This really works! I have lost weight and inches already! These workouts are easy, but they WORK! I have cut back on junk food, so I am not doing a major life changing diet, yet its still working. I am a clutz and get very tired easy, I have no coordination, but I can do these! :)
There is no jumping around and you need very little room, which is a plus. I find Leslie very easy to follow and I don't feel lost with whats going on like with Richard Simmons tapes.
Leslie travels all over the world promoting fitness and holds six certificates from the American College of Sports Medicine. She also owns Club Fitness and makes appearances on the QVC Home Shopping Channel.
After trying a few of Leslie Sansone's workouts, this has been my favorite workout set. I like the way you can choose between walking 1, 2 or 3 miles. If you start with the 1 mile walk, you know you can do the second and then the third video.
The Three Videos:
Get Up and Get Started - 1 Mile. This video shows you all the basics for a brisk walk. You start slow and work up to a nice pace, then there is a cool-down and stretch.
High Calorie Burn - 2 Miles. You will be so proud of yourself when you make it to the second mile. This workout has a new level of intensity to incinerate those calories. There is a warm-up and cool-down section. This workout helps you create a smaller, tighter waistline, builds strong muscles and bones, intensifies weight loss and works the legs, chest, back and arms. (30 minutes)
Super Fat Burning - 3 Mile. I loved this workout. It took me to new places because after this workout, I really saw some good results in the stomach area. I had to keep looking in the mirror to make sure it was true. This workout firms the upper and lower body, improves coordination and balance and boosts cardio strength. (47 minutes)
Since I'm not the queen of coordination, these workouts are nice and easy although let me tell you, the third video is going to really work you out!Read more ›
But on to the workouts: I LOVE them!
I'm not a coordinated person. My best friend used to do Tae Bo DVDs religiously, and occasionally she could con me into doing them with her. My take on Tae Bo was usually flailing my arms and legs all over and bumping into my friend. (That's dangerous.) But I can do Leslie's workouts! They're really, really easy to follow. Although Leslie sometimes does make mistakes (e.g.: she says "We're going to do knee-lifts!" and then starts doing kickbacks), she's very good about telling you ahead of time which movement you will be doing next, and that helps you to keep up.
It's totally silly, but I do love the people who walk behind Leslie during the workouts. They're all obviously in great shape, and they don't break even the tiniest of sweats, but the whole time they say things like "WHOO! I think I'm going to make it through this second mile!" or "I'm going to put my weights down and conserve energy so I can make it to the end!" It makes you feel better about how well you are doing. But, really, deep inside, you know that they are full of it. I mean, they're not even sweating! So, for me, the workouts are more enjoyable because I keep laughing.
Aside from walking in place, there are four basic movements in each workout: knee-lifts, side-steps, kick-backs, and simple kicks.Read more ›
While this might not be the best choice for someone looking for a super high-energy workout, it is perfect for those who prefer a no frills way to exercise out some stress and calories. Also nice is the fact that her exercise crew represents all body types - while there a few "perfect" figures, there are also those who may look more like you or me.
I like the weighted workout balls; they are easy to hold and provide just the perfect amount of weight to work the muscles of your arms and back without burning you out.
All in all, I will never buy another workout video again, and am getting rid of all the others I own. If a busy stay-at-home mom can finally make the time to exercise daily - and ENJOY it - what other endorsement does it need?!

The workouts are easy and fun, but there isn't a lot of variety, so they can become pretty repetitive. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Sarahlea
