Editorial Review: I am a big fan of Leslie Sansone. Her warm smile, positive attitude, and caring personality makes me want to work out with her. Her DVDs keep me in shape and keep my weight down. Since I have the attention span of a gnat, I need variety in my workouts. Therefore I have a dozen of her workouts because some days I want cardio, some days I want strength training with the resistance band or dumbbells, other days I choose a workout based on how many miles I have time to do or feel like doing. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoy this older DVD of hers. The Walk Strong has very good strength training intervals (I use 5# dumbbells), the Walk & Kick is loads of fun and I worked up a good sweat, and the Walk & Jog has four 2-minute intervals of jogging that gets your heart pounding! If you are used to the newer workouts, you'll have to get past the boring background and completely unresponsive cast but I don't care. I'm doing the workouts to stay in shape. I'm 54 years old and want to stay healthy.
