Walking in the lifestyle of elderly women with a sedentary occupation

Roman Cuberek, Aleš Gába, Zdeněk Svoboda, Jana Pelclová, František Chmelík, Michal Lehnert, Michal Šafář, Karel Frömel

The present findings summarized in the paper do not consider walking as a mere part of usual physical activity of an individual. Walking is understood as a significant tool that contributes to decreasing the impacts of contemporary negative trends in the society including their combinations (prevalence of lifestyle diseases, level of physical activity, sedentary behaviour and others). In the publication the authors emphasize the comprehensive nature of addressing walking. The authors further present the outcomes of their research study supported by the Czech Science Foundation. The core of the study was to assess the influence of a specific walking model based on active transport to/from work. The study is based on the specifics of Czech cities and towns and corresponds with the environmental behaviour model. In the Czech Republic the effect of walking to/from work has been addressed for the first time.
