Flow and pulse on the cross-trainer
Indoor walking (IW) provides an effective conditioning workout on the cross-trainer (a.k.a. a walker). You also gain torso stability and balance into the bargain.
The pattern of motion on the walker resembles that of running and skiing. The entire body is engaged, resulting in a wonderful flowing sensation. A great bonus is that this workout is gentle on your joints, regardless of whether you choose to take it easy or really want to challenge yourself.
The workout in Indoor walking distans takes advantage of the varying character of the music. The leader guides and motivates you through the session and describes how it should feel: heavy-going uphill, pleasant and comfortable, or leaning forwards and breathing hard. It is up to you to choose and regulate the resistance settings on your own walker. Get walking!
