What we're about

Over 50? On a fitness journey? Whether you're just beginning to get fit or are already there, join the #FitAfter50 Revolution! We meet occasionally for brisk walks in or near Burlington, NC and surrounding areas.
The healthy benefits of walking are tremendous. According to BoomerCafe.com, walking may prevent heart disease and diabetes, relieve back pain, reduce anxiety and improve the quality of your life.
"Walking is the single best exercise we can recommend on a large scale,” says Bob Sallis, MD, spokesperson for Everybody Walk!, a national public health campaign created by Kaiser Permanente. “Exercise is like a medication we should be prescribing for our patients. And the simplest exercise prescription is walking.”

Can't make the walk but want to be a part of the #FitOver50 revolution? Join Jean Bailey Robor for a challenge on FitBit: https://www.fitbit.com/user/45DV64 ;

#FitAfter50 Walk Springwood Park

Burlington Springwood Park

Walk Springwood Park is a weekly event to promote fitness in our community for the 50+ population. Come join us whether you're just beginning your fitness journey or are maintaining your level of fitness. Our 30-minute walk will include walking the track at the park while enjoying the camaraderie / networking with members of your local community. Why walk and what's in it for you? Walking has great health benefits! According to LiveStrong.com (http://www.livestrong.com): After age 50, you have a greater than one in three chance of developing metabolic syndrome, which includes obesity and high blood pressure. Both women and men experience age-related loss of lean tissue, resulting in a slower metabolism and increased body fat. The best weight-loss exercises for people over age 50 help you to maintain and build muscle to improve your metabolism and give you the strength required for healthy aging. Walking provides a convenient way to lose weight when you're over age 50. For weight loss, most people need at least 30 minutes of brisk walking most days of the week. #FitAfter50 Walk Springwood Park provides a great start to your day and your best life now!
