Walk Your Way to Better Health

with
Walk With Ease

Health Foundation of South Florida’s Healthy Aging Regional Collaborative added a new program to the current evidence-based classes that are offered to residents in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties.  The new fitness program, WALK WITH EASE, was created by the Arthritis Foundation to help reduce pain and improve health.   

WALK WITH EASE is available free of charge to adults 55 years of age and older who would like to walk their way to better health.  Research studies show that walking for 30 minutes at least three times a week reduces pain from arthritis, increases balance and strength and improves overall health.  With WALK WITH EASE, if you can be on your feet for ten minutes, you can enjoy success with this program.

The good news gets even better. The Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department is partnering with the Collaborative and offering WALK WITH EASE at 13 Miami-Dade Parks locations.  Please click on Miami-Dade Parks for a listing of locations offering the program. 

Individuals interested in joining or organizing a WALK WITH EASE program in their neighborhood, or senior groups from churches, temples, social clubs, condominiums, corporations, etc. should call the Healthy Aging Regional Collaborative’s WALK WITH EASE Coordinator Allan Tavss at 305-455-0338.

All participants are given a WALK WITH EASE GUIDEBOOK which provides all the information, support and tools needed to set and reach realistic goals.  Call for more information or click on the link to the Miami-Dade County Parks locations.  Start walking your way to better health today.
