Get Walking!

Walking is one of the best, easiest and cheapest things you can do to reduce risk factors for heart disease and stroke. And choosing where and with whom you walk helps.

The Buddy System allows you to connect with others who share your goals and schedules. You can join an existing club, or start your own.
A Walking Club is a built-in support system to help you stick to your fitness routine. In fact, American adults are 76 percent more likely to walk if someone is counting
on them.
Get on the Right Path
Whether you walk in a group or by yourself, AHA Walking Paths can help you freshen up your routine. You can find more than 19,000 Walking Paths - covering more than 132,000 miles - at or through the Walking Paths app for iPhone and Android devices.
You can find a Walking Path for anywhere you want to go: a neighborhood or downtown, an airport or shopping mall, a nature park or amusement park, a school campus or workplace. They range in difficulty, from easy to moderate to high (most are easy), and vary in length, from a few blocks to a few hundred miles (about an average 7 miles).
You can narrow your search by ZIP code. As you scroll through the names, you'll find titles such as "Main Street Mile" or "Home Stretch." You can print them out, or follow them on your smartphone or tablet. You can also keep up with your progress by logging walks into our tracking tool. You might even be inspired to share a favorite path.
So get moving. You have nothing to lose - except maybe a few extra pounds!
