Read below for a brief summary of last year's event:
The Newark Downtown District has completed its 8th annual NDD Walking Club! More and more residents and commuters looked to take advantage of downtown Newark’s walkable environment, and the NDD Walking Club provided both physical and mental health benefits. Walkers regularly saw improvements in mood, attitude, blood pressure, resting heart rate, body fat, BMI percentages, and lung function. While reaping the benefits of exercise and healthy-living consultation, walkers also enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of the downtown community.
This year’s season operated from May 29th to October 18th, accumulating over 90 commuter and resident member sign-ups. After completing three walks, attendees received NDD Walking Club backpacks, water bottles, and t-shirts! New this year, the NDD Walking Club partnered with local health and fitness businesses to introduce members to new and effective ways of staying in shape. During the month of August, club members visited I’m So Yoga Newark and Sereniteaz & Juice Bar to tour their facilities, partake in demo yoga classes, and try out some nutritional beverages.
To close this year’s NDD Walking Club, an end-of-season lunch was held, also at Sereniteaz & Juice Bar, to congratulate walkers on their consistency and consciousness of health and wellness. Gift card awards were presented for the most steps, weight-loss, goals reached, and attendance.
