Want to take control of your health? Is a new exercise regimen calling you for 2021? Need a little motivation?
If you answered yes, then consider registering for our free virtual Walk With Ease Program via the popular online platform Zoom.
A new six-week session of Walk with Ease starts Feb. 1. and runs three times a week from 11 a.m. to noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It’s free and open to people 60 and older and their caregivers.
The Walk With Ease (WWE) Program features a certified walking coach who will lead you through stretching and strengthening exercises and provide many tips for walking safely and comfortably.
The course has proven popular among older adults participating through the Learning Connection, Care Connection’s offerings of online events during the Pandemic.
“People like these classes because they get to exercise, and being in the class gives them more motivation,” said Stacey Gilkeson, Lifestyle Program Manager and a certified walking coach.
Participants will end up with personalized walking routines and will build confidence in their ability to be physically active.
Walking can improve flexibility, strength and stamina, as well as reduce pain. Other benefits include weigh loss and stress reduction.
