Leslie Sansone - Walk Off Even More Weight
I picked up this DVD over a year ago on clearance at target. I think it was 15 dollars, marked down to 5 or so. I was so excited to buy it, but hadn't quite finished packing up for my move & decided to wait until I was settled in at my new apartment. The DVD got packed away and forgotten about until a month ago. Oops! Better late than never, right?
Let's get down to business. The DVD comes with a 2 pound adjustable weighted belt. At first I was really skeptical about whether or not an extra 2 pounds could really help a workout, but no longer. This belt is amazing! I've even used it while doing other exercises and I think it might be one of my favorite things in addition to my ankle and wrist weights.
All I can say after using this DVD a few times is this : what an amazing find! I didn't really think walking could ever FEEL like a real workout, but this DVD proves me wrong. The weighted belt is great. I use 5 pound weights in addition to the belt & even tried it with ankle weights. I really felt it afterwards, in a good way.
The DVD has two different 2 mile walks and a quick 5 minute Express walk. Each of the 2 main walks take less than 30 minutes. One of the 2 mile walks is at a decent pace, while the other one is definitely more fast paced. I like to use the 5 minute Express walk, and follow it up with the fast paced walk. I haven't been up to much exercise this week so I've been popping in this DVD when I was able. Sadly, the last few times I've been sticking with the slower of the two walks. I am sure by next week I will be back up to the faster walk!
This is a fun, quick DVD. I am looking forward to getting more by Leslie in the near future.
