A MOVEMENT TO
What the heck is Walk Fiercely?
The answer is simple. It is a mantra to get people who are sedentary to start moving, beginners to keep moving and avid walkers to push themselves to reach even bigger goals.
Walk Fiercely started in Charleston, WV. West Virginia is the unhealthiest state in the country. Let’s try to change that for West Virginia and reach people around the country to join the Walk Fiercely movement.
Most people are either inactive or not active enough. And most of those people take an oath to themselves to change that. But there’s usually an excuse- Running is too hard or hurts my knees. I don’t have time. The gym is intimidating. I don’t want to “bulk up” with weights (that’s a myth, by the way). – and the list goes on and on. Let’s change that.
NO MORE EXCUSES! Here’s the good news… everyone knows how to walk! You don’t need to pay for a membership, buy any equipment (except good shoes), learn something new or feel out of your comfort zone. All you do is WALK! You don’t have to be fast, and you don’t have to go far. Start small and build up, in both speed and distance. Add a little distance each week. Get your friends involved and have them join you. It’s a lot more fun with a buddy and it doubles as social time, which is another thing most people say they don’t get enough of.
Just take that first step!
Literally, to walking your way to better health and feeling great. Let Walk Fiercely be your mantra too!
My name is Christa Hamra and I am just an ordinary middle- aged woman living in West Virginia, the most unhealthy state in the country. I have titled my blog “Walk Fiercely” because I have come to use that as my mantra. I might not be an athelete…but I am determined! I’ve found that the only way for me to be successful in staying active and healthy is to continue setting new goals for myself. If you think you can’t do it, you CAN!
