Feeling Good Feels Good!

Small lifestyle changes can add up to big impacts; getting there doesn’t have to be difficult. We offer free, community-based classes to help you create lasting changes. Sometimes, a support system is all you need to get started!

Walk With Ease

Walk with Ease, a low-impact walking program, helps to increase physical activity and decrease pain among participants with arthritis or other common chronic conditions. Not to mention, it’s a great way to connect with others working toward a common goal.

More Details:

  • There are two options, an 8-week organized group walk, or a self-directed program where participants pick the day, time, location and length of walks.
  • Group walks start with a short lesson at the beginning of each session.
  • If you choose the self-directed program, you’ll receive “Walk with Ease” e-mails at the beginning of each week with tips, education, and reminders to report “minutes walked.” Registered participants also receive a free Walk with Ease workbook and walking journal to track progress.
