I am 26 years old, 158-7 pounds and she has helped me lose 15 pounds. My BMI is 27.1 I was able to catch up and do the entire workout at one time. From my heart monitor I burned 637 calories! I did this workout DVD twice and came out around the 600 calorie count every time. So again, this is an intense workout and if you want a challenge, this is it. Now, if you do it just one or two levels a day, it may not be so tough, but all levels in one day...yea, the 637 will burn.
1) Power Mile
2) Walk Strong
3) Walk & Jog
4) Walk & Kick
The power Mile is between medium and high movements. About halfway into the workout she'll introduce some sculpting, which I think was pretty good for the arms. And it's not just for 1 or 2 minutes. She'll stick it in there for a good while. I'd suggest you use 2 pound weights becuase there's one move she did that was too hard for 5 pound weights. This workout lasts about 20 minutes.
The Walk Strong section introduces excellent sculpting. She'll do this pattern about four times. There is also some lunges and squatting with the weight-lifting. This workout is about 33 minutes. And I think that adds up to two miles.
Walk & Jog was the section where I was getting short of breath. I mean WHOOOO! It's very brisk! You'll jog for 2-minute intervals four times. This includes the regular jog, boosted kicks and leg swings. Ladies you also want to put on a good sports bra for this level. There's a lot of bouncing. This Workout is about 33 minutes as well.
The Walk & Kick level is pretty calm. She'll have you do four intervals of light kickboxing. I haven't seen her do double knee-lifts in the other sections but this one...I hate double-knee lifts! This is about 33 minutes too.
1) Leslie demeanor is VERY calm. And I mean CALM CALM CALM. She has the smile stuck on her face all day, but if you're used to her more current workout DVDs you can tell the difference. It's almost as if she's a different person.
2) Her key in executing between different moves is about 4.8/5. So she won't screw you up or confuse you a lot. But remember, she is talking throughout the exercise. So, that may be difficult for her.
3) The workouts really get the job done. You will sweat and you will feel your heart pounding greatly. When I did this twice, my body ached a lot! And it was somewhat hard to move around the house. So, I'd recommend doing this DVD just once a week if you're going to all of it at one time. And remember, this is almost TWO HOURS worth of stuff. So, make sure you have the time and plenty of water.
4) She's with four other women; all who are a bit older with different both types. I don't like when she's alone. It makes her look too lonely. Plus I tend to observe that when she's with other people, she's happier. I like a more motivated, hyper, and encouraging Leslie.
1) There is no timer or mile bar at the bottom to help you keep progress.
2) The music was really weak. You can't really hear it all that well.
1) You may not feel so connected with the area she's in. The first mile setting was pretty cheesy and it was a bit bright. She's not really in a studio or room, but it looks like she's in some kind of outside hallway or breezeway. Again, if you're used to her more current workouts, this workout will make you feel like you went back in time like into the 90's at least.
2) When you're done with each workout, it will bring you back to the menu each time. So, if you're like me and tend to do the entire workout and just want it to keep going, you'll have to keep that remote nearby.
3) The DVD came with a stretch band and I'm not sure why becuase she had no exercises concentrated for that. If you're looking for a good stretch Resistance band workout, buy her 'Five Really Big Miles'. She has two miles dedicated to that. But on this DVD it encouraged us to boost your strength with it.
Okay, so there you have it. This DVD made me feel like I burned pounds off! If you have any questions just asks. I'm pretty close to Amazon daily anyway. :)
Walk and Kick -for the last year I was avidly doing kickboxing dvds - they are my favourite form of fitness. I particularly love Jeanette Jenkins, Kimberley Spreen, Turbo Jam and the 10 minute Solutions kickboxing workouts. Towards the end of the year, I sustained a severe abdominal wall injury (totally unrelated to exercise) that required surgery and now kickboxing is definitely out. So I have to avoid anything that even vaguely requires rotational movements like cross or hook punches or roundhouse kicks. The kickboxing component of Walk and Kick is pretty gentle and it sure feels good to get back into some of those movements, albeit with major modifications.
At the moment I'm only able to do Leslie's walking dvds as anything else causes major pain. But her routines are effective and do get your heartrate up - I'm sure I'll still be doing Leslie dvds when things improve.
