Step by Step is a free 12-week walking program aimed at incrementally improving the number of average daily steps an individual takes. The first week will determine each walker’s baseline, and then each week they will be encouraged to increase their steps based on a personal goal. While participants are encouraged to walk and track their own steps, a community group leader will organize a weekly walk allowing walkers to meet, socialize and help support one another.
The goal of this program is to help motivate people to become physically fit to combat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. We hope to encourage people to continue a regular exercise routine following the program.
Robyn Murrell, local resident, Personal Trainer and Head Coach for ROCK STEADY BOXING NEW WEST for Parkinson's, is the Step by Step walking leader for New West.
Please register for the info session by contacting Robyn at 778-323-1465 or . Weekly walks will take place Fridays from 1 - 2 pm.
