Fitness Friday: Walking Away The Pounds

When Ondria and I still lived at home with our parents, every evening our Mom, Ondria and myself, would exercise. It was a great way for us to stay in shape and do something together. We chose to do a Walk Away the Pounds by Leslie Sansone- DVD. The DVD is called Walk and Kick, and it incorporated kick boxing segments into the walk. It's low impact enough for my Mom to enjoy with her bad knee, but enough cardio to get your heart pumping and a total body workout.

It had been several years, 6 or so, since I had used that DVD, and I wanted to start it up again. I remember how much fun we used to have and I really enjoyed the movements. The only problem, I didn't own it, my Mom does and she lives 16hrs away! So I found it on Amazon, and ordered it. I couldn't wait for it to arrive. Once it did, I quickly changed into my workout gear and set out to workout!

There are eight segments in all during the course of the workout. Four walking segments and Four kick boxing segments. You'll learn to jab while bobbing and weaving, you'll learn how to do kick backs, step squats, leg lifts and so much more. You're whole body will be thanking you after this workout is done!

I love Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds series, it is so easy to workout in your home and all you're doing is walking. You'd be surprised at how quickly you'll work your way up to her 4 mile walk and how fast it will go by. I've been doing them every night for 2 weeks now and I am looking forward to adding a new one into the mix!

If you are new to excising, please consult a Doctor, and start off small. You don't want to over exert your self and have an injury.


  1. I have seen her DVDs (& before that, videos) for years! I think I might need to buy one! It sounds like a good one for those of us with mobility issues.
