Whose shoes would you walk in?

Whose shoes would you walk in, so that you can understand what they’re going through? Sometimes the world of fitness can be so judgmental and mean. Labeling people because their body type doesn’t match up to a magazine’s standard. What if we took time to understand a persons health struggles before judging them? Maybe we should walk a mile with them?

Why not start a wave of wellness in your community. All you have to do is gather a few fitness fanatics, find a place, create an event, print out some registration forms and invite people to join you. Below is the agenda for the Nisqually Tribe’s Wave Of Wellness and you can keep it simple or extravagant, it’s up to you. We’re ending our event with a Heart Happy Walk

Before you step a foot on the one-mile trail dedicate your walk to someone. Write their name on the poster and step to honor them. It could be someone you want to heal & get better, a memorial or a person that you’re grateful for. It’s their mile that you’re walking.
