HCA Walking Clinic Details
April 9 – June 11 2021

Walking Clinic Postponed

Due to the current Ontario-wide lockdown rules that restrict outdoor gatherings to a maximum of five people, we are forced to postpone the Walking Clinic until the restrictions are lifted. As soon as we are able to set a new date we will announce the details, here and on the HCA Facebook page.

Any dates mentioned here or on the following per-registration page are not correct, and will be updated when we are able to reschedule this program.

We apologize for this change in plans.

Walking Clinic Announcement

If you’ve been thinking about your health or your fitness level, why not join the walking clinic in Carp? It is a great way to incorporate walking into your life! If you are somewhat active (gardening, housework, etc.) and without significant health issues, the walking group is for you. We are walking enthusiasts who will provide ongoing encouragement to enable you to walk 5 km in less than an hour, improve walking posture and form, and to finish a 5 km walk feeling energized rather than exhausted.

This is a 10 week program. Over the 10 weeks you will build up your fitness level and your confidence to be able to walk 5 km in under an hour. We will train together once a week on Fridays at 11:00.

At week 1, we will walk for 15 minutes. You will be expected to practice this three times during the week by yourself. As every week progresses the walking time increases. During the course of the 10 weeks, we will work on proper posture, the use of the arms, and form and techniques. As your fitness increases, we will do some training on hills and some exercises to increase our speed. On the final day of the clinic, we will walk a 5 km course. You will be amazed at how easy it seems.

Think about joining us! Above all else we have fun, and we will provide friendly motivation along the way. It doesn’t matter if you are new to walking or need some help getting started again, we’d love the walking company!

For more information or if you have questions please attend a 30 minute information session at Outdoor Rink at the Carp Fair Grounds on Wednesday, April 7 at 11:00AM (we will help you with what to wear for Spring walking, discuss the schedule and answer any questions).

We will start on Friday April 9 at 11:00. Come to the Outdoor Rink to be ready to start your 10 week Walking Clinic. Come ready to walk (wearing running or walking shoes).
