10-minute Indoor Walking Workout for Seniors, Beginner Exercisers

51  comments

This 10-minute indoor walking workout will help improve your cardiovascular health by getting your heart rate up and increasing strength with exercises that work your legs, glutes, core and upper body. Perfect for seniors and beginner exercisers. This workout is about 1200 steps, more or less depending on your pace.

Join my 81-year-old mom and me as we walk and say yes to next steps to good health. Take her advice: "Don't sit around. Get up and walk!"

Marching or walking in place is the foundation for the workout. The 30-second rounds will also work on your balance and coordination, which is important to prevent falls, the leading cause of non-fatal and fatal injuries among seniors.

Be sure to warm up before doing this workout. Do one of our warm up videos:
✳️ 7-minute Warm Up:
✳️ 8-minute Warm Up:
✳️ 10-minute Warm Up:

After the workout, do our additional cooldown session to get your heart rate back to normal and stretch out your muscles:
✳️ 6-minute Cooldown:

    • I started working out with you and your mom a month ago. I had open heart surgery last november and was told to do cardio rehab I am 70 years old. I told myself to save the money. I found you on utube. I have done a 20 min workout once a day sometimes not often maybe twice. I don’t seem to be loosing weight. I eat basically salads with chicken and other sorts of meat. Do you have any suggestions for me? Am I doing something wrong? I really get a good workout with you.I work my heart up pretty good.

  • I just love your work outs. I find I smile all the way through even though finding it tough at times ( I am 72) but your gentle incouragement and your inspirational mum keep me trying. Feels good to reach across the world from my home in a small village in England. Thank you for making me fitter and smile!!

    • Wonderful! You are 72-years-young! We are so happy to help you stay active and brighten your day. It warms our hearts that we can exercise together across the miles. Keep warm and keep moving! You will get stronger and your endurance will improve by staying with it. Thank you so much and see you soon!

  • I took my down syndrom bro out of his group home last year to protect him from covid. He has poor balance and we have been doing this for a week now. He is doing very well. He also thinks you are pretty and blows kisses while he is walking. Next week we will tackle another one of your videos to challenge him. Thank you so much for making videos for the forgotten population.

  • I have been exercising with your workout and it find it more enjoyable than anything else I have done. It is comforting to see you work with your lovely Mom who allows those of us up in years not to be intimidated by young, strong trainers. No matter what age, it is great to be able to move even if it is a little less strenuous and slower than most people. I thank you for creating a gem for all of us seniors. Thanks for your lovely Mom giving the rest of us hope.
