But even before the crisis, many people might have been reluctant to walk for exercise thinking “that something I.

These weren’t things I wanted to do, in fact I downright resented that simply walking could make my legs weak and on hot days a short stroll to the corner could make me sweat as if I’d gone for a long jog.

  • When you’re doing a workout for people above 50 and you’re 17 ((: I am too sore to do my normal workout but I loved every second of it (‘:

  • This was such a waste of time! Instead of 20 sec, you could have done 30 sec of exercise and 30 sec of running or walking. Please stop talking too much!

  • Hi Lucy I’m always come this walking exercise course like it so much your steps easy to follow and I feel so energetic after done the workout with you already 1 year with you as my good trainer and my ��‍♀️ most of the time, please keep it up your workout for us always healthier, motivated for all for us, thank you so much Lucy my ��‍♀️✔️❤️��������‍♂️

  • I LOVE your workouts. I do a different one everyday. I’m not looking for a big butt, just one that’s a little firmer. I’ll be joining you on Patreon on the 1st. Thank you for the inspiration!

  • All your workouts are great!! Like how you give them for all the varied needs for health and body shape; great job!!! Blessings!!!

  • Pahlla, How about this process for weight loss shorturl.at/flrGO? The information sure suggests a huge and simpler weight loss…. Will it work? TIA Kay

  • Hi, Pahla. My wife (69) and I (75) are delighted to have found your friendly, encouraging, MODERATE workout videos. They’re just what we need now that we’re all under viral “house arrest,” as it were, and shut off from our usual neighborhood walks. We especially liked this session, with the special contribution from Agatha at about 15:25. Our cat also a pretty gray tabby liked it too.

  • Hi, Pahla! I loved your video with Danna and Robyn! You did great and I hope that many more women will start working out with you☺️
    My new favorite move is the “tap-back bursts”! I especially loved the moves in the last 10 minutes of this video! Fantastic and thanks��

  • I’ll be 64 next month and have been doing walking videos for a number of years, usually 30 minutes. This one didn’t give me a lot of steps, but it definitely worked me out more than the others! I also liked that there was no distracting music. First time here and I just subscribed!

  • Hafa Adai (hello)! ���� ���� Just found your channel. I’m loving the low impact workout����(new subbie��). What are your credentials in fitness? Just curious to know. Have a great day.����

  • Week one of your weight loss program. Such an eye opener and just so helpful ��. The ebook has set me up along with your exercises and podcast. So chuffed many thanks ��

  • Awesome and fun workout! I thought I might get bored of doing the same 5-min sections each day but it’s just the opposite. I have been enjoying them even more! Love your choice of music! I am able to get through the first 15 min with no problem. That’s when I start getting tired but I’m persevering, and I’ve been getting through 20 min and now 25 min! Love the moves in the new section! Thanks again for this workout program that I have been able to stick to and look forward to each day!

  • I’ve noticed lately that your workout comment from me is…
    this is exactly what my body needed!
    Thank you for helping to keep me in my ahhhhhhh zone��
    Have a wonderful day my dear☀️

  • Hellooooooooo darling�� Well that was lovely�� Thank you for my first cardio back to exercising! It was wonderful! Loved the format and the exercises! Alleyoops after 3mths off are challenging�� And I cracked up at the I am talking to you my friend������ Kelly of old totally would have kept on going. But this almost post eczema Kelly has FINALLY learned a thing or two about weight loss and Maintanance �� And this my dear, was a wonderful gift all unto itself��

  • Great moderate workout! You brought back memories for me. Though I was more a Copacabana girl than Daybreak. My parents wouldn’t buy Weeble Wobbles either and the frog is one of my favorite WB cartoons. In fact WB were my all-time fave cartoons on Saturday mornings. And thanks for the talking instead of music. I prefer it that way even though I love my music. Problem is, I don’t ever seem to like the music in any workout video that has it. You keep me company while I work out. Lol. Have a great day!

  • My younger daughter was a competitive gymnast. Sometimes during competitions, if one girl wobbled on beam, the other girls would look away, in order to keep themselves from having wobbles on beam. Today, I totally wobbled when you did during the finisher! ��❤️

  • It’s funny. That first exercise that you attributed to a Barry Manilow song, I was thinking of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” Great workout!

  • Hey Pahla, just to say I love balance workouts and hate cardio �� Still doing all the exercises though, thanks to your cool and fun approach!
    Thank you ��

  • 1. What did you eat for breakfast? I want some. 2. My brother had a Weeble farm with Weeble horses! �� I might see if Mamma still has it…for my grand baby. 3. Michigan J Frog! ���� Love that frog! 4. Thank you for the fun workout. And for the record, CopaCabana is my favorite.

  • That was fantastic! ❤️ Have been working out with you for three months now, and this Power Walk is the extra few minutes of happiness that I’ve been looking for to add to the week! Thank you for all you do! ❤️ from Arizona!

  • I hate exercising but love this…..low impact is perfect and being able to do these standing is great. Also love that lucy isnt preachy. Do a few but the walk and tone is my favourite

  • I just wanna say I’m a 25 year old man and my knees are absolutely wrecked from football and heavy lifting, if I run for 10 mins I’ll limp for the rest of the day so you can imagine I was glad to find your low impact workouts, ive been doing your workouts for cardio for the past few weeks, I absolutely love your energy and my knees have never felt better!!! I just have to say Thank You so much for these awsome full body workouts and keep up the good work ������
    PS. Drinky birds will never get old ��

  • Im a caregiver for my 91 year old mom. Your walk runs are always inspiring food for thought that I do before she wakes up to maintain “fitness” hahaha mental and physical. ����

  • This was a great one! I burned 206 calories with a maximum heart rate of 142. About 2 miles. Inside, because we’re having a monsoon here in Kentucky.

  • Thank you sooo much I have been an avid exercisers and after 2 surgeries it really did me in. The moderate workouts make it possible for me to workout again after 50

  • Just to comment on what you said about music: one of my favorite things about your workouts is NO music! I completely agree with everything you said about it, and I really enjoy your talks.

  • Love this work out. I do it with jogging and high knees. Recommend Abba as motivational music..hehe. Never thought my legs would feel so light whilst jogging..stunned.

  • Love this ❤️ half way through I got a good sweat it doesn’t have to be a long workout to get a good sweat cardio dance it a best way to sweat and get �� up and get the heart beat going ��

  • Oh man! So many mixed emotions while watching this one! It’s been 3.5 months since my last run (injury, surgery, healing) and I’m not allowed to run for another 3 weeks. I have become so weak that just walking is a chore! So I haven’t done NEAR what I should be doing. BUT I know that if I want to ever run again, I gotta get off my booty & keep trying.:P

  • I exchanged alleyoops for ding-dongs thinking, “hope she doesn’t make us do these later��.”
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Paula: We’re doing Ding-dongs
    Me: �� Oh well…

  • WOW… this was AMAZING! Such a super-fun workout. I just love how moderate can make you feel sooo good… and the SWEAT… oh, yeah! This was just the right everything. And your thoughts about allowing things to be what they are/gonna be, and what is enough… wise words for so many corners of life! Thank you so much for the joy and motivation, Pahla! �� Happy Weekend! ��

  • Great workout. The part about toning..my son is forever saying that isn’t even a real term.. cracked me. Thank you for putting things in perspective. You are very grounding and help to think of things logically.

  • This video was great (just like all of them)! I have lost 35 lbs and am buying new clothes, but I am finding it hard to find leggings that stay put! Especially while I’m not jumping or squatting or transitioning to the floor (haha). It’s very frustrating to be pulling those back in place in the middle of my workout. So…the ones you’ve purchased from Amazon do they stay put? Or do you just deal with it? Maybe, Skinny Minnie, you don’t have this problem! If anyone reads this and has a solution I’d appreciate your comments! TIA Thanks, Pahla, for doing these. I’m pretty sure you’ve helped with the info you share if not the exercises.

  • Thank you for this! I love your videos! I just started watching them, but I haven’t actually exercised with you yet. Does that count as a baby step? �� You are super motivating and I feel inspired to really focus on doing something everyday!

  • Omg Pahla I loved this one. You have a lot of the same memories as me. And tonight we are listening to the Barry Manilow “live” album from 1977. It was one of my favorites.

  • When you mentioned “hello my darling” I visualized that scene in Space balls when the alien comes out of that guy’s belly dancing with stick and hat ��

  • So,,, how’s the vacuuming going? I’ve got so many little things that I’d like to do daily. The trick is going to be making them fun!

  • My friend! I’m a few years older than you, but I too am a Fanilow! Went to see him in Vegas, in fact, a couple of years back, and one of the fathers of the family sitting behind me tapped me on the shoulder afterward and told me that they’d had as much fun watching me bliss out as they did watching Barry! 😉 Great, fun, sweaty workout today. Thank you!

  • Thanks Lucy from Canada..I am thankful as grateful to you for making all these workout videos which we can follow along easily and feel confident about ourselves

  • I really enjoyed this chat today. Such a great mindset to approaching new challenges in life. Thank you! Oh and I had a thought. Have you ever tried vacuuming just one room in your house each day? That way it would seem a LITTLE less boring and perhaps a little more manageable. Just a thought:)

  • New to exercise? �� Get STARTED with my FREE 14-day exercise plan specially designed for beginners. It’s fast, fun + effective: http://pahlabfitness.com/get-started/

  • Great workout! I couldn’t get that Warner Brothers frog song out of my head though! Thanks a lot Pahla! ���� I recently heard a montage of novelty songs from the 70’s/80’s that included Disco Duck, The Curly Shuffle, King Tut… it was hilarious! I really hated The Curly Shuffle though because the teenaged boys back in the day all thought The Three Stooges was funny and I never understood why! ��

  • You make exercise fun and easy it could be used by people of any age with phisycal limitations. But I’ll respect your privacy and stay out of your channel since you advertise is for 50plus age women ��

  • I notice that when I do these run at home videos, I run on my tippy toes (so not using my heels) instead of using my entire foot. Is that bad?

  • Did this yesterday when I was looking for something to get me moving but not up to any sort of PUSH, and this was perfect. BUT I can also see I can can make this more of a push for myself easilycontinue the exercises farther into the walking segment, jogging instead of walking, or adding light hand weights. This is such a versatile workout, I know I will be back again and again! I liked the shorter intervals, made it so it did not seem repetitive at all even though we did the circuit 3xs. Thanks, Pahla!

  • This had it all! Fun✔️ Sweat✔️ Laughter✔️ Increased heart rate✔️
    I could relate to so many things! Golly I loved my WeebleWobbles! I could play with those and my Little People for hours!
    Thanks for the great workout and heart smiling memories��

  • Omg when you mentioned not growing up fit and learning to get fit and healthy in your late 30s related to me so much as I’m a product of chefs and always the chubby girl who hated PE. Didn’t get myself fit with walking, swimming and recumbent biking til last year when I had knee surgery at age 37 and took 2 months to relearn to walk and finally got my thick fit groove on. Thank you for being so helpful and inspirational.

    Also will you do a mini stepper workout?

  • OMG sister Ok, I’ll be your testimony IF it really works I’m 60 yrs old and had 6 surgeries on feet (3 per foot) and needless to say not moving for 5 YEARS has put on 40 fat pounds (and I already wanted to lose 10) and I AM going to Greece after NOT seeing family for 40 yrs so I PRAY I can lose whatever I can and tone at same time plus use feet AND balance better (I tend to fall) so trust when I say, I’ll be your real testimony. I just did this one (I did a belly one earlier but heart raced a tad much) but finished on slow motion, LOL this one I could DO! I will look at all your video’s tonight but HAD to share! It’s now January 20 and I leave Aug 28th Goal is to lose at least 30 lbs but hoping 40 and if this really helps me, then lets get the total 50 OFF!

  • Hi Pahla, I was doing that workout when you skip the punch punch kick, i remember been disappointed because is one of my favorite exercises and thought “should I said something” and then I didn’t so it was kind of fun seeing mentioned it today, by the way great workout today

  • Hi Pahla, could you make a real Walking/Jogging workout, please. I mean, not a podcust, but Walking/Jogging with variations of Walking (side steps, kicks, ham string curls etc.)? This would be awesome.

  • Soooo… when we were doing this video today, i looked up Daybreak by Barry Manilow!!! Your exercise routine goes to the beat of the song!!!

  • Loved the pop culture references — so much fun and assures me that I am in the target age group for these workouts! You are awesome!

  • Loved it Pahla, laughed along with you and remember everything you talked about from childhood and I also love me some Barry Manilow as well. Have a great day and thanks for the walk down memory lane.��������������

  • Exactly! It has to be fun! At 50 I enjoy the sport activities I do and they are moderate and every time it’s something different gymnastics, yoga, walking, swimming or whatever I’m up to. Everything is better than just sitting in your car or on the sofa for hours.

  • hey pahla, i’ve been working out with you for 6+ months. i have worked out my entire life and am in excellent shape especially for a 52 year old post menopausal chick. 3 months ago i was diagnosed with breast cancer. i knew i was having surgery and really beefed up my workouts prior to surgery b/c i knew i wouldn’t be able to exercise for a while (not that fitness is stored but it did make me feel better and i think heal faster). i really felt helpless the first few weeks as i could barely move my left arm (where lymph nodes were removed) or even push myself up out of the bed or a chair and was totally exhausted. but here i am 6 weeks post surgery doing this workout. i had to make some modifications due to the arm and breast movement. i put a folded up wash cloth inside my sports bra on my surgery side to keep it still and did not raise my left arm above my head. you have several videos for people with back or knee issues but have you thought about doing some videos for people with arm or shoulder difficulties? i don’t mean PT that is different. really 3-4 videos would be great to ease people back into exercise. thanks for your awesome workouts, can’t wait to be able to fully participate again.

  • Yet another great workout.  Loved the new moves within it, the structure and, surprisingly, I’m really liking goofy jacks that I used to hate and call oofy jacks.  Thank you, as always,  for your creativity.

  • I loved this one & will definitely be doing it again in the future! Also! I am SO intrigued by how you described your taste in music! What kind of rap & rock music do you like?!

  • I don’t know how young you are, but I bet at least 30 years younger than me. Yet YOU my dear, are already so much wiser. I found this video to be VERY profound. I am tempted to say “Where has this talk been all my life?” But I DO know that it has been waiting for ME to be ready to receive it. Yes, this talk was already waiting in the wings so-to-speak, even before YOU knew what your words were going to be. This was so profound, that I am sharing it on the pages I manage, AND on my personal timeline. Thank you for allowing the words to flow through you and out to our ears. Thank you.

  • Great, super sweaty workout, but are we sure those were just 1 minute intervals, because they felt like double at least �� Any way, thanks a lot from another queen of uncoordination! Big hug from Italy

  • Loved this! Light jogged through most, more easing back in but was ready for a jog! Not sure how long I have been a Killer Bee, but I assure you I’ve enjoyed it all! THAT is why I’m here. I’ve done the piano lessons, guitar AND trumpet! Lol! You make exercising awesome. Oh and I have fur babies too! Vacuuming daily had NEVER crossed my mind! �� STILL FOREVER GRATEFUL!

  • I had weeble wobbles as a kid and they were one of my favorite toys. I don’t mind that you don’t play music, I like to hear what you have to say and I always learn something from your workouts. I loved this one, keep them coming.

  • I had fun…I was not in the mood for crazy. But Maybe. Pahla I am only confused ��because you run which is not light at least to me. �� Is the moderation just for some of us or the frequency?

  • Oooo thought of another from the 70’s that made us all feel amazing… and by the way is totally YOU…”Dancing Queen by Abba! �� Love from Arizona ❤️

  • I always love your workouts but you out did yourself with this one! Loved the exercise names, explanations and storiesyou always make me smile!! ❤️❤️❤️

  • I Loved this one! It was such a happy workout, and I was smiling the whole way through. For me, it was Ray Charles Music growing up. My dad loved/loves Ray Charles. We grew up listening to his music. The day I got married, I danced with my dad to “If I Could”. It is a crier. On the day that Ray died, all three of us kids called my dad to see if he was okay when we heard the news. His music had such an important place in our lives. His song, “Ain’t That Love” is my all time favorite. There is no way you can listen to it and not dance.

  • Yup, there’s been so many articles and research as to exercise not leading to significant weight loss. Exercise is so wonderful in so many ways for health and well-being, just not to lose weight. At my gym all these people do frequent, even daily, hot yoga and are convinced that they are doing their bodies good and will lose weight because they are sweating a lot, but I haven’t seen that happen…and they aren’t doing any favors to their nervous system by doing a daily boot camp in 108 degrees heat. Your exercises are fun and incorporate flexibility, strength, and balance…and just enjoying what our bodies can do with fun movements. Here’s an article explaining not to expect exercise to lead to meaningful weight loss:

    https://www.vox.com/2016/4/28/11518804/weight-loss-exercise-myth-burn-calories

    I’m an introvert and normally chatter bothers me, but I love your talking-makes the routine even more fun, like working out with your BFF or a really fun personal trainer.

    Both my husband and I are PE-rejects from elementary and high school. Gym class was traumatic for us. But at 65, we now enjoy keeping fit as long as an instructor doesn’t remind us of those mean PE teachers who ridiculed us-so your accepting, encouraging approach is much appreciated. And keep in mind that some men are watching your videos-not just helpful for women, so maybe you can give a shoutout to the guys as well?

    You mentioned both marching and walking. What’s the difference?

  • I am loving your workouts Pahla, especially the low impact ones. You crack me up always and for some strange reason your humor gets me through when I don’t want to work out. Please never change. Thanks for providing them! You are the best!

  • I love that we can go to YouTube and find motivational people like Lucy. You can tell she cares and is very sincere when she says she wants to help you get in shape! THANK YOU, LUCY!

  • The song from my childhood with nothing but good memories is “Sailing” by Christopher Cross. I want it played at my funeral actually LOL…. love that song!

  • Going to be doing this as from this monday…I’ve really missed it…I’ve been doing my 3min arms,and 7min belly for last three weeks I’ve lost 2inc of my waist…thank you lucy x❤️✅��⭐️

  • FUNNN!!! This is my 3rd workout with you. I am LOSING WEIGHT!! I AM EATING HEALTHIER in MODERATION! Its a struggle but so worth it!!!

  • love, Love, LOVE this workout format: 30 secs walk/jog/run, 30 secs bodyweight exercise. The time just flies by actually, since it’s a no repeater the time ZOOMS by!! More of this format, please or if there are already more of these, is there a playlist or link to ’em? Thank you, much!!!

  • I used this, like another commenter below, for symptom-management. On days when an illness flares up, I feel better when I do a gentle or moderate workout: today I could do moderate. Thank u for this wonderfully moderate workout: perfect length and intensity. I laughed at how hard the Pony was for me today!

  • Hlw beautiful person scrolling down da comments can’t really say my diet was strict I cheated here and there I didn’t add any other workout to this I did only this workout for 3 weeks once a day and I lost 8lbs Lucy is da queen we all need

  • I have been alternating all week with your different walk videos and this is my favorite by far. I can’t wait to put on my bathing suit.

  • Weebles wobble, but they don’t fall down! I never had them either:( LOL. I did love my Little People Camper, though! Thanks for the trip down memory lane and the fun workout!:)

  • Actually, I think your superpower is your attitude and authenticity! Thanks for a great workout, but even more thanks for the nostalgia and chuckles. I laughed out loud with the “hello, my baby” frog stuff. And what you said about just accepting change without judgment (because absolutely everything does change) and a sense and curiosity is actually what mindfulness teachers teach. For those who don’t know what Pahla was talking about with the frog: https://youtu.be/pfnnujU1DUk

  • Awesome workout!! But I can’t help but think every time you say Ding Dongs are next I think of those Hostess foiled covered Ding Dongs ��������

  • I missed day 9 yesterday because of a day trip. It felt great today. Then I did today’s walk one after dinner and it’s pool immersion time. There is so much I like about these workouts. The positivity is starting to sink in. I am finding my way, but these really help

  • Oooo…weeee! The fun, the, sweat, the nostalgia-this had it ALL, Pahla! ��The combo of exercises was just sooo much fun! And I loved your side trips down memory lane. I’m 47, very much a child of the 1970’s & 80’s, so I get all your references! One of the many things I’ve so much appreciated since working out with you the past year or so, is you don’t have music on the vidoes. I love your chatter and all the health info you share between exercises, and with no music I can better concentrate on my form. �� But music references and nostalgia trips, I’m all in for! Happy weekend! ������

  • Hi, Pahla!  I was totally in the mood tonight for a moderate workout like this.  You were talking in the video about women over 50 and weight loss.  I’ve been watching my food intake for three weeks.  I’m using an app (Lose It), and I get to eat more food if I exercise.  So I’ve been doing some kind of workout (like this one or a walk) every day for three weeks.  I’ve noticed that my knees are hurting more than usual, and I have more subtle aches throughout my body.  Nothing serious, but not typical for me.  My question:  Is doing something every single day-even at a moderate level like this-too much?  Do most people need rest days?

  • I’m recovering from chemo (and am not a young pup). Modified a little, this routine is great! It goes quickly enough, and you don’t get bored or overly exhausted. I don’t kick quite so high, but at least I feel like I’m doing something helpful for my body during this period.

  • I’ve said it before thanks for finally getting me to realize that I don’t have to overdo to get results and if I have to think was it enough it really is just what I needed. You are an amazing person. Keep the workouts coming because I’m right here with you and all the Killer B family!!!!

  • Really love the workouts and just purchased a healthy book from you today. Please check if you have received the payment and how it would be shipping out from you? From Cheng (Ms)

  • Ur workouts made my stamina so strong… that I’m literally enjoying ur all workuts… it’s winters in INDIA…and these exercises are giving me warmth, stamina,confidence & life….�� u Lucy�� god bless u…xoxo��������������

  • Thank you, Paul’s. This was perfect for a wet and windy Thursday, when I really didn’t want to do ANYTHING. Now I feel like I have achieved something!

  • This was by far my favorite workout! You ask what songs from childhood we have found memories. My sister, Wendy Willhoite Buttrey and I loved Jeremiah was A Bullfrog and would sing it with enthusiasm! We had others yet that was the one that popped in my head first. The references to the “old time” toys was a blast from the past. I feel like we got to know you better during this workout. Jiggity Joggers were hilarious and a keeper for sure! Thanks for a fun workout!

  • As a musician I am glad that you don’t use music there are actually classes I won’t take at my local gym because of the volume or music choices. The real benefit though is that you don’t have to pay the license fees! I don’t think people understand how expensive they are it would really hamper your ability to make free workouts available to us. Also your talking distracts me from how long I’ve been working, which is great! Weebles came along years after my childhood but I have seen them in the store I definitely fit into your “over 50” age range! Thanks for the great workouts Pahla!

  • Ahhhh Pahla, where do I begin?! First of all, this was a great workout and loads of fun! I smiled a lot and the the trip down memory lane was sweet and refreshing. It reminds us of who we are since we are all a composite of all life experiences, good and bad. Next, cardio is your super power, but communication is your super duper power! Your ability to truly speak to us from the heart, to make your points clear, to be honest, to teach, to enlighten and amuse, while exercising, is unmatched. You always lift me up. Thank you. Ps…. just a thought… if we were Weebles, we would not have to work on balance!!:)

  • Thanks for a fun workout. I bought an exercise bike and did that for the past two days and missed moving everything. I added 3 lb hand weights to this because I haven’t done any toning for two days. Thanks I shared this one.

  • So much fun, thanks Pahla! Love that you talk instead of having music. I’ve just finished my third month of your weight loss series and hearing what you have to say again and again helps to really embed what I’m learning alongside working out.

  • I love this work out and by following a healthy eating plan and doing these workouts I have achieved a 3 stone weight loss in 4 months. My question is does anyone know what the calorie burn is for this workout? This is my favourite and I do this one everyday without fail along with maybe one or two of the shorter workouts ��������

  • This was fun! I love that you have no music, it gives us options. Wow another Barry Manilow fan! I guess we are showing our age a bit.:) Great workout!

  • Oh. My. God. This one was tough Lucy. Sweat is dripping of my head hahaha. Haven’t done a workout in 13 days because of super low energy and other stuff. But had the motivation again today and this one was tough. Not jumping and super high intensity but totally sweating like a pig. How can you stay so beautiful and nog sweaty hair when the workout is over lol?!?! Omg. Feel so ugly now

  • Hi Lucy,
    You made me think about working out and getting healthy. My work demands lot of seating at one place.. straight for 10 to 13 hrs.. and so have a belly fat with excess weight of 10 kgs
    Can you please make a vedio on excercise to do during breaks of work + overall one month plan ( morning excercise)
    .. desperately seeking your help
    Thank You

  • PERFECT as well to like me that is 60 yrs. old gal, I have to drag my husband who suffer gout a lot to do this low impact aside from walking that makes him limp while walking all the time. Thanks Pabha hope to get more low impact exercise❤️

  • Woo-hoo! Just saved this in my Fave Workouts folder. BTW, Pahla, the “letter Ks” remind me of the Russian letter “Ж” (zhe), which sounds like the “J” in “maharaja.”

  • Hi dear, i started lifting hand weights 5, 8s, & 10s is it good for women to lift? I’m in menopause now. I’m exercising everday & trying so hard to reduce my tummy lol menopause belly ��❤

  • You always manage to come up with something different. Thank you. This was fun and effective and I enjoyed listening to your musical memories.

  • I also have knee issues and am starting to have bursitus in my hips also. I am 54 years and very short. I ran for years, but my body just wont let me anymore. Now I take nice vigorous walks in the country and do Pahla’s workouts. I love them and am losing weight and feel great!

  • Hello pahla,

    it might not be the right video to ask this but why do we run or walk barefoot? is it healthier or better by some way?
    to me it felt less stressful to my feet because it always feel good to know where is my body and how it moves. the awareness of my feet movements and how am i standing and walking felt good and i felt more in control..

    is it the reason? and is it good for everyone? and how do i know if its bad for me to run indoor barefoot?

    Thanks!

  • What if our heart and lungs are more capable than our foot bones? How can I get my feet ready for running? I had to walk most of today’s because of some pain in my left foot and arch and top-foot bones ( do you love my scientifically accurate anatomy terminology)

    Thank you for the great mental workout you provide along with physically pushing me!

  • Wow, the ability to be bored, that’s so profound. That’s so true because the one time I remember losing 30 pounds I can literally tell people what I ate because it was the same of my few favorite healthy meals everyday

  • I have so many things to say about this video! First of all, I’m a TOTAL FANILOW too! I was so excited when you mentioned Barry’s name several times. I was singing “Daybreak” at the top of my lungs! I’ve seen him twice in concert, and I really hope he goes on tour again after the pandemic has settled down because I definitely want to see him perform live once more. Your advice about living for today is so spot on too. If you concentrate on your aches and pains and whatever, that’s what you’ll experience all the time. I’ve been honing my skills in this area and am getting pretty good at turning my thoughts around from bad to better. I honestly think it’s a skill you can work on. And finally, your outfit is adorable. “And let it shine, shine, shine. All around the world!” (I’m ending my day on such a happy note. Thank you for that.)

  • Great video, Pahla! I can relate on some many levels with this one. Our goals can be so hard to get to because we make them very high. We struggle because of this and therefore it is important that we bring the bar down so that we can find success. Small victories lead to larger successes. At least that is my take on it. I have learned that I do NOT have to exercise 2 hours a day or no rest days at all. I have learned that I can eat that cupcake or something else that is not so CLEAN and still have results. Thank you for being real with us and showing us that we do not always have to be perfect in every aspect of our journey. Your workouts are also fun and just the right amount of sweat!! <3

  • Hey Pahla, thanks for another great workout �� I LOVE our ‘chats’, will definitely try to enrol my mum 😉 and very good point about the music!! ��

  • An amazing workout!! Even if none of the movements is difficult, you have at the end the feeling that you have worked hard. Aiming for 4 times a week till the end of January. Thanks Lucy!!

  • I loved this one! It surprised me. I definitely struggle with feeling guilty if my workout doesn’t kill me. However, I feel so much better the next day when I do yours. Thanks!

  • Great information as always. In know from personal experience that it’s easy to lose fitness when you don’t keep and increase your game. I was super fit when I was running marathons but injury caused me to stop and then just lack of desire. So I still exercised every day but much lower and gained a bunch of weight.:(. Eating does have everything to do with it!

  • Darling Pahla, you’re the best�� I adore the way you educate us! And you are a huge part of why I have learned to balance my workouts, so thank you❤️ This one for me was more of a… am I still doing that✔️! Started with the morning warm up: delicious! Then this gem! And finished with the balance! Thank you for the wonderful complete workout ����

  • “My friends, your hormones have changed. They are not ‘out of whack,’ they are not ‘going crazy,’ they are not ‘going nuts’ they are doing exactly what they are supposed to be do…” For the win Pahla B! #BodyPositive I love the walking/cardio workouts.

  • I love doing these walking and toning exercises. They are just what I need to keep my body active and my heart healthy after having 3 heart attacks over a period of 14 years. Thank-you for providing such a good variety of workouts to choose from. This one is one of my favorites. Tami from Rockford, Illinois, USA

  • Did this with my sis: she’s a ‘New-B”! She really liked it: she said it made her feel accomplished cuz it is doable and not overly complicated, and, like u said, the 3 rounds let us figure the moves out if needed. We sang through Daybreakers: the hands made us think of “Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)” by Ottawan. Thank u!

  • Good morning!! I’m under 50 but working through rehab for arthritis in my knees and this was a great. I haven’t been able to do any high impact dancing like I used to and was looking for a low impact workout to try. Thank you.

  • Well that caught up with me by the end! Great workout and I’m definitely working towards moderation!! Thanks again Pahla �� �� ��

  • Have you tried the “Toby” app for cleaning? It has helped me a lot having a list to work off of. I also love my dyson v6 complete, I find it quite easy & fun to use. It maneuvers very well around & under furniture so you don’t really have to move anything. I also use grove for cleaning supplies, I find it motivating to get in new supplies to try out. I never thought I could be a good housekeeper, but these three things have helped me alot. Also, I don’t put pressure on my self for each chore to be perfect. I just do what I can do each day.

  • I will give moderation a try. Have done so everyday this week so far. Want to continue during the holiday season and beyond. Thank you Pahla B.!

  • People don’t like can cans? They’re one of my favorites lol. Although, I also enjoy box steps / apple pickers, so maybe I’m just unique haha.

  • Had a long and lousy day so this was just what I needed! Thanks for a great workout and trip down memory lane. We were into all the Grease songs and Love Will Keep us Together was a summer favorite.

  • This one was so true on so many counts!! But damn Pahla could you make a real tough inner thigh work out? All I could do was stare at your legs 😉 Another awesome podcast!!

  • I LOVED This workout. Today it was not so much the content, because there is never a content I don’t thoroughly enjoy. Today was the message. The Fun you put into your videos. I laugh with you all the time. and yes you give me a reason to wake up and smile every single day. Especially on Monday and Thursday when we get new challenges. I enjoyed every single thing about this video. And giving ourselves a reason to be happy and smile instead of looking for reasons to be sad and not achieve the best we can be is what you do the best. Thank you Pahla.

  • The challenge of the work out and the fantastic pace was just what I needed today. I have been feeling a bit stressed lately. I thank you for coming into my home every day and relieving that stress with your positive attitude and fun approach to fitness. I salute you Pahla. Please never stop what you are doing. We all love you.

  • Just done this one for first time but been doing your other workouts for 9 months (dress sizes dropped and toned up…feel and look the best I have ever done)…well done Lucy another one to add to my regular workouts…thank you so much xxxx

  • Dear lady, I think you are a real life saver. I’ve been doing you 7 days challenge and I lost 3 cm on my belly; now I’m doing this workout every day since I quit the challange and it is so astonishing to see how my body is reshaping. I mean, I’ve been in gym, I had a personal trainer helping me but I never had such amazing results in such a short time! Thank you so much!

  • Lucy, I’ve probably done this video 5+ times and I keep coming back to it! I do high knees or jumping jacks instead of walking to up the intensity. I love these longer workouts for late nights when I can’t get to the gym. Thanks!

  • First day doing this walking workout. It looks simple but by the end of the workout, I’m drenched in sweat! Feels good. Also I’m digging standing exercise.. so much better than those lying down. Thanks Lucy!:) Hoping to see results….

  • Hi Pahla! You are right about music-it is personal and we all like what we like! For me it has always been The Beatles (especially Paul), but I go the range from them to Willie to Motown to alternative 80s and 90s and ‘almost’ everything in-between! Thanks for your work-outs!

  • Only the second time working out with you, You don’t jiggle!! I want to be like that!! Thank you for such a delightful and sweaty workout! I look forward to getting fit with you!

  • Had a great workout.perfect for morning start and lived with my childhood dreams which made me laugh and smile throughout the workout.happy mood happy day.

  • Hi Pahla, yesterday I told my friend about your channel, and she tried one of your workouts, saying that it felt good! We are both in our 20s and living in dorms, which means our space is rather limited. I can’t even find enough space to do a plank! So I struggled for a long time trying to find all-standing workouts, and luckily we have you! Plus, low impact means I won’t get complaints from the girls downstairs lol. Thanks ❤

  • I love playing piano. lol
    Self-taught, too and play by memory, so I kind of understood what you were saying there!

    Great workout! I’ve been watching a LOT of the walking videos lately and managed to actually finish the 1hr waking vid.

    Boy, was I SWEATY!!! (well it was hot in the house and all of my windows were open, but SWEATY regardless!)

    XD

  • Great fun workout. I enjoyed very much and love what you are wearing, also remembered all that you were saying. Sorry for the loss of your aunt.

  • I love uuuuuuuuu! I hated cardio exercises cuz they always wore me out but ur workouts r simply amazing… i dun feel tired in fact i feel energized… this one is going to be my fav one n i’m gonna do it everyday…. you are truly amazing ������

  • Pahla, mission accomplished this workout was so much FUN! Loved the sequence of moves & your commentary had me laughing throughout (which is also good for abs, right? ;P) I’m in my 30s and your channel is already my favorite for workouts, but this particular one is definitely going in my Workout Faves playlist! Thank you for what you do & the joy you bring to every video!:)

  • I LOVE and HATE the slight level of discomfort that I feel when I challenge myself. Thanks for reminding us that we will get the results we want based on what our goals are and our effort level.

  • I love you Pahla! I use the tv so rarely do I comment but I want you to know that you have made a huge difference in my life. I workout with you at least 6 days a week and I love it. I am a Patreon supporter so I hope you feel the love! ❤️❤️ You are my workout guru!

  • I just found your channel can’t go walking today so thought I’d try find a walking video thankful I found your videos it’s so simple and natural just walking not jumping up and down like another video I saw really appreciate it especially at a time like this

  • I’m currently doing the Hot 100 but when I saw this pop up I had to do it. I’m glad I did. It was Goldilocks of workouts. I really enjoyed the finisher! I really need to work on my balance ��

  • Loved this! And I swear we totally watched and listened to the exact same things in our childhood! �� Thank you for an amazing workout! Love from Arizona! ❤️

  • I was in the mood for a walk and got so much more with this workout!   And I really enjoy the balance moves, although some days are better than others with that.:)

  • Yet another great workout with some welcome new exercises. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when you’re thinking them up I bet it’s hilarious to watch. Thank you.

  • This was amazing, I’m almost 68 and love working out. I like that I don’t have to be on the floor and still get all the benefits. I can’t believe you have been doing this for 25 years because you look like you are 25. I’m going to go through all your video’s and see what will work best for me, especially the clean eating….Thanks again.

  • Love this one!! The energy I needed for the day! And I liked to hear your explanation of why no music. One of the reasons I love your workouts is exactly because there is no music!!! ��

  • Your childhood memories and all you were talking about made me laugh; it made an already fun workout funner. It sounds like you had a wonderful childhood.

  • Hi Lucy ❤️ I just finished my workout routine this walking exercise routine ❤️�� love it so much, actually I did it 5 days plus pear shape exercise on the floor and standing abs 4 minutes routine I’m 52 years anyway your exercise keep me moving wonderful ❤️ Lucy ������❤️

  • I am tiered from my yeaterday workout. This is perfect for me today. Only working out with you for 6 weeks, question, is it better to do this bare foot, I wear shoes, to keep my kneys. Love to work oot with you…all the way here, near Tel Aviv Israel.
