  • Love walking. I walk everyday for a hour and ten minutes or more. I have to get back to walking five miles in a hour and fifteen minutes. I even have bursitis in my left hip that pains me alot. Even when I am walking.
  • Walking is certainly tough for some people. My mom can barely walk at all. I walk a few miles every day. Everyone is different.
  • Walking is not tough! I started walking 10 weeks ago, 2 or 3 days a week, 3 miles a day and gradually building up speed, distance, and frequency. Now walking 6 miles a day 6 days a week, have lost 32 pounds in 10 weeks. I have had a plastic kneecap since I was 15 yo, now 56 yo. You CAN do it if I can!

    by now I'm just keeping it simple by walking and doing yoga so I can improve my breathing and finally go to the gym and work on firming up.

    This is a great article. Everyone can do something--it doesn't have to be extreme. I love Zumba too but right now all I am waiting for is my doctor to release me from restrictions so I can begin *walking* again. Its only been just over a week but I miss it terrible. Aerobic exercise is addictive. The body actually wants to do it!
  • I love the overview this article provides. It is perfect instruction for what I am working on now. Thank you.
    I'll increase the frequency of my cardio and keep the strength training on alternate days.
  • It might be a good idea to read Sparkpeople's more informative articles on the differences between aerobic & anaerobic exercise. This one seems to over-simplify things. People with high blood pressure, heart or health issues should consult a doctor. Even moderate exercise has terrific benefits.

    only thing is a have osteoporosis and osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, and lower spine. only i can do is walking.
  • Yeah it would be great IF I wasn't so out of shape and ASTHMATIC. SIGH. Even when I was younger and fitter it was a struggle to work my way up. Too bad I didn't keep up with it.
  • Zumba changed my LIFE!!! I have lost 100 lbs thanks to ZUmba !!! If you love it as much as I do check out my zumba page on Face book!! I would Love to hear from you!! its Zumba Loco with Laci. Let me know you your part of Sparkle :) XOXO
  • ...and aerobic exercise keeps the lymph system operating as it should.
  • I also LOVE Zumba -- and I do water aerobics -- which is a deceptively GREAT workout! (And especially great when spending time in the jacuzzi afterwards!)
  • I do a little cardio every day, even on weight training days. This leaves me energized all day long. I love to ride my bike on days when I'm "resting" from working out. It's just plain fun!! It reminds me of those days past when I was a kid zooming around the neighborhood without a care in the world.
