VIDEO: How to pump up your walk with intervals

Want to take your walking workout to the next level? Try adding intervals -- alternating a fast pace with a moderate or slower pace. HIIT (pronounced “hit”) stands for High Intensity Interval Training. It’s a way to do an effective, challenging workout in less time than you would typically do a traditional session of steady-paced moderate or low intensity exercise. This helps increase your fitness level, endurance, speed and powers up your metabolism so you're burning more calories.

See this short video for four easy ways to power up your walking workout with intervals!
