Running vs Walking -

A new paper was recently published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning research which re-examines the number of calories burned when walking vs. running one mile.  It’s a good read with a few interesting findings.  The two take-home items are the total number of calories burned per minute running vs. walking and the post-workout burn that is seen in running but not walking.  Here is a great review of the paper and a few more pieces of info on the topic.
If you’re planning to start a weight loss program, give Dr. Carin Nielsen’s blog post a read first.  You can also check out the wellness classes we offer here.
