Walk FIT Program

Weight Watchers Walk !T Menlo Park, CA

Let us help you get started!  We know that not everyone is interested in running, that is why we are happy to offer you Walk FIT at Fleet Feet Sports.

More than 190 million Americans are overweight or obese.  Studies show that 60% of American adults don't get the recommended amount of physical activity, and over 25% of adults are not active at all.

Walk FIT is an inclusive program that encourages increased activity throughout the day.  We help you focus on changing habits with daily support over a 10 week program.  Wearing a pedometer will increase the number of steps you take.  Strong social connections and gradual increase in fitness will support you as you develop new healthy/walking habits.

Don't be nervous, we are here to walk you through every step of the way. 

The benefits of walking regularly include:

  • Weight maintenance
  • Diabetes control
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Congnitive improvements
  • Decrease in risk of cancer
  • Middle aged women walking 1 hour per day maintained their weight over decades
  • Studies of senior citizens who walk regularly showed significant improvement in memory skills compared to sedetary eldery people
  • Walking also improved their learning ability, concentration, and abstract reasoning
  • Stroke risk was cut by 57% in people who walked as little as 20 minutes per day

You can do this!


 TUESDAY MID-DAY WALK

We host a mid-day walk every Tuesday at 1:00.  At-home parents, lunch-breakers, or anyone else is invited to join us.  Parents with strollers are encouraged to attend.  We'll depart the store at 1:00 sharp and walk for 60-minutes.  Attendees will decide on the route before departure.

All attendees are entered into the monthly raffle.  Each time you come you get another name in the hat.  The more you come, the more likely you are to win a prize!

Come one, come all!


SAUCONY SATURDAY MORNING WALK/WALK-RUN 

On Saturday mornings at 8:00 am, we're hosting a group run (and walk).  The gathering is meant to be social and so is the pace.  Of course, if you want to head out and break some land speed records than we'll cheer you on.  But the purpose of this walk/run is to get like-minded folks out there to have fun together.  We're building a community here!  Pets welcome.

Meet at the store at 7:45-ish for a 8:00 departure.  We'll walk/run for an hour after which and you'll have the store to yourself.

See you there!
