Classic, effective moves 1 May 2010
By Live2Cruise - Published on Amazon.com
This is a go-to walk for me on days when I don't have much motivation. It's 3 miles in around 45 minutes, and includes Leslie's classic moves: walking, side steps, knee lifts, and kicks. There are no "boosters" in this walk; it's just you and Leslie. The studio set is clean and classic; it's Exercise TV's set so different from Leslie's usual walk studio. There's some talk about the benefits of exercise for the heart, which is motivating. What I love the most, though, is the countdown clock in the upper right corner. It winds backwards as you walk, and on those days you just don't want to work out, it helps a lot to literally see the time winding down. I'm an intermediate exerciser and this definitely gets my heart rate up, but doesn't leave me feeling exhausted.

A step-up (walk up) for the heart-healthy needs 15 Jun 2010
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
I can't praise this lady's walking exercise enough. It has helped reverse the effects of my last heart attack. Walking exercise, diet, Rx, and prayer has eliminated traces of the last heart attack, with the exception of the stent. A true program for the heart patient. Now even the American Heart Association is recommending the walking with Leslie Sansone. She makes exercise easy, but it's still the needed aerobic workout, and at individualized level adaptability. You don't have to be a dancer to do this DVD.

You can add or subtract movement as needed to fit the stepping exercise to your own needs and ability for any particular day. I found it more low-impact friendly than the paved walking trail in our local park. Yes, with the DVD I work up a sweat, expected too in rehab. This is an inexpensive, equipment-free, method to reproduce cardio-rehabilitation success in your own home, at a fraction of the cost. I'd recommend the supervised rehab first, then Leslie for the rest of your life for continued heart-healthy living. Don't forget the diet, she stresses that too. This DVD also will take off some pounds, a positive side effect for every cardio patient.

Come to think of it, this cardio friendly DVD is also just what any health conscious person could use. Weight loss, toned muscle, aerobics, stretching, it's all there and presented in a friendly, non-threatening manner. Good for any age, any ability. The program is adjustable...daily.

This is a longer walking DVD, a companion to "Start! Walking with Leslie Sansone 1 & 2 Mile Walk". I recommend both, begin slower, 1 mile, 2 miles, work into the 3 mile, but you will do it quickly, IF you really use these DVDs daily. We did, my wife and I. She does it for routine weight & health maintainability. And my encouragement, God Bless her. We're hooked on Sansone DVDs at age 60+.

Heart Healthy Walk 22 Aug 2010
By Ron Scheuble - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered this DVD from Amazon.com about a week ago and didn't get an opportunity to use it until this very morning. What a workout! I was sweating like a stuck pig and really felt like I had gone to a gym instead of just working out in the privacy of my own home. I mean this is great for getting your day started and getting yourself up and motivated to face any challenges that may come your way. I recommend this DVD to anyone who is serious about losing weight and wanting to start an exercise program that they will "want" to continue. My goal is to walk 3 miles a day for this entire week and I know I WILL do it because Leslie makes all of her walking tapes fun and enjoyable. You really feel like you have accomplished something great by the time you hit that Cool Down part of the tape. I will be 67 this next month and Leslie helps me to feel like I'm 16 again. Give it a try -- you're never too old or too young to exercise!

Easily My Favorite American Sweat Heart: Leslie Sansone - Go (Slim) Figure! 3 Oct 2011
By G. Charles Steiner - Published on Amazon.com
I did not think at first that this DVD was very special. Inwardly, I complained a lot, like all non-fans or disappointed fans of Leslie Sansone generally do outwardly and on Amazon reviews. This DVD was "just another 3-mile walk" with Leslie Sansone -- b-o-r-i-n-g. I put the DVD aside after only one viewing and tryout -- and continued working out instead with a lot of other DVDs I own with Leslie Sansone leading them, thinking that these other DVDs were more "fun" and offered more exuberance and motivation and better music, etc. -- until one day I had problems with my DVD player and the only DVD that would play properly was Leslie Sansone's "Start! Walking At Home." I followed the workout on the DVD perfunctorily at the start (no pun intended) until after finishing the program I noticed I was sweating. I don't usually sweat on a 3-mile aerobic walk, but this time I did sweat and I did not feel exhausted as I usually do when I workout enough to sweat. What was going on?

That day I replayed the DVD program for a second time, doing the 3-mile exercise one more time for a total of 6 miles, and while working out I realized how much I enjoyed the pace, the rhythm, of this particular DVD work out session. Nor did I experience boredom. My workout routine with Leslie Sansone changed from that day on.

Having gotten my DVD player repaired such that I can choose any DVD I want to watch, I have been choosing this particular workout now over all the other Leslie Sansone DVDS and am doing the workout twice in a row for a total of nearly 90 minutes three to four times a week. Wow! Not only have I been losing weight, I enjoy the workout and the music each and every time.

What I think is going on with this DVD in particular is that Leslie Sansone is totally focused on exercise and thus helps the viewing exerciser stay focused as well. It's all about the heart and sweating and losing weight with her here; it's not about developing a positive attitude; it's not lecturing on how to make exercise a priority in one's life. There's no chatty discussions on non-essential subjects as is frequently done in her other workout DVDs. Leslie Sansone does not try to entertain you with puns or stories either.

Finally, for all intents and purposes, Leslie Sansone makes no mistakes in her walking instructions and choreography. She doesn't talk about how "you can't do it wrong" or how her leg just doesn't want to "do what she wants it to do" as she's done many times in her other DVDs. Leslie is completely on-target and focused for this particular exercise program at hand. All chat is strictly limited to addressing the heart, the body parts involved, and getting a good workout. It is a totally clean and straight program. Thus, there is no drag or fatigue for the viewer either.

And while the program isn't choreographed dancing, it is clearly choreographed walking --- and it rocks! She's created a very upbeat and inspiring program that's very good for the heart in at least two ways: physically challenging and emotionally satisfying.

A Solid walking program 24 May 2010
By mnhtarheel - Published on Amazon.com
These DVD's are great! The 1 mile is beginner-intermediate and a good starting point. It will get your heart-rate up. The 2 mile is perfect for me in the early AM before work...30 minutes of walking to energize me for the day. The 3 mile is more advanced, though it is easily adaptable if you aren't quite at this level yet. Just make the moves less intense..or take the arm movements out. You will work up to it. Leslie Sansone's workouts are perfect for people who don't want to do higher impact as this ends up being too hard on your joints as you get older. Walking is the best all around exercise for cardiovascular health. Leslie takes it up a notch by adding more movement..side steps, knee lifts, kick-backs, tap outs. I am very pleased with these DVD's. I have a collection of her DVD's...from beginner to advanced. Try these! You won't be disappointed.
