I love ABBA, so when YouTube recommended this workout to me, I needed to try it. It is by a new-to-me YouTube fitness channel called Up to the BEat Fit. This cardio walk is led by Gina B. She is in Sydney, Australia. I loved this little walk. It is 14 minutes long, set to great ABBA music, entirely low impact but it moves! Not super intense, but for a low impact walk, it was pretty vigorous. And Gina B is so cute. She has lots of energy and she is very encouraging. Since this workout is only 14 minutes, I followed it up with another walk from Gina B: Get 2000 Steps/Fat Burning Walk–another fun walk with great music. I think I’ve found another winner for my doubles workouts!
