Full Backcover Description
It’s a big calorie burning walk concert in your home! With all of the demands in everyone’s busy life, it’s not so easy to find the time and energy to exercise. Motivation is the key, and music is on e of the best motivators. Great music makes your workout more enjoyable and keeps you exercising because you look forward to it. That’s why Leslie created Walk to the Hits.
Walk to the Hits features hit music and High Intensity Interval Training (aka HiiT) – it’s the perfect combination! Hit music pumps up your pace, and HiiT training alternates between short bursts of “all out” effort and periods of recovery, allowing you to walk a shorter session and blast away as many calories as you would in a longer one.
a study published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness showed that women who completed a 12 week HiiT program lost more weight than a group who performed longer sessions of moderate intensity cardio. The HiiT group also lost more belly fat. In short, walking to the hits using HiiT training is a sure-fire way to fire-up your walk.
For this program, Leslie took some of her favorite radio hits, remixed them to a fitness beat and combined them with fresh new Walk At Home moves to create a 3 mile walk that is one of the most fun ever.
this high-energy group of walkers, the music, the moves, the miles, the smiles – it’s more fun than anyone should have on a fitness walk!

Certified instructor description:
It maximizes the variety with three new elements: Diverse moves, hit music and interval-style pacing. As always with Leslie, it's easy-to-follow and fun, now just a little more interesting than her other programs. Moves: In addition to the usual marches and kicks, she also includes grapevines and hip rocks plus “turning tap-outs” and “diagonal lunges” (often with easier options). Music: You'll be working out to speeded-up versions of these radio hits: “I Like to Move It,” “Let's Get Loud,” "Get this Party Started" and “Everybody Talks” (sometimes just the instrumentals when Leslie is speaking). Pacing: While it's mostly fast-paced, Leslie does include a few faster/slower “cardio interval” segments. ©2013.
