The Wide World of Walking – Sunday 8 pm
Walking is something we do every day, just to get around or get some exercise. But there's a lot more to walking than meets the eye. We'll explore ways to expand your walking horizons, maximize benefits and incorporate new techniques. Regardless of your walking experience and level, you'll gain new insights and ideas to move your walk to the next level or get started.
Visiting Ranch instructor Lynn Weigand has designed a program to motivate and explore a variety of ways to integrate walking for fitness and health. This week’s classes will provide opportunities to learn or enhance your fitness walking technique, integrate interval training into your walking program, and create a meditative walking ritual. We’ll wrap up the week with a workshop to trouble-shoot, answer questions and customize your walking program for home use.
