Walk 2 B Fit

Opportunity can show itself in different forms and it is ultimately up to us to recognize them for what they are. This may not be possible until we give opportunity a chance however and sometimes that means stepping out of the box.

I am grateful for having taken that leap of faith when an old friend of mine (from high school) presented me with the idea of facilitating a walking program for the purpose of bringing fitness to the company, on-site. My resistance initially was an example of my fear of stepping outside the box, perhaps risking a lot of the comfort that I have built up after so many years of training people in the gym. Well, the Walk 2 B Fit @ Lunch Program that came as a result of our initial conversation is in full swing and of course it started with only one step.

Walking is such a fantastic option for exercise on so many levels. I am really enjoying this experience as I learn about integrating and implementing form and challenge to something that we may take for granted as an unconscious act of necessity.

Walk your way to Health, it only begins with one step.....

Glad to hear it's going well. I think it's a great idea!

Gord and I took a power walk after supper tonight.
