Walk Away the Pounds: The Breakthrough 6-Week Program Aug 29, 2006
Great workouts I have lost 15 lbs since I started the program about 6 weeks ago.
Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone Feb 16, 2006
Gets us old timers out of the house and in the gym and go at my own pace.
Nice way to ease into an exercise Oct 29, 2005
This book has been helpful to me because it eases me into exercising without overwhelming me with alot of 'rules' I need to follow.
The book has an introduction that gives you the scoop on why walking is such an effective workout, why walking is good for you health and informs you on a few things you need before you begin the program.
The next section deals with the actual exercises you will be doing during your 6-week challenge. Leslie has plenty of pictures of how to do the stretches, strength training moves and basic walking moves. Leslie is pictured using weighted gloves, weighted balls, an ab belt, and stretch band. If you want to see these images before you purchase the book, check out her website at [...]
Part 3 of the book is titled, "The Program" and is basically a place to journal your progress through the 6-week program. At the beginning of each week, you are asked to write down your goals for that week and what you accomplished the week before. There is also a walk booster for every week and they involve things such as, taking a multi-vitamin, drinking plenty of water, adding strengh training, self-acceptance, and sleep.Leslie makes it very clear that you can choose whether or not you want to do the walk booster every week. She really just wants you to start walking! In the daily journal pages, you are asked when you will walk that day, did you walk that day, did you take your vitamin, how did you feel and a beautiful thing. As the program progresses, you will also keep up with water intake and how much sleep you got. There are a few pages that also give you the opportunity to keep the program going after the six weeks by walking longer distances. Chapters on walking during and after pregnancy, senior walking, and changing your eating habits are included.
Finally, the 4th section of the book is titled "Making Life Work." Leslie tells you a little bit about herself, how to deal with stress, and motivation.
The book includes a DVD but I was disappointed with it. The walking pace didn't match the pace of the music. I highly recommend Leslie's other walking tapes. She has a great many to choose from on her website and most come with a video preview you can see right on your computer screen.
I have enjoyed doing the program so far and once again, it eases you into every step without having to do everything at once.
Buy it! Aug 6, 2005
My son and I are about half done with the 6-week program, and we both notice a definite improvement in how we feel. It's the first time that he has been so enthused about walking, or exercise of any kind. I recommend without reservations! We've also bought a couple of her DVDs to walk with, which helps.
Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone Aug 2, 2005
I have enjoyed it and it has got me walking again. Which I did need. I have enjoyed how they spliced it together (CD), she looses a pager or cell phone once and in the middle of walking she does some kicks. I also listened to the audible download but the CD and book are much better. I'm not sorry I purchased it.
