Note - This is a CHRISTIAN walk video. You will be walking to religious music, like Amazing Grace and generic glory, glory, glory. That said, I did not find it offensive in the least, and I am pagan. It is very non-denominational.
It is one of her easier videos, which is great if you are just starting out or have a health condition. I have fibro, and love these videos, they are very easy on the muscles and joints.

"After surviving a heart attack, Leslie is my primary rehab workout therapist. Even medically approved by my own doctors. This is a very special pair of walking/aerobic workouts (low impact) because of the Christian inspiration moderately included, and the wonderful traditional faith music for the background. "Walk the Walk" truly is a full measure of health: body, mind, and spirit. I use several Sansone DVDs for daily exercise, and this is a favorite because of my brush with death, which leads to a stronger appreciated faith.
It's easy enough for a 60+ heart patient, yet enough of a workout that you'll sweat. That's good, that's what they pushed for in cardio-rehab visits too. Leslie's walking/stepping workouts complete the same motions that was initiated in cardio-rehab; only they used expensive treadmills, stepping machines, stationary bikes, and rowing equipment. Here you get the same intensity of workout at the cost of a DVD, and it's done right in your own private living room.
Even better, for me, is the opportunity to exercise with my wife (also 60+). She became a Weight Watcher Lifer, at optimum weight, using Sansone walking and weight techniques and DVDs combined with her diet. We're maintaining weight standards, as well as healthier check-ups with the doctor. The cardiologist is now at 6-month intervals. It pays to walk for health, and doing it with this particular "Christian Inspired" DVD makes it fun and a devotional time at the same time. It's not preachy on the religious or health dialogue. Just inspiring, on both aspects.
We often use the 2-Mile Intermediate workout but also use the 1-Mile by going through it twice just to enjoy the different music for exercising time. It is not Sansone's newest workout DVD but one of the classics in her assortment. A must for the Christian needing exercise health, weight loss, or a way to mix your faith with your healthy body shaping needs.
I get nothing for writing praises of Leslie Sansone walking DVDs reviews. No free DVDs, no cash, nothing...except a longer, healthier life-style. Praise the Lord for that."

"Leslie Sansone's "Walk the Walk" features two in-home walking workouts set to Christian music. The first workout is a one mile workout; the second workout is two miles long.
One Mile Workout
Lasting about twenty minutes, this workout is perfect for beginners, especially those new to Leslie's in-home walking programs. This workout features just Leslie and is slow-paced which is good for beginners but may be a bit too slow for those who are used to Leslie's workouts. (I return to this workout if I've been unable to exercise for awhile and need something to ease my way back in to exercising). The workout features all of Leslie's standard moves: walk in place, side steps, kicks, knee lifts, kick backs, walk forward and back. Leslie explains each move before she does it. One of the things I like about Leslie is that she makes it seem like she is talking directly to you throughout the workout. The Christian music is nice but unobtrusive, never interfering with the workout.
Two Mile Workout
Lasting about 35 minutes, this two mile workout is good for those who have mastered the one mile walk and want to try something a bit more strenuous. Featuring Leslie with two other women, this is one of her easiest two mile workouts. Again it features the usual Leslie moves: walk in place, side steps, kicks, knee lifts, kick backs, walk forward and back and nothing extra like double knee lifts that are featured in some of her other two miles walks. This is a good workout for those who are new to two mile workouts as well as for those who want to do two miles without overexerting themselves. The one major difference in this workout is that during the stretches after the workout a minister friend of Leslie speaks. His speech is inspiring and don't be surprised if you walk around saying "I love you" after doing this workout.
Long-time fans of Leslie may not find these two workouts challenging enough, but they are perfect for those who are new to in-home walking.
