The first mile was very 'blah' to me. There was nothing really challenging about it. When I work with Leslie I usually want to feel that push. But this DVD kind of made me feel like this is for beginners; people who have not worked out with her before. The Second mile gave it just an itty-bitty push. The third mile was when I was really getting a little drained. By She'll have you do lunges, which I don't like. So, I usually do just do squats. But the lunges don't really last through the entire mile. It's just for a small little section; maybe 2 minutes at the most. The Fourth mile has a lot of kicking and knee-lifts. And for the speed walk mile (fifth mile) it was what I was really looking for, for the entire DVD. The cool down was very full and thorough and I believe this was the only full cool down I've seen her do becuase the stretching exercises are not so brief and rushed this time.
1) It does get the job done. I know I said it wasn't what I was looking for, but you will indeed feel like you've done something for the day and gave your body a nice workout.
2) Her key on executing or exchanging between moves is about 4.5/5. She does surprise you rarely, but she was easy to keep up with.
3) The breakfast tips at the end were REALLY helpful. I'm not a big breakfast person but she made me want to eat it from now on. She shows a lot of tips in how to be creative and add flavor to a boring breakfast. She made eggs, oatmeal, french toast, smoothie, etc. Each food had its own section. She'll even tell you how certain foods are good for certain parts of the body.
1) There is no clock or mile meter to let you know what your progress is. Sometimes I felt like the miles were going on forever. But the mile meter only pops up at the beginning and end of the mile. I think each mile is like 15 minutes.
2) She's alone. I know some people prefer it this way, but she seemed so alone in that big gym. I usually like when she's very social and perky with other members. To me when others are there, it just gives that extra flavor and more to look at and observe.
3) The music was a letdown. Sometimes some of them repeated into the next miles and I'm like...'Didn't I just hear that song?'. I am BIG BIG BIG on music becuase with good or new music, it distracts me. It helps me keep the beats strong. But she recycles her music too too much to where it makes me feel like I haven't bought anything new from her other couple of DVDs.
1) There were parts in the DVD that looked like the scene would abruptly cut off due to her having to step out or come back the next day. There was a part toward the end where suddenly they just stuck a new fresh moment in the mile to finish it up. I'ts kind of hard to explain.
2) The gym had no life. She had two windows that were free to glare out at. But I wish she had gotten rid of that huge black curtain and just let life and nature behind her come at us through all the windows.
3) There was also something weird going on with the nearest window close to her on the left. Sometimes I'd look at it and suddenly a house or building is there, but in other shots, there's no house but just trees and a far distant street. It kind of had my attention for a while, but it could have just been the angle of the cameras.
4) Leslie's demeanor is calm in this one. Yes, she talks non-stop but that never bothered me. But she's not as cheerful as she is in other DVDs, especially with other people.
All in all, I could have done without this DVD. If you want to really work your butt off and sweat with a very high heart rate, I'd buy her -

The entire workout is actually uploaded on YouTube. Always make sure to look up previews on YouTube first.
Unlike the earlier 5-mile workout, there are no walking aids such as hand weights or stretchy band. The first mile is Leslie's basic walking steps. The second mile focuses on the upper body and arms. The third mile focuses on legs (with some squats). The fourth mile focuses on the abs and waistline. And the fifth mile is a "fast mile" but with only one brief section of "boosted walking," which is optional.
This is also versatile enough both for beginners and advanced walkers and for short or long workouts. Like Leslie's earlier 5-mile workout, each individual mile can be done separately, or they can be done in combinations of 2, 3, 4, or 5 miles. And unlike the earlier 5-mile workout, this one has separate warm up and cool down segments. If you do 1 mile a day (each one is 12-14 minutes) plus the 5-minute warm up and 9-minute cool down and stretch segment, you have 5 different workouts of less than 30 minutes each, one for each day of the week. If you do the warm up, all 5 miles, and the cool down, it takes an hour and 22 minutes.
I usually prefer to walk outside than to walk in front of the TV, but when I'm pressed for time (as is usual during the work week) or the weather's bad, there's just no better or faster low-impact workout than Leslie Sansone's. Fortunately, I have a fairly large library of her workouts, which provides variety. I've been doing them 3-4 times per week for several years now.
This is a very welcome addition to my workout library. It would also be a good place to start if you've never tried one of Leslie's workouts before.
