Leslie Sansone’s Mix & Match Walk Blasters* is a time-efficient, low impact workout. The DVD has ten 10-minute workouts. Each workout has a different theme, so there’s a lot of variety. The segments include:
- Light Walk
- Brisk and Steady
- Interval Walk
- Short and Sweaty
- Walk, Kick, and Jab
- Dance Walk
- Tummy Trimmer
- Lower Body Blast
- Upper Body Blast
- Flexibility Walk
The “Light Walk” can serve as a warm-up for the other segments, and the “Flexibility Walk” can be the cool down. All the segments feature familiar moves like marching in place, side steps, and kicks. There’s also newer moves like skaters (done without jumping) and standing oblique crunches. There are zero complicated steps. The program is really easy to follow.
This is one of the most unique DVDs offered by Leslie. There’s no counting miles. One mile usually is about 14 minutes in Leslie’s workouts. I don’t think I’ve ever done a walk-at-home workout that was shorter than that. The Mix & Match program gives you more control over the length of the workout. The addition of toning segments adds to this fitness program. The segments are done without weights, but Leslie suggests that hand weights can be added. There are several pre-programmed combinations that can be selected from the menu.
Leslie also gives a healthy lifestyle tips in each segment. These are simple tips like not skipping breakfast, maintain a habit of walking, and keep your spirit fed. Leslie calls her program “sensible fitness,” and it really is a sensible program (especially for fitness newbies).
As always, Leslie is bubbly. She chats with the individuals around her. She seems to be having fun, and her enthusiasm carries over to the workout.
The workouts are low intensity and are good for beginners. A single segment can also be done as a pick-me-up. The workout will not challenge someone with more fitness experience, but they are good for recovery days.
