    What the…

    I saw this in a film not long ago and wondered what on earth they were doing. Thanks for making it make a bit more sense!
    I have a question though, why have this Mall Walking if you then have the security guards on segways? essentially not doing any exercise at all?
    Confused thinking I feel

    This is new to me! Probably more suited to older people. I would prefer to walk in the park instead of inside a mall!

    My sister-in-law has walked in malls for years when it is cold outside, I think this is great that it is catching on. Our malls are a dying breed and I am sure the stores love it because they generate revenue off of the people window shopping.

    I agree with the last comment, I prefer to walk out side myself.

    I have walked in the Mall near my house (Penang) for close to 3 years.A friend joined me more than a year ago.

    We walk briskly for 45 mins to an hour each time and we are at the Mall from Mondays to Fridays from 10am.We cover about 7,200 steps each time (measured using pedometer)

    We choose to walk in the Mall because it is safe and we have excess to toilet facilities and water. Parking is minimal and we do not have to worry about the weather.We can also do our grocery shopping after our walk.Of course we are the first to know when there is a sale!

    The first question people asked (when they found out about this activity) is ‘How can your exercise/walking be effective if you do not sweat a lot?’ I always tell them that I am actually working my heart and building my bones and one does not have to sweat buckets to work out effectively.BTW I do sweat (lightly).

    So any one would like to join us? Especially those staying in the south of the island.
