Walk Off the Weight

Turn up the fat-melting, flab-fighting benefits of your usual walk with this fun, simple plan from walking pro Tina Vindum. Learn the optimal pace for calorie-burning and start toning your arms, abs, and butt with every stride. Lace up now to lose the jiggle fast!

Tone As You Walk

Alternate these two get-trim walks throughout the week -- the sculpting is ingeniously built in!

Walk 1: 30-Minute Upper-Body Blitz

Forget hand weights or park-bench push-ups. You can walk your way to sleek shoulders, a sculpted back, and toned arms without them by doing these upper-body exercises while you walk.

 
Walk 2: Get a Firmer Butt in 30 Minutes

Surprise: Your average walk is not a workout for your derriere. Use these rear-sculpting moves on your walk to get a better butt fast.

 
Hit the Right Pace

Aim for a walking speed that's about 75 percent of your maximum effort, meaning you can speak in choppy sentences. Depending on your level, that may be a very brisk 4.5 miles per hour (which burns 403 calories* an hour) but -- and here's the golden rule -- try not to let it dip below 3 miles per hour (211 calories an hour). That's the point at which women drop below the moderate-intensity exercise zone, the minimum you need to do to get cardio benefits from your workout.

*Calorie burns are based on a 140-pound woman.
