Editorial Reviews

A walking, running, fitness trip through nature, Fitness Journeys - Through the Forest is ideal for use with Treadmills, Ellipticals, Stair Steppers and Exercise Bikes. Through the Forest lets you stay in shape and turn exercising into a relaxing journey amidst the peace and quiet of nature. Get fit while enjoying leafy oaks, tall redwoods, Silver birch and pine trees, all accompanied by 3 tracks of forest birdsong. Through the Forest has three different 'journeys' to choose from, with all three carrying you forward through the trees and changing landscapes. Track 1 is a long walk through avenues of trees and tracks 2 and 3 let you jog, run or cycle through different woods and forests. All tracks repeat automatically allowing longer exercise sessions and a Play All function lets you play all 3 in turn.

Track 1 - Forest Walk (approx. 5 mph)
Track 2 - Evening Run (approx. 12 mph)
Track 3 - Redwoods & Oaks (approx. 12 mph). Take a walk under shady trees with "Forest Walk" or a quick jog after work with "Evening Run". Enjoy different forests and woods with leafy Oaks, tall Redwoods, Silver Birch, pines, Beech, firs and lots more.

Customer Reviews

The video production is good.

The Fitness Journeys camera path is always on a road or a wide trail, and I feel like I can take a breath.

Works well in the winter / treadmill months!

I just got finished 'walking through the forest' on my treadmill. I enjoyed it and can see that it would be great for certain purposes.

-If you want to blot out the world and think of nothing.
-If you want to do some serious thinking and don't want anything distracting as you walk/run/cycle/or even use your elliptical machine through the forest.
-This DVD would even be great to run in the background while you are reading or studying and not walking/running/cycling/ellipticalizng (new word), etc.

You can use these if you are an all-out fast-forward runner, prefer moderate walking/cycling or elliptical like me, or some combination.

I found myself getting into the moment. I think I saw a deer, but I'm not sure. I enjoyed being able to 'safely' go for a walk in the country on a very cold day when I wouldn't last out there for 10 minutes.

It was great that most of the time there was nothing and nobody there. I even got a little annoyed when I saw a couple of cars parked on "my" country road.

Gorgeous? If you love beautiful trees. If you are looking for excitement or distraction, this isn't it. If you enjoy the countryside and can't always get there, have a broken leg, sprained ankle, want to take some of the stress out of your life, it's worth a try.

I like it! I won't use it every day because I would get tired of it. I've ordered several more and can't wait to try those in the next few days, especially the one by the ocean beach. I'll come back and review those as soon as I get them. That's one more advantage. I have real motivation to go upstairs to my gym and work out on those machines, so I can try out my new walking paths.

I bought this DVD, along with the Scenic Trex Jungle and Beach Trail walk, and have used both over the last three weeks. This one is much better. It is shot wide-angle, so you can see the sky and see to your side in your "peripheral" vision. The camera is stable, at eye-level to an adult. The speed isn't perfect - 5mph is too slow for treadmill work, 12mph is too fast - but otherwise, it is outstanding. The Scenic Trex walk through the jungle isn't nearly as good, the lens is not wide-angle, the pace is too slow, it's a narrow jungle trail that I find at times to be a little suffocating. The Fitness Journeys camera path is always on a road or a wide trail, and I feel like I can take a breath. It's easy to imagine you are running in the early morning of a sunny day in late spring. Just what I wanted.

It is OK but I wish there longer time between it looping back. There is only a short time for each segment fbefor starting over. Other than that it is good to watch while you walk.

For the price of the DVD I would want more of a selection of scenery. Only choose from 3 different paths or scenery two are almost identical, and the redwood is the only one that varies. I would have liked more of a selection. It does the job, and is relaxing to meditate too (nature sounds birds chirping etc) as well as walking or running to so that's a little bonus, but you have to figure that out for yourself. I wasn't impressed, and It's over priced.

I love this DVD and I walk/run to it everyday. There's only one little detail I wish Tony Helsloot had included in the filming of it and that's to show a bird every now and then. I mean, you hear all these wonderful birds singing but you never actually see ONE. I think that would have made this great exercise DVD sensational! Thanks for it anyway. Good job.

My wife and I use this DVD on the treadmill in our basement. It's nice to have in the winter when we can't get outside. You get to pretend that you are out in the woods on a nice day instead of stuck in the house. going no wear.

I love the beautiful photography; it is a work of art. It makes me feel that I am on a hiking trail.
The disk contains lovely bird sounds that enhance any type of music. You may listen to the nature sounds without any music or you may mute the bird sounds.
Please make more disks like this!!

I use this dvd together with my walks on the treadmill. What a delight to not be bored while walking.
