The Biggest Loser: Power Walk
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The Biggest Loser Power Walk offers four indoor walking routines, from super-beginner to challenging. Each lasts 16 minutes, and can be combined with others for a longer workout. As the routines become more challenging, small weights and workout balls are added, as well as higher-impact moves like squats and jumping jacks. The set also includes a planner for anyone who would like to train to walk a full marathon, or 26.2 miles. One of the great bonuses of this workout is its ability to encourage the viewer/exerciser to take the moves outside, if desired. The routines are varied and never dull, but easy to follow and to build upon. And as with all of The Biggest Loser shows and workouts, bodies of all shapes and sizes are featured--and inspiring. The Biggest Loser Power Walk presents workout routines that are not fancy, but are inviting, inclusive, and effective--and fun to do again and again. --A.T. Hurley

Walk 1: Bob - The standard basic steps, no sweating. Feels like an easy aerobics session.
Walk 2: Sione - Walk with weights, some upper body workout involved.
Walk 3: Bob - Higher cardio workout with jumping jacks and skater movements.
Walk 4: Tara - Light upper body workout with a medicine ball.
Cooldown: Tara and Sione - Leg and arm stretching.
I tried all 4 walks and the cooldown on my first try, overall I found it quite enjoyable, with low impact for the knees. This is really a beginner DVD, but it is easy to bring it to an intermediate level by adding jumps and crouches with the steps, moving your arms around at the same time, and using heavier weights or even weights you can attach to your legs or wrists. My favourite sessions were Walk 2 and 3, because of the upper body workout, and the high cardio with Bob.
If you do not own a medicine ball you can use a heavier weight instead which you can hold with both hands. If you do not own weights, you can still go through the workouts, as they show how to do the moves without them, but I recommend having a pair to have a much better, useful workout.
I wear a BodyMedia FIT (aka the BodyBugg) and it recorded a total of ~6,500 steps for all 4 walks, and a calorie spend of ~425 calories (if you do the "intermediate" level moves).
Note: This DVD also comes with a few rebates and special offers inside, such as a code to download for free the Biggest Loser Workout Mix Top 40 Hits Vol. 1 (a 1h mp3 compilation to drive you through any workout), a rebate for the Biggest Loser Meal Plan and Know Your Number Health Score subscriptions.
The current season people are in this and several others from earlier seasons. Tara and Simone (from a previous season) do the cool down.
It has a three week program to follow in which by the end of 3 weeks you will have walked a marathon (27 miles). There are four 1 mile walks about 20 minutes long and a 5 minute cool down. Somedays you do 1 mile gradually working up to 2 miles.
If you want to supplement your current workout than I would say purchase it. If you are a beginner to exercise this is the DVD for you.
P.S. Get yourself some hand weights, because you will need them for the second exercise. I will also say, that I get kinda frustrated with Quiones, the guy who leads the second exercise because he is not good at telling you to transition to the next exercise before its time to actually transition. This is not really a huge deal, because I pretty much know the routine by heart now.
