A Bootcamp style workout that asks you to push yourself just a bit further in short 3–2 intervals!

The 45-minute session starts with a big BURN first mile! It’s the best prep for the core-slimming, arm-slimming and leg-slimming intervals in the next 2 miles! The 3-minute walk and 2-minute firm intervals make this intense… but do-able!… More >>

    I’ve been walking with Leslie for a few years; she helped me lose 36 pounds. So I’m very familiar with the music, moves, etc, from her workouts. This latest, however, offers something completely new: her first boot camp style walk. It comes with two “figure eight” bands; the yellow is lighter resistance, and the orange is heavier resistance, so you can work your way up.

    This is a 3 mile walk which, with warm up and cool down/ stretch, comes in at around 45 minutes. It’s just you and Leslie, no other walkers. The music is updated in this one and it’s pretty good. In mile 1, it’s all walking with the four basic Leslie moves: sidesteps, knee lifts, kicks and kickbacks. Some new moves are included here: a sidestep with heel crossed in front, sidestep with toe crossed in back, and a sort of box step that incorporates a knee lift. I could definitely feel those moves hitting the harder to reach areas of my legs.

    Miles 2 and 3 consist of 5 intervals: 2 minutes of brisk walking, 1 minute of “boosted walking” (jogging) and two minutes of strength training with the Figure 8. The strength training uses basic moves such as bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, chest presses, lunges, and an upper back exercise. The intervals REALLY pumped up the walk. Using the “boot camp” interval style is supposed to keep your metabolism revved and burn more calories; I could feel every muscle in my body got worked with this one. As an added bonus, it goes by fast. This would be a great introduction to Leslie; or, if you’ve been walking with her a long time, a great way to shake things up. This is one I’ll be doing often.

    I own almost every Leslie Sansone DVD – usually I play my own music and just do the moves – only because Leslie’s incessant talking drives me nuts. Of course, the first time I do a video, I do listen to it, so I understand the moves the next time I do it.

    But I really wasn’t ready for this one – it was really intense – a definite boot camp DVD – I made it through the DVD….huffing and puffing – and the next day I could barely move = my muscles were so sore. I blame myself – I should have known better. I like the DVD, but be warned – it IS intense and if you aren’t already at the 3 mile at a time level, you won’t be ready for this –

    I’m starting over with the 1 and 2 mile DVDs I have, then I’ll work my way back up to this level DVD!

    I have done many Leslie Sansone DVD’s and Tapes..this one is different than the rest..walking..boosted walking..new moves..toning..even a little ab work out at the end. If any of you are like me, I start getting bored with all the same moves, so I was excited she put a few new moves in this one! Looking forward to “more” new moves Leslie! PLEASE!!

    I only have one other Leslie Sansone DVD and I do enjoy it. I bought this one in hopes of being more challenged. Boy was I! I like the new moves and the inclusion of the boosts and the resistance training. This is the only 45 minute workout that I’ve ever owned (and I’ve owned MANY) where I don’t check the clock every 30 seconds to see how much longer I’ve got to go. The pace is fast and I’m actually kind of sore later in the day after doing it (which is a good thing!). The only negatives I can give is that I wish there were more resistance moves and that the cool down included a little bit more stretching. But I would definitely recommend this, particularly if you don’t have a ton of space at home to work out in. I sweat buckets doing this one and feel like I’m getting a good overall workout.

  5. It is very hot during the summer and this video was a nice change of pace. I have 3 other DVDs by Leslie and my favorite was the 5 mile fast paced walk but I was bored doing the same steps. Finally decided to try this one and it is so nice doing new moves. I will be able to rotate between the two.
