Join trainer Chris Freytag for a rolling hills walk working with inclines in this 30-minute hill-climber workout! This workout provides a 5-minute warm-up and then takes you on a series of speed and incline changes that give you the feeling of hiking both up and down on a mountain. Your speed will vary a little in this workout, but the focus is primarily on raising your incline.
Throughout this rolling hills workout, trainer Chris Freytag continues to check in on your walking form. While walking seems like a task we all know how to do, it’s important that, while taking this walking workout to the next level and adding inclines, we also check into proper body alignment.
- – Shoulders relaxed down
- – Rib cage lifted tall

The varying heart rate and aerobic and anaerobic combination throughout this hills workout will torch calories and fat, taking your fitness to the next level! And let’s not forget that anytime you raise the incline of your treadmill, you target different muscle groups! When you’ve completed this rolling hills workout, your glutes, thighs, and calves are going to give you a run for your money!

Don’t be afraid of what you see above! Each 7- or 5-minute block will have fun surprises thrown at you to keep you motivated and inspired throughout this 30-minute walk. We are going to have some fun working our way up to the top of the mountain and back down during each working block.
This rolling hills workout is meant to be your workout. The inclines Chris calls out will always be a suggestion for you to take if you’re feeling up for it, or you can stick with an option that works best for you at that time.
