Join your physicians and other people looking to improve their health at our monthly Walk With A Doc in Pueblo, Colorado!
Simple walking improves your health. Just 30 minutes of walking a day can reduce your risk of heart disease, improve blood pressure and blood sugar, elevate mood, and reduce risk of osteoporosis, cancer, and diabetes. According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact; 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. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?
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!
Join your doctors on a monthly walk to improve your health, learn about important health topics, and meet new friends interested in improving their health with you. While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by local physicians in an informal, relaxed, and fun way!
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, sunscreen, and walk alone, with friends, with a partner, with family, or with a group. It’s your choice, just come walk with us.
Join us! It’s open to anyone – we’ll look for you at our next Walk with a Doc event!
