The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department offers a program to build stamina, endurance and maintain cardiovascular health.
The Walking Program/0-60 is designed to get you walking to as long as 60 minutes in 12 weeks! It begins with 20-minute walks, three times a week, and works to 60 minutes. Distance is not the priority, movement is. No racing or competition, just a focus on health and well-being.
If you are already an active walker, this is a great way to meet new people, walk and socialize! Participants walk at their own pace for a set time. Distance will be tracked every day to monitor individual improvement. All participants will meet at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave.
Walks will be from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, September 1 through November 24.
Registration is ongoing, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, at Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center.
The fee is $12 per month per walker and includes tracking of progress for the 12 weeks of the program.
