Walking is the cheapest and efficient way to use when it’s about losing weight.

I do not know how many of you heard about Leslie Sansone Walk At Home programs and used them. Usually in the long, cold winter days I have used her programs.

I also run or walk on the treadmill, but her programs have some cardio sessions and you will get warm.

When I heard first time about a walking DVD, I thought somebody is making fun of me and I laughed. After I tried it, I have changed my opinion.

  1. This seems like it would be a great option for people just starting to work out, it seems like it would be really low stress on your joints! Just getting up and getting moving is the most important step.

    1. It’s a great option, I tried myself. I still practice and I enjoy it each time.

      Indeed, the joints are not stressed as it’s a gentle workout.

      Stay healthy!

  2. I really want to lose weight with resistance bands however I wonder I do intermittent fasting and what would be the ideal time for me to do this program?

    1. The programs are very easy and they are not stressing your joint. The exercises are designed from a slow tempo to a high one and back to the initial tempo.
      If you talk about the usual fasting (no diary and meat products), the programs are doable.

      Stay heathy!

  3. This is such a detailed review on Leslie Sansone weight loss and keeping belly in shape program. You’ve indicated not only the usefulness of the program but also the price tag that comes as $12.95 – $39.95.

    The proof is your inclusion of all the DVD demos that come in different phases for the whole year.

    That was a good read with your 100% recommendation which I believe will have a far reaching impact and also, I sincerely encourage every reader willing to lose weight through walking to go for it.

    Wishing you all the best.

    1. Thank you for your comment 🙂
      I also use the programs, combine them and I can see really nice results. The workouts are easy and very comfy doing at home.

      Stay healthy!
