I really love this workout. I have a large collection of Leslie's most recent dvds (I have all but one of the walk at home series) and this is my first WATP purchase.

I liked seeing the younger Lynn, Mary, and Jo. They were so pretty back then and they all still look pretty and healthy now-- check out the latest dvd, "The Big Burn- 2 miles" work out; all three cast members are there. ANd of course, Leslie looks fabulous. I don't know how old she was back then, but I hope I will look svelte like Leslie when I become that age.

I am in my early 20's and I fractured my foot and my knees start to ache for days if I try to do more intense cardio and strength training work outs. I prefer Leslie's work outs with out boosted walking options ( like this dvd) over the ones that do have it. I feel a little bad if I don't do the boosted walking in the other work outs because I feel like I haven't really did a mile. This work out is definitely safe and easy on my knees and fractured foot.

Parts of her miles have faster walking moments like in "Leslie Sansone's 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk" dvd. But unlike the "Fat Burning Walk" dvd, "WATP for ABS" start with a slow and steady warm up and I feel like I could walk more smoothly and effectively. "Leslie's Fast & Firm: 4 Really Big Miles" have a warm up too but it is pretty fast for a warm up, in my opinion, and even Leslie mentioned that the warm up is "a little peppy."

I use 1.5 or 2 lb hand weights because I don't have the walking belt. I think the hand weights do just fine and are a good substitute to the walking belt. The weights make my ab muscles to adjust and stabilize themselves so it helps with tightening up the ab muscles. The work outs do a lot arm movements with the belt while walking so you are forced to use your core automatically. If you don't have the walking belt, make sure to remember to tuck in your tummy because the walking belt is said to do the tummy tucking for you.

I like to do the 3 mile work out twice if I have the time and I always work up a sweat. The 2 mile work out is fun too. I keep forgetting to time the 3 mile work out but I timed the 2-mile workout and it is 28 minutes of warm up and walking with the last 2 minutes of the 30 minute work out used for cool down.

I purchased this DVD because it used the walk belt and I had recently gotten the newer DVD set with the 3 mile workout and the walk belt (http://www.amazon.com/Leslie-Sansone-Waistline-Markers-Included/dp/B000WC38CS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1266249109&sr=8-1) and was looking for additional workouts. This one does not come with the belt however, so make sure you have it if you're just going to order this disc. I'm sure the workout would work without the belt but it wouldn't really work your abs any extra. It has three separate workouts of 1, 2 and 3 miles, each with warm up and cool down, and all use the belt. Good workouts, and using the belt does increase the use of your core. Definitely recommend!

I've enjoyed following Leslie's exercise routines for years now. She's pleasant,motivating and easy to workout with. This DVD is great! If you want a quick pick-me-up or a longer session, this is a great way to work up quite a sweat while being rather low-impact. Thanks Leslie!

This DVD has quickly become one of my favorites. The set is brightly lit, the music is good, and the walkers all have smiles on their faces. They are having a good time! I can feel the benefits of the walk belt. Aside from the arm movements, the belt offers some back support, and I can feel my abs tightening as I raise my arms above my head. Occasionally, I will do the 2 mile walk, then follow it with the 3 mile walk..5 miles is a good workout. The pace is brisk, but you don't wear yourself out..definitely a great addition to your workout library. Try it!

I have been looking for this set of 3 walking routines on DVD format for a while. I own the older VHS version of these 3 workouts and they are still my FAVORITE walking routines. This is the same 3 pack set that was available previously only on VHS. (Walk away the pounds for the Abs/with walking belt). There are three seperate workouts but all on one DVD. There is NO belt with the new DVD though, so keep that in mind. As I mentioned above, These are my FAVORITE walks that Leslie does. I have purchased several of Leslie's other walking DVD's and they are all good too, but I guess this set was my first and still is my old "standby". The only thing I would say negative about it is that the picture is not a clear as the newer DVD's but that really doesn't bother me too much. So happy to have them now in the DVD format!

I had the original 2003 release on VHS tapes. These workouts fit into anyone's schedule (about 15 min per mile) and it's the only program I have ever stuck with. I lent someone my 1 mile video so I just repurchased all 3 workouts on DVD. Started with 1 mile, no belt, then will add belt and then increase miles. You can't beat Leslie. This workout really works. I have several of her other tapes but keep coming back to this one. After having my third child at 41, I find the pounds harder to keep off without exercise. Now that I have this DVD, I'm set for a healthy decade! And the belt works great. I have also used bands in place of the belt and they work well to firm arms. Good result on abs as well.

I guess I would say I love this video. It is the 3rd copy I have purchased. I have used it for years. My cleaning lady lost my first copy after several years of use. I actually wore one out the second copy and I am now using my 3rd. It's worth getting up in the morning for a workout rain or shine.

When I ordered this video it arrived at my doorstep much faster than I expected. Using this video is helping to raise my spirits and lower my weight. Thanks for all the help.

Over 6 years ago I purchased my first Leslie Sansone DVD, Walk Away the Pounds for Abs, and it is still my favorite go to workout when I need to tone up my abs and get my heart pumping. It's true, in as little as 3 weeks you will see a difference in your waistline. I do the two mile workout every morning before work and yes, it gets a little old hearing and seeing the same voices and faces. Still, I make it fun but adding my own comments and changing things up a bit. I tend to use the belt throughout most of the workout. Anyway, if you want to lose weight, get in shape, and feel good about your body, buy this DVD.
