We are embracing the necessary changes to accommodate the rapid growth we have experienced in the past year.

Push to Walk will be expanding its space towards the end of the month beginning with moving administrative offices upstairs in its current location. As the organization becomes more well-known and continues to receive inquiries from potential clients on a daily basis, the need for more workout room has become apparent.

Moving some offices upstairs will open up possibilities for additional floor room for client workout sessions and allow more clients to workout at a time. As the organization generates greater interest and welcomes new clients the need for new training staff and extra equipment subsequently follows.

The non-profit hopes to find a location that better suits its needs in years to come, but for now will continue to make good use of the current location, which has treated the organization well so far. “Since July 2012 we have gone from a steady 25 clients to a total of 45 weekly clients,” says Cynthia Templeton, Push to Walk Founder. “We are embracing the necessary changes to accommodate the rapid growth we have experienced in the past year.”

Push to Walk uses exercise trainers certified in methods known to help people regain strength, function and independence and provide one-on-one workouts to their clients. The next closest facilities of this kind are located in Boston and North Carolina.
