Do you have joint pain or stiffness?
Walk With Ease can help!

The Arthritis Foundation’s Self-Directed Walk With Ease (WWE) program is proven to reduce the pain of arthritis. Walk With Ease can help you safely make physical activity part of your everyday life. Even if you haven’t been formally diagnosed with arthritis, Walk With Ease is a great way to learn how to incorporate walking into your life in a safe, comfortable, and effective way.

Walk With Ease is a 6-week program that is offered in two different formats — self-directed or instructor-led classroom format — so you can choose the version that best fits your preferences and lifestyle. Both versions of the program use a guidebook. This guidebook will help assess your needs, customize a program that fits YOU, and helps you keep track of your progress. The book also helps you keep track of the useful information and tips you’re learning along the way.

Walk With Ease can inspire you to start a personalized, safe, successful, and enjoyable walking program. One that helps you:
  • Develop a walking plan that will meet your needs
  • Stay motivated
  • Manage your pain
  • Improve overall health
  • Learn to exercise safely
  • Reach your health goals

Through a partnership with the Arthritis Foundation, the OAAA offers a way for you to participate in the Self-Directed Walk With Ease program at your own pace.
