Leslie Sansone Walk Belt

By 

from USA, Indiana

Comments about Leslie Sansone Walk Belt:

I am a huge fan of Leslie Sansone Walk At Home workouts. I like to use the added boosters during some of the Walk At Home workouts. The one booster I do not like is the walking belt. The belt does not stay in place while walking. When I pull on the walk belt handles there is way too much slack. The belt is designed to tone the upper body which in my opinion it does not do.

I own several Walk At Home workout dvds that feature the Walk Belt. I choose not to use the Walk Belt during these particular workouts. I use light soft hand weights or stretch band to tone my upper body in place of the Walk Belt.

I notice during the workouts that feature the Walk Belt, Leslie Sansone and the walking cast fumble with the Walk Belt while trying to tuck the handles on the sides of the Walk Belt. Having to deal with the Walk Belt made me lose focus on the workout itself because I had to worry about taking the handles out the belt then tuck then in the belt after every use.

great at first !

Comments about Leslie Sansone Walk Belt:

I enjoyed using it with the videos up until it snapped. I tried to knot it together and the knot kept coming undone. I am disappointed that it didn't last very long before it broke and I certainly wouldn't buy another one to replace it based on the short length of time it lasted. I noticed it was made in China so probably the cheap materials the band was made from is a reason it lasted such a short time. I will stick with the stretchie bands and use wrist and ankle weights to increase resistance with the exercise videos.

Comments about Leslie Sansone Walk Belt:

What a dissapointment. My wife and I have been useing Leslie's videos daily with great results for over 2 years now. We use ankle and wrist weights, and the strechie bands so thought we would try the walk belts. They feel like they have almost no resistance at all. Maybe if you were new to these videos it might help, but not for long. I would recomend just using the weights and the strechie and use the money you would have spent on the walk belt on another one of her videos.

A good walk or dance booster for beginning or lax exercisers.

By 

from The heart of , NY

Comments about Leslie Sansone Walk Belt:

**Quick View** Leslie Sansone's add on workout accessories are usually good choices to boost workout intensity but the **Leslie Sansone Walk Belt** is a little quirky and only boosts workouts for those past the beginner stage a small amount. However, she has come out with new green bands with a heavier resistance which makes this belt much more versatile than when it was first introduced.

**Full View** This belt is made of black ribbed nylon and is about two inches wide. It's very long at four feet (48 inches) and has Velcro on the last 12 inches of each end of the belt to adjust to almost anyone's waist. A plastic loop holds two 13 inch (yellow or green) stretchy cords with padded horizontal handles at the end. You can snap off the stretch cords as well as the handles from the cord by just pressing the plastic buckles. The cords that came with my belt are the yellow ones which are just too easy to stretch and don't boost my workouts much at all but will boost beginners as they start out. I am going to order the green cords for a better workout. Either way, just hold onto the handles and move those arms as you walk or dance. Now you're getting an upper body workout as well as a lower body and cardio one. I am going to order the green cords for a better workout. **My Use** This belt came with Leslie's *Leslie Sansone Walk-N-Tone DVD* but can be purchased separately as well. The idea is to use the cords to work your upper body and abs while working your legs and lower body. Most walk or step workouts neglect the upper body, especially the abdominal muscles. Even dance workouts focus on the cardio and lower body aspects and leave the arms flailing and abs unengaged. This belt helps somewhat in that you will have resistance every time you stretch or move your arms. The resistance, however, is so slight that it's almost annoying with the yellow cords. The resistance can be felt but, as I said, I will be getting the medium resistance cords to really amp up my workouts and target my arms and core. Even with the light resistance the yellow bands provide, cardio workouts are boosted and the arms and abs do get some much needed attention. The belt is comfortable and stable and has never opened or caused any problems while I used it. I use the belt while doing the *Leslie Sansone Walk and Tone DVD* but also while doing other walk DVDs and, sometimes, when doing some dance ones. It's not too cumbersome and it's not too taxing and I do get some benefits from it especially if I am moving my arms a lot like during a dance workout. This belt can also be worn outdoors when you are walking or running.

**My Viewpoint**Beginning exercisers, especially walkers, will benefit from this walk belt. The resistance is light for the yellow and medium for the green cords and is enough to engage the arm and shoulder muscles and well as the abs and boost the benefits of a walk or other lower body workout. Because it is adjustable, almost anyone can wear this belt and, because the cords snap off, heavier resistance bands (or replacement ones if something should happen to the originals) can be snapped on. This is a simple, sturdy belt that engages arm, shoulder, and ab muscles and boosts heart rate while working out. It won't challenge longtime workout enthusiasts or those who lift weights but it wasn't made to. It was made to help boost workouts for the average, getting started walker and it does do that. I want to give this belt 3.5 stars because you will grow out of the light resistance bands quickly. I suggest that you just start with the green bands and do what you can until you are a little stronger rather than to buy the belt with the yellow light resistance bands. I wish I had a choice but I didn't. ***Since I can't do a 3.5 star rating, I will go down to a 3 star one.***

The Walk Belt is great for a scare!

By 

from Blue Earth, MN

Comments about Leslie Sansone Walk Belt:

I've used a handful of Leslie's work outs. I really enjoyed her Ab series, so I decided to purchase this belt. I had been using hand weights for the ab work outs. They worked fine but I thought the belt looked like a fun thing to try.

The first few times I used this belt I loved it. The resistance was a bit light but still gave a nice boost cardio wise. Which was perfect for me because I have a separate weight lifting work out that I use. I enjoyed this belt until about the 5th time I used it. I was half way through a 3 mile workout, enjoying great cardio with ab sculpting, when I heard a loud snap and it broke. The band (which I had checked for holes before every workout) had come apart by the handle.

I've always had that fear when using any type of resistance band. All my friends and family told me I was crazy and that all resistance bands were built for people much stronger than me. I guess I'm a lot stronger than I get credit for.

I haven't been brave enough to try another Walk Belt so I don't know if they are all cheaply made or if I simply had a faulty one. It was great while it lasted but that was only four workouts.
