I have to admit, I was not always nice about Leslie Sansone's walk dvd's. The last two DVD's that I tried, had me warming up to her. This one has pushed me over. I'm officially a fan.
What is wonderful about the DVD's overall is that there is now literally something for everyone. This DVD is on a more advanced level than any of the previous workouts that I tried. Leslie will teach you to 'walk like a runner'.
The DVD allows the walker to choose a specific mile (like mile #1...#2...whatnot) or the entire workout. This DVD does not use any bands, walk belts,weights or props. Each mile is 12 minutes long with the last two minutes featuring a "boost" walk. I love it!!
The miles go quicker than in previous videos because of the variety of movements. And the boost portion of the walk flies by.
Tap-outs are part of this routine and allows muscles to be worked that the previous DVD's I watched did not include. The Grapevine is back-one of my favorites.
Each mile has a different group of walkers. Leslie is solo in miles 1 and 5. I liked that the walkers looked like regular, normal, people. Each at different fitness levels. There is always someone to watch to bump the workout up or down.
Leslie continues to be positive and encouraging throughout the DVD. She does not appear "fake" as I've accused her of in other workouts. Not so much chat. More focus is on the workout but there is enough encouragement to pull walkers through any difficult spots.
There is not an option on this DVD for music only. I didn't need this option for this workout. It was perfect the way it was.
I've read some complaints about 'cheesy' music. Here is my take on this. When I'm doing the DVD's at home, I know I'm walking a 5mph pace. The music gets stuck in my head as I walk that pace. When I walk outside, I can recall the music and know that I am still walking a 5mph pace. So, the music is a hidden advantage. The music is a bit better on this DVD though.
Overall, I love this DVD. It is a great workout. It is challenging and there are also things that can increase the challenge in the future. The only improvement would be to have the stretch as a menu option. That way, if I'm not going to be using the entire workout, I can still get to the stretch quickly.
I highly recommend this DVD to anyone looking for a challenge walk!
