Wason Pond Walking Club

Wason Pond Walking Club

Indoors @ the MPR

Monday/Wednesday @ 12:00 PM

Walking has long been considered an ideal form of physical exercise. It is easy, accessible, requires no special skills or equipment, poses little risk of injury, and can be done virtually anywhere. Moreover, it has been shown to be effective in contributing to overall weight loss, lowering BMI (body mass index) and body fat percentage, and decreasing blood pressure.

Walking in groups – as opposed to walking along – offers several advantages: motivation and support from other group members, opportunities to meet people and socialize, and great security.

The social benefits alone may be worth joining, not to mention the motivation to increase your physical activity.

Why Walk? It’s Healthy.
 

  • Walking is popular, accessible and low risk physical exercise
