30-Minute Latin Spice Walking Workout

By , Jessica Smith, Certified Personal Trainer
Walking workouts are convenient, easy to do, and so great for your health (and your waistline!). But walking indoors can get a little repetitive sometimes, and since my Mom and I both love Zumba, we thought it might be fun to infuse some of the Latin-inspired dance movements into a walking-based workout! So if you're looking for a way to spice up your walking routine, try joining us for this fun, easy to follow, low impact dance walk that's appropriate for all fitness levels.
 
Working on a carpeted surface? Try this workout barefoot and/or modify some of the twisting-type movements to help protect your knees. 
 
Come on and dance walk with us! (Be sure to watch this one all the way till the end for a little laugh!)

Was following along on carpet and was difficult for me to keep up the pace when moving the knees rapidly. I just improvised and it was a good workout :) Report

It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.

Fun! Thanks Report
Got me moving! Report
This is a great alternative to the other workout videos I do. I really love Jessica Smith's workout viideos that are included in the Workout Challenges that SparkPeople provide. Report
Liked it! Report
Good music for movin' and groovin' Report
The music is not as Latin as I like! Report
Need to get some of those so that I can do that in my home. Report
Fun workout! Report

That's great you work out with your mom. Report
I haven't sweated like this in a LONG while. Love this!!! Report
I love the outtakes and your mom is great! Report
I loved this work out wish there was a way to add it to our tracker.. Report
Walk & dance combo....so much fun! Report
I did the complete work out...wow...it was tough (I'm 62 and out of shape) but it was great! Report
I liked this workout as it is low impact but fun like zumba Report
Love low impact. Still doing Zumba 3x/week but this is a nice break. Report
I' m a Jessica's routines follower, I love the way she works. This one is very funny, but you sweat a lot.... Report
Well, I'm in pain now. Did all 30 minutes! Report
Love it! I did this but did my own version. Jessica motivates me even though I can't do everything in the same way. I make it work for me. Report
Boy, do I agree, CATNKY! If you have knee issues or workout on carpet--be very careful! I already modify to bend my wrist in the opposing direction and to back off the speed to move safely, but I still twisted my knee. I'll need to do more modifications in the future or just substitute a different workout completely. (I'm not sorry the video stopped 20 minutes in & I got an error message, saying come back later--um, no thanks.) Report
If you do this workout, accommodate for bad knees. Report
I made 15 mins this time, going to try it again in a week and see if i can make all 30 - loved it so far even with my -1000 dance skills i was (mostly) able to keep up just got way too tired today -lots of drama today will try again when im well rested. Report
Just did this workout for the first time. I really liked the combination of zumba/dance and walking. I love zumba, but I'm not good at jumping/running moves so I appreciated this hybrid workout! Report
