She does it again...

"If you have been walking with Leslie for a while you know that each new workout she comes out with is just as great as the one before. If you have done Leslie before and have been slacking and need something fresh to remotivate you (that is me)this one is a great motivator. If you are new to Leslie what are you waiting for?
I got this one in the mail yesterday and did 2 of the five miles last night. This morning I got up and did 3 of the 5 miles. This is a great one! Here is the breakdown. There are 5- 1 mile walks, each walk is 12 minutes. The first mile is just Leslie. Miles 2,3, and 4 have various walkers with her. The final mile is Leslie alone again. Each mile is 12 minutes and she does her boosted walking at the end, before the cool down. I personally LOVE the boosted walking! In the intro She suggests doing 1 mile before every meal. I just may have to try that! There is also a wonderful interview with one of her walkers at the end. It personally inspired me because she talks about her dad getting sick and that being her wake up call. I was recently diagnosed with type II diabetes. My father is a very uncontrolled (stubborn)diabetic who has lost one leg already and had a stroke. I am on a mission to NOT be my dad and hearing Nicole's story was just the inspiration I needed to remind myself that I can be the healthiest diabetic I can possibly be. I plan to revisit her story whenever I need some insiration to just walk, walk, walk."
EVERYONE NEEDS TO TRY THIS!!!

"I now have 11 of Leslie Sansone's videos and I love every one of them. She often states that her workouts are not for sissies and that is very true but REALLY anyone can do them. You just set your own pace.I started working out with Leslie's videos on April 1st, 2008. I weighed 240 lbs. It is now February 24th, 2009 and I am happy...no thrilled to tell you that I have walked away 83 lbs!!! I went from 2X to size 12. My goal is to lose 100 lbs and I know I will get there. When I started out I could barely get to the end of the 3 mile video. I'm up to 5 miles now and I love it! I'm hooked! What a great thing to be addicted to...excerize!!! Now here's the best part....I'm 62..I'll be 63 in just a few days and the young girls who work out with me can't keep up!!! Please do yourself a huge favor and get started walking away the pounds today. Or just do it to be healthier. Either way, you come out a winner!!!"
Somewhat disappointed in this DVD

"I have been "walking with Leslie" for about 8 years now and have several of her videos/dvd's. Although this is one of my favorites because of the shorter time it takes to walk 5 Miles and the higher calorie burn, I can't help but be disappointed with the format somewhat. Like I said, the positives are that doing 5 Miles in about 60 minutes is great, and the calorie burn is very high for me. That I really like!! What disappoints me is a couple of things. The first and foremost is the incessant chatter. I wished she'd given the option of hearing the music only like on her more recent 4 Mile Walk DVD. I have remedied that somewhat by muting her, and instead listening to my PraiseWalk/PraiseWorkout CD's. The CD's last about the same amount as the walk and has a warm-up and cool down section. You can only listen to her repetiveness so much and then it starts to grate on my nerves way too early in the morning! The second thing is that it's obvious that the miles are not done continuously as in one workout. So with each "new mile" that is started, she starts out slower and then picks up speed. That interrupts the flow if you intend on doing more than 1 Mile at a time. Since each mile is ended with the 2 minute Boosted Walking, I have to make an extra effort to keep at that pace in order to keep my heart rate up. I'm doing the entire 5 miles because then I know my workout is done for the day if I want it to be. I love Leslie but I think she could have formatted this to be better than it is. But even my disappointment is not enough to stop me from walking with her! I'll get used to the things I don't like about it and keep at it!"
Same Leslie--which is a great thing

"Let it be known I am a huge Leslie Sansone fan, so my bias will surely be showing. I own a dozen of her workouts and put this one toward the top of the pile. The best part is that the DVD allows you to pick how many miles you want to do and you don't have complicated navigation to do it. Her script remains relatively the same as most of her workouts, but it's still enjoyable, the music is great and Leslie is as motivating as ever. You can squeeze in a 5 mile walk in an hour--not too shabby. I enjoy the boost at the end of each mile. I miss using hand weights, belt and stretchie as employed in other workouts--this one is all walking, no gimmicks. I used hand weights & my stretchie on my own during a few of the miles to add a bit of variety. I could do without the little odometer in the lower left hand corner--it's not giving any real data, anyways...but, that's a minor point. It's nice to have another workout to keep the motivation going. Thank you, Leslie!"
