This is one of my most used Leslie (solo) DVDs. Each mile has a different focus. The list of miles is: classic, arms, legs, tummy, and speed walk. This isn't a substitute for strength training, but the different focus helps give the workout more variety. The legs mile and the speed walk mile seem to be the most intense.
No Frills Leslie

"This is one of Leslie's most basic and versatile workouts yet. For those accustomed to Leslie's DVDs, you should know that this one features Leslie solo in every segment. I rather like seeing Linda and JoAnn and Carol in the other workouts, but Leslie's jokes and chatter really grow old when you've done the same workout umpteen times. This workout is straightforward. Leslie talks all the way through, giving her usual good cues, but there are no jokes and little to no giggling. A welcome relief if you plan to do it often.
Unlike the earlier 5-mile workout, there are no walking aids such as hand weights or stretchy band. The first mile is Leslie's basic walking steps. The second mile focuses on the upper body and arms. The third mile focuses on legs (with some squats). The fourth mile focuses on the abs and waistline. And the fifth mile is a "fast mile" but with only one brief section of "boosted walking," which is optional.
This is also versatile enough both for beginners and advanced walkers and for short or long workouts. Like Leslie's earlier 5-mile workout, each individual mile can be done separately, or they can be done in combinations of 2, 3, 4, or 5 miles. And unlike the earlier 5-mile workout, this one has separate warm up and cool down segments. If you do 1 mile a day (each one is 12-14 minutes) plus the 5-minute warm up and 9-minute cool down and stretch segment, you have 5 different workouts of less than 30 minutes each, one for each day of the week. If you do the warm up, all 5 miles, and the cool down, it takes an hour and 22 minutes.
I usually prefer to walk outside than to walk in front of the TV, but when I'm pressed for time (as is usual during the work week) or the weather's bad, there's just no better or faster low-impact workout than Leslie Sansone's. Fortunately, I have a fairly large library of her workouts, which provides variety. I've been doing them 3-4 times per week for several years now.
This is a very welcome addition to my workout library. It would also be a good place to start if you've never tried one of Leslie's workouts before."

"I've lost 36 pounds with Leslie's dvds and jump at the chance to try anything new that she does. I did all 5 miles of this workout and was very impressed! When done all together, it's her most challenging and versatile workout yet. The first mile is a classic walk; the second focuses on arms; the third, legs, with squats and lunges along with the walking; the fourth, abs, with lots of standing ab work; and the last, a speed walking mile. There is a warm up and a cool down with a nice amount of stretching at the end. There are some new variations to the basic walking steps in this dvd that keep it fresh and fun, and the music is also updated. It's a great dvd for beginners who can do a mile at a time, or for Leslie veterans who can do the entire dvd for a challenge."

"This is the first Leslie Sansone DVD that I've tried, and I love it. Each mile is slightly different, targeting different muscle groups. The first 4 are 14-minute miles and the fifth is a 12-minute mile.
Like other posters have said, this one features Leslie alone.
Since getting this one I'm hooked and I've borrowed several of her other DVDs to try. I like some of the ones with friends, but over the long- haul, could see how they'd get on my nerves more.
I like the pace of this one - not too slow but not too fast for a beginner.
Also, I like the setting for this DVD better than most. Several of her DVDs are against a black curtain and they feel too dark. This one has a great open studio with windows and the outdoors in the background.
The moves are easy to follow, the music is great, the studio is really cheerful and the cueing is excellent - easy to follow."
