Q: Why is walking so good for you?
A: Walking is the number one exercise people of all ages, sizes and levels of fitness can do to maintain a healthy weight, prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. Walking can also strengthen your bones, improve your balance and coordination as well as most importantly lift your mood, enhance your energy, attention, and concentration, and provide an excellent opportunity to get outside, enjoy some fresh air and sunlight and hopefully a few laughs with like-minded people!
Q: How much will it Cost to come on these walks during Fully Fit Feb?
A: For all Fully Fit Feb participants and their families these walks will be free
Q: What time do the walks start?
A: Walks will start at 7:00am sharp so please ensure you arrive 5-10min early so you don’t keep the group from departing on time.
Q: Where do we meet?
A: In the car park under the Story Bridge (Captain Burke Park) Look for the Weight Management Psychology Sign.
Q: Who can be involved?
A: Anyone who enjoys getting out in the fresh air and is capable of walking for 1hr – 1hr and 30min. All ages and fitness levels welcome
Q: How long will the walks be?
A: The walks will range from 5-7kms
Q: How fast/long will the walks be?
A: Each walk will be as fast as it slowest member. It is a group approach and we will work together and walk together. Some may be faster than others and as such can do walk outs and back to the group throughout the course of the walk so we ensure we start and finish together. Ideally we will all walk together for the entirety of the walk. Walks will take between 1hr-1hr 30min
Q: Where are the walks to?
A: Each walk will commence in the car park under the Story Bridge (Captain Burke Park), but each walk will have a different route. In Feb there are 2 WMP Group Walks on Sat 14th (Southbank River Walk) and Sat 28th (Brisbane City River Loop).
