This is actually a good one

"I've never had the discipline to exercise regularly - it's more often for a few months and then I lose motivation. I've bought exercise videos before and all they do is create the illusion that I use them to people who see them on the shelf. This one, however, is getting through. I bought it after "falling off the wagon" when my water aerobics class stopped; it was too cold out to want to walk or go to the gym. But this tape is actually something I don't mind doing. It's short enough that I can look at the clock and feel motivated to do it because I know I'll be done in half an hour. The workout is easy to follow and low-impact and you do work up a sweat. I especially like her attention to ways you can modify steps if you don't have the room or aren't sure how to do them; I think she's really sensitive to the things that usually discourage people. She's upbeat without sounding like a cheerleader and encouraging without being patronizing. The steps are generally easy and it's motivating to have the clock showing your progress now and then. I also like how she says you can do 1 mile, 1 1/2, or 2 - when I don't feel like doing anything, or don't feel I have time, I remember that and just do the first half of the tape. That's the best thing about it - she makes you feel like doing SOME exercise rather than nothing, and that leads to doing more. It's really working for me. Also, all the people in the tape exercising behind her are "regular folks" introduced by the amount of weight they've lost, so that's motivating too. I'm already looking into her other tapes (and I never thought of myself as someone who would do this!)."

"This was the first of five of Leslie's videos I purchased over the last six months. I enjoy this video quite a bit and use it in various combinations with the other videos I've purchased by Leslie. In my opinion, this is the most intensly aerobic video she has made to date. The workout is a two mile "walk" in 25 minutes, filled with a lot of low impact moves such as sidesteps, grapevines, arm movements and other cardio raising moves you can do in four square feet in front of you television. It is cardio focused with toning a low second place. There are two parts of the video that may be hard on delicate knees, so keep that in mind. If you're concerned about knees, you may want to start with her "Over 40" video; a 30 minute/ 2 mile workout that is very good, but less intense - perhaps start with that and move up to this "2 Mile" video. I found I did better when I did that. If you want a lot of toning and cross-training focus I recommend her "In-Home Walking" video, a 20 minute mile with hand weights or "Walk and Firm: Fat Burner" video, a 35 minute, 2 mile walk/cross training video with timed intervals of aerobic and weight training (using hand weights). Of course, a great addition is her "Miracle Mile" video, great for that short, intense burst of cardio (15 minutes) for those days on the run...."
A good way to exercise

"I bought this video, the "40 plus Walk Aerobics Video" and "Firm Up Fast" as a starter course. I found the "2 Mile Walk" and "Firm Up Fast" to be a good pair, for the following reasons. Leslie Sansone is a very engaging person with just the right amount of encouragement to keep me going. In the 2-mile walk, she does a better job of anticipating changes in steps and motion than in 40+, so it's easy to follow. The people in the studio with her are well synchronized, in contrast to the 40+ workout, where the disorganized bouncing and odd facial expressions (details! details!) are enough to throw me off stride. Leslie starts her count on the left foot in the two-mile walk and right foot in 40+, incidentally. As an over-weight, over-60 beginner, I can easily work up a sweat in the lunges, which occur in the first 3/4 mile and are too fast-paced for comfort, but it never gets any harder than that. I haven't noticed any weight loss after the first four weeks, but I haven't been paying much attention to dieting, either. I have noticed my pants fitting looser, however. The testimonials from happy walkers at the start of the video are annoying after the first time, but one can fast forward past them. Firm Up Fast gives easy exercises that still raise a sweat. Bottom line: I'm still motivated to use these two to exercise, and that's the main purpose."
VERY EFFECTIVE, EASY ON THE BODY

"This tape is wonderful for the person wether they are ten pounds over weight or two-hundred pounds over weight. It's easy on the body, no fancy choreography, just very basic steps. You can choose to go half a mile, one mile or the full two miles. You work up to your own level. I've gone from weighing 300 pounds (thirteen months ago) to weighing 159 and still losing. My secret? Consistency with exercise. The exercise you CAN do, is the exercise you WILL do. This tape is "doable" for even with someone like me who was at a virtually non-existent fitness level. Because it was something I COULD do, I stuck with it on a regular basis and saw results."
