LESLIE SANSONE'S WALKING FOR EVERYBODY/INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
Walking is an excellent way to maintain your fitness level during your pregnancy and great for shedding post-baby pounds. If you're looking for someone who can motivate you to get moving, check out Leslie Sansone's Walking for Everybody, a 40-minute musical cassette tape. Whether used indoors or outdoors, it's designed to get you walking at steady clip (rather than a leisurely stroll), which will help you burn fat and maintain or achieve cardiovascular fitness. Sansone starts out with a warm-up, and then introduces each new upbeat song with some motivating words. Your heart rate is elevated to a moderate pace as you cover two and one-half miles. The tape ends with a cool-down and a weight-loss tip from Sansone. Of course, before starting any exercise program you should check with your doctor.
