Top Walking Videos and DVD

Coaching for Walking Workouts

Walking workout videos come in a couple of flavors. There are some that teach you how to walk, with good form, on the treadmill or outdoors. Other videos use walking combined with other moves for an indoor cardio workout. In general, these provide low-impact workouts good for beginners and for times when you can't walk outdoors, and to spice up your treadmill time. These videos may be available for streaming or they may be on DVD or other media.

You can stream or purchase a DVD of this video by Jessica Smith. It includes separate warm-up and cool down segments so you can decide how long to walk for your main workout, combining the 30-minute high energy walk that burns fat and the 30-minute power walk that includes higher intensity intervals, or doing them as separate workouts. Each workout has variations, so they can be used by beginner, intermediate, or advanced users. Many walkers say they like Jessica's style and she is a worthy successor to the older Leslie Sansone videos.
