Why walk?
Walking is one of the healthiest, safest, and easiest ways to begin a fitness program and can be a big step toward improving your health and the health of your students. Fitness or aerobic* walking uses all of the major muscle groups in the upper and lower body in a non-impacting, dynamic, rhythmic action, which is what an ideal exercise should do.

Several new studies, including one from the National Action for Healthy Kids, conclude that children who eat healthfully and get regular physical activity tend to have better attendance, healthier lives, better attitudes, and perform better academically.  Providing choices at before school and providing children with additional physical exercise has been an important goal for our building. TFES  is very excited about the  new Walking Club program.  Our goal is to provide a fun, effective physical activity program for our students before school.  Walking club provides an opportunity for student and parents to exercise and socialize together.  This is an effort to instill the idea of healthy and lifelong activities can be fun.
