Walk at Home

6 May

Sometimes it isn’t practical to exercise outdoors, and sometimes you’re strapped for time and staying in is what works the best.   My husband likes to lift weights, do push-ups, sit-ups, etc.  Me?  I’m a huge fan of walking DVDs.  Not just any walking DVD though, Leslie Sansone’s in particular.  I try to work out several times each week, about an hour or so each time.  It doesn’t take a whole lot of space and I work out in the privacy of my bedroom.  I never thought I’d find an exercise DVD that would encourage me to work out and I’d actually see a difference.  Most are so intimidating and frankly the commitment just seems too much.  I like these.  But don’t let the walking titles fool you.  They’ll give you a “run” for your money.  They’re high energy and when you’re done I hope you’ll feel the same sense of accomplishment I do.  If not, step it up!

I love the way the DVDs are structured.  In this DVD in particular Walk Your Belly Flat, you’re able to choose how long you’re interested in walking, 1, 2, or 3 miles.  Mile-markers allow you to decide which work out is right for you each time. Leslie’s compound exercises give you a multi-muscle workout and bigger calorie burn.

This second DVD I use really is 5 Really Big Miles.  Again, you have the flexibility to walk any combination of the miles you choose.  Unlike the Walk Your Belly Flat DVD, Leslie is joined by a studio full of walkers this time.  This DVD includes a toning band and during the two miles you use them, you’re going to feel it.  You may not feel it on day one, but you will the next day.  I recommend alternating the days you do those miles.  At least in the beginning.

Leslie has several other DVDs but for now I’m sticking with these two.  They’re giving me the variety and motivation I need to Get Out There, even when I’m staying inside.
