Get Walkin'

 

 

Purdue Extension wants to help you increase your physical activity. No need to worry about finding time to attend a program—this one is done completely via email!

Walking is an easy way to start and maintain a physically active lifestyle. Walking is accessible to almost anyone, does not require specific skills or abilities to perform, and can be done alone or with others. Physical inactivity is directly related to the prevalence of adult and childhood obesity. Participation in regular physical activity, like walking, decreases the risk of coronary heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, depression, obesity, breast and colon cancers, and falls in older adults.

Get WalkIN’ helps to promote and increase physical activity among adults simply by walking more. This unique program is entirely e-mail based. Over a period of 12 weeks, you will receive 16 e-mail messages from Purdue Extension containing credible and useful information about the health benefits of walking, how to overcome barriers, principles of self-efficacy, social support, goal setting, walking locations, and relapse prevention.

Let us help motivate and encourage you to get on your feet! This program helps participants make simple changes to their daily routine to get in more steps—and on their way to better overall health and well-being.
