I joined the gym multiple times. And then I quit. And then I joined. And then I quit.
And then I realized…hey, I’m a busy mom and sometimes I just don’t have extra time to take a gym break- but I do have time to fit in a 30 minute exercise on my living room floor.
Most moms I know who don’t join a gym typically take a walk around our neighborhood or go hiking or even jogging around the track at one of our local colleges. I’ve just always been a gym buff and have been stuck on the idea of a good workout equaling a trip to the gym.
Although I miss my Zumba classes, I’ll have to say I’ve seen comparable fitness results through my online walking DVD programs.
When I first started the Leslie Sansone walking workouts, I didn’t think it would fit my style. I was thinking, “Honestly, what can a bit of marching do for me?” In my world it was all about the powerful punch of kickboxing moves or the rhythm-shaking zumba salsa, melting those fatty flabs away. I needed something to really get me moving. And I didn’t think a simple walking in place would cut it for me.
Well. I was wrong.
