According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. 

Walking is low impact and easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. 

Walking is a simple, accessible exercise that does wonders for your well-being. It strengthens your heart, reduces blood pressure, and boosts lung function. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to manage weight and increase metabolism. But that’s not all – walking also uplifts your mood, melts away stress, and provides a moment of peaceful mindfulness. And imagine doing all this while strolling through nature, enjoying the soothing embrace of green spaces.

Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. You’ll take a few minutes to learn about a current health topic from a healthcare professional, then spend the rest of the hour enjoying a healthy walk and fun conversation. It’s a great way to get out, get active, and enjoy all the benefits that come from walking. Walk at your own pace and distance.

This program was started in Columbus, OH in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the world. You don’t need any special gear and there are no special rules. Our walking groups are a safe, fun, and FREE place to get some steps, learn about health, and meet new friends. So, slip on your comfy shoes and embark on a journey of health and happiness with every step you take!
