Indiana County

Decathlon & WalkWorks Program

Program Overview:

In 2015, Indiana County was selected to participate in the WalkWorks program.  WalkWorks is a collaboration between the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development, Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Downtown Center (formerly through the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health) to increase opportunities for physical activity across Indiana County.  Through this grant funded program, planners work with local communities to identify community-based walking routes and form sustainable walking groups that will enhance and expand active transportation with the ultimate goal of improving the health of County residents.

you go...

Stretching before your walk not only warms up your muscles, but it increases your

flexibility and range of motion.

Join Josie Smith, Cloe Thoericht & Molly Katzmann from IUP's Kinesiology, Health and

Sport Sciences Department in this short video of key stretches that will help you get

the most out of your walk.


Happy Trails!
