Very good walking video

"Since walking is highly recommended by doctors and exercise gurus, this production by Ms. Rocker provides the exerciser with a 2 well-instructed walks. New exercisers can either follow the full workout in the AM or PM section or the new exercisers can follow the modifications presented. Neither walk is difficult and all exercisers look pleased to be out walking in the beautiful outdoors. Recommended workouts."
Beautiful Scenery, but Pretty Dull

"I was an avid step aerobic addict for many years, but a series of bad repetitive-motion injuries forced me to stop just about all types of exercise except walking. I prefer to walk outside, but in Indiana this is often a problem in the winter. After trying Leslie Samsone's AND Prevention's walking videos, all of which had too much marching in them, I had high hopes for this one. Although I like the scenery a lot, and do prefer Debbie Rocker's personality, this video is disappointing in two significant ways. First, there is TOO MUCH MARCHING IN PLACE!! I do not understand why these instructors use marching as a warm-up or a place for supposed rest or cool-down, when actually marching in place is very difficult for anyone with repetitive-motion injuries!!! The movements that are actually less stressful to the joints are the step-tap types that are used elsewhere in the video. During the marching segments, I substitute step-tap type movements, or just walk in time around the room. Second, Debbie has made some very basic errors in her cueing. She refers to "left" and "right" without realizing that for the viewer these sides are reversed. Another annoying habit she has is to tell the viewer that we are about to change to a new step or pattern, but then take FOREVER to actually make the change. Furthermore, there is no predictable rhythmic set-up for the change each time. Sometime she'll give 4 beats preparation, sometimes much more. The moves are, of course very easy, but for a seasoned instructor like Debbie, why are her instructions so sloppy?
I'll probably use this video on poor-weather days until I find (hopefully) one that is better suited to my needs."
Great Way to Get Into Shape

"This video and audio cd set are enjoyable, make you sweat and get you into shape. It is the only way to start your day and a great way to end it. It is fun, obtainable and you see results. I have been following along with the dvd 5 days a wk since early Feb. 2008. I have lost 18 lbs. and many inches in my waist, toned my arms and toned my legs. My energy level is up, my outlook on life is much happier and my kids, friends and husband notice how I look and act. Thank you Debbie for making this incredible life changing dvd set. Only 10 more lbs. to go. Its a new me! Everyone, my kids, my friends and my 75 year old mother have become hooked on the dvd."
Great walking video

"This is a really great exercise video. You get two solid workouts that are easy to follow, work the entire body, and leave you with that "I just did something realy good for myself today" feeling. I only wish it was a little longer. I like to aim for 45 minutes. These two run for about 30 each (including warm-up, work-out, and cooldown/stretching). If you are pressed for time these are for you. Great for beginners too."
