IT'S A BIG CALORIE BURNING WALK CONCERT OF ALL-TIME FAVORITE SONGS RIGHT IN YOUR HOME!
We've all heard it before. The most effective workout plan is the one you actually DO! But with all of the demands in everyone's busy life, it's not so easy to find the time and energy to exercise. Motivation is key, and music is one of the best motivators. Great music makes your workout more fun and keeps you exercising because you LOOK FORWARD to it. That's why Leslie created WALK TO THE HITS.
Walk To The Hits features hit music and High Intensity Interval Training (aka HIIT)-it's the perfect combination! Hit music pumps up your pace, and HIIT training alternates between short bursts of all out effort and longer periods of recovery, allowing you to walk a shorter session while blasting away as many calories as you would in a longer one. A study published in The Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness showed that women who completed a 12 week HIIT program lost more weight than a group who performed longer sessions of moderate intensity cardio. The HIIT group also LOST MORE BELLY FAT. In short, walking to the hits using HIIT training is a sure-fire way to fire-up your walk!
For this program, Leslie chose her all-time favorite, high-energy songs and combined them with her favorite Walk At Home moves to make one of the most motivating and enjoyable 3 mile walks she s ever created!
The miles will fly by as you step, tap, kick and twist to these oldies but goodies that are sure to be some of your all-time favorite tunes too. So come on and sing along as you get your HIIT Walk on!

Leslie is in a room with a lot of people to where you can barely see Carrie in the back left corner. But there are only about four new faces consisting of twins on the left, and two other new women on the right. There's really no difference in people from her last DVD she released (Tone Every Zone Walk). She introduces everyone when she normally does way at the end.
Of course you have your warm-up, and then a song called Temptations comes on. There is bouncing with an arm swing, kind of like the old sixties style dance. And that was the tone I felt in this DVD, that she was trying to get us in the old fashion style of music. Yes, it's fun.
The HIT interval is different. Unlike in her other Walk To the Hits, the HIT is only of one interval. But it feels like it lasts about 2 to 3 minutes. All you do is jog up four and jog in place for four and then job back for four. In between that, she'll have you do heels as a small recovery, and then the jogging starts back up again. There's only ONE HIT interval in Miles 1 and 2.
This Mile is indeed the hardest. It had my heart rate up really high then I was actually comfortable with, and my calves were burning. I did feel some midsection burning as well. She does A LOT of bouncing and twisting in this one. There's a stand-and-squat move. A sit-and-kick move as well. One thing I did like was when everybody did the freestyle twists, the people actually moved to a different spot, which was cool becuase I always have my favorites such as Marvin, Nick, and Carrie. It just gave us the chance to see some people better. I think for each mile she'll introduce one oldies song. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong becuase I hardly recognized anything.
This mile was a little more pleasant, but will still have you moving about quickly. She'll have you do some mambo moves, a squat and twist move and some more bouncing. Some of her moves remind me of her Belly Blasting Walk DVD, which is REALLY good for your abs.
The Cool down was a little rushed, but that's to be expected. I burned about 434 calories through the whole thing. I REALLY enjoyed this workout. The Music was not terrible at all, and it was nicely leveled with her voice. She does get off step a little. There is no time clock. Again, this one was higher intensity. So, if you have bad knees, Just be low impact becuase it's a lot of bouncing and SOME squatting.
THANK YOU LESLIE!!
Leslie says that 2,000 steps equals I mile and each time I do this dvd I average 6,300 steps and 370 calories. A great workout indeed. I am 54 and when I was in my 30s did regular full on aerobic dvds. I then had some issues with my knees. Nothing serious but physical therapy was necessary and the regular aerobic dvds just put too much emphasis and weight on the knees. I was so grateful to discover Leslie. I can do all her workouts and get excellent full body action and an excellent burn without burdening my knees. I am forever thankful to her and all her fellow walkers. They are like family. It's a pleasure knowing when I put in the dvd that Leslie, Nick and all the others will be there. I highly recommend this dvd and just want to remind you it is for the advanced walker.

Leslie had her traditional walking moves; along with kickbacks, mambo combos, and lots of heel digs. She also had some new moves like backstrokes, squat & kick, squat & reach, squat & twist, and twisting.
The twisting could be hard on the knees so I personally would suggest just walking or jogging in place to keep it low impact.
She also does some HIIT training intervals which involved jogging up and back, and bouncing in place. Again, if you have knee problems, I would suggest jogging instead of bouncing. There are no jumping jacks in this one like some of her other HIIT interval dvds.
Leslie had a lot of cast members for this workout, including some regulars-Nick, Marvin and Carrie.
The music was fun and upbeat using classic hit songs-nothing modern.
Family friendly with no bad language in the songs or immodest clothes.
I would consider this dvd more moderate, but a beginner could certainly do it and just modify some of the twisting and bouncing movements.
Overall, I really enjoyed this dvd! The cast, music and new movements were a lot of fun. I have been using Leslie Sansone dvds for almost 4 years now and truly enjoy them. My heart rate typically stays in the 120s and 130s which is great for FAT BURN!
I post reviews on my healthy and fitness blog (www.EmpowerMoms.net) and love to try new fitness dvds. I purchased this dvd-all opinions are my own.
