Creating a fitness plan can be a daunting task – especially when you’re not sure where to start. That’s why I wanted to share one of the most popular exercise programs you may have never heard of – Walk at Home.
Created back in the ‘80’s by Leslie Sansone, Walk at Home has evolved from VHS to a fully digital offering — accessible via desktop, mobile apps, and even Roku. And, best of all – you can do this workout anywhere…from home, to an office or hotel.
The Walk at Home program has 4 basic steps, and is super easy for anyone to follow. Sansone and her fellow walk leaders are very encouraging and easy to follow. I’m loving the monthly plan – which costs ONLY $4.99 a month! It doesn’t get much cheaper than that. There is also a free 7 day trial – and no, I’m not affiliated with the program in any way…I just enjoy it!
With the monthly plan, you get a different workout assigned M-Sat (Sunday is a rest day) – and you end up with a full body workout by the end of the week. While the program’s main focus is walking in place (which is jazzed up by fun moves), there are additional options sprinkled in throughout the month for strength training, and even runs (or boosted walking as Sansone loves to call it). The workouts mix up various music, leaders, and training styles…and encourage you at any point to walk in place or follow along at your own pace. You’re also free to try a different workout from the month at any time as well. You can do all of the workouts with just your favorite shoes – but, if you’d like to incorporate a band, this is the type they use: https://amzn.to/3sqso0F, which you can pick up for $12.99 on Amazon, with free Prime shipping.
Still not convinced? You can find many of Sansone’s videos on Youtube, like this 20 minute workout.
I incorporate the Walk at Home videos on days where I need extra cardio. I’m able to find videos that fit pretty much anything I’m looking from – from low impact steady state to moderate intensity steady state and strength training. If I’m looking to increase my heart rate even more, I’ll add a weighted vest similar to this one: https://amzn.to/3smvhj0 but Walmart also sells cheaper versions in-store.
