Purdue Extension to offer “Get WalkIN” program
Walking is a popular form of physical activity and good for your health. Only half of all American adults get the recommended amount of physical activity. Lack of physical activity is directly related to the occurrence of adult obesity and overweight. Regular physical activity can lower risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, and falls in older adults. Walking is an excellent way for most people to increase their physical activity. It is an easy way to start and maintain a physically active lifestyle. Walking is accessible to almost anyone, does not require specific skills or fancy workout clothes and equipment.
Need some motivation to get started but don’t have time to attend a class? Get WalkIN’ is a free, e-mail-based walking program offered through Purdue Extension in Floyd County. The program starts Nov. 1, 2021. Participants can sign up, walk on their own and receive e-mailed support and information. Participants will complete two short online surveys. Anyone who is 18 years and older may enroll. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 25, 2021.
