This is a Gaiam reissue. Reissues are a nice way to "collect" older Leslie videos that were originally issued on VHS.
1. Get Up & Get Started (18 minutes, uses dumbbells)
2. High Calorie Burn (30 minutes, uses dumbbells)
3. 30 Minute Walk (30 minutes)
4. Walk & Kick (30 minutes) - this has some kickboxing type moves.
5. Leslie Sansone Power Mile (20 minutes, uses dumbbells)

Five of her older Walk Away the Pounds workouts. Although I think her newer workouts are better it's nice to revisit the original WATP.

"I just got this DVD and thought it was newer workouts. Unfortunetly, it is a collection of older workouts. I am thrilled that the first two workouts are the 1 and 2 mile from the original WATP. That set is my alltime favorite and I only have them on VHS (which I don't use anymore). The 3rd and the 5th workouts I am not sure which ones they are but the set and clothes look late 80's early 90's, I am less than thrilled with these. And the Walk and Jog I already own. I gave my review 4 stars because I LOVE the first two workouts but overall I am not pleased with this dvd. There is MUCH better Leslie out there!"
Great workout DVD!

"I just recently purchased this DVD and I love it!! This was the first time I have ever done any of Leslie Sansone's workouts and it is great! I am trying to get fit and can actually keep up with this workout. I like it because it has 5 workouts on one DVD which are divided up into 5 days, but sometimes I do two days workouts on one day. Each workout is approximately 20 to 30 minutes. It is a great way to get in shape by walking and being able to do it in your home. I am looking to buy another of her DVD's now."
One of my most used DVD's...

"Alright, I admit it...I used to sneer at Leslie Sansone. I never gave her workouts a chance because I figured they would be too way easy for me. My main source of cardio was step aerobics, a little kickboxing and a little low impact aerobics. For me it was always hard to find low impact aerobic workouts that I truly enjoyed. Then in late 2007 after years of consistent exercise, I was plain burnt out and fell off the wagon.
Fast forward to 2009 where I am trying to get back into exercising after a year and a half layoff. Who do I reach for? LESLIE! I found this DVD at Target in 2008 and thought, why not? Turns out she is exactly the kind of low impact aerobics that I have always looked for. For some silly reason I always thought you just marched in place for 20-30 minutes, which wouldn't have been my cup of tea, I couldn't have been more wrong. Yes... you walk in place, but you also do other moves, side steps, knee lifts, kicks (the 4 main moves in her walking programs, and sometimes you will see other moves like hamstring curls (she calls them kickbacks), double side steps, etc. This is perfect for choreographically challenged me.
This DVD contains 5 of her previously released workouts, 1 Mile Get Up & Get Started, 2 Mile High Calorie Burn, 30 Minute Walk, Walk & Kick, and Power Mile. While I like all the workouts, I find that I use the 2 Mile and 30 Minute Walks the most. I like the 1 Mile and Power Mile for adding on before or after strength training, and Walk & Kick is a great little kickboxing workout for me. Many kickboxing workouts that I have tried have high impact moves, which I don't care for and tend to stay away from, this one is perfect. Maybe a little easy, but who cares.
What can I say, I am a Leslie convert. I honestly wish I would have tried her years ago, I see why she has so many fans. I still struggle with getting back to exercising as consistently as I did a few years ago, but this DVD helps immensely. For those days that I don't feel like doing anything (and there are many), I pick one of these workouts and am glad that I did afterwards. 5 stars all the way."
