When you put yourself first, health and happiness will follow. This is not fortune cookie wisdom, but the mindset needed for a better new you! On Tuesday, February 21, make new friends while having fun getting fit at The Gardens Mall.

The Gardens Mall Walking Club meets monthly for brisk power walking and special presentations hosted by Jupiter Medical Center. This month’s special guest speaker is Dr. Raiza Lopez, a board-certified internal medicine specialist with Jupiter Medical Specialists. Dr. Lopez will discuss heart health, including risk factors, managing stress, and how participants can add positive lifestyle changes like diet and exercise into their daily routine.

New member registration begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Nordstrom Court. Light bites will be served. Nutrition discussion starts at 9 a.m., followed by mall walking. New members will receive a complimentary Mall Walker Fit Kit, which includes a tote bag, water bottle, pedometer, and T-shirt.

The number of calories burned when walking depends on the intensity of the walk, as well as a person’s weight. According to Harvard Health Publications, a 125-pound person will burn about 120 calories walking 1.5 miles, while a 185-pound person will burn about 170 calories.

To reserve your spot, please contact Teresa Dabrowski, Guest Services and Tourism Director, at tdabrowski@thegardensmall.com or call 561.622.2115. Mall walking hours are Monday-Saturday, 7:30 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
