  • 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. - 10/21/2013 8:58:05 PM
  • Walking is certainly tough for some people. My mom can barely walk at all. I walk a few miles every day. Everyone is different. - 7/22/2013 8:44:20 AM
  • 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! - 9/15/2012 12:02:06 AM

    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. - 11/18/2011 2:39:02 PM

    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! - 11/17/2011 7:21:31 AM
  • 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. - 4/11/2011 4:32:47 AM
  • 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. - 11/26/2010 1:06:54 AM

  • 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. - 11/17/2010 8:17:34 PM

  • ...and aerobic exercise keeps the lymph system operating as it should. - 11/17/2010 11:31:22 AM
  • 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!) - 11/17/2010 9:41:05 AM
  • 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. - 11/17/2010 6:55:48 AM

    I cannot do many of the exercises. At 80 years old many of my joints scream back at me when I try to do things that I know I can't. I can use the Cross Country skiing machine though (it is called the Gilette machine). It doesn't hurt my knees or my legs. If you slow start, it is great. Joan - 8/13/2010 4:01:37 PM
