Heels in Motion
More than 1,000 Triangle residents have found a way to get into shape in a safe, comfortable environment with Heels in Motion. This free mallwalking program is sponsored by UNC Health Care at the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham.
The mall opens its doors for walkers Mon.-Sat. at 8 a.m. and Sun. at 10 a.m. *As part of the program, UNC Health Care sponsors a guest speaker at 8:30 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month to discuss health and fitness. La Vita Dolce hosts each talk and provides a complimentary breakfast beginning at 8 a.m.
Following each talk, a fitness coordinator from the Wellness Center at Meadowmont takes the group through light stretching and exercises. Participants from all walks of life are encouraged to use the mall to get back into shape, get together with friends or take a casual stroll along one of the mall's two marked routes.
The Streets at Southpoint is conveniently located on Interstate 40 in Durham, five minutes from Research Triangle Park, 10 minutes from Chapel Hill and 20 minutes from Raleigh, Cary and Raleigh/Durham International Airport.
