RA100 - Good Form Walking Workshop

Come hear details on how slight adjustments to your walking form can make you more efficient and reduce the risk of injury.

Come out and learn about "Good Form Walking". The idea of this workshop is not to reinvent the wheel so to speak, but to give you a few tips on how you can slightly adjust your walking form to become more efficient  and more importantly avoid common running injuries.

Our goal is to provide you with information that will keep you running long term. If you can stay healthy and avoid injury, running becomes more enjoyable. You will have your gait video taped at today's workshop.

Walking is a great form of exercise that almost anyone can do. It has many possible benefits, including:

*Improves cardiovascular fitness

*Strengthens your muscles

*Promotes weight loss by burning calories

*Causes less stress on joints than higher impact activities

*Can be done anywhere, at any time

Walking with the proper form can help you move more efficiently, prevent injuries and stress to the body and engage optimal body alignment — all things that help keep you walking for miles to come.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
