Fit­ness trainer joins Well­ness In­sti­tute’s walk­ing mis­sion

The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

A vet­eran fit­ness cen­ter owner and trainer will join the WNY Walks se­ries team of the Well­ness In­sti­tute of Greater Buf­falo.

Rod Nagy will par­tic­i­pate in the walk­ing se­ries, which will be­gin at noon in Ni­a­gara Square, out­side City Hall, for six straight weeks start­ing May 1.

Nagy – who has worked with Gold Gym and Fit­ness 19, as well as run an in­door cy­cle stu­dio – also will have a hand in a re­gional Walk­a­bil­ity Sum­mit in June. He sees walk­ing as a route into reg­u­lar ex­er­cise and bet­ter over­all health.

“The value of a sim­ple 30-minute daily walk can­not be over­stated when it comes to the ben­e­fits: im­prov­ing phys­i­cal and men­tal well-be­ing, which may lead to a po­ten­tial re­duc­tion in med­i­ca­tions while com­bat­ing de­pres­sion,” Nagy said.
