Walk Away The Pounds

This Sparked Me!

I discovered Leslie Sansone's "walk away the pounds" dvd's several years ago but just started using them faithfully about 2 years ago. The miles go by fast and it's a great workout! You get a much better workout than outside walking because you use resistance and weights. I love it.

    I love to do her workouts too! She is so upbeat and it does go by quickly. I do those more in the winter and on rainy days. When it is nice, I like to put on my walking shoes and walk outside. I do have some nice hand weights that I got when I bought one of her DVD'd. Like to use those when walking too!

    I love Leslie Sansone also. Newer DVDs are faster paced and more modern. I usually walk away the pounds 2-3 times a week and then supplement with other work outs. I live in Seattle, so I exercise indoors a lot. I have arthritis and a recent surgery and I can still do her routines and get a good workout.
JOYFUL452003 4/11/2013 2:54:00 PM

    I use her dvd's also and I love them. She is a great motivator and encourager.
LIZZIE-BELLE1 4/10/2013 6:31:00 PM

    I need to buy some new ones. I also like Richard Simmons 'Dancing to the Oldies'tapes. The time really goes by quickly with them.
PRAYINGHANDS35 4/10/2013 5:03:00 PM

ALICIAGIRL1 4/10/2013 1:31:00 PM

    I use her video and I love it before u no it 2miles have went by. emoticon
LESLIE2561 4/10/2013 1:13:00 PM

    I feel I can get in a better and faster workout using her DVD's rather than walking the dog because he is constantly stopping to smell things. I sometime do both so that I feel like I really accomplished something.
GRRRMAMA 4/10/2013 12:39:00 PM

    I Lover her tapes, I am up to the 4 mile walk. Love it!!!
RYKA78 4/10/2013 11:47:00 AM

    Her workouts are a nice. They go by quickly too. I especially like the ones with "boosted" walking.
CLARALAW 4/10/2013 11:45:00 AM

    I put in Leslie's DVD and mute the TV, turn on my own music and just watch and follow her. Much of the time my music is faster paced that she is. I figure I have a more intense workout and actually go a little further than she, too. I like that she has several different distance and intensity selections, too.

NEWMEATTITUDE 4/10/2013 11:06:00 AM

    Thanks for the reminder about these videos. I have a bunch of them at home and am looking for a motivation to my exercise right now.
BUTTERFLYCHEEK 4/10/2013 10:14:00 AM

    Sounds like something I should try out.
TINKSTREASURES 4/10/2013 10:01:00 AM

    I have several of her DVDs that I've never used ... but I'm going home this evening and try one of them! Thanks a lot!!!

MARYGOLD5 4/10/2013 9:13:00 AM

    I like to use her walking videos. I have gotten tired of her constant chatter sometimes, but it does help to make the time seem to go by faster. I always get a good workout especially since she uses the weights or bands along with the walking.
SUSAN2068 4/10/2013 9:12:00 AM

    Leslie is great. We often did them over the noon hour at work. They need so little space for a really great workout
GRAMMAOFFIVE 4/10/2013 8:39:00 AM

    I have a couple of her videos and I use to do them. Guess it is time to plug them back in.
HALLS916 4/10/2013 8:22:00 AM

    Thanks! I am going to check these out
LORIVIOLA 4/10/2013 7:53:00 AM

    thanks i've seen it at the library but didnt know how it is. i'll check it out!
SFREDERICK12 4/10/2013 7:49:00 AM

    I have most of her DVD's I simply love working out to her DVD's! She makes you feel like you are right there with her and the group. Most of her workouts are easy enough for beginners. I sometimes struggle to make myself do the but once I do I feel so much better! If you work they work!
XRAYLADY65 4/10/2013 7:37:00 AM

    I love her workouts... I dont feel like I am tripping over my three left feet...
TWILAQ1 4/10/2013 7:06:00 AM

    Leslie's constant chatter and her music drive me nuts, so, after using her videos for quite some time, I switched to putting concert DVDs in and using Leslie's basic moves to MY music. I find this much more enjoyable, and I can see on my Fitbit how many miles I've gone.
LCRUMLEY81 4/10/2013 6:54:00 AM

    walking is my outlet
SUSANM 4/10/2013 6:45:00 AM

    I love her DVDs. When it is nice outside I try to walk outside with my dogs
CECELW 4/10/2013 6:42:00 AM

    I love her work outs too. I have quite a few. I use my weighted vest with some of them for more challenge.
2BFREE2LIVE 7/26/2010 5:50:00 PM

    I HAVE SEVEN OF HER DVD'S AND I WANT TO GET THE 12K DVD. I JUST HAVE TO FIND IT. I HAVE LOST 119 POUNDS AND HAVE USED HER DVDS FROM DAY ONE ON MY PROGRAM AND A DAY DOES NOT GO BY UNTIL I DO ONE OF HER WORKOUTS. I FIND IF I DON'T I GET CRANKY!!!
MVIVANZ 6/8/2010 3:31:00 PM

    I bought one of her DVDs a few months ago and I have been trying to find the motivation to start using it. I am going to start this week.
2RCSATHOME 6/3/2010 8:17:00 PM

    JUST LOVE LOVE HER & HER DVD`S-THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!
KIRSTEN 6/3/2010 8:00:00 PM

    Her DVDs are great, the first time I have ever stuck with any exercise DVDs. They are simple and effective.
ASHIPERS 6/3/2010 5:49:00 PM

    I have one of these videos, and I truly enjoyed this exercise. I think it was a 1 or 2 mile, and it seemed to go by so fast! I would recommend this to someone who needs to work out at home, or has little time to exercise. Children also would enjoy these videos. emoticon
KEL_BEL_FX3 6/3/2010 5:15:00 PM

    I love her DVDs, the time does fly by. I've done them so much now that I do the moves on my own while I watch other things, much as others walk on a treadmill or ride a stationary bike while watching tv.
MOM2ACAT 6/3/2010 5:08:00 PM

    I love her too! They are easy, but not too easy, still challenging.
And great for days I can't get outside to walk!
HEALTHYFIGHTER 6/3/2010 4:45:00 PM

    I use her DVDs also. Love her! I need to buy some new ones!
SPARKLEMAMMY 6/3/2010 4:12:00 PM

    I also use her walking video and yes you don't feel the miles go as they go so fast
