The 6 week self-directed program aimed to get people to start walking and stay active.
What is Walk With Ease?
Walk With Ease is an Arthritis Foundation program designed to encourage people to start walking and stay active. Join this free six week program and learn how to safely make physical activity a part of your daily life.
Walk With Ease can teach you how to safely make physical activity part of your everyday life and is proven to:
Reduce the pain and discomfort
Increase balance, strength and walking pace

Who Should Join the Program?
Walk With Ease is designed for people with arthritis—young and old, male and female, fit and not-so-fit. It is also suitable for people without arthritis who would like to begin a regular walking program to gain the benefits of regular aerobic exercise. If you can be on your feet for 10 minutes without increased pain, you can probably participate successfully, and the program can be modified to meet your needs.
If you want to participate but have concerns about your health, consult your health care practitioner before you begin.
