Unlike other reviewers at videofitness.com, I am not a dancer, nor am I very coordinated. I HATE to stumble over a video a few times to learn the steps. I just want a good work out without having to risk breaking my neck with complicated dance moves that require years of study with the American Ballet Theater to master them. That's why I like Leslie's DVDs. For a beginning exerciser there is no learning curve. You just get up and move. I also like that there are exercisers of all ages and body types working out with Leslie. The music is a little stodgy but I don't find it too distracting. The moves are very simple. If you can walk, march, lift your knees, and side step, you can do these tapes! Best of all, these tapes are very motivating. After doing these tapes for 4 weeks, I have lost 6 pounds and increased my confidence enough to try other tapes with (slightly) more difficult choreography. Overall, Leslie Sansone offers a great way to get started on an exercise program.
Leslie is great for beginning exercisers and the "choreographically challenged" like me. She's perky, supportive, and best of all, cues very well. My one complaint is that this woman has a very limited vocabulary. Leslie says everything is "nice, nice, nice." Someone get her a thesaurus please!
