One-Mile Wake Up and Walk Workout

By , Jessica Smith, Certified Personal Trainer
One of my favorite ways to start the day is with a morning walk. Not only is walking a great exercise to gently wake up your entire body, but it also boosts energy levels and activates your brain. This one-mile, indoor power-walking workout will help you start the day off on the right foot, no matter what the weather is like outside. Squeeze in some extra daily steps and give your body and brain a wake-up call at any time of day with this fast-paced mile workout. Using a mix of moves and directional change, we'll avoid joint strain while keeping your body and brain awake and alert. 

We're going to hit the road right away so be ready to start walking at a brisk pace once you hit play.
Be sure to watch out for Peanut, our French bulldog pup, in this video. She heard we were going for a walk and wanted to get in on the action.

Did you enjoy this walk? You won't want to miss our new ''Walk On: 5 Fat Burning Miles'' DVD , which features five targeted one mile routines plus two bonuses--'The Strong Feet and Ankles Workout'' and ''The Strong Knees and Hips Routine--designed to help you walk strong and pain free for years to come.
