Walk at Home and Lose Pounds

Get up and start moving---3 minutes at a time!

For over 25 years, Leslie Sansone has revolutionized the fitness industry with her Walk Away the Pounds videos and DVD’s. No longer do you have to join a gym or jog around the park to get in shape. Now it is easy to get physically fit by walking right in the privacy of your own living room and lose pound after pound doing it. It takes just one time to see what a difference at-home walking can make.

Now, Leslie has given us a free 3-minute online preview that can be used by anyone, anytime, to get moving. This mini-walk helps to “boost your brain power” as you get up and loosen up right where you are—even in the office. It’s amazing how good 3 minutes of movement can feel! You've got to try it.

Of course, Leslie’s many at-home-walking DVD’s and videos give you a much more complete workout. You can start with an “easy one mile walk” and move onto the more brisk 2,3,4 and even 5 mile versions.

Weight Watchers recommends 30 minutes of exercise per day but many of us don’t have the time, or money, to go to the gym. Use this great Walk Away the Pounds Express DVD from Leslie Sansone and walk at home, instead.


What does it take? Walking in place, knee lifts, side steps and kicks. That’s all there is to it! Four simple moves to a great beat with lots of encouragement from Leslie and her group of walking enthusiasts.

Each DVD is tailored to your needs and abilities. No pressure. Go at your own pace, stop when you need to, revisit it as often as you want. Lose weight. Look and feel great! What’s not to love?

It is. When I get off my walking routine, I really feel it. I walk my yellow lab, but she sniffs everything on the way so that's no exercise for me LOL. I try walk with a Leslie Sansone DVD at least 3 days a week and then use her free 3 minute online preview when I have a moment alone in the office, just to loosen up a bit.

Hey, this could very well come in handy for me! I live in the Pacific Northwest where it rains all the time, sometimes a walk outside just isn't palatable. Plus, I have kids at home. I think the idea of home exercise is a good one. I like the Wii Fit revolution for that reason. Sometimes the only thing that stands between one and exercise is just physically GOING to the gym. Taking out that piece makes a lot of sense. Great information.

My mom keeps telling me I should walk more, she is a strong believer in it as an exercise.

I find it fascinating the number of people who pay for a gym memberships to walk or run on a treadmill. it may seem boring to walk such small distances in the house but it cant be anymore boring than walking or running in one place on a treadmill and its free. although distance tracking would be more difficult. I have learned to calculate that about 20 minutes equals a mile.

I live in a rural area so private walking is available except when its -20 I stick to running up and down stairs and some trips around the house.

Great idea.

I don't have time to drive to and from the gym. I'd rather stick close to home...or in my home...to get the job done.

Thanks for commenting!

Just like you, I walk a dog who sniffs at everything on the way, I have tried running through the woods, but my wellies don't make it very easy. I will try this walking at home as what you say is true, a quick three minute walk can really get the brain working as well as the muscles, heart and lungs. Thank you for sharing this information.

Your story reminded me about my former days selling Alcoa Aluminum kitchen wares from door to door. A rough tough business with a lot of rejections. But one of the interesting points we had to mention in the sales pitch was the statistic that the average stay at home mom with 2.5 kids walks an average of five (5) miles a day taking care of household choirs. I was amazed at that statistic then and still am today. Oh, by the way, were most of the women thin? After walking 5 miles a day, you bet they were. Thanks for an interesting post.

Good point. Today's women, me included, spend a lot of time bound to a computer. We have to schedule in exercise. It doesn't just "happen" anymore.

I like your ideas. We actually adopted our dog, casey. I am the one who walks the dog. It forces me to get out and walk. I love it. I have a friend that lost 40lbs walking everyday for 40 minutes at a a comfy pace. She put on head phones and zoned out. It took her 6 months. She looks great. And the weight stays off because she did not do it over night and she doesn't starve herself.

Thanks alphagirl. I walk my dog, too, but she is so into sniffing out every little "treasure" along the way that it doesn't amount to meaningful exercise for me! LOL.

Good for your friend! That is quite an accomplishment to lose 40 pounds by taking a daily walk! Wow!

I have two of Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds videos and they are fun and easy (well not easy) but you sure get a great workout in only 30 minutes with her routines. Thanks for sharing, voted up.

You know, with the improved weather I haven't used my DVD in a while. Time to get it out and dust it off. :)
