What we're about

Join us if you like to have a walk & talk and make friends! All fitness levels are welcome.

When: weeknights after-work & daytime at weekends.

Where: usually the Tan Track (around Royal Botanic Gardens), Albert Park Lake, St Kilda Beach, Williamstown, and other places near central Melbourne.

Duration: 1 to 1.5 hours, but feel free to leave early.

Group Walking benefits: This study finds that just 'an hour of walking after work could cancel out the negative effect of sitting at a desk all day.' ( https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/hour-of-walking-cancels-effect-of-sitting-all-day_uk_5799bcbce4b06d7c426e8acb )

'Group walking improves blood pressure, heart rate, total cholesterol, mood and other aspects of health with little downside.' ( http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-walking-groups-idUSKBN0L92N720150205 (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-walking-groups-idUSKBN0L92N720150205) )
