Walking Club

Walking in groups as opposed to walking alone offers several great advantages. First, it gets you off the couch and out of the house! This fact alone can allude to what a positive move you would be making in the improving your health category. Just a half hour every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce body fat, boost muscle power, endurance and be beneficial to one’s mental health! Secondly, walking in groups provides you with motivation and support from other group members giving you the wonderful opportunity to meet new friends. One of the BEST parts of being part of a walking club at the Center is the fun you will undoubtedly have socializing with your group as you embark on a new destination each week! Join Lisa on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. beginning April 13th. All Welcome to Walk.
