Fresh, Modern, Variety & Still Classic Leslie! April 3, 2014
Reviewer: R. Savini  
I have worked out with Leslie for quite some time, and I have had nearly all her dvd's. I love the walking concept because its quick, low impact and does not really "feel" like exercise which is how I am able to psych myself into doing it regularly. I am in my early 30's as well, and I LOVE The bright white, vibrant fresh sets. I could not stand the old studio with the black walls, ugg. I only use the fresh set workouts now, the others are just too depressing. However I like the fact that there are new faces, and new music....who wants the same old thing all the time? There are some new moves but still mostly the classic Leslie we all know and love. I LOVE the fact that its customizable and there is a lot of variety here to change it up (which is good for those of use who workout on most days, lets face it, variety is KEY). Overall a great mix. I get bored with the "2 up and 2 back" bit, and usually do squats/lunges or something during this time anyway so I like some toning mixed in. I think anyone who wants a nice low impact, effective workout would like this. Plus ladies who have been working out forever with Leslie will love it as well. She's positive, and bubbly without being fake which is rare these days. I enjoy Leslie and will probably walk with her forever!

Ultimate 5 day walk plan is great April 3, 2014
Reviewer: C. L. Crable "Luv the Brits"  
I thought The Ultimate Challenge DVD was my favorite, but this one is now my new favorite. Yes, I liked how in the Ultimate Challenge she has older walkers, because I'm 58 and thought, if they could do it so could I. But I like this one because you can create your own combo of walks along w/abs, legs, arms etc. I don't mind the walkers a bit,The WHOLE POINT IS TO MOVE not to be friends w/the walkers. Plus, they're very energetic. I like the different moves (some of the moves I don't do because of shoulder problems, like the jumping, so I just do my favorite moves till it changes back) and I really like the faster pace. Plus, I like a good 5 mile walk. And sometimes I need the reminder to "stand up tall, shoulders back, engage your core". I like the generic music, which is upbeat. I've only been doing the Sansone DVDs for about 4 months now, but I'm totally ready to get rid of my treadmill. Now THAT'S boring. I will definitely go back to The Ultimate Challenge to change it up when I reach my goal weight (which is getting really close now!) but I really like this scaled up version.

Disappointing April 3, 2014
Reviewer: Coz  
I so wanted this to be a new, interesting workout, but I am disappointed. The same old moves with only slight variations and even the same old phrases! I have been working out with Leslie since the 1990's. My very first workout video was "Basic Stepping with Walk Aerobics". It was great. Bet very few people know Leslie has made 2 step videos! But, fast forward to 2012 and she is still talking about posture and juice in the joints and how important it is to warm up. That's what is bugging me the most, her comments never vary. And while I'm working out, I don't want to be told what a good workout it is, I already bought it, you don't have to sell it to me! This is the kind of thing that should be stated in an intro, not the workout that people will be doing weekly if not daily. Having said all that,I do think her workouts are safe and effective. Most of the music is different, but there are still some of the oldies she always uses in there. I do love her positive energy but I can't listen to the same thing over and over any more.

Wonderful for a daily mile ... April 3, 2014
Reviewer: Charlie  
When I ordered this DVD I mostly wanted something which would allow me to do one different mile of strictly walking (no boosters) each weekday at lunchtime. Unlike Leslie's other 5-miler DVDs (all of which I have and enjoy), this one automatically adds the warm-up and cool-down to the mile one chooses, making for a good workout of about 22 minutes. Then on weekends I can mix & match the walks and the toning sessions as I wish. A very versatile DVD. I don't mind the music and I like seeing the younger walkers. I admire Leslie for changing formats without changing her basic product. I have been "walking" with her for many years, and hope she keeps going for many years to come.
