I am not an active person, I admit. I don’t have a sport, I don’t like running, I don’t like lifting heavy stuff. I have tried enrolling in a gym, but I’m more like a yoga person and, for something more active, I turn to aerobics, walking, and sometimes biking (leisurely biking, that’s all). For my aerobics, I simply search for videos on YouTube, but nothing that I would really do on a regular basis.
Then I found this lady on YouTube. Her name is Leslie Sansone and her program is called Walk at Home. It’s really just a stay-in-place-walking-aerobics kind of thing, but it suits my temperament perfectly.
This is my favorite workout and, ever since I found it, it’s all I ever do as an exercise, alternating it with yoga, outdoor walking and biking.
What I like about this particular workout is that I could choose to do it in 30 minutes (stopping after Mile 2) or do the full 45-minute (3 Mile) workout. It has varying intensity and a little bit of muscle toning.
Another thing I love about it is Leslie Sansone herself. When you do the workout with her, you feel like you’re doing it with a girlfriend. She’s cheerful, warm and funny.
So get your rubber shoes and walk at home with Leslie.
