Whether the weather is bad, or you just don’t feel like wearing a mask, sometimes, you wanna go for a walk without actually going outside. Unless you have a treadmill, going for a walk inside sounds like doing laps around your dinning table. Luckily, you have another option—indoor walking exercise videos. These workouts make walking in place, an OG aerobics move, actually fun.

Walking is a fantastic cardio workout that is low-impact, while at the same time, can be a heart-racing, high-intensity exercise when done properly,” says Aaptiv master trainer John Thornhill.
