardio as well as stress relief. I prefer hiking through open meadows as well as wooded trails and I enjoy a daily 2 mile walk through my pretty neighborhood.
To maintain my muscular strength, I incorporate a mix of kettlebell training, TRX focused drills and creative body-weight challenges.

A++ all the way. I highly recommend Krav Maga and Fitness training from Bambi Christman. She is extremely professional yet at the same time, very warm and welcoming towards her students. Her expertise and talent makes learning new ideas and techniques fun rather than frustrating. No matter what your fitness or skill level is, Bambi is the truly the best. Definite recommendation.
