I love the workout, but hate listening to Leslie's giggling and ridiculous comments. Leslie, we just need you to give directions on moves. Talk about what you eat each day. Ask the people how much weight they've lost and what they eat. But I don't care if you beat your kids at kickball or if Jimmy got quiet. Luckily, you can turn the sound off on this so there's just music. It really will work up a good sweat.
I Really Love Leslie, But...

"I have a bunch of her tapes, including the 4 Mile Super Challenge. I figured this tape said Fast Miles, so it would take less time. It's about 10 minutes shorter or so and does incorporate boost walking, her term for jogging. I've only used it once and might feel differently if I get used to it, but I didn't feel like it was her best work. She does the workout in her new studio, which looks almost like a stage to me and with all the room available, everyone looked squashed together. It became more apparent during one of her boost walks when they were jogging up and back and got in each other's way. She had her daughter, niece, the niece's roomate, a friend and some trainers from her studio and I felt like I was watching a tape someone made of one of her workout sessions. It's not a good production, you can see the cameras, and her cues are off more than usual. The stretching at the end is unorganized, because she was so involved in introducing her walkers. I really felt like the workout was thrown together.
If you have a choice between this workout and the Super Challenge, definitely take the Super Challenge. It's energizing, the walkers are seasoned pros and the music is catchy. After I finished this tape, I popped in the One Mile Walk and Jog because I didn't find this workout satisfying."
Leslie's Best Workout Yet!

"I have tried many of Leslie's walking dvds, but I have to say that this one is by far the best. I have never worked up a sweat with any of her previous workouts. This one had me sweating and loving it. Her new studio set took me by surprise - it wasn't what I was used to -but after about 5 minutes I was so into the walking I didn't care what the set looked like. I love the intervals and the music this time was great. My favorite sections were the booster walking - which is really a jog. I did the entire workout all the way through - and had so much energy it made even my Monday morning blues disappear. This was is a KEEPER!!!!!!!!!!"
A very good workout

"This is a very good workout. The workout is about 50 minutes and it starts out with a warm up then brisk walking for about 5 minutes or so. Then Leslie takes you into intervals of brisk walking then jogging. You brisk walk for three minutes then "jog" for two minutes. You go through five cycles of intervals. The jogging intervals include jogging in place, jogging back and forth, jumping side leg swings, jumping knee lifts, and jumping kicks. There are no handweights or other upperbody boosters used during this workout. If you have done Leslie's "Walk Jog" DVD or her really old "4 Mile Weight Loss Walk" then you would be familiar with the format of this workout with the intervals. She stops between intervals 2 and 3 for a very short water break and I welcomed it! My only complaint is that once the intervals are over she slows the walk way down toward the middle of the 4th mile. She does this in almost all of her long walks and I really wish she would keep the intensity high right up to the end.
Anyway, I liked the DVD and will definitely be doing it regularly. It is more intense than the 4 Mile Super Challenge and is good for days when you want to do a hi/lo class with more intensity."
