To film the Arthritis Relief Walking Workout, Healthwise Exercise crew travelled 4,000 miles to shoot in Buchart Gardens, a famously bucolic natural wonderland. The peaceful setting contributes to a feeling of relaxation and well-being, decreasing the viewer’s stress while providing them with a specially targeted workout. The video was shot at 6 am, a “golden hour” of soft light. Despite rain and unusually cold temperatures, the 30 and 60 minute walking workouts featured on the DVD were completed in 32 hours with the aid of small umbrellas attached to cameras.
