Walking Group - Indoor
Banish boredom and boost motivation. Because walking is possible for most people and doesn’t require special skills or equipment, it has become the most popular form of activity in the US. Walking with others is a great way to socialize and get healthier, but also hold you accountable, is safer and motivating.
Join us for an orientation night on Monday, January 27th at 6:00pm in the GNG Adult Education office at GNG High School.
Once you learn the route, you’ll be set free to walk at your pace. We highly recommend you bring a buddy to keep you motivated to continue!
