Let’s Walk Florida, UF IFAS Extension’s free 10-week virtual program, is about to launch! Leon, Wakulla, Gadsden, Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Liberty and Gulf counties will be helping Floridians achieve their health and wellness goals through physical activity.
Why walk? One of the primary aims of this educational outreach program is to encourage program participants to increase their physical activity levels. Physical activity guidelines for Americans from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, recommend that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity, or an equivalent combination each week. The guidelines also recommend that children and adolescents be active for at least 60 minutes every day. Let’s Walk Florida! is a great opportunity for moving more at work and at home.
