What is Walktober?
Walktober is a free, community-wide physical activity initiative, encouraging you to engage in the recommended 30 minutes of activity five or more days of the week and walking is a perfect way to meet that goal.

¿Qué es Walktober?
Walktober es una iniciativa gratuita para promover la actividad física en la comunidad, motivando a que todos sigamos la recomendación de estar activos por 30 minutos al menos cinco días a la semana, y caminar es la manera perfecta para alcanzar esa meta.

Why Walktober?
Why do we need a designated month to put one foot in front of the other? On average, experts say, we take a fraction of the recommended 10,000 steps per day. Walking is an easy exercise that packs powerful benefits, such as weight management and blood pressure control. Walking also decreases your risk of a heart attack, lowers your risk of a stroke and even protects against hip fractures.

¿Por qué Walktober?
¿Por qué necesitamos designar un mes para poner un pie frente al otro? En promedio, que dicen los expertos, damos solo una fracción de los 10,000 pasos al día recomendados. Caminar es una manera muy fácil de ejercitarse y lleva consigo muchos beneficios muy poderosos como el control de peso y el control de la presión arterial. Caminar también reduce el riesgo de ataque cardíaco, disminuye el riesgo de derrame cerebral e incluso protege contra las fracturas de cadera.
