New Walking Program Coming to Monroe County
Are you looking for an easy and fun way to participate in physical activity? Walk with Ease is an evidence-based walking program developed by the Arthritis Foundation. It has been proven to reduce pain from arthritis, and is also beneficial for overall health for those with and without arthritis. Walk with Ease is a 6-week, 3 times per week program that includes a brief educational lesson followed by a group walking session. Participants of all ability levels are welcome! If you can be on your feet for 10 minutes without significant pain, then this program is for you! Whether you’re looking to start being active, or you’re looking for motivation to keep you active, this is a great program! See the flyer below for the upcoming session!
Classes will take place in and around Sparta. Class sessions are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 10am-11am. The first week we will meet at the Barney Center and following weeks we will meet at various Park Shelters around Sparta (a schedule will be given on the first day of class).
The cost of the program is $25.00 and includes a Walk with Ease book. You must call the Extension office to register!
