30 Minute Marching Workout with Cardio Bursts

This workout caught my eye on YouTube when I did a search for walking workouts, so I decided to give it a try. I have never heard of Jenny Ford. She is very cute and has great energy! This wasn’t an advanced or tough workout, but Jenny seemed to be working hard. She did this in conjunction with SelectHealth. I don’t know what that is but when I google it, all I see is health insurance. This is made up of low impact cardio with short bursts of higher impact/more intense cardio. But very doable, nothing super intense. And if you want all low impact, just skip the bursts. I did it for a doubles workout and I enjoyed it. I am not looking for something super intense or HIIT level after work. I just want to add some cardio and steps to my day and this fit the bill perfectly.

Jenny has 3 exercisers with her. For a free YouTube workout, this was filmed pretty nicely. In the bottom right hand corner of the screen there is a tracker that counts down the percentage of the workout until you hit 100% at the very end. Jenny has a lot of workouts so you will probably be seeing more reviews appear here.

  1. Jenny has a lot of step classes on Youtube. I think she is primarily known for that. Some of her classes have tricky choreography. I am glad you are pretty much back to normal 🙂


    1. I am not a fan of tricky step choreography. I did see she had a lot of step workouts. I will have to view a few to see if they interest me. She has some strength training ones and a few more cardio walks that interest me though.
