"I am new to Leslie Sansone in-home walking, although I'm certainly not new to exercise DVDs and tapes. I have not been working out regularly for the past couple of years and was kind of skeptical about the walking DVDs, yet curious because they're so popular. I picked up the Walk At Home 5-Mile Walk and here's what it includes:
1-mile walk w/firming band
1-mile walk w/hand weights
1-mile walk w/walk belt
1-mile fast walk
1-mile walk like a runner
7-Day Healthy Weight Loss Meal Plan
You can select from four different walking programs. All four include the Walk Like a Runner and Fast Walk, but you have the choice between three-mile walks (those two plus one of each with the "extras") or the Super Challenge, which is all five miles. My DVD also included the firming band. Even though I would consider myself a beginner, I was able to successfully complete the five-mile walk on my first day. It was a great workout but not overwhelming. I don't have a walk belt, so I used the firming band for that segment and it worked fine.
I did take one point off of my rating because I can see Leslie getting a bit annoying if doing this DVD over and over again. She interjects a lot of motivational comments that have nothing to do with exercise. Personally, I wish she'd stick to talking about exercise, but if you enjoy her motivational talk, you'll probably find this DVD a five-star since the workout is great."
Great 5 Mile Workout!

"I absolutely love this DVD because it's chaptered! I think this is the first chaptered Leslie Sansone DVD! There are 5 walking segments: walk with weights (15 mins), walk with belt (15 mins), walk with bands (12 mins), 9 minute walk, 13 1/2 minute walk (yes I timed all segments!) I really don't know why some people are concerned about the supposedly lack of warm up because I find that 3 of the 5 segments have a gradual active warm up. That means, the workout starts off slowly and gradually builds up the pace. The 1 mile walks that use the weights, belt and bands all have that gradual active warm up. The 9 minute mile and 13 1/2 minute mile starts off at a pretty brisk pace and I love it! If one is concerned about the warm up then just program your player to start the workout with either the walk with weights, walk with belt or walk with bands. Then you can just add the 9 minute mile and 13 1/2 minute mile thereafter. I don't use her premixes, I make my own! The DVD is well-chaptered that you can just mix and match to your hearts content. I would recommend this: Program your player to do: walk with bands, walk with weights, 9 minute mile, 13 1/2 mile and finally walk with belt. BTW, I find that you don't actually need the belt and bands. Hand weights are just fine! My only complaint is that the music is rather faint. All in all I give this DVD 5 stars! Happy walking :)"

"This DVD is awesome. I really works you out. I love the faster pace and I feel like I've really burned calories and fat. I'm 59 years young and I can finish the entire workout. Thanks Leslie for inspiring me to "walk away the pounds"
This is the best Leslie DVD yet.

"This is set up so well. You can chose from several different exercise programs. You can pick a 5 mile including a mile with weights, a mile with stretchy band, a mile with interval training and a mile with the belt. Or it gives you a selection of three mile work outs with any combination you chose."
