Seeking Walking Leaders
No matter if you need relief from arthritis pain or just want to be active, the newly updated Arthritis Foundation Walk With Ease Program can teach you how to safely make physical activity part of your everyday life. Walk With Ease offers support, information and tools to help you succeed.
Walk With Ease is designed to help people living with arthritis better manage their pain. It’s also ideal for people without arthritis who want to make walking a regular habit. Based on research and tested programs in exercise science, behavior change and arthritis management, Walk With Ease is shown to:
• Reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis
• Increase balance, strength and walking pace
• Build your confidence to be physically active
• Improve overall health
Whether you choose to take part in Walk With Ease on your own or be part of a walking group led by a certified leader, you’ll get the support and tools you need to help set and reach your goals. For more information or to learn how to join a Walk With Ease program in your community, please contact your local Arthritis Foundation chapter.
