Get a Boost With This Motivational 1-Mile Walk With Jessica Smith

By , Jessica Smith, Certified Personal Trainer
Looking for a little inspiration to go along with your daily walk? Consider tossing the headphones and bumping beats aside to try this walk and talk on for size. 

Using a metronome set to 140 beats per minute, you'll keep a steady walking pace throughout our chat, hitting that one-mile marker in about 14 quick minutes. In this video, I'll be discussing hte importance of staying grateful for what we have while working toward what we want. In the journey to health and fitness, we often focus only on the future, those goals and how we'll feel once we achieve them. However, taking care to be mindful of the present, the work you are putting in to reach your goals and how you feel day to day is key in enjoying and embracing the whole journey. 

Hit play when you're ready to get stepping.

Stop starting over, start transforming! Join me for our most comprehensive program to date, the "Walk STRONG: 6-Week Total Transformation System!"

I use her videos very often, but I also bought several. I just love her and her sweet little dog, Peanut! Her husband is a master judo/karate. His workouts are really tough! Well, to be honest, i'm 58 yrs old. That might have something to do with it as well! HA Report
