We live in a society consumed by so many trends and flash, that it’s easy to over look the little things – especially when it comes to health and fitness.

I’ll be the first one to say that I’m not immune to this problem (I mean, Aqualillies looks SO fun, right?), but I also know when to reel it in.

According to a recent NY Times article, Americans’ biggest fitness issue today is too much sitting (the average person spends 9.3 hours a day of sitting, compared to 7.7 hours sleeping), which results in the slowing down of the very same fat-burning enzymes that we try to work out in our fancy classes.

The simple solution to this issue? Walking of course!

I personally try to walk to and from work several times during the week, and if I can make the time, then so can you!
