Join us in person for “Walking for Wellbeing” on Tuesday, May 10 at 11 AM in the Community Conference Center.

Physical exercise doesn’t need to be complicated. Did you know that a 15-minute walk can improve your wellbeing? In fact, you can make huge strides in your Physical, Intellectual, and Social Wellbeing just by lacing up your sneakers and pounding the pavement.

Whether you choose to stroll, shuffle, or sashay your way down the street, you can benefit from this simple form of exercise. Join Sara Wright, CHWB’s Wellbeing Guide and personal trainer at the Crosby Wellness Center, as she discusses how to set the pace for a successful walking routine. March away with tips and strategies that you can immediately implement in your everyday fitness routine.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • discover how the activity of walking can help improve overall wellbeing.
  • learn the benefits of walking, recommended weekly amount of exercise and how to develop a plan that suits your needs.
  • learn specific exercises designed to improve your walking ability.

This program is presented by Sara Wright and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
