Walkfit is a “Get Active” initiative developed to increase physical activity and social connectivity.

This program, sponsored by Elder Care Community Council (ECCC), is designed not just for the 55-plus active senior, but to be both accessible and welcoming to all.

“Walkfit introduced me to others in the community and Belinda made exercise fun!” said Natalie Parsley, a Walkfit participant.

Participants in this free weekly program attend a session twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday, from 9 to 10 a.m., at the Holy Family Senior Center. In this program attendees are given tools to measure progress and provided tips that will challenge them to become more health conscious and wellness oriented.

"Walkfit will help you get stronger, more balanced and walk better while having fun in your community. Join us and get active." said Belinda Wharton, Walkfit Instructor.

Erica Head, senior center activities coordinator, said that in keeping with continued efforts to promote healthy living, the ECCC developed this “Get Active” campaign to reintroduce the WalkFit program, beginning at 9 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 1. “We hope to add other activities to this program in the near future,” she said.
