"In this video, Leslie does "circuit training" by alternating walking intervals with intervals of firming exercises using a resistance band (included with the DVD). The workout starts with a 5 minute warmup, then another 5 minutes of higher-speed power walking (using Leslie's typical combination of marching in place, side steps, kicks, knee lifts, and hamstring curls). Then comes a 5 minute segment of lunges and squats--I found this pretty intense since I haven't done these in a while, then 5 minutes of power walking, 5 minutes of upper body exercises using the resistance band (bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, etc), and another 5 minutes of walking ending with a cool down and stretch (a somewhat longer and more complete body stretch than she does in her videos that just use walking). If you want a full-body workout in just 30 minutes, and one that both gets your heart beating and gives you some resistance training, this DVD is a full package!
The bonus one-mile is a moderate paced walk that is available elsewhere. It's a fine mile, nothing special, but hey, it's a bonus."
A dash of bore

"I'm a HUGE fan of Leslie Sansone so I didn't think twice when I purchased this video. I tell ya what ... I was bored stiff! The music was a bit hard to hear, she was alone, the toning moves were right in the middle of the cardio so by the time she got back to the cardio section it was very hard to get back into a fast walk. 2 miles is usually enough of a workout but this wasn't so I moved into the bonus mile ... it was a bunch of senior citizens who couldn't keep to the beat & I had an even harder time hearing the music. The worst part of all ... it cut off before even going into a cool down. It was like it was part of another video & it was just a portion of it. If your a beginner this would probably work but if ya wanna work up a sweat ... I wouldn't recommend this one."
Good Circuit Workout with amusing bonus

"I'm new to the Leslie Sansone workout line, and I have to say that the true test of a video workout is whether you can keep doing it without losing your mind. I've been using the DVD for about a month now, and while there are drawbacks (the bonus workout is preceded by a LOOOOONNNGGG lecture from some doctor; the workout itself cuts off abruptly before getting into the cooldown,; in the main workout the camera work could be better - for example, Sansone sometimes starts a new move while the camera is closeup on her face), I've enjoyed it. I find the main workout with the included firming band to be pretty challenging, and the bonus workout with the seniors (clumsy though some of them may be) is kind of charming and just the length I need on a busy day. Sansone is perky but not excessively so.
To sum up, I will probably buy other DVDs in this line."
"A boosted two-miles" of exercise

"I purchased this video to try and diversify my exercise routine and I am extremely pleased with the video. Doing the walking program didn't completely exhaust me for the rest of the day, but I certainly felt the effects the next day to know that I had gotten a good work out. The two-mile cross training portion of this video is a great, quick way to work the whole body in only 30 minutes. As Leslie says "It is a boosted two-miles". I would definently recommend this product for beginners and intermediates who want to try something new."
