2 Walking Workouts - Hate Running? Get Fit Walking ...

Do you despise running as much as I do? But do you still envy those people who religiously jog in the parks? Well, I think I've got great news for you!

There truly IS a great way not to do what you hate (running) and get the results you love (hot bod and I-am-so-fit vibe)! This secret to getting fit is... walking!!!

It is said that every person has two doctors with him... his right leg & his left leg. A vigorous 5 mile walk can do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy man than any medicine or psychology. it is the easiest exercise for most individuals, one that can done without equipment except good shoes, in most terrains & weather & also in very old age.

Oh, and one more reason to love walking - if you are also 5.6 and you wear high heels every single day, you will absolutely love those 30 minutes of walking! Because that's the time when you can finally put sneakers on and walk the streets of your city without killing your toes!

I hope you will enjoy this amazing Walking Workout I've found online and have been following for months now - it was composed by a notorious fitness expert Ray Browning, and it's by far one of the greatest workout routines out there!

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I LOVE walking...it's how I keep fit...it's definitely less painful. Tried jogging a couple of times but...just wasn't happening.

Oh get fit walking, I thought the "l" was an "n" and I was wondering why I was soooo thin.

What is the point of walking to an ice cream and/or coffee shop? All those calories you burned are taken right back in. You are walking o eat crap ~ not to exercise. I like to run one day and walk the next. :)

I love walking... round the shops! Have you seen those new fit-flops, supposed to tone you up whilst walking in them? A-maze-ing!

Wow this is great! I personally hate doing exercises but I need to lose some weight too. I have been doing jumping rope workouts lately but I am dying to try this walking workout too. I hope I will be able to shed some extra pounds out of me. Beautiful post. Thanks :)

I found a book at my shoe store called Walk as Far as You Can, As Fast as You Can. That's it. So I have been. I take my dogs and just walk until they are tired (they're both old). It's about an hour and I break a sweat. It has helped me maintain my weight at my goal without the cost of the gym. We go up and down hills, vary our speed, and enjoy the world. Sometimes I take the younger dog and we walk faster so I am challenged more. But I lost 20 lbs. and have kept it off without too much effort. And I look and feel great.

I have always wanted to try adding intervals into my walking... I've been hearing about the benefits of muscle confusion for years. But if I were to have to look down at my wrist to watch the time every few minutes, SURELY I would trip lol. I'm that person who can't take a sip out of a water bottle and walk at the same time.

So much less pain than running. I've started walking and my body doesn't feel so beat up
