As your online trainer and motivator I always want to encourage you simply to be the healthiest version of you. So I came up with a fun active challenge for you and I have grouped together 6 existing walking videos of mine to create a 10 Thousand Steps in one day Playlist.
This idea sprang to mind whilst we have all been in Lockdown over the world, as many of us have reduced our daily step count. This is a fun way of actively increasing it back up again.
To do this free challenge simply follow the 2 steps below to complete the challenge.
Please note that if you are new to exercise then it is always a good idea to consult with your doctor first. This is a tough challenge and it is important that you only do what feels right and if you need to rest then do. Please see below for full details on Health and Safety•
Make sure you are in comfortable workout gear, I would recommend even though you are doing this at home still wear your trainers and for the ladies even though this is a low impact workout I would still recommend wearing a sports bra with your workout gear.
Have a glass of water to hand, make sure you have good internet connection as you will need to be online to view my virtual walks.
This Playlist has 6 Indoor Walking Workouts, each one varies in length and location (which makes this fun so you won’t get bored). To complete the challenge will take just over 1 hour and 45 minutes.
Make the most of the breaks in between the videos to have some water, they will automatically lead straight on to the next walking video.
So it really is that simple, all you need to do when you are ready to take on this challenge is hit the play button below.
On completion of the final walk, it is important that you do the full cool down stretch that I recommend.
Once you have completed your stretches, then come back to this page and take a picture with your phone, or a screen grab of the rosette and share it on social media, so all of LucysSquad can give you a virtual “high five” for completing this challenge. Be sure to tag me @LucyWyndhamRead and this use tag #LucysSquad10kChallenge Why not share this page and challenge with anyone you know to do 10 thousand steps in a day.
