Walking Fitness Program I
A Walking Fitness Program has been designed for the well-being and good health of CCG employees. There are 8 different walking routes convenient for all employees who work in the Uptown area. Employees are encouraged to walk at least once a day or up to 5 times a week. (Please use your discretion).
There is a 2-mile walk (to and from location) in eight different trails that have been established. Employees can walk these trails anytime including before work, during lunch and after work. Employees have an opportunity to take in the beautiful scenery of Uptown while getting fit. For employees who do not work in the Uptown Area, you are encouraged to develop a 2-mile walking trail that will work for you; area parks are ideal. As you walk these trails, employees are encouraged to track each mile walked. Set a goal for the number of miles you wish to walk and set new goals once the old goal has been achieved. Put on our walking shoes and get ready to walk for your health and have fun doing it. Please find below the 8 trails and decide which direction you want to start walking FOR YOUR HEALTH. HAPPY TRAILING! <Click Here to view Walking Trails>

Fortunately, you can find out if you have high blood pressure by having your blood pressure checked regularly. If it is high, you can take steps to lower it. Just as important, if your blood pressure is normal, you can learn how to keep it from becoming high.
