Here are three reasons to kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes: YOU’LL BURN MORE KILOJOULES Striding on sand turns your walk into a strength-training workout for your quads, calves and glutes. When your feet sink into the grains with each step, your legs have to work hard to propel you forward. The result? Up to 50 per cent more kilojoules torched!
