Certified instructor description:
Five easy-to-follow indoor “walks.” For maximum motivation and variety, Leslie uses a different technique in each program. Day One is the easiest; it's a straight-forward mix of Leslie's four basic steps — kicks, marches, knee lifts and step-touches. The next three workouts incorporate light toning that targets a specific body area: abs, upper body and lower body (e.g. squats during a march to help shape your buttocks). The last series is intense — a pull-out-all-the-stops “speed walking” sequence. This is a one-on-one-with-Leslie workout — her encouraging commentary is totally focused on you (not a big class). Note: All five workouts use the same warm-up and cooldown. DVD also has a “play all” function that provides a challenging, 85-minute, 5-mile workout. ©2008.
