Here's another great one from the "Queen of Walk"! Even though I'm an experienced walker, this one still made me sweat and the time flies by! All the ladies in the video are over 40 too and they are able to keep up! I especially like that Leslie has a water break built into this routine, which most folks need on a 3 mile walk! My only suggestion would be to keep the studio bright--this one has a black background.

This was an early Christmas present from my sister. I have never used any of the Walk at Home videos before. I didn't expect to even break a sweat, but I did. Leslie is fun and encouraging. You have the option to do 1, 2, or all 3 miles. It's gentle and easy to follow, but you do get your heart rate up. I really enjoyed it.

In 2 weeks I have more energy and a waistline is forming. I walk with the belt and without. I started doing just a mile 2x day and now I'm up to 3 miles a day.I will increase 1 mile every week.(With this cd one can increase to 6 miles a day or more.) I am 57yr and 100 pds over weight. This program is not only for people who has only 10-15pd to loose, but for people like myself.

Who would have believed it! Fourteen weeks ago I joined Weight Watchers at work and lost about 15 pounds and know it would be more if I had incorporated exercise which I really dislike. So it was my fault. I did go up and down my basement stairs during commercials and hop on this mini stepper but that got boring after a while. The most that I did is walk for 15 minutes with a friend at work during warm weather. Well, it being Michigan, I will not go outside if there is the slightest chill in the air. So basically, September through March, I do not venture out unless I have to shovel snow.

I signed up for another WW session this week and knew that if I wanted to reach my weight loss goals I needed to exercise. Talk about dread! So while walking around in SAMS Club saw this and on impulse, purchased it. As the lady rung this up I rolled my eyeballs thinking...why! I'll hate it! I just knew that I would try it, endure it for a while and it will end up being returned or buried in my forgotten DVD drawer.

So I get home and got ready to be disappointed. NOT! Immediately after you push play you are walking in place and she starts adding other elements to you walking in place like side steps, leg lifts, back kicks, then always back to just walking in place. Soon your arms are pumping and you are going quicker, gaining momentum. Add the waist band and you work on the upper body which is a plus. It was so easy to follow! The pace is what get you sweating and heart going but it wasn't overwhelming and you don't feel obligated to follow her perfectly.

I did the whole three miles that first time and LOVED IT! It truly was a miracle! I pushed myself that first time when I shouldn't have and was sweating, puffing air, but still LOVED IT! And Leslie says that you never finish a workout and say you wished you didn't do it. How true! I felt great finishing this one! I think I was more amazed that I couldn't wait to do it again. Next day I did two miles. Next day three. Next day back to work, got home, did three miles and still wanted to do more! I am still geeked about this! I wish I could do it at work during my lunch hour! I rather EXERCISE than eat! I AM JUST SO ASTONISHED that I can actually say...I can't wait to exercise!

I am 43 years old and own a tiny little house. I do not have much room which this routine addresses. I don't mind the waist band but prefer to use my 2 lb dumbells. I like that I do not need to perfectly follow the routine. Leslie stresses that it is the "keep moving" part that is important. Even if you only do 1 mile a day (15 minutes), you are doing so much for your body and health. You will be surprised how quickly the 3 miles goes by (45 minutes). I am always proud of my sweat and after do the whole 3 miles I turn off the DVD, turn on the TV and do another mile on my own.

I like the fact also that she doesn't use perfect models and she isn't perfect. Real people and real friendly and encouraging instructor. I am excited about all these reviews and the positive results people are getting. I order her Ultimate collection on Amazon and can't wait to get it. I am even thinking about going out to buy myself a work out suit and new walking shoes...just unbelievable! So I am really curious on how I will do with this next WW session WITH EXERCISE! I will try to remember to come back and update this review to let you know how I did.

Any age would enjoy this routine! I highly recommend this product!

UPDATE 03/2011: Wow! What a difference. For the first month I exercised almost every day and then after started to alternate days or do it 3-4 times a week. I did purchase more of her advance walking DVDs where you do "Boosted Walking" which is really low impact jogging - for two minutes each mile and found that I want to jog in place longer. I really recommend you get more of her DVDs to change it up from time to time. So here is what I have noticed.

I lost so many inches! At the end of my first WW session I fit into a size 16 pants. Now I fit into a size 12! My butt is toning up because I do extra of the moves that seem to concentrate in that area (leg lifts and back kicks). Lost an additional 11 pounds (for 27 total). I don't have to do as much exercise because my metabolism has been built up to the point that missing a day is good and actually equalizes my body to help it keep losing.

People at work are seeing the difference and joining WW and borrowing this DVD. It is so nice to be an inspiration. Forget the expensive gym. Stay at home!

I am proud to report, that since starting this exercise "Walking at Home" I have not gained at all which is amazing since some weeks I didn't do very well in the eating area. I am single and eat out a lot! But now, my body is processing the food so much more efficiently. I still have 5 weeks left on this WW session and will report back later. In summary...looking soooooo good and feeling it too!

UPDATE 05/01/2012: I met my goal of 40 lbs back in Oct 2011 and have maintained my weight loss. I signed up for WW Online just to keep on track. I slacked off on doing the DVDs but that is going to change. I just found out that the city that I live has been officially named the WORSE place for a single woman to walk NATIONWIDE! So rather than take the big bat and pepper spray, I am just going to get back to Leslie. She is still the best!

UPDATE 05/14/2013: Well, I have been on a forced vacation for a few months now and gained some weight back and have had some problems with my knees. Back to Leslie but I am not using the DVDs. I can now do it without the DVDs because it is so easily done. I add my own devised moves to change it up a bit. My weight is coming down again and I am feeling great.

I love this DVD and workout. After 3 weeks I have lost almost 2" in my hips, 1.5" in my waist and an 1.5" in each thigh. I do it faithfully every morning and feel so good for the rest of the day. The walk-belt is an awesome addition. I must add that I have also cut out junk food on my quest to get fit, and my body is already changing. Try this workout if you are a busy mom like me and cannot get to the gym. I plan to try more of her dvd's. Also note...each mile flies by.

I am not a runner or an aerobic class person. I do not relish the thought of being with a group of people to show them my wiggly bits or to show that I have no rhythm, go left when they say right. This was a great dvd for me...easy to follow...I can keep up and I feel very good after doing the exercise. I know I wouldn't do the 4 or 5 mile walk so after doing this dvd I was glad I didn't get that one. I thought the price was great too--almost bought one from QVC for a heck of a lot more--go Amazon!

My first Leslie walking tape. Health-wise, I am unable to do some exercises, but Leslie just walks. The Walk Belt is just great also!
For bigger girls, belt is only 47" around, I had to sew in extra webbing.
Tape really got me going the very first day.

I started walking years ago with Leslie's first set of videos Walk Away the Pounds. I loved the workout but found in frustrating that no one was sweating and it was obviously edited (even had credits at the end for hair and makeup). Well after falling off the workout wagon for a few years, I decided to get back on and see if Leslie had added to her workout options. HAS SHE EVER! This is a GREAT workout for beginners and experts alike. The DVD format allows you to do one, two, or three miles (so beginners can start with one mile and then go straight to the cool down). And it's not so "perfect." Everyone sweats, they break for towels and water, and some of the girls even mess up from time to time, which makes me feel better when I mess up myself. :-) This is a great way to start the day, break a sweat, and feel you've accomplished something. I highly recommend this!

This was my first dvd of Leslie Sansone, it is a great workout. Very motivating, you can stop at one mile or go all the way to three. The workout band gives your arms something to do, and increases your heartrate for a good overall workout.

I really like the DVD and the belt that comes with it. It really gives you a great workout. I can't finish to the end, but now the DVD workout
will last longer.
