Ask the Expert: How to shape up with a walking plan
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- A local viewer wants to know what's the best way to shape up and slim down with a walking program?
Whether you want to step it up outside or feel like adding in a few steps inside the gym, personal fitness trainer Don Gallucci says walking may give some people an advantage over running.
Gallucci of TriHealth said, "Running may be detrimental, walking may be beneficial."
It can be detrimental, for example, to people with bad knees. For Mike Bochmovich, running really wasn't an option after knee surgery. He's made great progress in recovery with a walking and strength training program.
Mike Bochmovich said, "The main thing is just moving better and being able to lift, do the things I didn't think I was gonna be able to do after my knee replacement."
Don't underestimate how much both can pick up your spirits! As for dropping pounds, walking can do that too. Mike has dropped about twenty so far.
He said, "It's taken me about a year and a half, that's the way I want to do it."
