Atlanta, Georgia

We can all move more by walking. Did you know that according to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity? Everyone can walk around the block, and you do not need any special equipment to do so, just your feet.

Walking can do wonders for our WHOLE HEALTH; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Walking is also one of the favorite low impact activities for the joints and safe for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those with weight concerns. Besides, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise and blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol levels are improved as well. That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it? I hope these two inspirational quotes will inspire you further to join us for a walk around the block. We will love for you to join us.

Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far. – Thomas Jefferson
