Do you want relief from arthritis pain or just want to be more active? Starting Feb. 5, Zion United Methodist Church of Vatavia will offer the Arthritis Foundation Walk With Ease class which will teach participants how to safely make physical activity part of their everyday life. The evidence-based program is designed for people with or without arthritis - young and old, male and female, fit and not-so-fit. Based on research and tested programs in exercise science, behavior change and arthritis management, Walk With Ease is shown to:

? Increase balance, strength and walking pace.

? Reduce pain and discomfort of arthritis.

? Improve overall health.

? Build confidence to be physically active.

Walk With Ease is a structured walking program that offers support, information and tools to help participants develop successful exercise routines. The class will be taught by Mary Kempf, who is a certified Walk With Ease Leader. During the program, participants will learn proper stretching and pain management techniques, as well as build stamina and walking pace. The program can even be modified to meet the needs of individual participants so that each person can develop an exercise routine that fits their unique goals.

The Walk With Ease program will be offered to the public for free from Tuesday, Feb. 5, through Thursday, March 14, at Zion United Methodist Church of Batavia, N1667 Highway 28, Adell. Classes will meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 9-10 a.m. for six weeks. A donation of $5 can be made to cover the cost of the Walk With Ease book. For more information or to register by Friday, Feb. 1, please contact Kempf at 920-994-9934.
