Come Walk With US!

Come walk with us! -- You don't have to compete, there's no wrong way to do it and no maximum time you have to achieve.

That is the way to go about starting a walking program at your company. Walking programs at work involve encouragement and incentive to get each other moving. A recent article in WebMD explains the benefits of walking.

Create a little challenge by asking employees to set their own personal goal and try to meet it. A goal could be "plan on walking ten minutes more than the day before, or just ten minutes to start!"

By creating a small goal, employees are more likely to stick with it and achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Walking is a gentle, low-impact exercise that can ease you into a higher level of fitness and health. It's one of your body's most natural forms of exercise. It's safe, simple, doesn't require practice, and the health benefits are many!
