Welcome to the Walk The Mile Program.
This is a six-week exercise and walking program designed to help you get prepared for a one-mile walk -- or even part of the walk, if that's what you would prefer to do. There are two programs, a beginner and an intermediate for you to choose from, based on your current level of fitness. The walking can be done at any pace indoors or outdoors. Please refer to the exercise protocol for chair exercises. There is also a suggested Healthy Eating Meal Plan you can follow - to view this plan, click here .

Please consult with your doctor before starting a new diet and exercise regimen. If you have pain while performing these exercises, please stop and consult your physician. If you are currently attending physical therapy, please advise your therapist that you are beginning this program. Above all, have fun with this and move at your own pace.
If you have any questions about this Walk The Mile program, please feel free to contact our rehab department at 609.853.7820. We’ll see you September 13th.
From your Rehab Team at the Jim Craigie Center for Joint Replacement.
