Come and Walk for Fitness and Fun!
The Steuben Rural Health Network, a service of the Institute for Human Services, is kicking off their walking group this July in Corning. The walking group will meet for one hour once a week to warm up, walk, stretch, and tone. Upper body workouts will be incorporated during walking to build whole body strength. Walking technique will be addressed each week in an effort to avoid injuries. The group will meet in the Corning Senior Center lobby Wednesday mornings from 9:30 until 10:30am.
Walking is a wonderful way to maintain weight loss and promote good health. Walking is a gentle, low-impact exercise accessible to almost everyone, and FREE of charge! Walking has many health benefits including lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, and a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It also aids in managing chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Walking is a great way to stay happy and healthy.
The Steuben Walking Group also offers the added opportunity to socialize with others while getting in some exercise. Walking with a group provides the added benefits of safety, socialization, accountability, motivation, and friendship.
Prize giveaways and fun activities will be offered along the way, as well as trivia questions and other challenges while walking to keep each week interesting. If you are interested in meeting new friends, having fun, and getting fit with the Steuben Walking Group, please call 607.776.9467 Ext 229 for more information or to register.
