is the general name of several fitness DVDs by instructor Leslie Sansone. The DVDs are all meant to show people how to do walking exercises at home to shed pounds. The Walk Away the Pounds DVDs and the Walk At Home series by the same trainer provide various walking exercises that can be done in the privacy of your own home and are in essence walking in place workouts.

I’ve long been a fan of walking for weight loss as I find it an activity that can produce excellent results for people who either don’t have a gym membership or who just don’t want to do highly intensive strength and cardio training.
While you can lose weight faster with more intensive workouts, it often pays to do things more gradually and the Walk Away The Pounds DVDs provide a motivational boost and source of guidance on how to make walking more interesting and diverse right in your home.
The Exercises in Walk Away the Pounds
Each DVD which bears this name is slightly different than the others. Some are longer and more intensive such as the Leslie Sansone: Walk at Home – 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk DVD and some include a variety of other exercises that are meant to train your upper body as you walk. However, the main focus of these fitnss DVDs is on helping you get a cardio workout by walking.
To make your walks more interesting, Leslie Sansone incorporates various steps in her workouts. These aren’t some of those complicated aerobic dance steps you see on other fitness DVDs but are more suitable for beginners. These steps include:
- Side steps
- Kick backs
- Knee lifts
In addition, the pace in which you walk throughout these DVDs change from moderate to fast and back again, keeping you on your toes and in the workout mood for the duration of the workouts.
Walk Away the Pounds Reviews and Testimonials
What strikes me as most impressive is the number and ratio of positive reviews these DVDs get. When I look at some of the Amazon listings of these products I am practically amazed by how much people seem to like them. I think this is so for the following reasons:
- The products actually deliver on their description. This is a lesson that other fitness brands and products would be wise to follow. It’s not hard to create good products. Just don’t paint them in too rosy colors.
- The price is fair. These DVDs are very affordable. The Walk Away the Pounds Ultimate Collection costs less than $15.
- You can actually get results with these DVDs.
- No infomercial is trying to make it seem like you can lose weight without any effort.
