Wellness Walking

Walk with an Olympian

Physical activity is an important component of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and an activity as simple as walking could provide major benefits to our well-being. Walking not only helps reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, breast and colon cancer and type 2 diabetes, but also provides a mental boost, improving general mood and reducing stress.

Beginning Spring 2016, Stony Brook University is implementing a Wellness Walking Program to promote a healthy lifestyle in the campus community. This program will be led by the US Olympian Dr. Maria Michta, ranked #20 female race walker in the world and Best Female Walker in the United States.

The Wellness Walking Program will provide an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to improve and maintain their physical health through the discipline of walking. Program participants will learn thetechnique of race walking, will build a cardio base and will be encouraged to set individual fitness goals.

In addition, this program aims to create a race walking culture in the SBU community and motivate those students that participated in high school race walking to continue pursuing this event during their college years. Program participants will be encouraged to partake in local race walking competitions,and possibly high level elite races at the regional and national level. The collegiate athletes can compete in the junior category (under 20 years old) and open divisions, while staff and faculty can compete in the master age and open categories.

The sessions will begin on January 25th 2016 at the Walter Hawrys Campus Recreation Center, Monday 1:30pm-2:30pm and Wednesday and Friday 12pm-1pm.
