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!

hahha as long as I have some good jams in my ipod it's a win win! if not then it's trudge trudge :)

Hey, Ladies, Just wanted to let you know that I keep walking for about a month now and it feels great! The walks not only made me more fit, but they also have been such a great relaxation! When you walk all the troubling thoughts just disappear and you feel great afterwards! Try it and I am sure you'll love it too!

I started my walk/run program today!!!

Cool. I'll try this.

Nice post, and thanks for the quote! Walking is most definitely easier on your body than running. If I could be content to walk, that's all I would do, but I'm a runner at heart!

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!

I am very very young, i'm still in high school. I am already 203 lbs. which is crazy. I am very active, and I don't understand how I'm so heavy. I don't look that big, but how can I lose weight, and lose it fast? please help. I want to be in shape before school

I feel that walking is the simplest, most fun, and very effective way of keeping in shape and staying healthy. I love walking...and take a 15 minutes walk every day during my lunch break at work. I love it!!!! It gets me out of the office into fresh air,clears mine mind, and burns calories. Very refreshing!!! Nice post by the way. For Chelsea, I would suggest having a medical exam to rule out any medical problems first. She states that she is very active, and does not look that big, but the weight sounds way up there for a young girl. Then again, muscle weighs more than fat, so maybe she is just very solid. I personally do not support drastic weight changes for long term results, for looks and health. It takes time to put it on and have your system adjust to it, and same should be done to get it off and keep it off. These are only my opinion and suggestions.
