I have a few of her videos. I really like them. I think you'll get a good workout from it.

music can help motivate
Music that has a beat that matches your foot strikes can really help get you moving and keep you going while you're walking.

I listen to music a lot while I use my treadmill. I love it.

I even use it to reward myself for meeting goals. When I want to purchase new tunes, I have to earn them. :) Works for me. It keeps things fresh and I'm looking forward to the additions. It gives me a reason to go a little farther.

i used the mixes from djsteveboy to work on my running cadence; the mixes are techno and cover a wide range of beats. each is about an hour long, and they're free. visit his archives here:

don't have any experience with that particular walk program, but go for it!!!

Neva, I just started WATP. Today will be day 3. I personally believe it's a great workout. It's part of my 21 day challenge. I will let you know of my progress if you like.
Take care!
I'm doing the 2 mile walk. I lost my 3 mile DVD :(

I've been using the video series of one, two, and three mile walks which incorporates the weighted balls. I don't use the balls, which are awkward, but little three-pound dumbbells work fine for me. It's a pretty good series. As a guy with very little coordination, I think the moves are easy to follow and a good substitute for a regular brisk walk when you cannot get outside or when you just want to try some variety.

There are lots of different videos to choose from. The ones where she interacts with a group are more interesting than those featuring Leslie exercising solo.:)

Lynnda-Thanks for recommending that website of Leslies. I will be trying that today. It sure beats borrowing my friend's treadmill and having that eye sore in the middle of my livingroom. Her video looks fun and definitely doable.
