Our brand new “Walk On: Walk The Weight Off” program is here! 

To help you decide if this program right for you, here are some answers to a few frequently asked questions about the plan:

Have these DVDs been released before or are they available as individual DVDs anywhere?

This box set includes 3 ALL NEW workout DVDs that have never been released before and will not be available for individual sale (you save more $$ by buying the full set!).

If I have the “Walk On: 21 Day Weight Loss Plan” should I get this set too? Are any of the workouts the same?

If you enjoyed our 21 day program and are looking for a new plan to follow it up with, this may just be what you need! While our 30 day plan includes all new routines, you will see some familiar favorites when it comes to moves and formats (like our low impact HIIT).

What’s different about this 30 day program is that we’ve included more options, such as shorter and longer walks (15, 30 and 40 minutes), more strength training (with both resistance bands and dumbbells), countdown clocks, bonus routines and more!

How many workouts are included?

In total, there are 7 walking workouts plus 3 bonus routines:

DVD #1: “Walk On: 3 Weight Loss Walks” includes 15 Minute Calorie Burst, 30 Minute Fat Blaster, 40 Minute Mega Burn, BONUS: 15 Minute Standing Abs (100 Minutes)

DVD #2: “Walk On: Major Metabolism Booster” includes 30 Minute Pyramid Power Walk, 30 Minute Strength Interval Walk, BONUS: 20 Minute Chair Stretch Routine (80 Minutes)

DVD #3: “Walk On: 5 Day Fat Burn” includes 30 Minute HIIT Walk “Party”, 30 Minute Toning Walk, BONUS: 15 Minute Healthy Back Workout (75 Minutes)

THAT’S 4.25 HOURS OF ACTUAL WORKOUT TIME!

What kind of equipment will I need?

We use a flat resistance band, and a set of dumbbells (optional) in the strength workouts. We also recommend a mat for hard floors in a few bonus segments as well as a sturdy chair and a phone book or block (also optional) for the chair stretch bonus.

Is there a music only option?

We don’t currently include a music only option for our workout videos. We feel it’s so important that you stay connected to your body and movement with our cues and form reminders (no matter how many times you’ve heard them) to get the most out of the workouts and prevent injury.

Are the DVD menus programmable?

You can select a “play all” option on each DVD, but because this program was designed for best results to work with our custom 30 day schedule, the individual DVD menus are not customizable.

If I purchase a digital download, how do I access the 30 day plan?

Once you purchase the digital download set you’ll receive the exact same program that’s printed on the back of the DVD set box as a printable, pdf file (it’s also included below in this post so you can also review it here anytime).

Part of what is included with your digital download purchase is our individual customer support, so if you have any questions or need help troubleshooting any time after you’ve made your purchase simply contact our amazing Platform Purple team here.

Are any of these workout filmed outdoors?

As many of you know, we film our workouts here in tropical Miami, Florida. While we love the sunshine here, there is only a short window of time during the year when we can shoot outdoors because of the heat and humidity! While we couldn’t film any of these outside without completely melting down during this particular program, you will see our beloved palm trees and pool through the windows on our bright set.

How much weight will I lose on this plan?

We don’t make any guarantees of weight loss or specific results with this plan (or with any of our products) as much of your results will also depend on your nutrition and calorie intake.

However, we’ve created this 30 day rotation using what we consider to be the best, most balanced mix of intensity, workout length and training modalities to maximize your chances of seeing results not only in how you look, but also in how you feel – including improvements in your energy, strength, stamina, balance, agility and coordination levels.

To improve your results, we recommend focusing on eating healthy, whole foods that give your body energy, drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep. Aim to eliminate 250 calories a day from your diet and burn an additional 250 calories (which can typically be done with your daily walk on workout, though the exact amount will vary by individual) to lose one pound per week*.

*Results may vary. 

What is the 30 day program like?

Here is the exact program (as printed on the back of the DVD box set) so you can review the entire plan before you buy:

    Hi Jessica!

    I just purchased the digital download for this program a few weeks ago and am now onto Day #1 of Week 2 and love it! I am a fan of walking as well and would supplement a walking workout in with each workout on the weekly rotation you were sending. So this is great! I did the toning walk without a resistance band (I don’t have one yet) but still got a great workout with body weight strength and light weights when I could.

    Looking forward to the January challenge and all the fun things in 2016 – should have this one wrapped up right in time to start the new one. I recommend you to all of my friends looking for a workout plan they can stick to. You’re awesome!

    Thanks!

    Hi Jessica, I joined your site today and like your 10 min knee friendly workout from Myfitnesspal. I was recently diagnosed with Runner’s knee. I need to strengthen my thighs & lose weight (60 lbs) I was fit in my 20’s early 30’s, now I struggle with motivation, stamina & strength. I read the Walk on; 30 day program on back of the DvD. It sounds good however, I wonder as a beginner in exercise, which is best for me.

    I struggle with following through a program. With this said, should I start with the 30 day or 21 day program?

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith December 9, 2015, 10:35 am

      Hi Amy! Welcome to our community. The choice is really yours – both our 21 and 30 day plans offer beginner options throughout so feel free to start with the one that sounds like the best fit for your current needs. And, if you enjoy it you can always follow it up with the next program afterwards 🙂 Hope that helps!

    You are an amazing instructor and your workouts are challenging but doable. I used to feel hopeless when I couldn’t keep up with another very popular fitness instructor and her DVDs even though I am probably 10 years younger. I consider myself to be in pretty good shape so that was frustrating. Then I found your workout and realize you don’t have to kill yourself to get results. That was OK when I was in my 20s and 30s but not now as I approach 50. Thanks for boosting my confidence. I would recommend your DVDS to everyone. I do miss Peanut though!

    • Jessica Smith December 9, 2015, 10:36 am

      Thanks so much Connie! Yes, we have to keep Peanut out of the DVDs as she becomes quite a distraction on set! She will continue to visit us in our YouTube videos though 🙂

    I have been using fitness walking videos for a short time but only just found out about yours over the weekend. I need help I am not sure which to get as I have knee issues. Should I be getting the Walk on Walk Off 30 Day Challenge DVD set or Walk On 21 Day Weight Loss Plan ? OR which would help me with my following goals please :- I only want to drop another 3kg & need to tone my entire body up. I know you can’t spot train a specific area but my ultimate dream is to tone my stomach & have it flat again. I am 47yrs old, 174 cm tall , currently 67.1kg & ready for Fitness Walking !! Help please 🙂 If I buy your dvd’s do you ship to Australia too?? Thanks for all the help it is very much appreciated 🙂

    Hello Jessica,

    Needed your suggestion on buying a right workout DVD for myself. I am new to exercises and I have been doing your 20 minute 1 mile walk from YouTube. I love your workouts as they are so much of fun. As I am still a beginner I was thinking to buy a 21 day walking DVD. Please suggest if this a good one to buy. I have been only walking for about 5 miles a day and doing your 20 minute 1 mile walk. At this point I cannot do any tough exercises so appreciate your advise/suggestion.

    • Jessica Smith October 20, 2015, 1:42 pm

      Hi! Thanks for moving with us! To answer your question, our DVDs offer 3 levels to choose from so you can start out with almost any of them as a beginner 🙂 The 21 Day plan is a great place to get started – and you can always follow along with our modifier Debbie if needed. Hope that helps. We look forward to walking with you!

    Hi Jessica!

    I’m still walking with you as I planned, but I need your advice.
    I still have pain in my neck and upper back and shoulders. I gaze I shouldn’t do strength walk with the dumbbells ( I used 1,5 kg ). But I have to get my muscles work! What should I do to get lean muscles without using dumbbells ?

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith October 19, 2015, 10:04 am

      Hi Nora! So glad to hear you are still walking with us, but so sorry to hear about your neck and shoulders! I’m afraid I can’t offer any advice as I do not know what is causing this pain. Have you seen a physical therapist and/or specialist about it? They would be more qualified to advise you on what movements you should avoid or add based on your specific condition and how you can improve it. Hope that helps 🙂

    Thanks for the 30 Day Challenge & DVDs. I did 30 days of walking with you in September and completed the Walk on 30 Day Plan on Oct. 7th. After a one week break, I am getting back to your DVDs today, starting with one of your four 21 Day Weight Loss Plan walks and then I’ll keep using 30 Plan (7 walks) and Walk on Super Set (6 walks) as well. I love all the options. I’m looking forward to participating in your next challenge. Thank you, Jessica, for all you do.

    As I’ve finished my 30 days Walking Plan, I’ve bought Walk On: 5 Fat Burning Miles Walking digital copy and tried it this morning.

    I like my new walk with you, Jessica! I couldn’t do tricks with changing fingers, but I’m sure I’ll do better with time.

    I’ve done all 5 miles at one time. I tried not to be too crazy about intensity in order to complete all 5 miles.

    I’ve decided that I’ll do 5 miles walking 3 times per week and do some of the workouts from 30 days Walking.

    See you soon!

    The 30 day September challenge was fun especially with the new DVD set. I was able to do 24 days out of the 30 day challenge. I actually got sick and missed a few days. Jessica, my favorites programs are pyramid peak, 15 minute, 30, minute, 40 minute, and the Hiit programs. I love your cardio session the best. I had a little trouble with the elastic band program but I think it might get easier the next time around. I love your standing ab routine. Looking forward to your next workout set

I often found once I got started I really got into it and left me in a better place, physically and mentally. Thank you so much for forging into this market of workouts and you and mom and Beth really did a great job! I will put together my own rotation using the workouts I have of yours this month and see how that goes. I hope you continue making good, hard, but achievable workouts in the future.

    I must confessed, I cheated on you, Jessica. Today, instead of my rest day I suddenly decided to do workout with L.S., which I did long before you.

    But my body so used to the movement I’ve been doing with this challenge! I caught myself doing movements from this Program!

    I finished with 15 min Healthy Back Routine.

    Today I’ve done a little test: read my weight before workout and after – to check the amount of water I’d lost during exercising. The result is 400 g. I don’t know whether it is good or bed, but I had coconut water after and a couple of glasses clear water when I felt thirsty.

      Hi Nora! Not to worry, we’re all about mixing up your routine whether it’s with our other workouts or someone else’s – the goog news is there are so many fantastic options out there to help you keep moving – that’s what matters most 🙂 I think it’s great you are monitoring your water intake and fluid loss, just keep paying attention to your body’s signals as you go.

    Toning Walk, back workout–done yesterday. Mega Burn–just completed this evening. All done!! 🙂 Thanks for this great program, Jessica. I think I got my exercise habit back after being consistent for the last 30 days, and that was my goal. With Mega, I got over 4700 steps, which brought my pedometer total steps up to over 13500 for the day.

I like all of the workouts, but do not favor one over another. They are all enjoyable and I feel good after each one. Twenty-nine days of exercising and I did not get bored once, rather I look forward to seeing what is coming up for the next day.

    I’ve finished 30 days challenge and started again after just 1 day rest.
    Yesterday I’ve done 30 min HIIT +15 min Standing Abs.

    Today I’ve decided to perform a morning yoga , first time, as I feel stiff after night. Couldn’t finish without doing something with Jessica and spontaneously has done 15 min Bare Body Workout for Buns, Abs and Thighs. Ohhh, can I sit for the rest of my day?

    My mum worries I dehydrated as I sweat so much. I try to drink after workout but I don’t feel very thirsty during my day.

    Oh! I’ve bought myself a new pare of jeans, 1 size smaller : what the point to have slim toned body if its hidden underneath buggy outfit ?

    I really like the variations in your workouts — the footwork is not always the same, though similar, nor is the upper body routines. And, although the workouts are repeated during the challenge, I never tire of them. So, with that said, Day 25 is completed. Oh, and I followed your recommendation regarding crossing my arms in front rather than behind my head on the Standing Abs workout — much better. No neck strain. Thanks, Jessica.

This morning I did the Healthy Back workout and I’ll do the Mega Burn after work today and actually I am looking forward to it!

    It’s my 30th and final day today. Can’t believe it’s already done! it was a fantastic journey.

    Today I’ve started 40 Min mega Burn, but after 15 min my body started to tell me it’s not happy (I was doing gardening yesterday and had not enough sleep last night and suddenly felt very hungry) so, I stopped after 15 min and add 15 Min Standing Abs. I didn’t waste my last day, just swapped one workout with another. That’s the beauty of The Program, you can tailor it according to your needs.

    Tomorrow I may do my measurements and see what has changed in the very end. Even if nothing much, I’m not going to be upset as I can feel and see changes in my body, its more toned and my front thighs musculus become harder.

    I definitely need some new bottom fitness outfeet size S as my old one got loose.

    I stepped down the weights for Day 24’s workout due to my back, but it’s still a great workout. My friends look at me funny when I share with them my workout routine — walking in your house? Once I’ve explained it and they’ve had the opportunity to view the workouts, they are excited about walking as well. It’s difficult here to walk for exercise outside, so with your videos I can walk rain or shine, wind, heat, and cold. Love them!

    Well, I think I forgot to check in yesterday….I did the Tonong walk with the Back bonus as planed. For today I did the Mega Burn walk and this morning I took a hike into the woods. I think that will be it for today. The morning walk was pretty “technique” as I had to make sure not to sprain my ankle on a rock or fall down a cliff which is kind of tiring (walking with you, Debbie and Beth is less stressfull)!

    I really love the walk with the resistance band! What fun, challenging and new moves! I’ve already gone to the store to buy a 6′ band with more resistance to beef up the challenge. On a side note, I also want to say that working out with JSTV has really improved my posture and flexibility, and has given me confidence. I just saw some photos taken of me at a formal dinner party last week and I had to say ‘wow!’ I had no idea how well my posture had improved and how toned I looked. I just know I feel good on the inside and I love working out now! No more fads for me…this is it!

    No sciatica pain today, so I was able to complete Day 22 as scheduled. Perfect timing for the healthy back routine. I am going to make it a daily part of my workout for the next week (doctor’s orders) in hopes that the flare up does not return. And, after a very busy day, the toning walk was perfect for releasing some tension.

    I skipped Active Rest Day today for the 30 Min. Fat Blaster.

    It’s 27th day today and 3 more days to go but I’ve already lost 3,085 Lbs(1,400 kg). It’s been a correct scale reading, I promise.

    I’ve enjoyed the program very much! It was fun, motivating and pleasurable. I highly recommend the Program by Jessica Smith if you want to lose weight and feel fantastic while doing this.

    I left the review on Amazon.co.uk.

    My French friend asked me how I get such a great result. I shown her the set Walk Off the Weight 30 Day Plan( Low Impact High Results Program)on Amazon.fr, but I think the DVDs in English. Jessica, do you plan to translate your DVDs on some European Languages? I think it should be voice translation rather than subtitles as subtitles may distract from the workout.

    One more please. Jessica, could you create a Workout That Boosts Your Metabolism Before Bed , please?
    See you soon!

    Today fat blaster walk plus I did the standing abs as an additional warm up. I have to stay in the office very late. My lower back gets very stiff when I sit too long. So that ab routine is good to decongest the back. I don’t know that I’ll be able to workout every day next week.
    But 2/3 of the rotation is done. Yeah!

    Day 17 of challenge is in the bag with Toning Walk and Healthy Back. Balance seemed better on back routine even with the distraction of my dog licking my legs. She, my dog, also harassed me during floor work and stood behind me when I was trying to walk. Channeling Peanut I suppose. A little extra challenge can be a good thing:-)

    Day 17 done. I can’t tell you how much I love these workouts! I really used to kind of hate the band…but after I purchased the program, I got to the store and bought the same type of band you are using (without handles) and it changed my point of view completely. The resistance is a nice change from dumbbells and the routines fly by really quickly. It is fantastic t work the back and the chest.

If I don’t increase my aerobic conditioning this month with these workouts, then there’s something wrong with me! 🙂 I’m usually not this consistent with workouts that challenge me this much, so I’m thinking my fitness level should improve with this set and I’m looking forward to that.

    Day 23 today . I’ve weighted myself straight after I finished workout which I’ve done on empty stomach. Since I’ve started the challenge , I’ve lost 2.204 Lbs. But was It right time to have my weight checked- straight after I finished my workout or I’ve been cheating myself?

    Only 7 days left to finish the challenge. I’ve already started to think what I’m going to do after, how can I make my own program based on these three fantastic DVDs. I’m 52 , having menopause and I need all the 4 variation of physical activity : cardio, strength, yoga and pilates, as well as keep my weight under control.

    Jessica, any suggestions?

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith September 17, 2015, 10:59 am

      Way to go Nora! You are doing such a fantastic job – can’t believe you are almost to the finish line already, woo hoo! You can try repeating the 30 days again and/or consider adding in some routines from our other programs if you have them (Walk On: 21 Day, 5 Fat Burning Miles, 15 Minute Fast Fat Blasts, Yoga Stretch). And good news, we’re already working on a brand new program that encompasses all of those 4 great variations you mentioned that we think you might really enjoy as well – please stay tuned for that coming in January 🙂

      To answer your question, it’s usually best to weigh in at the same time every day – typically when you first wake up (after using the restroom, before eating or drinking anything) provides the most accurate reading since after a workout you could notice changes in fluid volume. Here’s an article with 4 things to note about your scale weight that might help you better understand the numbers you are seeing too 🙂 Hope that helps!

    Day 17 is complete! Remember last week when I mentioned that my youngest daughter commented that my calves looked toner? Well, last night my oldest daughter said, “Mom, you are really looking toned. Good job.” Proud moment, indeed. With my healthy living FB group, I try to stress the importance of non-scale victories and the compliments from my daughters and noticing my clothes are fitting better are definitely 2 non-scale victories to be proud of. Oh, and the numbers on the scale haven’t change, but I’m okay with that. Thanks, Jessica, for giving me the boost I needed to get back to exercising regularly.

    • Jessica Smith September 17, 2015, 11:01 am

      Wow, I love that Anna! Congrats! You should be so proud not only for the changes you are creating in your body but the fantastic, positive body image and health example you are setting for your daughters! So happy to hear you are noticing changes and not getting too hung up on the number on the scale either! Going by how your clothes fit is a great way to measure your progress and a much better indicator of changes within your body than what the scale can reflect. Congrats to you on all of your dedication and hard work – keep it up 🙂

    Day 16 — fineto! I had a conversation with my radio colleague yesterday about your standing abs workouts. She had never heard of such of a thing. You now have a new fan!

    As much as I think my neck muscles are relaxed, I still feel them tensing up when doing the ab workouts with my hands behind my head (I barely touch my head with my fingers). Why is this? It’s the same feeling I get when I try to do crunches on the floor. Despite that, my abs definitely feel the workout and it’s a good feeling.

    • Jessica Smith September 16, 2015, 2:24 pm

      Way to go Anna! And thanks for helping spread the work about our workouts 🙂 As for your question about your neck tension during abs work, it’s hard to say what is going on without being able to see you in person. One suggestion I might recommend is to try crossing your hands over your chest instead of behind your head if you know that position creates tension in your neck area. Hope that helps 🙂 Keep up the great work!

    Day 9 done (mostly) – I love the Toning walk, so different! I had to stop during the Healthy Back workout because my DVD froze and I didn’t have the time to try and get it going again. I was most of the way through the workout. May try and do it again later if I have the time. Thanks for these great workouts!!

        Thanks Jessica! This was the first time playing that workout (didn’t have a problem with the other two workouts on the same DVD). Sometimes it’s just my DVD player.

    I just finished 1/2 of day 15 on the program. (I’m going to do the chair stretch tonight since I am pressed for time this morning.) I am enjoying the workouts, but I’m a little discouraged that my weight hasn’t dropped at all. My diet isn’t perfect, but I pretty much manage the correct calorie intake. I went from pretty much no exercise to this program – is this normal? Thanks for the great workouts!

      Hi Renee! You are doing great with the challenge! And please hang in there with your scale weight. So many things influence the number you see on the scale. This video may help explain a few things about the process and what else you can try to help speed up your results: https://youtu.be/mF_RtggLBWw?list=PLe5P3ayTEj7Z5PeoccxP8QV5mPOZ6oRIw Hope that helps and keep up the great work 🙂

    Due to my busy day, I’ve decided to break up the 2 workouts for Day 15 instead of completing them back to back. I just finished the Strength Interval (especially love the music around the 20 minute mark) and will complete the Chair routine when I return home this evening. I’m hot, I’m sweaty (I mean sparkly — sorry Peanut), and I feel great! Ready to start my day!

    Substituted Tred & Shred from 21 Day Walk series for some variety. It’s a very different workout from Strength Interval. I love both. Then did new YouTube Arms workout (very nice one) and Short & Sweet Stretch (a fave) instead of Chair Stretch. Feel really worked out and will definitely feel it tomorrow. At least I got to see my little friend Peanut;-)

    Sorry I haven’t checked in for a few days. I had to skip Friday due to hip pain. On Saturday I felt better so I did the Strength Interval Walk. On Sunday, I had a bad headache (it’s always something!!), so I had to skip again. Today I did Day 12’s HIIT Walk. So–I’m a little behind but I am hoping to catch up before the 30 days are up. I’m still here and I’m still in this!

    Hi Jessica, I’m still in, just didn’t check in here the last 2 days. I’m still switching workouts around, because I’m still waiting for my new resistance band and my triceps are very sore from the new Upper Body Workout on Saturday ???????????? But I love it ☺️. So I skipped the Strength Interval Walk and again the Toning Walk and went on with day 18 today, HIIT (yay!!) and added the Turbo Charged Mile. How important do you consider the Active Rest Day? I feel very bad when I don’t work out at all 1 day and so ignore it, but maybe I shouldn’t? Do you think it is important for the body to rest 1 day a week? Just your personal opinion ???? thanks!! Petra

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith September 14, 2015, 9:09 pm

      Hi Petra! You are doing great making things work while you wait for your new band 🙂 Great job! As for your question, since we alternate high and low intensity days it can be safe to skip an active rest day if your body feels OK with it. Just keep paying attention to how you feel and if you notice feeling more fatigued, sore or overworked than usual, you may want to consider adding it back in to your schedule – and not feel guilty at all about it 🙂 Hope that helps!

    I was travelling all day yesterday, so it was my rest day. Today it was my 19th day, Strength Interval Walk, but I changed it for 40 Min Mega Burn as I didn’t feel enough energy to work with weights.
    I’ve forced myself to pit my fitness outfit on but as soon as I saw Jessica and the girls, my energy started to increase. And this is always like that, feeling tired and no desire to exercise, but as soon as I see Jessica and hear her voice, I can do it!

    I have read several reviews about your new series. One review said that the “30 Minute Strength Interval Walk” has a lot of squats & lunges and was hard on her knees. My knees are also sensitive to squats & lunges. I am 64 and have some joint issues, nothing major, not seeing a doctor for it, just the knees get sore if I do too much of that kind of stuff. Will this make the “30 Minute Strength Interval Walk” difficult for me?

      Hi Barbara! Thanks for your great question. We do some squat and lunge variations in the strength walks but my Mom Debbie always shows a modification (though you may also need to modify further for your specific knee issues since everyone is different). Hope that helps 🙂

        Yes, that helps. I have all your other Walk-On dvds. I love them. At 64 they are just what I’ve needed to stay active and yet avoid injury from workouts that are too taxing for my joint issues. Thank you for producing these awesome workouts.

    – Day 9 I did Kickbox Ballet Body Sculpt in place of the band walk, then realized the back workout has band work in it too, lol. I did it, but used weights for a few of the moves. Doing both of thes together made me feel so thorughly worked!! (and sore, lol)
    Day 10, I did the 30 Minute Fat Blaster (loved it!!). Now, for Day 11!!, I am doing the Strength interval Walk. I love this one and hope I can do it again without too many modifications. Such a blessings to be able to move daily!! And have workouts that don’t intimidate or cause dread!! Bless you!

        Well, I have gotten thru Day 13 so far. (well, i forgot to do the stretch yesterday, but I will catch up on it). I really need to let it go for 2 weeks because this week is crazy and next week is my trip. I will exercise daly, but i need to do what I can, when I can. But I have really enjoyed checking in and the challenge. I LOVE this set!!Anyway, will you still be around for support if i am 2 weeks behind everyone else? I don’t want to end up sick or something on my trip for trying to do too much when it is supposed to be healing for me, but i am afraid to lose the accountability and support- and I know you have a busy life. I guess I just need to know how long this check in will be around for, lol. I plan to stay active,but I need to be able to do things on the fly.Please advise. If you can see my e-mail address, please e-mail me and let me know. Either way, I still love you!! I guess i just don’t want to feel like I am quitting, lol.
        Hugs and many thanks!!

            Bless you and thankyou! not gone till Saturday, but its just hard to have a det plan this week, such as yesterday…with Dr appts and all, I couldn’t work out till late at night and had to do something gentle (been missing your fusiony flowy workouts and one of them was perfect last night!) I do other people’s workouts too, lol, but am in a happy rut right now.
            Thankyou and bless you! <3

    Day 11 done. I switched between 8 and 5 pounds dumbells this time because my back and legs can handle more weigth. Maybe next time I’ll try a bit more on the more static exercises.

    Day 11 Done – Strength Interval Walk (3 lbs.) & Jade Teta’s workout 3 of 3 for this week. I have done all the 30 Day Plan workouts at least once, so I can truly say that I appreciate the variety in each and every workout as well as the different warm ups and cool downs – up to 5 minutes is perfect! I love double warm ups and cool downs when I do more than workout at a time. Sticking with the schedule now plus bonuses when possible so I can make it through the entire 30 days. Thank you so much, Jessica!

    Well, phooey! I have to change the schedule again. I’ve got some sort of low back/side pain that I believe is muscular in nature (pretty sure!), so I’m taking my Active Rest Day today and just doing some light walking and easy stretching and back p.t. exercises. I can hope for a better day tomorrow to tackle the strength interval walk again. I was really looking forward to doing that one without being sick!

    Woo-hoo! I just finished Day 11 and I feel fantastic. I have to admit that though overall I’ve been looking forward to these workouts, today I had to force myself a little but I did it because I’m committed to the challenge. And I’m so glad I did. I love when that happens. One of my friends says: “You’re never going to regret having a great workout, so what do you have to lose?”

    I definitely sweat and have no doubt about the metabolism boost. I also love the idea that getting strong is just as important as losing weight. The greatest thing about these workouts is that they are something I can stick with – I feel like I’m working hard and seeing results but I’m not dying. If I dreaded them, I wouldn’t do them, LOL. I know going in that I can push myself to my limits and still have room to keep getting fitter and stronger. I love the different options – even just knowing they’re there if I need them.

    And you’re so encouraging, Jessica! You just have a great way about you. Reading the comments, I love seeing how people from all walks (no pun intended) of life are inspired by your approach and the program’s flexibility. So excited to keep going!

    I just finished the first week of Walk the Weight off and I LOVE IT!!!! I have done Turbo fire and T25, and I am in absolute LOVE with this 30 day workout plan!!!! After every workout I feel great. Like I got a great workout without feeling like I am going to die!! I have done your workouts for years on you tube, but I LOVE having these dvd’s. After the strength interval walk I was definitely sore the next day, but not in a “I can’t even move” kind of way. It was perfect. Plus you are so inspiring and make the workouts fun. I actually cried after finishing the first workout because I made it and your support just shines through the screen. <3 I love these dvd's.

      Great job today Nora! We increased the length between rest days towards the end of the program to help bump up the end of the plan a bit, but feel free to add them in any time you see fit. Since many of our routines aren’t all high intensity it’s still safe to go a little longer in between active rest days 🙂 Hope that helps!

    “Mom, you are really looking good. You are getting toner and toner. Way to go! Miss Jessica would be proud.” — My 13 year-old daughter said this to me last night. Brought tears to my eyes. Growing up the chunky kid, I realized a few years ago that it’s my decision to get healthy and fit and to look the best I can given the body I have — thick thighs, round bottom, and all. And by accepting that, I am sending a message to my daughters to embrace who they are and to have a positive self-image.

    Day 17 today – Toning walk.

    My question today is about proteins. I make protein shakes with powder, spinach, Maca powder, some berries or fruits. But this morning after workout I’ve been craving for a chicken breast. I went to a shop and bought cooked chicken breast. I feel a little bit down and tired lately, sometimes annoyed without a reason. My husband said this is the way my body tells me I need more protein.
    Is he right?

    • Jessica Smith September 10, 2015, 8:15 pm

      Hi Nora! Great job with today’s workout. I don’t really provide much nutrition advice as that’s not my area of expertise. I definitely believe however that your body sends you signals, so if yours was asking for chicken, it must have needed it 🙂 There are many things that can cause fatigue and irritability, but I’d pay attention to see how you feel when you make adjustments to your diet. If you find it helps you, I would say go for it.

    Just finished Day 9 and am feeling really good. The healthy back bonus is great. A lot of ab exercises hurt my back, which worries me because I’m working toward my karate black belt and I fear this will be a factor in my test. I’m always looking for ways to build back strength. My cat did NOT want me to finish this workout, BTW. He’s not as chill as Peanut! Every time I hit the floor he was trying to convince me to stop and snuggle. But I finished (and he’s sleeping on me as I type this).

    Haven’t checked in for a few days but have been staying on track. Jessica, I have a question – in the toning workout, when you do the chest flys, I feel this mostly in my shoulders, not my chest – am I doing this wrong? I tried adjusting the band up and also down across my back – not sure if i am doing this incorrectly. Thanks! ????

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith September 10, 2015, 10:40 am

      Hi Nancy! So glad you are still with us! To answer your question, it’s hard to tell without being able to see you in person, but you may want to check the band level you are keeping it at in front of your body. You will work the shoulders in addition to the chest, but if you can line up the band with the midline of your chest (vs in line with your shoulders) you should activate the chest more than the shoulders. Hope that helps!

    Day 10 Completed! Feeling so good! I appreciated your reminder in today’s’ workout that it’s not just about looking good in your clothes but being healthy internally. Great Q&A Wednesday…if we all keep sticking with our healthy lifestyle, eventually the good changes that are happening on the inside will show beautifully on the outside. ????
    Thanks Jessica!

    Day 11 30 minutes fat blasting. Started easy and then it become hard and then it was over. My legs were still tired from yesterday and I felt it. I believe I went thru all the workouts at least once now.

    Day 9 is in the books!! One of the things I like about your workouts is that you always demonstrate the various intensity levels. I’m not intimidated because I am unable to do the high intensity; I know that I am still working hard even at a less intense level. As for the healthy back workout, fabulous! I suffered from a severe attack of sciatica in December and have been very conscious of stretching and strengthening my back muscles. Your workout hit the spot! It felt so good.

    Sorry I failed to check in the last few days. Day 6, Ii did your 30 minute Buns & Thighs walk, plus the lovely day 6 stretch!! Day 7, I did the Belly Buns and Thighs from the 5 mile DVD (w/ warmup and cooldown). Today, earlier I did the Power up walk from 15 Minute Fat Blasts and later did the Day 8 15 Minute Calorie Burst (loved it!). I will try to get in the Ab one in before bed. Just so anyone who might read this knows, I encourage off days. My legs and other health issues, give me a lot of pain/problems if I don’t do light cardio AND yoga every single day. I haven’t been posting my yoga because its seperate from the challenge, but just wanted to mention my routine here. This new set/challenge has worked wonderful into my routine and goals. The only one I ended up having trouble with was the band walk because of some neck/shoulder issues, so on the bandwork days, I think I will substitute some of your youtube or other fusiony workouts that use light weights if its ok. This program is so doable so such a blessing. Thankyou!

    Husband is out of town, so sneaking in workouts with work and the kids can be challenging… Woke up early and completed the 15 min cardio (wow, glad for a shower after that one), then was able to do abs and toning walk (for tomorrow) this evening, after kids went to bed. Tomorrow is a super hectic day for me, so I can just worry about knocking out the 15 min back. Piece of low-fat, no-cal cake!

    Hi. I didn’t post yesterday, but I did Mega Walk as planned. Today I’m back on track with the 15-min. cardio + the abs workout this morning. I used my own abs workout (p.t. for my back), though, because I hadn’t done my back p.t. in ages due to illness. I’ll try to do the standing abs some other day when I have extra energy.

    I’ve changed Chair Stretch for How to relieve DOMS, Muscle Stiffness, Soreness – 20-Minute Recovery Day Routine. This is one of my favourite.

    Jessica, I feel tension and pain in my Trapezius muscle, I think it’s after weight. Do you have some exercise particular for these kind of muscles? Or the workout I do already is enough ?

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith September 8, 2015, 10:08 am

      Great work today Nora! You are doing a great job with this challenge so far! Keep up the great work 🙂 As for your question, we do work the trapezius in both strength routines in this program so you might be feeling some tightness due to that, though it’s also an area of the body we typically also tend to tense more often during our day. Hopefully the more you do the routines the stronger that muscle group will become for you, and try to keep stretching it as we do in our stretching routines to help release tension. Hope that helps!

    Day 8 and I’m still going strong. The 15 Min. Calorie Burst + 15 Min. Standing Abs = a great combination! Crunches are difficult for me, the standing abs routine is just right. And how quickly 15 minutes goes by. First, I was surprised when the countdown clock appeared during the calorie burst and, again, when you said we would end the standing abs routine with a stretch, I couldn’t believe I had been working on my abs for 15 minutes. Sparkling a bit, but feeling great. Thanks, Jessica!

    What a lovely stretching routine, Jessica!! I really don’t know, why I’m not doing it more often, feels so good. Those shoulder stretches, when you wrap your arms around are great for my upper back and neck (one of my major trouble zones). Perfect finish for the first week ????????????????????????

      Nice work today Petra! The upper back and neck is one of my tight spots too and that’s my favorite stretch to help relieve it – hope it helps you too 🙂 Keep up the great work and we’ll see you soon for our next session!

    First.. I love all of your videos..I have them all
    I just finished Day 12 with the added back stretch bonus
    I feel great! I do miss doing your yoga dvd since I am following the 30 day plan.
    Where can I fit it in? Are you planning any more yoga DVDs?
    I still love the 21 day plan so I will be mixing it up just a little.
    I am 62 and never felt better…Thank you so much!

Love to hear that 🙂 You can definitely add in other workouts as you see it fit – feel free to add in our yoga sessions anytime you like (perhaps in addition to the chair stretch days?) and you can also add in the 21 day plan as well. Just keep making it work for you! Great job and we’ll see you soon for our next session!

    OK, so I had to rearrange the schedule this week. I did the first three workouts as per the 30 Day Plan, But my active rest day was Friday because I was sick. Yesterday, I did my own really low-key version of the Toning Walk, and today is Chair Stretch Day. I’m planning on the Mega Burn tomorrow, and then I should be back on schedule after that! Yay! Despite my obstacles, I think I’m doing pretty well so far. 🙂

    Today was the toning walk, for me. Nice variety in this one with the band, but I like to keep my HR up and not have to fiddle with getting the band in place, etc. Still liked it and appreciated what you were trying to do, Jessica. There’s not enough good band workouts, honestly and it’s a nice addition in the set. I’m a bit behind schedule since yesterday was a travel day for me, so I’m plugging along, but having fun with the new workouts, too!

    I didn’t know that there was a place to comment about the DVDs and the challenge until your email today!! I am so excited and absolutely LOVING the workouts on the DVD. I have completed days 1 – 3 so far! I think the Strength Interval walk has been my favorite so far. The HIIT walk was wonderful and I plan on doing it often as HIIT is something that I struggle with so I need to work on getting better with it. The Pyramid walk was different and fun. I enjoyed getting to the top and knowing the worst was over. I think my favorite part of all of these walks is that you can progress in all of them. You may start out not being able to complete all of the moves but you can work up to the tough stuff later! 😀 Thank you for the wonderful workouts and challenge. You keep me wanting to move and I can’t wait for the next days workout!! 😀

    DAY 12 . I’m glad I come back to my previous habit to exercise before breakfast. I loved it before and it helped me to build a good relationship with my eating. I started eating less, only when I feel hungry and my body doesn’t complain. No point to complain because i’m in charge here!

    I enjoy 30 min HIIT today. I have to say that this workout is a piece of cake compare to 30 min HIIT it Hard from The Hour glass Shape workout.

    I’ve made a habit to do 20 min Stretch and Relaxation routine after each workout.

      Great job powering through today Tisha! Hope you feel all better soon! And just remember to keep listening to your body – if you are really under the weather don’t feel bad about skipping a day and jumping back in when you feel better. It’s more important to stay healthy 🙂

    Later night at work than I expected, and came home to a sick kid… Needless to say, I didn’t have a chance to complete Day 4 – however, I already set my alarm to knock it our BEFORE the kids wake up tomorrow morning. One positive – I did push myself to rock my sick son to sleep while walking in circles in his room – got my steps in for the day!

Great job finding a new plan of action and not letting this throw you off course – sometimes that is harder than the workouts themselves 🙂 Keep up the great work and we’ll see you in the morning!

    Hey, Jessica: I’m the one who has been whining about being sick while still trying to keep up with the Challenge. Went to dr. today and got some prescriptions and I’m already on the mend. I skipped the Toning Walk today–but I’ll be back tomorrow! I may switch some days around in order to make it work for me, but I feel confident now that I’ll catch up soon. I hope you and everyone else is enjoying the 30-Day set!

    Question for everyone, how many of you use Myfitnesspal? When I log these workouts I’m not really sure what to put them down as. I’ve been putting them in as Aerobics, low impact. I just did day 3 this morning, and will try to do day 4 later. Last night I was going to do the day 3 workout, and went outside to take a short walk on our country road for a little warmup when I ran into a neighbor who walks her dog about 2 miles on up our road. Since I hadn’t talked to her in a long time I ended up going with her, and did a 2.5 mile walk! So then I didn’t have time to do the video! I love walking out here in the country.

    Reply
    • Jessica Smith September 4, 2015, 8:10 pm

      Love that you got in a walk outdoors Christy – that definitely counts too! As for the workouts, I’d say to use the low impact aerobics for the cardio only walks, and then for our strength routines try circuit training 🙂 Hope that helps!

    Well, I never got to stop by and comment yesterday, but I did the third workout in the series yesterday, and completed the 4th day today! I love them. For the first time ever, I look forward to getting up early and exercising. Usually start by 5:30 AM. So, thank you for that! Can’t wait to see the results!

    I do have a question for you! I know in the upcoming weeks I will be traveling and may not have access to my computer or my workouts. I have the downloaded version. Would you suggest if I have to miss the scheduled day’s workout, that I pick-up with that one when I have access again? Or do you have a different suggestion?

    Thanks again for making fitness fun!

    Day 5 mega burn. It was tough. My legs felt it a lot especially after yesterday’s band workout.
    I love all the little agility exercises here. My only negative comment is in this workout we start a lot with right leg. Like when we did out out steps always with the right. O on this note. All planes motion and all direction motion are now in big rave. It would be nice to apply this all planes of motion to walking. I don’t know if it is even possible.

    Is it wrong to enjoy exercising? Just completed Day 4 – who would have thought you could tone while walking? I am really liking your DVDs and look forward to working out with you each day. I started working out with you 8 weeks ago and I haven’t missed a beat. Exercising is actually scheduled into my day — it’s become part of my daily routine. Boy, I never thought I’d say that. I feel good, clothes are fitting better (and a bit looser), and I’m getting lots of people asking if I’ve lost weight (I haven’t, but I have toned and slimmed). Thanks, Jessica!!

    Day 4 done!! This was so much fun! Unfortunately, I still haven’t had the chance to buy the flat resistance bands so I substituted with a sash I have lying around for the warm up and cardio moves and some light dumbbells for the toning. Hopefully I get the chance to go to the mall this weekend so I can finally get my own flat resistance bands 😉 Oh and I did the 2 bonus tracks from the 5 Fat Burning Miles DVD as well. I did this on the first day as well. I figured I should make this a 3x a week thing especially the Strong Feet and Ankles workout since I’m starting to develop heel problems 🙁 It seems to help though so rock on!!

    Day 2 DONE!! Bam!! Jessica has done several walking workouts wth weights, and how they can all be unique, I don’t know. There are only so many moves I can think of when trying to do it on my own. Loved the workout!! Followed it up with the 26 minute DOMS workout on youtube since I haven’t done much lifting in a while. Mostly been doing walking and yoga.

    Whew, Day 2 Strength Interval Walk done. I used 3 pound weights, but I am thinking I might be able to do 5 pound next time. Great workout, thanks Jessica! On to day 3 tomorrow! 🙂

    Day 1 I got in a 30-minute walk after dinner and exceeded my step goal! I hit 6 miles cumulative for the day. Today I had a lot of meetings so I didn’t meet my goal but I stood for most of the meetings. Tomorrow is a new day and I will plan for 30 minutes of active walking.
