Pike Central Walking Club

Pike Central Walking Club

Walkability is an important interest for us here at Friends, especially because of walking’s positive effects on our health and environment. We recently learned about an exciting opportunity for some fun and healthy ways to incorporate walking and exercise around the White Flint area.

The Pike Central Farm Market is hosting the new Pike Central Walking Club. Beginning this Saturday, June 7th, you can join Central Farm Market’s fitness expert Prisna Anderson, a Certified Personal Trainer, Zumba Instructor, and Corporate Health and Wellness Instructor for Kaiser Permanente, for a great walk around the White Flint district area.

The Walking Club will run for one hour, starting with a warm-up at 8:30 am. The first half of the class will include walking exercises that can help you get ready for faster pace circuits. The second half will be as Central Farm Market puts it “Walk and Sculpt,” where you will do 2 circuits that will incorporate body weight exercises with balance and core training. The final stretch will be a cool down and walk back to the market, where you can enjoy the market for some delicious breakfast or early lunch.

The Pike Central Walking Club will be walking on the following Saturdays:

  • June 7
  • June 14
  • June 21
  • June 28
  • July 12
  • July 19
  • July 26
  • August 2
  • August 9
  • August 16
  • August 23

The fee is $10 per walk, which is payable to Prisna at the time of the class. Children ages 12-17 are welcomed to join the club if they are accompanied by a parent/guardian for an additional $5.

If you want to join the club, please email prisnaanderson@gmail.com by the Wednesday before each walk. For more information, check out Central Farm Market.

It is really too bad that this is being offered at a cost and not open to young children (with adult supervision). This would be a great community builder and show good will with the neighbors. Of course, this would have been good PR for you too.

Great to do more walking! Yes! On Saturday, June 21, I’ll be back at the Pike Central Farm Market, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, entertaining as Organ Grinder Lola, with my beautiful, hand-crafted crank organ from my hometown in Germany. I played there in May, and now once more. Free fun for families and everyone else. Come on by and say hello.
