Event description

Description

Fall will soon be here and that means great weather to be outdoors. Why not take this opportunity to start walking and moving more? Walking is a popular form of physical activity—and good for your health! Only half of all American adults get the recommended amount of physical activity. Lack of physical activity is directly related to the occurrence of adult obesity and overweight. Regular physical activity can lower risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, and falls in older adults. Walking is an excellent way for most people to increase their physical activity. It is an easy way to start and maintain a physically active lifestyle. Walking is accessible to almost anyone, doesn’t require specific skills or fancy workout clothes and equipment.

Need some motivation to get started but don’t have time to attend a class? Get WalkIN’ is an e-mail based walking program being offered through Purdue Extension in Bartholomew. Participants can sign-up, walk on their own and receive e-mailed support and information. Participants will be asked to complete two short online surveys. Any resident of the county who is aged 18 years and older may enroll. If you want more information contact Harriet Armstrong, Health & Human Sciences Educator, Purdue Extension, 812.379.1665.
