A few months ago burglars broke into our house and took my laptop - with Walk the Walk in it - and the DVD player - with the 3 mile walk nestled inside. (We rarely took them out because we used the DVDs almost every day.) I came right back on here and ordered a 4 mile and a replacement copy of... Walk the Walk.
Walk the Walk never fails to put me in a good mood. It makes me happy that I made the time to exercise, and there's the added bonus of connecting me with my spirituality. Love the upbeat versions of my favorite hymns, and I enjoy Leslie's little pep talks. Yes, she talks a lot, but I don't mind because it comes from the heart and makes me smile. Sometimes I've lapsed with the workouts, and every time I do my blood pressure starts creeping up to the hypertensive range. As soon as I get back into the discipline of these workouts - I'm talking about IMMEDIATELY - I get right back down to a healthy blood pressure and heart rate range. Combined with a sensible diet, these workouts tone the body and help me shed excess weight. Leslie, thank you for the work that you do!
It is simple to follow yet intense enough to get a good work out. She does a great job of building you up and cooling you down and not leaving you worn out! This music is a mix of hymns, praise songs and just instrumental. I would recommend this DVD to anyone! Even my mom who has server knee trouble does the one mile walk with easy and it's great! It is NOT a dance program, just a mix of walking in place, kicks, knee lifts and sidesteps, all while working the upper body as well. You won't regret this one! It doesn't require a lot of floor space and can be done in 20 minutes ( One mile) or 32 minutes ( two mile).
It's easy enough for a 60+ heart patient, yet enough of a workout that you'll sweat. That's good, that's what they pushed for in cardio-rehab visits too. Leslie's walking/stepping workouts complete the same motions that was initiated in cardio-rehab; only they used expensive treadmills, stepping machines, stationary bikes, and rowing equipment. Here you get the same intensity of workout at the cost of a DVD, and it's done right in your own private living room.
Even better, for me, is the opportunity to exercise with my wife (also 60+). She became a Weight Watcher Lifer, at optimum weight, using Sansone walking and weight techniques and DVDs combined with her diet. We're maintaining weight standards, as well as healthier check-ups with the doctor. The cardiologist is now at 6-month intervals. It pays to walk for health, and doing it with this particular "Christian Inspired" DVD makes it fun and a devotional time at the same time. It's not preachy on the religious or health dialogue. Just inspiring, on both aspects.
We often use the 2-Mile Intermediate workout but also use the 1-Mile by going through it twice just to enjoy the different music for exercising time. It is not Sansone's newest workout DVD but one of the classics in her assortment.Read more ›

I loved it, good work out for a beginning exercise program; especially for working out at home, take it with you on the road.Published 3 months ago by P4YP
Classic and thorough Leslie Sansone. Always love that her steps are easy to do. Be aware that a significant part of the aerobic effect comes from arm movements done rapidly. Read morePublished 8 months ago by GristMill
