I live in an area where is rains more often than it doesn't... so walking outside can be challenging. To keep up with my 10,000 steps a day program, I use the Leslie Sansone walking DVDs. I highly recommend them for beginners or any walker... they are great for those days when you can't get out.

I am doing way better with my walking program since I started walking indoors with the walking videos on Dr. Oz's RealAge site. I still walk outdoors in comfortable weather but with indoor walking the heat, rain, wind, mean dogs, traffic, and blisters pose no obstacles.
The program is in two parts of approximately 15 minutes each and is adequate but not grueling--the equivalent of a brisk 2-mile walk. It also requires very little floor space--I do it in my air-conditioned hallway. Plus, the video provides me friendly company and appropriately-paced music.
I love the burst of energy that I get after working out! I have "Walk Away the Pounds" (Leslie Sansone), PodRunner Intervals, and 5K101.com. I have no excuse to NOT get my workouut in. Rain, sleet, snow, extreme heat.... bring it on! I have my tools for a sustainable indoor and outdoor workout plan.
I set a goal to knock out my workout before noon today, but I couldn't stop watching America's Next Top Model.going I wanted to just keep going. SOLUTION: I completed a 30mins PodRunner Interval and 15mins of a 5K101.com track and knocked 2.46mi before noon...INDOORS! That's awesome!
