Do you want to start exercising consistently, or do you long to get moving again after hibernating these cold winter months? Our 30-day Walking Challenge for Beginners is a safe, approachable way to start exercising, even if you’re feeling winded walking up a flight of stairs or haven’t worked out regularly for years. Over the course of the challenge, you will gradually build your endurance and strength and will start to feel fitter, healthier, and confident in your new routine.

Strength training is essential for EVERYONE, especially as we grow older. We actually start losing muscle mass before the age of 40. If we don’t engage in strength training, our muscles become increasingly weaker as we age. This puts us at greater risk for injury and falls as our balance diminishes. We may become fatigued climbing stairs, struggle getting out of the bathtub or rising from the toilet, and even struggle holding our grandchildren or carrying our groceries. We have come to believe it is a part of growing older. But it doesn’t have to be. Research shows that even adding some strength training late in life can have significant benefits to balance and in maintaining independence in daily living.
