Walking workout

Finding a workout program that works for you can be annoying, I'm the type of person that has to mix it up or I get bored fast.. I feel like I've tried them all.. Crunch fitness, 10 minute soloutions, P90x, Pilates.. The list is endless. But that's the great thing about fitness you can do what makes you happy and what makes you feel good.

I don't know if you guys recall but a few months back I broke my arm in my apartment complex while out walking with my kids. I also have cerebral palsy while mild when falls etc like this happen my body goes into spasm. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this but since that fall I've been reluctant to go out walking alone again.

Everybody know walking is a great workout source and an awesome calorie burn. I've missed it! So I took to the Internet to find a work out that would incorporate walking... 

This is what I found:

Why walking Is important 


  • Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Lower blood pressure.
  • Reduce high cholesterol.
  • Reduce body fat.
  • Enhance mental well being.
  • Help to control body weight



    I've heard so many programs claim a lot but I kind of liked this old school no frills approach. I've been doing this for a week now and really enjoy it. It's simple to follow no crazy complicated moves and while you sweat and feel like your getting a good work out you don't drain yourself.
    They have this little nifty counter on the screen that lets you know how many miles you've walked which is really motivating. Plus you do really burn calories I've been wearing my polar watch throughout these work outs and average 100 cals a mile. 

    Leslie also has a website where you can join her walking challenge for FREE!
