Here’s a little secret from fitness professionals: We trainers love to walk.
It’s true. When I’m not working with clients or doing my strength training regimen in the gym, you will usually find me in the park in Los Angeles, where I am walking and listening to podcasts. I’m not alone.
“When I look for movement, when I want to work my body, I’m looking at things that seem natural to me,” said Charlee Atkins, a Le Sweat trainer and founder, recently for the Well + Good podcast. “I’m going for a walk, walking, cycling in my neighborhood.

Importers It is important to walk in time, not distance. Keep doing this until your stopwatch says you are done.
For a more intermediate walk, perform intervals over the same period. Start with the same 5-minute heat. Then walk for 3 minutes at a really fast pace, before walking at a fast pace for 2 minutes. Continue this pattern throughout the workout.
For a really advanced walk, walk your entire 30-60-minute walk at a brisk pace, but every 5-7 minutes, stop and do 10 squats, 15 push-ups, and a 30-second plank.
