We Walk the Walk……We Talk the Talk

Have you seen Dr. Mike Evan’s video 23 ½ hours?  If not, I urge you to click on the link.  It will change your life.

Ok, now that you have watched it you know what to do.  Why not do it with it us?  Every single day of the work week, weather pending, we walk at lunch time.  The benefit of walking with Group Santé Kildare is that there will always be a healthcare professional walking with you.  Our professionals include nurses, dietitians and over 20 doctors.  Imagine how motivating it would be to walk with people who practice what they preach!

Dr. Mike explains in his video that you don’t even have to do the 30 minutes of walking consecutively.  You can stay fit by doing three 10-minute slots  or two 15-minute session powerwalks.  Keep your intensity at a moderate pace. Your heart rate should be elevated and you are sweating a bit, you can talk but not carry on a whole conversation.    If you are not sure about your pace, you can always sport a heart monitor like the new Fitbit Charge HR.  It also tracks steps taken (10,000/day is ideal), calories burned and quality of sleep. 

Sometimes walking in a group can break the isolation and monotony of walking alone.  Your healthcare professionals will provide a hefty dose of motivation and encouragement.  Come join us!  Bring a water bottle and a good pair of walking shoes. Let’s go!
