WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM: WALK RUN

Running For Beginners

Burn fat with this training plan for beginners

Plan designed by Amy Dixon


Haven't run since middle school gym? No sweat. This women's workout plan, designed by fitness guru Amy Dixon, will help you build from a walk to a run. By the end, you'll be able to run 30 minutes without stopping--and you'll be showing off a rock hard body under your running shorts.

Do all walking and running at an intensity level that feels challenging but comfortable. Feel free to switch the rest day, but make sure you do one day of rest each week. And don't forget to stretch after each workout.

The best part? You can print the entire workout plan to take wherever you go.
