Walking Running Workout | 30 Minutes

Walk, Run, and Fight Belly Fat on the Treadmill

Adding sprint bursts to your treadmill workout is a true game changer, even if you're new to running and mix walking into your workout. Playing with speed burns more calories, stokes your metabolism to burn more calories after your workout, and helps increase your speed as a runner. Plus, mixing your speeds helps fight belly fat — talk about a winning combination.

The speed bursts in this workout only last 30 seconds with a full minute to recover. But the moderate pace is intended to push you, too. The first sprint may be slower than the last since you are warming up!
