Every step counts with I Love Walking

I Love Walking invites you to focus on a life-changing theme with us, Every Step Counts.

Such a simple process, isn’t it? The only catch is that you have to actually do it! There’s a difference between being alive and living. People must be mobile to maintain their quality of life. The 30-year old leaning over a computer and the 80-year old in front of the television must get up and move.

Lace up your walking shoes, clip on your pedometer and grab a water bottle, join us any Monday, Wednesday or Friday at the Palo Verde Country Club lounge between 8:00-9:00 a.m. All walking abilities welcome, canes, walkers, those with hip or knee replacements, etc. And those who just need a little socialization while they walk.

Did you know if the body stays in a seated position for 60 minutes, half of the circulation to the legs is cut off? If you walk for just five minutes per hour, your arterial function will not be impaired at all! If that is not enough information to scare you straight out of your chair, sitting for an hour results in a 90 percent drop in the blood enzyme lipase that breaks down fat, as well as a radical decrease in electrical activity in our leg muscles.

What are you waiting for? Now is the time to take a walk.
