The 7-Day Walking Challenge for Beginners

Shape Up Size Down, a new kind of fitness that’s for anyone and everyone, regardless of size, weight or age. 7 Day Get Moving Challenge involves, you guessed it…movement! Here’s how it works:

The movement involved is walking with high knees. This challenge is about giving every 100%, whatever that is for you. There are 3 versions to this challenge, choose the version that’s challenging, but doable. If you think you can only lift your feet 2″ off the floor, do your very best to lift them 2 1/2″.

If you walk a lot at work or around the house, it doesn’t count for this challenge. You must do deliberate walking specifically for this challenge. In other words, your only focus will be to perform the chosen workout.

If you perform a workout and feel that you can do one more challenging, then choose one at a higher level of difficulty. Choose from either: Version A, B or C. Each routine will be completed 3 times daily for 7 days continuously. For example:

  • 7 a.m. Complete chosen routine
  • 1 p.m. Complete chosen routine
  • 6 p.m. Complete chosen routine

Choose your 7 Day Get Moving Challenge below. To perform this challenge you will need water for hydration, a second hand to time routines, and commitment.

  • This challenge can also be performed while sitting, if necessary. Hold to the sides of a stable chair, keep your back straight, alternate lifting legs as high as possible and tap the floor with your foot when returning to the starting position.
  • Or, if you are ready, feel free to perform this challenge while walking outdoors, on the track, in the mall, or where ever it is safe to do so, and you will need room to move about if not walking in place.

Be sure to grab your co-workers, neighbors and anyone else who has an interest in starting on a life changing fitness journey.  Let’s get started!

  1. I typically go 3.5- 4 mile Power-walk for 65-75min. Follow-up with 20-30 min of Pilates, Yoga, or Stretches/Floor execises. This is the best workout. Follow this with either lemon water, a green tea, or a detox tea. & 3-4 bottle waters. Evening exercises are the best! Bedtime Sleep is much better. Get Active! ???????? ????????????????????⚽
