Certified instructor description:
Five easy-to-schedule workouts. Each weekday, you'll use a different technique to reshape your body. “Muscle Mile One” features weighted balls to increase intensity and add some upper-body toning. “30 Minute Walk” and “Walk Diet” are classic Leslie fat-burners. They have super-simple steps and lots of intensity-boosting arm motions. “Walk Strong” includes aero/tone intervals designed to blast calories as they build lean muscle. “You Can Do Pilates” is a straight-forward Pilates program featuring traditional matwork. DVD requires weighted balls (or dumbbells). It comes with a resistance band, but the band is not used in any of the workouts. Compilation released in 2009 from programs originally copyrighted in 2001-2004.
