Consider a walking program for your employees

Walking is the simplest way to increase a person's level of physical activity. Extra steps in the day translate to increased physical activity, burning more calories, toning muscles and increasing stamina. We encourage the use of a pedometers to help employees know how many steps they walk per day and give them some advice about how to increase their number of steps.

Check out Walk NJ Point-To-Point for online tracking of steps and an opportunity to tour parts of NJ.
