Comcast or X-Finity Fitness Video Review #3

1 Mile Walk


In September when my broken toe seemed to be healed, I decided to give the Comcast 1 mile walk video with Kendra Kemerley a try. I have to admit I'm a Leslie Sansone 2 and 3 mile walk groupie and for those who don't know, Leslie is the Queen of the walking videos. So, I was a little bias when I decided to try Kendra's video.
The 1 mile walk is a 15 minute low-impact workout that can be done in any room in your house or apartment, even in a small space. She starts off with a short warm-up and then the speed picks up and you are marching, kicking, moving side to side at a brisk pace.

Even though I prefer Leslie's walking videos, Kendra offers an excellent walking routine also. The only problem I had with the video, she cools you down but doesn't do a stretch at the end. You would have to your own stretching and I would recommend a two or three minute quick stretch of the hamstrings, quadriceps and the calves. Other than no flexibility routine at the end, this would be a great video to do in the morning and or the evening for a beginner exerciser. I give it 3 out of 4 barbells.
Good

    1. No, it is really low-impact aerobics but the patterns are less intricate.

  5. I also have never done a walking video but would totally be down for trying this! I'll have to see if DirecTV or one of my other streaming services offers something like this #wowlinkup

  7. OK neat, I will try to view some low impact workouts for modifications. I teach fitness classes and my audience is a VERY mixed level crowd. It's good to have something for everyone.
