Aspire Zone Foundation’s (AZF) ‘Walk More: Walk’ the Mall initiative will be launched at the Landmark Mall tomorrow. The event between 8am and 10am will feature a selection of exciting activities, including prize draws with gifts, free health checks and the chance to win a pedometer. Walk More…Walk the Mall aims to encourage members of the community to lead active, healthy lifestyles by exercising within the comfort of shopping centers. It was previously introduced at the Villaggio Mall, Al Kahor Mall and Hyatt Plaza. The shopping centres, dubbed the ‘healthy malls’ which was created under AZF’s step into health initiative, aims to encourage people to stay fit this summer by walking in malls. People are encouraged to use the facilities as walking venues before shops open, between 8am and 10am, or after they close between 10pm and 12am. The Villaggio Mall has a route with approximately 3,000 steps to be covered in 30 minutes and burn 150 calories. The Hyatt Plaza route includes an estimated 1,200 steps and is designed to take approximately 12 minutes to complete, burning 70 calories along the way. Meanwhile, the Al Khor circuit involves an estimated 2,000 steps over 20 minutes, accounting for around 100 calories.
