Walk With Ease

Get the proven benefits of physical activity!

The Arthritis Foundation Walk With Ease Program was developed to help people with or without arthritis form walking groups whose goals are safety and success. The program’s three major objectives are to provide participants with: 

  • education about successful physical activity for people with arthritis,
  • education about arthritis management,
  • and the opportunity to begin and develop an ongoing aerobic fitness program. 

Walk With Ease’s information and strategies are based on research and tested programs in exercise science, behavior change, and arthritis management. 

How does it work? This group will meet for six weeks, three times per week. Each session begins with a brief discussion of a topic important to successful walking or arthritis management. After the discussion, the group will warm up, stretch, walk, cool down, and stretch one last time. At the start, some people may only be able to walk five to 15 minutes, but the program will help you gradually build up to at least 30 minutes of walking three times a week. 

This program is suitable for people with or without arthritis who would like to begin a regular walking program. If you can be on your feet for 10 minutes without increased pain, you can probably participate successfully. The program will be facilitated by certified Arthritis Foundation Walk With Ease program leaders. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver/release form. 

Registration is required, and we ask that participants make an effort to attend all 18 sessions. Session dates are listed below.
