I usually work out 3-4 days a week and do between 45-50 minutes of cardio each day. I would do 25-30 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the Arc Trainer, then lift some light weights that helps too!

Hi Jadey

I walk in the park for 3 miles. The terrain is very good because it goes from flat to hill to flat again, which gives me a good workout. For the first mile I take it slow, speed it up the 2 mile and half of the 3 mile. The last have of the third mile I do a slow walk to cool down. I get pretty good results from just walking and watching what I eat.

I use the elliptical and the treadmill. I hava a Bowflex TreadClimber at home which is a very intense workout. I just start doing interval training on the elliptical putting the crossramp at 20 and resistance on 15. I like the variety of the machine in works the different areas of the leg.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

Try reducing your incline to about a 7 and step your power walk up to a jog and alternate with intervals of the power walk @ 15. If you can tolerate a running pace, do that for 2 minute increments and alternate with 2 minutes of your normal pace and incline. You wouldn't even believe how much it can change your results.
