Autumn in Colorado is such a beautiful time of year, and there's no time like the present to get started on a new healthy routine!  Are  you ready to add a little exercise to your weekly routine? Do you need a  little encouragement or a nudge to begin, or continue a walking  routine? 

Join AARP Colorado’s Virtual Walking Group - Colorado Springs. AARP  Colorado is offering a fun and safe way to establish a walking habit and  to share the experience with others during a weekly Zoom video chat. 

The  6-week AARPCO Walking Group in Colorado Springs will begin moving the  week of October 3, 2022, and is designed for people of all ages and all  abilities who are interested in walking. We will meet virtually on  Wednesdays at 6 p.m. starting October 5, 2022 . The program is based on  the Arthritis Foundation’s national Walk with Ease Program

Already  an avid walker? That’s OK! Connect virtually with others in your  community and share your experiences. It may be a fun way to meet people, make new friends and encourage others.

As a participant, you’ll receive the Walk with Ease Participant Guidebook**.  The guidebook, and our weekly video chats may provide useful  information and tips about developing an individual walking plan.  Participants are encouraged to incorporate independent, self-paced walks  3-times a week. It doesn’t matter how far you walk. If you’re a  beginner, you can start your walks for as long as you’re personally  comfortable with and perhaps set a goal to build up to 30 minutes a day,  3-times each week by the end of the program. If you’re more fit when we  begin, possibilities are endless. Whatever your schedule and stamina  will support. 

The  weekly video chat, led by a local AARPCO volunteer, will provide you an  opportunity to receive helpful information from AARP and other  resources, share your experiences, and connect socially. Each week we will discuss walk related and healthy  living topics. This program  offers social distancing, social engagement, and a whole lot of fun. 

Participants will walk independently, we will not be walking as a group!

At  AARP Colorado, we think that a healthy lifestyle can help us all to  deal with the daily stress of living. When you register for the group,  we'll send you a free Walk with Ease Participant Guidebook from the Arthritis Foundation, some AARPCO goodies and video chat log-in information.

Because  of the nature of this program, guests are welcome, but we ask that  participants register themselves so that they can receive books, goodies  and sign the waiver.  Please do not opt out of cvent emails or we will not be able to send you meeting information.

*Please consult your physician before beginning any exercise program. 
**New participants will receive the Arthritis Foundation's Walk with Ease Guide. Returning participants will recieve a goody pack.

Please do not opt out of emails, that is how we will be communicating for these events.
