90-Day Leslie Sansone Workout Challenge

I’m about to embark on something that is either going to change my life or cause my head to explode.

Shortly after starting this blog, I wrote a post about my favorite Leslie Sansone workouts. As I was going through my pile of DVDs, I realized I have accumulated A LOT of Leslie Sansone workouts over the past ten years or so.

Some of them I love and have fond memories of. Some of them I hated. Some of them I’ve never done.

I have a love/hate relationship with Leslie Sansone workouts. When I haven’t worked out in a really long time, I can do one of her 30-minute workouts, get through it well enough, and end the workout feeling a sense of accomplishment. Also, I really, really appreciate that the moves are basic and don’t take any dance skill or coordination (which I have little of).

On the other hand, Leslie has one of those personalities you can only take so much of. (Clarification: “I” can only take so much of. “You” may have a different reaction to her.)

On good days, I appreciate her light banter and giggles. On days when I’m feeling frustrated and agitated, I just want to mute the volume on my TV.

So, I got to thinking about all these workouts and I decided to do a Leslie Sansone workout challenge. Originally, the idea was to just do 30 days. Then I was going to do 45 days. Finally, I settled on 90 days. Why?

Over the years, Leslie has put dozens and dozens of workout DVDs. (If you want to see an extensive list, I’ll include on at the end of this post.) I think I could get through 90 days and do a different workout for each day. Variety is going to keep things interesting.

I also like that her workouts range from 15-60 minutes long which adds to the variety. With so many options, I felt like I couldn’t do a Leslie Sansone workout challenge justice if I only did it for a few weeks.

Of course, the reality is, no matter what theme the workout has, I’ll be doing the same basic moves day in and day out. I may lose my mind because of this…

Also, the first week of August, I’m going to NYC for the BlogHer conference. I’d like to have lost more weight by then. I’m hoping do this challenge will be a fun, cool thing to do to help me lose weight and feel good about attending the conference.

I’ll also be doing a 30-minute treadmill workout each day and walking outside.

Every day, I’ll write a short blog post detailing my L.S workout.

Get into this challenge with me!

If you’re a Leslie Sansone fan and want to join in with me (you may just want to do 14 or 30 days), leave a comment below. We’ll do this together.

If you don’t want to do the challenge, or have no idea who Leslie Sansone is, I double-dare you to get up right now and do this 3-minute mini workout:

As promised, here’s the extensive list of L.S workouts: show

    Ok, I see why you want to mute her. LOL. I’d mute her too.

    I can’t sign up to do the videos with you, because I have none of her videos and because she makes me want to scream even in that 3 minute workout, but I can attempt to do some sort of video along with you. Maybe The Biggest Loser or P90X. Would that work? Let me know!

    Good luck!!!

      I have an idea. Give me a bit of time to get more fit. Then, let’s do some videos we will both enjoy. I’d love to tackle P90X or even Insanity. Maybe in the fall?

    I know this posting is dated back to April but I just wanted to share my story with any one who is willing to listen. In January I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. My starting weight was at about 180. After researching everything I had to learn about diabetes in general, I knew the best option for me was to exercise frequently, eat lower carbs, and lose weight. So this brings me to completely modifying my diet, then I remembered Leslie Sansone form the fitness channel on Comcast. I loved how it was easy when I did the 10 minute programs. So I went to Walmart looking to see if they carried her DVD`s. I was lucky to have found her walk off even more weight with the alb weighted belt. Let me say I love the belt. I started doing the workouts with 2 miles at first then as each moved on I would add on another 2 miles until I was finally walking 4 to 6 miles daily. As a result in combination of a modified diet and walking every day I lost 33 lbs. I feel great and my blood sugar improved tremendously. Now my A1C is down to 5.5 and fasting is in the 80-95 range. So in conclusion despite her giggles a,d quirky sense of humor I really enjoy her workouts.

      I enjoy her workouts as well. Beyond her approach, the reality is, her workouts are effective. In the end, that’s all that matters. Regarding getting your health on track, way to go! Sometimes people will go into a place of denial when they are diagnosed with something. You got proactive and made a change. I so, completely respect you for that.

    I love Leslie’s workouts – I have alot of her tapes and whenever I cant get to the gym I put in one of her tapes and I feel energized and much better after. She has alot of great videos and you can mute the sound if you feel she is annoying.. I like her so she doesnt bother, its the end results that count.. Good Luck on your weight loss journey.
