The Kentucky Department for Public Health and Department for Aging and Independent Living is pleased to partner with the Center for Disease Control and Arthritis Foundation to offer Walk with Ease (WWE), a 6-week walking program to encourage people with or without arthritis to start walking and stay motivated to keep active anytime of the year. Participants will receive a workbook including educational materials and worksheets. You will also receive emails of encouragement along the way.
Participant benefits include: reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis, improved balance, strength, and walking pace, build confidence in your ability to be physically active, manage ongoing health conditions and improve overall health.
Components of Walk with Ease include: managing arthritis pain and stiffness, stretching and strengthening activities to support the walking program, self-monitoring for physical problems while walking, anticipating and overcoming barriers to being physically active, getting and staying motivated to exercise, develop a walking plan that will meet your needs, and learning how to exercise safely.
