I do this without a treadmill. Sometimes I like a walking workout at home. This one fits the bill. Tracey gives form tips and jokes with her sister and friend, which helps the time go by fast.

"I really enjoy doing this workout; there are segment changes every 30, 45, 60 seconds, which keeps me from getting bored. Starts off with a warm-up, climbing hills, lunges (done with the pace turned down), lunges with a back leg lift, weights are used, and it has a good cool down. No running. For me, this is a keeper."

"Fit By Tracey: Walking Strong is a fitness DVD designed for viewers who exercise by walking, including walking on a treadmill. Broken into eleven five-minute segments, Fit By Tracey: Walking Strong varies one's walking routine by alternating between cardio walks and strength walks (with resistance training). Certified personal trainer Tracey Staehle guides the viewer with clear narration and a demonstration of the advanced version of her treadmill workout, while her sister Bobbi demonstrates a less intense version on the treadmill. Their friend Jill demonstrates the workout on the floor without a treadmill. Inexpensive lightweight dumbbells are recommended to get the most out of exercising to Fit By Tracey: Walking Strong. A superb exercise video especially for the elderly, people recovering from severe illness or surgery, or anyone who needs a good workout but can't put excessive strain on their joints by jumping. Approximately 55 minutes.

"If you intend to use this video while walking on a treadmill, it may be beneficial. Otherwise, it is very annoying: There are 3 exercisers who walk at a differnet pace. One on the floor and 2 on treadmills. It is very difficult to keep a constant pace as the camera shifts from one to the other and accordingly, the pace changes. The idea of using weights while on a treadmill is fine, but why do it? It is not a very useful muscle strengthener and the cueing is practically non-existent. I wish I knew why the participants seem so annoyingly happy all the time, while I had a hard time following them.
I have scores of videos which I use daily. This is one of the worst I came across. Don't buy it if you don't intend to use it with a treadmill!"
