I have been doing Leslie Sansone videos for about 10 years. I have branched out to zumba and other workouts but still put in her 5 mile walk and burn those calories. Love her.

I love them. I did them originally because I have two left feet and I was completely out of shape. Now I do them on "lighter" days or when I don't have time to fit in a full workout.

I love Leslie Sansone videos. I just did one this morning :D. The one I did is newer and is a 30-day plan, basically 30 minutes of cardio with light hand weights (1 to 2 pounds) that you are supposed to do three times a week. A separate workout is toning with heavier weights (I haven't done that part yet) that you do on the other three days. I liked this one a little better even though it's shorter because it reminds me of my old aerobics classes. They have enough variety and intensity to keep it interesting, but it uses all the familiar steps in her videos. I confess to having to do it twice, though, as 30 minutes just isn't enough for me unless I'm running :D. Still, it's a fun workout. My only complaint is that the stretching is included in the 30 minutes. I think this is designed for people who claim they don't have enough time for exercising. That said, I still like it quite a bit. Lots of knee lifts and side-steps and even a little bit of "boosted walking" as she calls it, basically jogging in place.

The other ones I've done are the 4 Fast Miles and the 5-mile one that incorporates hand weights and stretch bands (which I don't typically use). I don't have light hand weights, so if I want to up the intensity, I either jog more in place while she's walking or use two 1 lb. cans of tomatoes :D. I love both of these because I prefer longer workouts. I confess to finding these on YouTube, but I probably will buy them because right now I use my iPad to play them, and I would prefer a bigger screen.

My only complaint about these videos is the music. It sounds very 80s to me, which isn't always a bad thing, but the music could use some updating.

I really like her videos because they are walking steps and not dance-type steps. I always fail miserably when I do any type of dance type workout but hers are super easy for the people with two left feet. emoticon

I love her videos as well and bought some over the years,but unfortunately lent them to others and didn't get them back. However I did get them again from the internet so don't buy them Go online and search Leslie Sansone videos they are all over the web. Of course her brand new ones aren't there yet but, give it time. And they work! Good luck!

For me it's not about getting thin, it's about getting fit and healthy. Getting thin is an added bonus!

I have several of her DVD's and use them regularly. Here are my favorites (in no particular order):

1. Walk at Home -- 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk. I like this one because each of the 5 miles is totally separate, with a beginning and an end. You can choose which single mile to walk or combine them in any combination for a longer walk. Each mile is at a fairly brisk 12-minute per mile pace and they all include the same familiar steps. Miles 1 and 5 are just Leslie. Miles 2, 3, and 4 have a group with her.

2. Walk at Home -- Walk Slim 5 Really Big Miles. Again, this is 5 separate miles that can be done individually or combined. The difference is that each mile is different in terms of the steps and the speed. The first mile is a little slower at 15 minutes, the third mile is 12 minutes. Miles 2 and 4 include a little strength training with a resistance band (included in the package -- but it is latex, so if you are allergic to latex as I am, you should by a non-latex band).

3. Walk at Home -- Burn Body Fat & Sculpt Your Arms. This DVD includes 3 separate routines -- a 19 minute 1 mile walk -- a 34 minute 2 mile walk -- and a 48 minute 3 mile walk. You use light handweights (that you supply yourself) and do some moves to build upper body and core strength as you walk.

4. Walk at Home -- Walk Slim - Fast & Firm! 4 Really Big Miles. This is the one I do when I want a longer workout. I get a little bored with some of Leslie's walks and my mind needs to move on after 2 miles even though my body can go longer now. This one holds my attention for the full 4 miles (58 minutes including a stretching session at the end). Each of the 4 miles is different from the others and even though each mile CAN be done separately, they fit together well into a long routine. This first mile is the slowest (15 minutes), the second is a little faster (12 minutes) and the third is the fastest (10 minutes). The fourth mile is back to 15 minutes and includes the use of a resistence band. It has better music than any other Leslie DVD and that fourth mile gets a little dancelike at the end to be an enjoyable way to start cooling down before stretching. Overall, this DVD is my favorite.

I recommend going to a website such as collagevideo.com that lets you preview DVD's before buying them -- or check them out at your local public library. That way, you can see what you are buying before you invest your money.

Good luck to you!

I like Leslie Sansone: Walk at Home - 5 Day Slim Down - A Mile Each Morning.

The warm up and cool down are separate from the workouts on the dvd. You can choose to do any one of the five workouts or do more than one in any combination if you are you are up for it. It is only Leslie in this one so there isn't as much annoying chatter as I've been bothered by in other dvd's of hers with multiple people. It is easy to follow and requires no extra equipment.

I love all her walk away the pounds videos. Get the easier ones if you are new to exercise or harder ones with more miles if you are in better shape! emoticon

I'm debating on weather to purchase a couple of these or not. Could I get some opinions and feedback if you've used them and which ones would you suggest?

Thanks in advance!
