If You Love Indoor Walking Workouts, These 7 Will Burn Calories and Help You Lose Weight

Yes, you can lose weight and get leaner and stronger just by walking! Certified personal trainer and kinesiologist Johanna Sophia (growwithjo on YouTube) knows firsthand that walking works, since it helped her lose 50 pounds after her pregnancy. She told POPSUGAR that her best friend inspired her to start making these walking workouts, as she lives in a place where no gyms are open. Her friend lives in an apartment and Sophia has to be quiet during her child's naptime, so these quiet, low-impact workouts were perfect.

Another reason she created these workouts was to make fitness accessible for beginners who have a hard time following fancy or complicated moves from trainers. "I wanted to create something simple and easy to follow where you could also get your steps in at home," Sophia said. We've rounded up all the indoor walking workout videos she's created, so you can mix up the workouts you do each week and feel inspired by her positivity to keep moving.
