What Leslie Sansone DVD's do I Use?

What Leslie Sansone DVD’s do I use?

Recently, I had a Spark Friend (NPDSLEUTH) ask what Leslie Sansone DVD’s do I have and like to use.

So I thought I would write a blog about that today.

The first one I ever bought was a VHS tape titled: “Walk Away the Pounds with Leslie Sansone.”

It was done in 2001 and included two blue inflatable rubber balls that you filled with water. It was a 1 Mile Walk and I still use it from time to time. Yes, I still have the blue balls filled with water and have them close to my work out area.

Another set I purchased from Home Shopping Network ~ QVC . These were part of Leslie’s “Walk Slim” program. They include:
Walk Slim – Fast Start! 1 & 2 Mile Walk. 3 Fast Miles.
Walk Slim – Fast Firming! A Total Body workout to FIRM and SLIM your arms, legs and flatten your tummy!
Walk Slim – 4 Fast Miles!
Walk Slim – Fast & Firm! 4 Really “BIG” Miles!

In January 2011, I purchased a new set of Leslie’s DVD’s from QVC and really love these.
They included soft 2 pound hand weights. And have really helped with firming my arms.
These are from her “Total Body Slimming System.”
Burn Body Fat & Sculpt Your Arms: 1 Mile ~ 2 Mile ~ 3 Mile. For a total of 6 Miles!
It also included; “Power Walk with Friends.” This is my current ‘go to, favorite’ DVD. It’s 30 minutes long, it uses the soft hand weights for part of the work out and it’s FUN! I just finished it before I sat down to write this blog. Love It!!! I do add a pair of 1 Pound Weights that I purchased separately so that sometimes I work out with 3 Pound Hand Weights – like Leslie does in some of these DVD’s.

In December 2010, I got “5 Mile Fat Burning Walk.”
I love this one too. It has a Mile Maker that Let's You Choose:
1 Mile
2 Mile
3 Mile
4 Mile
5 Mile
It too is fast paced and FUN!

I also have “5 Day Slim Down.” A Mile Each Morning.
Day 1: Classic Walk
Day 2: Sculpt Your Arms
Day 3: Slim Your Legs
Day 4: Trim Your Tummy
Day 5: Speed Walk
It also includes a “Super Breakfast Meal Plan to Kick Start Your Metabolism in the Morning.”

A DVD that a purchased recently, but have only started using is: “Walk Slim 5 REALLY BIG MILES.”
Where you choose a 1,2,3,4 or 5 mile INVIGORATING WALK. It includes a Toning Band.

I also enjoy Leslie’s DVD titled” “A Closer 2 Mile Walk.” It’s from her “Walk By Faith Series.”
It’s a very enjoyable way “to complete this connection of mind, body and spirit.”

Two DVD’s that I always have on top of my “Leslie pile” are ones that she produced in cooperation with the American Heart Association. They are “Leslie Sansone START WALKING At Home ~ 1 & 2 Mile Walk. Which is for Beginner/Intermediate. It has One 20 minute Gentle Walk & One 30 Minute Brisk Walk. Love those!!!
The other one is s 3 Mile Fast-Paced Walk that includes a Bonus of 5 Mini Workouts. I use these often to get a good workout that is fast and enjoyable. I always feel so good after I do them!

My younger sister started using Leslie’s DVD’s last winter when she couldn’t run due to an injury. She said that she has never toned up and lost as much from her waist and inner legs as she had when using Leslies’ DVD’s. I know I have thinner thighs at the weight I am right now than I have in the past when I weighed this amount. So I have to give the credit to doing these DVD’s regularly. They also have “excuse-proofed” my reason for not exercising in the winter: “I live in Minnesota and it’s too cold; too icy; etc. to go out and walk.” Not any more. For the past 2 winters I have been a faithful Leslie follower and it has helped me lose weight and now, maintain my weight.

I keep hearing it said that if you find an activity that you enjoy, you will ‘stick with it’. And sticking with it is key for me. I love to walk – outdoors…but when I can’t – I can walk with Leslie!

Have a great week and take a walk if you can!

    Thank you for the information about Leslie's videos. I am brand new to her program so it is very helpful to find out what she offers and what has worked for others.

    I only have two. Thankfully a friend loaned me some of hers so I could see which ones I wanted.

    I have "The Ultimate Collection" which has a 1,2, 3 and 4 mile walk.

    And I have "Five Fat Burning Miles" - this has 5 miles broken down into 1 mile segments so you can do as many or as few as you wish. It has two minutes of boosted walking (jogging) in each mile so you get a 12 minute mile.

    I mix and match these to mix it up so my body doesn't get accustomed to one.

    I love Walk at Home. Have you taken any of her monthly challenges? I just finished the December challenge and the January challenge. I haven't seen one come out yet for February, so I made out my own schedule and am using it for my challenge.

    I would love to use these, but for the bad knees. But, you know trying the new Coach Nicole's Bootcamp DVD- I was able to do 22 mintues of walking in place and really didn't have any problems. So maybe all the walking outside has helped me to be able to do this type of exercise now!!
    Good for you! You really are a Leslie S. Fan! emoticon You sure have come a long way! emoticon

    emoticon I, too, LOVE Leslie! And have many of the same videos! My go to DVD is the Five Mile Fat Burning Walk & I take it out on the road w/me when ever we travel...just in case I don't have access to gym equipment or the weather is bad!

    Keep up the GREAT work Maria! I think of you often & am sending you some Florida sunshine to warm your days til spring arrives! Love you!!!

    Great blog girlfriend! Betty mentioned you answered here. Thanks so much for sharing.

    As you know, you got me hooked on Leslie and I can't thank you enough! I wrote about it some today on our groups' chat.

    that is so interesting about her 2 pound hand weights in the one DVD set. I didn't know she had a set like that. Believe it or not, to make the walks more challenging I began using 2 pound weights about a month ago. Really works great.

    Thanks so much again, girlfriend! xxxxx

    Hi, Maria! Thanks for sharing. I have about 4 of Leslie's DVD's, but when I bought them about two years ago, I only used them for a short while, because my knees hurt too much. But your blog makes me want to try them again. Maybe now that I've lost some weight, and I think my legs are a lot stronger due to the strength exercises, I would be better able to do them.

    I'm in Florida now at my sister's... I think when I go home, I will try again.

    Thankyou for sharing! I love that you and your sister have smaller thighs now with that Leslie's walking, that's encouraging me to get out my dvd of her and start it. emoticon
