Meet other local health-minded people who enjoy Walking for Fitness! If you like to meet new walking friends and walk weekly or more for better fitness, this group is for you.

We also organize free or low-cost social events, mostly potlucks, some with live music entertainment and dancing ( a healthy exercise ).

Maybe you have heard the recent guidelines about walking 10,000 steps per day. How far is 10,000 steps anyway? The average person's stride length is approximately 2.5 feet long. That means it takes just over 2,000 steps to walk one mile, and 10,000 steps is close to 5 miles. A sedentary person may only average 1,000 to 3,000 steps a day. For these people adding steps has many health benefits.

A reasonable goal for most people is to increase average daily steps each week by 500 per day until you can easily average 10,000 per day. Example: If you currently average 3000 steps each day, your goal for week one is 3500 each day. Your week 2 goal is 4000 each day. Continue to increase each week and you should be averaging 10,000 steps by the end of 14 weeks.

WALK TO LIVE MUCH HEALTHIER, LONGER & ENJOY YOUR LIFE MORE WITH your NEW HEALTH motivated FRIENDS!
