If you are just starting a work out program and aren't ready for something real high energy you might want to check out the Easy Walk. This segment is especially configured for people who don't exercise regularly. This is a fifteen minute walk.
The Fat Blasting Interval Walk is a fifteen minute cardio walk. This is a faster, more high energy walk exercise. This is a metabolism boosting exercise and it is the equivalent of one mile.
The Power Walk and Tone walk is a very intense walk for the people who enjoy power walking. This segment combines walking and body sculpting techniques. This also is a fifteen minute walk.
What is great about this DVD is that everyone can use this DVD and start at their own pace. If you are new to working out you can set your goals to one day complete one of the more advanced walks on the DVD. I have older family members who were able to complete one portion of this work out over the holidays. So if you are a power walker or just getting started this is a nice indoor workout.
This walking program is divided into four sections. You can easily customize the walks so this works for anyone from beginner to advanced. If you want to take it easy and walk for 15 minutes, you can choose Easy Walk and then cool down with the 10-minute Stretch. For a super-energizing walk, play all four sections at once.
1. Easy Walk
Denise Austin has created three 1-mile programs to energize your body and clear the mind. The brisk pace and the addition of weights in the third segment guarantees a fat burning workout. By raising your arms above your head in the first Easy Walk, you increase the intensity.
The first section begins with walking in place. Then you work your way into walking back and forth, side to side and taking side steps. This section puts you on the fast track to lifting, toning and shaping your entire body.
2. Fat Blasting Interval Walk
This is a total body workout because in the second section Denise introduces you to interval training, which makes the walking even more fun.
3. Power Walk and Tone
This is perhaps the most fun I've had walking at home and the addition of weights in the third section makes this an especially effective aerobics routine.
The creative stretching routine with a chair completes the workout and by this time your mood has been brightened and your mind is clear. I felt especially energetic and renewed after this amazingly fun workout. The spacious setting, customizable workout and fun routines makes this one of my favorite walking workouts.

EASY WALK - This is fantastic for those just starting out exercise, or for those who have injuries. At the moment I am using this workout because I have very bad soreness in my lower body and cannot a high impact workout, but I am pleased to say that with a bit of effort on my part (in other words, responding when Denise says, "Pump it out!"), I do get a thin film of sweat over my hands and some parts of my face. Denise uses leg lifts and side steps to keep the workout interesting - it is not just marching in place for 15 minutes - she even does some tweaks to simulate uphill and downhill climbs.
FAT BLASTING INTERVAL WALK - This walk alternates short bursts of intesnity with regular walking segments. She'll have you doing your regular marches, sidesteps, leg lifts, knee lifts and arm movements for a short while, and then she'll add a high(er) impact - burst of intensity.Read more ›
I actually enjoyed this workout. I felt the "burn", and I can do this on a regular basis without getting bored or sick of it, because it's not unpleasant to do. That includes the walks and the stretching. It's very clear and easy to follow, so no frusteration there. This is one of the few workouts I've ever done where I actually felt good DURING the workout, not just after the workout!
Even the most die-hard workout and excersize haters, and even the most inexperienced beginners, can do this and stick with it. I highly recommend trying this to anyone who's failed with other workout videos in the past.

I enjoy her DVD; however, I prefer the ones by Leslie Sansone because she incorporates other parts of the body in her exercise program.Published 7 months ago by SLD
