Walking workout in a lovely outdoor setting. This DVD comprises 4 - 10 minute workouts to mix and match. The first 3 sections are 8 minutes of "walking" and 2 minutes of strength training (grab some dumbbells). The last section is a wonderful 10 minute stretch. I come back to this stretch time and time again.
As one reviewer points out you have to program 4 sections to skip the intro .....when I just want to do this stretch .... I pick section 4 (multiple times) and use the OFF button whenever I want. Not perfectly designed... but not a big hassle either.

This is Get Moving: Walking for Weight Loss with a new title

"Don't be fooled. This isn't a new workout, it was previously released as Get Moving: Walking for Weight Loss. It is a great workout, one of my favorites, but if you own the other DVD you already own a copy."
A Very Good at Home Exercise Video---Easy enough for beginne

"This is an excellent at home exercise DVD that does not have a lot of fancy or hard moves and does a great job to get your heart rate into your target zone. All you need is a DVD player and a small open space to perform it. It is split into 3 different 10 minute workouts and 1 cool down section. You can pick which ones you want to do or do all of them in succession. It gives you a good 30 minute workout. The instructor is excellent, moving through each sequence of the workout and allowing plenty of time to get the moves she is doing down. The instructor isn't a freakishly upbeat aerobic fanatic and doesn't make you feel like you have to have a PhD in dance moves. This is a great beginners workout DVD and is tough enough for someone who has been exercising for a long time to add something new to their regiment. I recommend this highly."
Promises flexibility but doesn't deliver

"I bought this based on other reviews and the blurbs on the packaging that promised "four 10-minute workouts." Because my time is sometimes limited, I look for flexibility. The packaging and her blathering on the DVD falsely claim you can use this to squeeze in 10-minute workouts - except it's not set up to allow you to do just that at all.
You can't select just one of the 3 "workouts" or cooldown. It's really 3 segments that increase in intensity. You either select the entire workout or you select the Custom feature. The problem here is that the so-called "custom" feature *requires* you to choose 4 "segments" - not just one - to continue. That means you have to choose 35-40 minutes of workout when you may just want to do (or have time for) 10 or 20 minutes.
The whole thing also starts off with a completely unnecessary and time-wasting introduction about the benefits of walking and the convenience of using this DVD. Worse, you can't simply skip this at the beginning like you can on either exercise DVDs. You either have to fast-forward through it or choose the "custom" feature to select the required 4 segments.
Luckily my local used bookstore accepts used DVDs, because that's where this one is going."
Beautiful garden setting

"The setting for this workout is in a garden pavillion and it is absolutely beautiful. Madeleine Lewis is a good instructor and cues the workout well. There are three ten minute aerobic "walking" segments that each end with some lower body toning and balancing, and then there is also a really fantastic 10-minute stretch. A nice feature is that you can program the DVD to do the segments in any order you want, or to do certain segments more than once and others not at all."
My bad - should have read ALL the reviews!

"I own Get Moving - Walking for Weight Loss - a favortie and regular in my exercise program. I was looking for more of Madeleine's workouts. I read only a couple of the reveiws and missed the one that heads warning this is only a RE-RELEASE of Get Moving - Walking for Weight Loss. When I got the DVD I had a sinking feeling I got a dupe (or got duped). I expect a bit more from Gaiam.
Long and short if you do not own Get Moving both (obviously) are a wonderful workout with three 10 minute sections and three levels to work at. Good lead ins - nice variety of movements and a soothing cool down."
