Water Walking Club

The Club was featured on the local television news in February 2015.

Walk Around the World - Water Walkers Club Lamar, MOThe way it works is this:  A list of destinations with distances  is posted on the wall. Choose a destination and start walking.  For every mile  walked, or for every destination reached, the walker receives a milestone, which is a charm or bead designated just for that destination. Very simple.

One example is, this past fall during the district and state finals, credit of two miles was given if walkers wanted to walk to the football stadium and back. Of course they didn’t walk on the street, they walked the equivalent distance in the water. Once completed, the walker received a bead for his/her keepsake pin shaped like a football.  (Yes, guys are walking, too.) Walkers can accumulate milestones for tracking miles, in ones, fives or tens, or for a destination on the list.

Another example is, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, in March walkers can walk the distance from Cork, Ireland to Blarney Castel,a distance of about two miles, and earn a green shamrock bead for the keepsake.

There are ten different destinations to choose from at any given time, changing periodically to keep it interesting. The newest  walk is called the New York City Bridges Tour, walking the distances across ten of the bridges that link New York City. One walker completed the distance equivalent to swimming the English Channel at Dover.

Show up. Suit up. Walk. It’s all pretty simple and fun.

The benefits of simply walking against the pressure of the water are extraordinary. It strengthens bones, joints and muscles, increases endurance and provides a good workout. In addition, doing this activity with others keeps it interesting. Conversations develop into friendships, and as Mike Withers,Pool Manager put it,…” the conversation is often as therapeutic as the walking.”

There is a special star one gets for bringing a new walker, and first timers get in free that first time they come as someone’s guest. A special recognition goes out to Mrs. Pat Botdorf of Lockwood, who has brought the most guests/new walkers with her than any other walker; six at last count.

The pool is open Monday through Thursday and there are walking times posted throughout the day. To get a schedule call the pool at 682-5383. A schedule can be mailed or sent by email, too. Pool rates are a very affordable $3.00 an hour and individual passes are available for the indoor pool.

As always, consult your physician before starting any new exercise regimen.
