According to the American Heart Association, walking is one of the simplest ways to get and stay active? Walking for as little as 30 minutes a day can reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels, lowers the risk of obesity and enhance your mental well-being. That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?
Healthy Taylor and Beaumont want you to make walking a part of your fitness routine. Join our Beaumont doctors as you walk to improve your health at our next Walk with a Doc event!
Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer! While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by local physicians.
This program was started in Columbus, OH in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the country. You don’t need any special gear and there are no special rules. Just put on a pair of comfortable shoes and walk alone, with friends, a partner or family or with a group. It’s a personal preference.
