Walk with a Doc
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!
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 and easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and great exercise for those who are looking to shed a few pounds. 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?
Events begin with a brief talk by a Baptist Primary Care physician followed by a short walk at your own pace. During the walk you will have the opportunity have questions answered by the physician. With two walk locations in northeast Florida, a walk is never far away! So come on! Take a walk with Walk with a Doc!
