In my continuing quest to find a variety of workouts that will motivate me to stay on track with my weight loss and fitness routine, I decided to try Leslie Sansone's walking workout routines. Leslie Sansone has over 75 in-home walking videos and she owns Studio Fitness in New Castle, Pennsylvania. This workout review is of her 1 and 2 mile workouts featured in her "Start Walking at Home" series, which I tried on exercise TV. I found them both easy to follow and energizing!
The simple act of walking has inherent health benefits for everyone. The
American Heart Association (AHA) endorses a regular walking routine to
prevent heart disease
and claim that brisk walking for 30 minutes can reduce the risk of
heart disease, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. If you like
the idea of a walking routine to get or stay in shape, check out AHA's "My Start"
walking site, where you can sign up for newsletters, connect with "sole
mates" that share your quest, plan a routine and track your miles from
walking, as well as enter your daily food intake. Additionally, if you
don't have one, purchase a pedometer to track your steps during a
walking program. You'll find yourself taking the longer route when you
have that step counter clipped to your waistband!
