MY Baptist Health
Arkansas walkers will find that walking is less stressful on your body and joints than running or
cycling, but offers many of the same health benefits, including:
- A strengthened immune system
- Reduced risk of Osteoporosis
- Improved respiration and circulation
- Weight control
- Lower levels of stress and anxiety
Many Arkansas walkers like to exercise indoors in a safe, weather-protected place. The InStep Club
walking program at McCain Mall in North Little Rock is perfect for those who want to walk at their
own pace, regardless of weather conditions. The BAPTIST HEALTH MallWalkers program meets at Park
Plaza Mall and encourages good health through aerobic walking and free monthly blood pressure screenings.
Those looking for wilder Arkansas walks will enjoy the Zoo Walkers Program at the Little Rock Zoo.
