The Probus Walking Group welcomes all levels of walking ability.
Our Probus Walking Group is the longest running, consecutive weekly, Probus Men’s walking group in all of Canada!
You can expect a variety of enjoyable walks once a week. Walks start at 9:30am in the summer and 10:00am in the winter. Walks are generally rated ‘easy’ to ‘moderate’ and typically, last 45 to 75 minutes (4-6km). We believe there is “No bad weather, just bad clothing” …. we walk regardless of weather - rain, wind, snow, or blistering sun!
Walks incorporate a strong social element with great comradery during the walk and again over coffee at the end of our walk … where we discuss and resolve many of the world’s most pressing problems .
Benefits of Walking – recent multi-year studies have shown that walking contributes significantly to physical and mental well-being. People who walk regularly often see noticeable improvement to arthritic, problematic knees and hips, and dementia. In addition to the obvious fitness component, walkers live longer and have a more positive outlook on life and retain a feeling of well-being. Walking boosts the immune system!
Monthly walking schedules are issued to “registered members” of the Probus Walking Group – please email Al Zemrau, Coordinator directly to join our group and have your name added to the distribution list.
