They sure do work. I decided to try one from my Cable's On Demand section and I figured, "Eh, how strenuous could this be, it's just walking in place..." Boy oh boy did I end up getting a good workout! :)
Yup, they totally work. I started out with the Walk Away the Pounds DVDs and they were very helpful to me at the start. I had a very poor fitness level and a new baby (followed in quick succession by another new baby!) and they were great for me to build up my stamina and fitness and do at home during nap times. I liked that there wasn't any jumping around and I didn't need much space to do them. Once they started getting too easy for me I moved on to harder DVDs, like TheFIRM and 30 Day Shred, but I would totally recommend them to any beginner to do.
That is the one im doing Leslie Sandsone Walk at Home Video and like i said i love doing them since you bare rely notice that ur doing a workout while doing it..I love it I also started to do circuit workouts so i end up of doing close to 1 hour workout and it feels great hopefully this will help me get to my goal weight..thank everyone for your replies
I love Leslie too. I walk outdoors when I can, but I use Leslie's DVDs for days of bad weather or when I just don't feel like getting dressed to go outside. You don't have to spend hours at a gym to get fit. Do what works for you.

Yes, when I have walked outside I will workout on my Leslie Sanmone "Walk The Fat" DVD.
Yes, I do believe that the walk at home DvD's work great. The first time losing 65 lbs I did it by watching what I ate mainly and then when I had my son 2.5 years ago the diet aspect was not cutting it. I lost the first 50 lbs doing the Leslie Sandsone Walk at Home Videos and sometimes doing the 15 Minute Workouts for Dummies that helped me tone. But now I have hit a plateau at 160 because the LS Videos became too easy at 5 Miles a day 6 days a week and have had to step it up and im trying to incorporate Running, Zumba, and the Jullian Micheals Videos in to bust through this plateau. Good Luck with everything and keep up the good work :)

I walk outside on nice days and inside on rainy or hot days. Our neighborhood is quite hilly and I think walking in the basement and walking outside works some different muscle groups.

Anytime you are moving you are burning calories. When I started my own journey 5 1/2 years ago, I used the Leslie Sansone DVD's and loved it. They helped me advance to walking outside and within a year I was running. I think they are a great tool to get us moving.
My sister has been in spark longer than me I just started using it and following everything i eat or dirnk but my sister told me to do this videos of doing 1,2 and 3 miles in your own home I have done it like 3 times and it does makes me sweat and after im done doing them i feel very energetic so i was wondering do they work or should i walk around the neighborhood. I really like them since my foot has torn tendons and it has been like that for 7 month and as for right now im taking care of it and doing everything the dr tells me but i really dnt want to stop doing exercise to get to my goal weight. so does it work?
