Hiking is a Heart-Healthy Activity
Keeping the heart in top health should be a priority for everyone. While there are many activities which can help the heart stay healthy, one great activity during spring is to go on a hike. Hiking provides great cardio, which has proven time and again to help strengthen the heart. Another benefit of hiking is spending time outside.
