This video in particular I love that you can create your own workout based on which miles you want to do that day. I've done all 5 miles a few times, and it is tough! And I really love Leslie as an instructor and motivator. She doesn't feel fake like other instructors sometimes do.
I think whether you're a beginner walker or have done Leslie's workouts in the past, this DVD can benefit you. It's got a lot of options and different intensity levels. Highly recommend!
I loved the fact that the video breaks each mile down individually. The first and fifth mile have only Leslie leading. The second, third, and fourth mile include several other walkers and different music for each mile. I LOVE the music on this video more than any of the other videos. The miles are completed MUCH faster than Leslie's other videos. I also believe this 5 mile workout goes by very quickly!
EACH mile is 12-13 minutes and is roughly broken down as follows:
-Approx. 5 min of moderate walking
-Approx. 5 min of brisk/"power walking"
-2 min of "boosted walking"
The boosted walking is actually gentle jogging and "boosted" forms of kicks and knee lifts. Walkers have the option of joining Leslie with the boosted walking or just power walking. She insists that even if you are unable to do the higher impact version, lower impact is just fine.
There really is no warm-up (even in the first segment), but there is a cool down at the end of the video that lasts 6 minutes. If you do the entire video, the workout will last 68 minutes.
I would recommend this video especially to Leslie Sansone Veteran Walkers, but beginners can easily grow and advance as their fitness improves.
Each mile is a little bit harder and they let you know when you hit each half mile too. Leslie is very motivating and upbeat, and the steps are easy to do. Don't let "easy to do" fool you though. I work out hard and really sweat. The steps are simple to learn, but this is a really good workout. In fact, I really feel that I work out much harder than I do when I walk outside or ride my bike. After 4 weeks I'm up to 4 miles now and it's great. I've lost 7 pounds also!! I'm very happy I got this one.
The music is pretty good, but since I do this 4-5 times a week, I needed some different tunes or I'd lose my mind, a common problem with dvd's at home. Simple solution, put on Pandora and play your favorite dance music. It's a little off beat from the dvd, but you can still follow along easily and honestly, I think I accidentally go faster when I'm listening to my own tunes.
They also do 2 minute power boosts (higher impact but not crazy) at the end of each mile so you can always work out a little harder and push yourself if you want to, or just stay at the low impact steps. I think this is a great dvd to grow with, from beginners to intermediates. Advanced people? I don't know, I would say they would be ok too, but might find it too elementary. 12 minute miles are nothing to sneeze at though, I am very proud of the fact that I've worked myself up to a 4 mile/48 minute aerobic workout.
There are sneak previews on youtube of the first mile, so if you're not familiar with Leslie, you can get a glimpse. That's what I did before buying.
