  • Hi there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Simply do a google search search. On there you will discover an awesome suggestions about how exactly you can lost tons of fat. Why don’t you give it a shot? maybe it will work for you too.

  • So there’s no way around it, I’m gonna have to lose money & throw away my new pants & buy new ones that fit me now. I can’t shed 20 pounds in a week & it wouldn’t be good for me to be underweight again anyway.

  • The cues you give while doing workouts helps me tremendously (especially “tuck in your tummy” reminders). Having all these tips in one place is wonderful! Thank you! <3

  • Thank you. I’m 59 and out of shape but I have a goal of returning to Europe in a yr. Can’t backpack when your out of shape. I will make it and this will help me reach my goal.

  • Went for a hike with my boyfriend and we added a HIIT power walk / jog / recovery element. Those four minutes were so tough but soooo rewarding. Will add different elements every time now. ������

  • I really liked the info about HIIT while walking!
    And for anyone who is considering getting Jessica’s new walking DVDs but you may be thinking why do I need another walking video? What could be different? Well it is different!  I have been a follower of JSTV for a year now, doing all her videos and owning all her videos and this is my favorite so far. I don’t know how she puts together such unique combos, but she does. And it’s worth it alone for the bonus segments for the foot and ankle workout and hips and glutes….and no, she didn’t ask me to write this.:) I am just a very, very thankful fan!!! She changed this 47 year old mom of 6’s life!

  • This is true what she says that you can burn 1000 calories but you have to take into consideration that everyone is different. If you have a few extra lbs or not use to exercising then just walking alone or doing anything is going to get your heart rate up over 70%. Someone with average body fat or lean like myself can’t even burn 300 calories with 30 mins of sprinting lol. The reason for this is the body’s metabolism. The fitter you are the harder you have to work to burn calories.

  • Is Custokebon Secrets helpful to lost lots of weight? I’ve read numerous good stuff about Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google).

  • Girls don’t like skinny boys! Get muscles like me. I got 3kg of lean muscle in one month. The secret is website called NextLevelDiet, because I followed their 30 days meal plan. IM FU**ING STRONG NOW!!!

  • Lucy, I want to get fit and not that easily out of breath anymore. But I don’t want to lose more than 4/5 kg. How can I do this? Often people work out because they want to lose weight but for me it is to get fit and especially for my mental health (get easily stressed out so it helps me relax and feel good)

  • Great tips! Thank you. I love the dvd. Always so glad to see your Mom. My goal is fitness, not calorie burn since I am really good with my weight. Since I am 57 my goals are stamina, strength, flexibility, and balance. Is there a way to walk that would help me reach my goals? Thank you. ��Peanut��

  • I read lots of people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets. But Im uncertain if it is good. Have you ever try this popular lose weight secrets?

  • You should choose your workouts based on what’s fun not based on how many calories you burn..
    Trust me, obsessing over calories is not sustainable or healthy psychologically speaking so just pick up a physical hobby that you can enjoy and stick to

  • When I go walking I have my daughter so pushing a buggy 7km is 10,000 steps but my problem is trying to keep my posture whole pushing a buggy any suggestions

  • I only believe in *Next Level Diet*. They provide you with personalized meal plan, training plan, fitness tips, healthy recipes. Thats everything you need to transform your body and get six pack:D

  • Love power walking. Walk as fast as i can every other day for 1hr (days in between i do body weight exercises) Usually drenched in sweat after first 20mins of fast walking. Walk so fast i mostly have to concentrate on my form and ground ahead so as not to trip/ bump into people. Clears the head. Burns fat. Best of all i get a natural “high” from it, usually around 5-10 mins after finishing. High can last for hours. Everyone who has functioning legs should do this according to their ability. You’ll improve quickly. So natural. Throughout most of our history humans have had to walk long distances regularly. Its only in the modern era that we’ve been able to be sedentary for prolonged periods. Which is very detrimental to health. The benefits of walking and especially fast walking are astonishing both physically and mentally. As opposed to running there’s way less risk of acute/chronic injury and if you walk long enough its as beneficial possibly even more so than running. Not anti running at all, but i suffered knee injuries from it and turned to walking. Never looked back.

  • For me walking is a great way to have a peaceful mind, think about things, and worries, and to feel balanced and happy! Everything else comes along naturally.:)

  • Thanks for this video. I just walked 4 miles in 1 hr and burned 537 cals. I guess not as much as you but I walked and you are right. IT FEELS GOOD!!

  • I walk around my local golf course daily. I do between 5-8 miles a day before my nightshift, I do the arm stretches and leg stretches on my walks. I was getting so fed up with idiot people leaving all their rubbish on the floors around the lively golf course apposite my flat. I’ve dedicated 1 of my walking days to ‘rubbish walks’. I bought myself a litter picker so I’m getting exercise and making my lovely walking area cleaner. It’s disgusting why people decide to throw litter on the floor in such a beautiful area

  • Lucy, I watched this video this morning and then headed out on my walk.  What a difference!  I never realized that I was just briskly walking instead of power walking, and I also never realized that my elbows were flailing out to the side-not a lot, but still not straight back.  In order to get them to move straight back, I had to lift my shoulders and almost squeeze my shoulder blades together = instantly better posture!  Now it’s time for your Sept challenge.  Love love love your workouts!!#Lucyssquad!!

  • Thanks for sharing these tips @jessicasmithtv just starting your sunset barefoot walk as a part of #5mileChallenge. Love You for making my life easier.

  • Definitely a game changer, I walked 22k steps per day during 4 months and lost 10 kg as I also showed on my channel. Epic way to work out. If you wanna see Hong Kong check it out ✌️����

  • Hi Jessica,  Thank you for your Awesome Workouts!  I’m trying to get your 5-Fat Burning Miles DVD but it looks like it does not deliver over to Germany, would there be any other way to purchase it?  Hugs to you and Peanut

  • Mayo clinic: Eat a little less and start to move a little. Start with a 30 minute walk and don’t hurt yourself.

    United States Army drill Sargent: EAT THIS 100,000 CALORIE MEAL THEN RUN ACROSS THE COUNTRY!!!

  • Does Custokebon Secrets really help to lost tons of weight? We have read numerous good things about this popular lose weight method.

  • I think my treadmill is way off… if I run 7.5 mph @ 1% incline for 1 hr it think i burn 300 cals. If I walk 1 hr at 3.7 mph @ 9% incline it think I burn 170 cals. I’m not even that light either.

  • I found the info about bearing extra weights more towards your core rather than your ankles & knees to be really good to know! especially since I’m currently trying to recover from a knee injury.. thanks for the tip! <3

  • I 100,000% do not get a rush from working out and never ever have even when I was in a college class. I feel like poo every time!!!! Wish I did though.

  • What do you think about pre-protein drinks and post-protein drinks? are they a necessity? I’m wondering if taking them will help my build more muscle and tone me up better? Are they worth it, I know they’re pricey!

  • I see a lot of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (just search it on google). But Im not sure if it is good. Have you ever tried this popular diet plan program?
