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!
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.
