MSU Extension offers the Walk With Ease Hybrid with a Self-Directed Enhanced program where a group of individuals begin and end the six-week program at the same time. An MSU Extension leader coordinates communication to ensure participants are organized, the instructor will present information to the class once a week, and share tips to motivated and support participants to enable them to complete the program.

During the six-week program, participants will:

  • Understand the basics about arthritis and the relationship between arthritis, exercise, and easing pain.
  • Exercise safely and comfortably. Use methods to make walking fun.
  • Make a personal walking plan with realistic goals for improved fitness.
  • Learn tips and resources to help them overcome barriers and continue to be physically active.
  • Learn about other programs and resources that can help them maintain their walking and try other physical activity.

  • Motivate yourself to get in great shape. 
  • Walk safely and comfortably.
