Walk with Ease

Description

No matter if you need relief from arthritis pain or just want to be active, the Arthritis Foundation’s Walk With Ease 6 week walking program can teach you how to safely make physical activity part of your everyday life. Studies show that Walk With Ease is proven to:
Reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis
Increase balance, strength and walking pace
Build confidence in your ability to be physically active
Improve overall health 

The virtual program includes a guidebook and a walking schedule to get you safely moving toward better health. Participants will meet via Zoom once a week with trained instructors from MU Extension, Lincoln University Extension, Catholic Charities for Central and Northern Missouri, and Live Well by Faith to discuss successes, challenges, receive education about physical activity and walking, and to get questions answered. Participants will walk on their own (or with a buddy) 3 times per week and keep track on a weekly activity log.
