More than 145 million adults now include walking as part of a physically active lifestyle. More than six in 10 people walk for transportation, for fun, relaxation, or exercise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of people who report walking at least once for 10 minutes or more in the previous week rose from 56 percent in 2005 to 62 percent in 2010.
