Be The Movement Walking Group

 

Most people desire to begin a healthy, more active lifestyle but don't know where to begin.  We're here to help!

More than 190 million Americans are overweight or obese.  Studies show that 60% of American adults don't get the recommended amount of physical activity, and over 25% of adults are not active at all.

Our program is an inclusive program that encourages increased activity throughout the day.  We help you focus on changing habits with daily support over a 9 week program.   Strong social connections and gradual increase in fitness will support you as you develop new healthy walking habits.

Don't be nervous, we are here to walk you through every step of the way. 

The benefits of walking regularly include:

  • Weight maintenance
  • Diabetes control
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Congnitive improvements
  • Decrease in risk of cancer
  • Middle aged people walking 1 hour per day maintained their weight over decades
  • Studies of senior citizens who walk regularly showed significant improvement in memory skills compared to sedetary eldery people
  • Walking also improved their learning ability, concentration, and abstract reasoning
  • Stroke risk was cut by 57% in people who walked as little as 20 minutes per day
