Walk This Way program

Submitted By Shawn Fong

"Walk This Way" is a 16-week program for seniors that integrates walking, flexibility, strength and balance exercises with fun games and educational topics. Seniors participating in the program will receive a free pedometer and walking logs; obtain training on various exercises; learn about health, nutrition, and safety; find out about local community resources; and, get support from others to stay motivated and achieve their individual fitness goals. Operated by the City of Fremont Human Services Department, the classes are taught by fitness instructors from Generations Community Wellness, a non-profit organization. The program is funded by a generous grant from the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority.

Seniors who took part in last fall's program commented on how much fun the classes were and how the program benefited them. Many mentioned that the program helped improve their overall physical fitness and mental acuity. Others said that the program helped them avoid injuries, decrease their blood pressure and better manage their diabetes. The Walk This Way program is free and open to seniors of all fitness levels. To register or to find out how to get a walking group started in your neighborhood, please call Shawn Fong, City of Fremont Human Services Department, at (510) 574-2033.
