I have a number of walking tapes and CDs and this one is, to me, the best. The music is great and I often find myself dancing while I walk. The selections follow seamlessly so you never miss a beat, and the helpful suggestions, read by Rita Morena, are good. The CD includes a set of stretches and a calendar for keeping track of your progress, and the two programs let you move from Easy to Intermediate. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a great walking program.
I have many walking tapes, but sometimes I just want the encouragement without all the blather. This CD set a very nice pace, and I found Rita "speaking up" periodically helped to keep me focus when I started to drift off. One advantage to this over my iPod playlist is sometimes the music beat is too fast, and I'll get so caught up in the increased tempo that I risk straining something. I bought 2 more copies for family members.
I find I get bored easily when out walking,so the Healthy Heard Walking CD seems to keep me focused and gives me a goal to look forward to. I would recommend it as a useful tool for getting out of the house and moving!
I brough this tape based on the reviews. I found there was way too much talking on this tape. It was very annoying and the music was too slow for intermediate walkers ready for a faster pace.
A very well thought out CD. I feel as if there is a coach with me every step of the way.
This cd is worth it's weight in gold. It has a great beat for anyone to walk to and is easy to follow. It gives encouragement and actually times the walk out. It's informative and most of all...not boring. The second half of the cd give you something to work towards. It's a great cd.
I need a more pronounced beat in my walking, and music that's easier to listen to, or at least doesn't make me feel like I'm in the elevator going up to see the cardiologist instead of trying to postpone the visit for a few years.
I just purchased my 2nd copy of this walking CD as a gift. I walk 5-6 days a week and never get bored with this music. The beat of the music in the background helps me to keep a steady pace, up the hills or on the level.
