Movie Reviews

Laura Burger | Princeton, NJ | 05/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My mother has used this workout regularly for the past 5-6 years (she's now 78 years old). She likes it because it gives her an overall good workout without discouraging her by being overly strenuous. I often listen from the next room while I'm working, so I can say (and she heartily agrees) that Leslie's words are encouraging, not annoying to hear with repeated use of the workout, as is the background music. I even know an 82-year-old neighbor who'd stopped going to a class for seniors and now works with Leslie."
70 Year Old MIL Lost 7 Pounds
Alyice Edrich | 09/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My mother-in-law has been using this video for about a month now. The first two weeks she was able to lose 7 pounds by exercising every morning and making sure she didn't eat after seven. She belongs to a senior citizen center and raves about this video to everyone she sees--whom she hasn't already told about it.

Update: My MIL is still using this DVD, and has lost seven pounds. She recently had knee surgery and had to stop for about 2 weeks; she was eager to get back to using it as she said she feels a difference in her days and her sleep when she does the exercises in the video on a daily basis."
Good Exercise DVD for Older Adults

""Older Adults Walk and Firm" is a combination of walking and exercising with weights. The walking comes first and has the usual Leslie Sansone walking moves - walking in place, side steps, knee lifts, and kicks. The video is approximately 30 minutes long, has about 8 minutes of warm-ups, 15 minutes of exercising with the weights and about 7 minutes of cool down. All of this is nice and gentle and nothing is too hard to do.

I really enjoy exercising to "Older Adults Walk and Firm". The video is just Leslie, no one else walking and exercising with her. It is a bit slower paced than some of Leslie's other exercise videos, but that's fine because it works perfectly for older adults especially those that have never exercised before. Leslie talks you through the exercises and anything new - like squats and lunges - she introduces slowly. The warm-ups are just the right length. The weight section is very nicely paced. It combines the usual walking exercises (walking in place, walking up and down, side steps, knee lifts and kicks) with exercises such as squats, bicep curls, lifting the weights over your head, and lunges. Leslie guides you through all these exercises and they are done nice and slowly but are still effective. While none of the exercises felt too strenuous while I was doing them, at the end I felt like I got a good workout.

A word of warning - make sure you watch the introduction before you start exercising. In the introduction, Leslie explains how the program works and what kind of weights to use - gloved weights or dumbbells weighing up to two pounds. Also, I love Leslie's exercise programs, but she has a tendency to talk too much and sometimes interrupts the flow of exercising while talking and she gestures a lot which can be confusing.

All in all, I really enjoy "Older Adults Walk and Firm".

Wonderful walking and strength training DVD

"I enjoy this DVD. I have an old walking exercise VHS by Leslie Sansone that I really liked. This DVD is updated and is one on one, which is easy to follow. I love that it uses weights, which is great for strength training. The areobic walking is easy on the knees. I think Leslie is funny and the 30 minutes of exercise goes by quickly."
