I have been into physical fitness all my life. I have also tried numerous workout programs over the years to improve my fitness level. Some of these include Work out of the day programs (WOW), various circuit programs, sport (Boxing, karate, and combatives) fitness programs, military (Green Beret, Ranger and SEAL workouts) fitness programs and many other fitness routines.
Even at my advanced age and medical issues I still workout every day in the pool. Since I am always looking for new fitness routines I purchased this book (10,000 Steps a Day to your optimal weight by Greg Isaacs), which also comes with a pedometer. This 257 page volume explains the program in great detail. There are 12 chapters covering the following areas: making the commitment, on your mark, get set, gear up, get moving, start losing, pick up the pace, mix it up, stay on track, warning: excess fat is harmful to your health, step it up and the finishing step. This last chapter shows various other exercises you can do to enhance the results of the 10,000 step program.
Even though the book claims that walking is a natural exercise it will still take a lot of effort to work up to that 10,000 steps a day goal. Nevertheless, if you follow the advice in this program you will get into great shape and be better able to control your weight. If you enjoy walking as an exercise you should check out this book. It has some great advice for anyone seeking a simple and effective workout program.
