It's a BIG Calorie Burning WALK CONCERT in your HOME!
We've all heard it before. The most effective workout plan is the one you actually DO! But 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 key, and music is one of the best motivators. Great music makes your workout more fun 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 longer periods of recovery, allowing you to walk a shorter session while blasting 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 remixed some of her favorite radio hits to a fitness beat and combined them with some fresh new Walk At Home moves to create one of the most fun 3 mile walks ever.
The high-energy gang of walkers, the music, the moves, the miles, the smiles …..It's more FUN than anyone should have on a fitness walk!

Fast, Fun, Dancy Walking Workout!!
Such a fun, different walk with Leslie!
Some things I loved:
-upbeat music was fun to move to
-large, diverse group of walkers of all ages (some of her recent videos have mostly been very young women, and I like seeing some women my age and some who aren’t a "perfect" body shape)
-different moves to shake up the routine, but integrated in with her normal moves so that I never felt overwhelmed by trying to learn a ton of new steps
-they did the whole thing in one long walk, instead of a break/change of people between each mile. I like to see them all get sweaty; it makes me feel better when I’m working my butt off!
-the walkers in this DVD just seem to be having so much fun. I loved that. It really did give me more energy and enjoy the walk more.
-the HIIT section was not overwhelming or exhausting (four sets of two minutes moderate cardio and 30 seconds high impact fast jogging/twisting), but it definitely got my heart rate up
-length of 3 miles (45 minutes) is my favorite length to exercise
-I like the brisk pace throughout. Very energetic
Some things to consider:
-If you love Leslie’s older walks, you might find this one kind of disconcerting, because it is VERY different
-It is a lot more "dancy" than most of her workouts that I’ve done, but again, I’m like the least graceful dancy person ever, and I felt like it was doable
-If you don’t like newer music you might hate this, although it’s not 100% radio hits; it’s about 50/50 with remixed hits and then music that is more like her traditional stuff
-this does include high impact, though not a ton, and she shows you how to modify. Still, if you can’t do high impact you might want to look for one of her older walks.
All in all– I love this workout and I’m very pleased with my purchase!
Solid Walk Workout
Leslie’s enthusiastic and encouraging; wish her cueing was consistent, as she cues early and then late, which is frustrating when learning the workout, & this is similar to many of her workouts.
Love the music only option for days when I don’t want the chatter.
Some performers improvise/personalize the moves with brazilian and hip hop inspirations… an unexpected twist, and okay for me.
I’m glad I bought it, as it is prepping me for more challenging material; and this will remain a reliable, effective staple in the inventory.

I have now done this DVD repeatedly and if you choose the Music only option totally makes all the difference there is a lot of good songs on here and it is super fun. The regular play option they must get rid of the lyrics.
