Publisher's Summary

Losing weight has never been easier or more fun than with Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds. For over 25 years, Leslie has helped more women get off the couch and onto their feet than anyone else in the fitness industry. Her secret? If you can walk, you can achieve the weight-loss goals you dream about...with none of the intimidation or negative messages that have stopped you from succeeding before.

Whether you are a beginner or have been walking with Leslie for years, whether you are a teen or a senior or somewhere in between, you will see results. You will lose real weight, and keep it off; 20 pounds, 40, 60, or even more. All you need is 15 minutes a day for starters, two feet, and a willing attitude. There is no fancy equipment to buy, no fad diet to follow, and no fitness club to join.

The revolutionary program in Walk Away the Pounds is designed to keep everybody on the path to success, especially those who have never been able to complete a weight-loss plan before. It's a simpler approach to fitness, one that can change your life. Leslie's step-by-step workbook format sets up the program day by day. You'll get a combination of in-home walking (that's right, you can do it right from the comfort of your own living room!), simple strength training, motivational breakthroughs, and common sense advice to help you burn fat, tone muscle, reduce stress, avoid illness, shake off the blues, and boost your energy level sky high.

It's never been easier. Women all across America have dropped between 20 and 150 pounds with Leslie Sansone. Now you can too!

Critic Reviews

"Sansone's simple approach is refreshing....This nonthreatening, accessible exercise plan should be a boon for those who are reluctant or unable to practice more intense exercise." (Publishers Weekly)

Buy the Book Itself

I purchased this audio program and really enjoyed listening to it. However, after listening to it I also purchased the printed book. I like the printed version much better, it comes with a DVD workout (only 18 minutes but great) and walk logs.

A Great Place to Start

Overweight - aren't most of us??? Get off the couch & walk in the Kitchen, in the LivingRoom in the Basement. Walk anywhere with Leslie. I'm a 332 pound 60 year old woman who bought this audio, loaded it on my iPOD Shuffle & started walking last week. I surprised myself yesterday when I bounced down the 7 outside steps at work without touching the siderail or going down one step at a time like a kid. My knees weren't stiff & my right hip didn't give me hell. One week folks - one week!! I think I'm gonna pick up the 1 mile walk next. Nice thing about Leslie's walks is that you can do a short one, pick up where you left off or do the whole thing where ever you want to walk.

Good book

This is a good book to listen to along side Leslie’s workout videos. Lots of motivation and tips for starting the program. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to get fit by walking.

Great way to get fit

A fabulous start to the Leslie Sansone workouts. Find out how she started, what she thinks is key before starting walking, how to make walking a habit, other things you can introduce to your day to guarantee success and then a step by step guide to her 6 week beginners programme.

Leslie has DVDs you can buy, workouts on YouTube you can use, Facebook groups for support and an app you can find 25 years of workout programmes on. Her walking programmes can be done at home and are low impact and no floor work. This book is a great introduction to her and her programme and I'd highly recommend it. I've been using the programme for 3 weeks and it's been life changing.

Motivational

Really great, Leslie gives many wellness tips which you can dip into as you want and she encourages you to do lots of exercise walking! The audio doesn't have extras like the book so this is best for someone wanting lifestyle motivation on fitness who already walks with Leslie or plans to obtain a workout - see her walk style on you tube.
A nice chatty style, friendly.
