    Event Details:Dr. Kulund hopes participants will also take part in a Train the Trainer session during this event so that they can organize walks with friends in their own neighborhoods. No equipment or experience is needed except a good pair of shoes!

    Robust walking is a low-intensity version of the exercises practiced by President Theodore Roosevelt on the White House grounds in the early 1900s. A robust walker inserts exercises into a walk using environmental objects, such as benches, walls, poles, and trees as props. Neighborhoods that at first appear inhospitable to exercise are soon seen as exercise-friendly.

    Dr. Kulund is a board certified orthopedic surgeon, a former Chief of Health Promotion for the United States Air Force and a member of the City of Alexandria’s Commission on Aging. He is now a research professor in the Department of Prevention and Community Health of the School of Public Health and Health Services at George Washington University. His interests include preventive orthopedics, elevated work stations, and physical activity for seniors.
