The Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles System enables you to walk your way to fitness without stepping outside your front door.
Being low-impact, the workouts are suitable for people of any age and fitness level who want to get into shape at home. They are also perfect for anyone who travels and wants to be able to exercise in their hotel room.
The workouts vary in length from 1 mile to 5 miles, with the foot, arm, and body movements differing to target a range of muscle groups. This diversity helps to allay boredom and ensures that along with burning calories, you will tone your entire body.
In this Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles System review, we will look at the workouts, the inclusions, buyer feedback, and more.
Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles System Overview
The Miracle Miles System contains everything you will need to lose weight and improve your physique. It is fronted by author and fitness expert Leslie Sansone who has specialized in walking workouts for over 30 years. The exercises are easy to follow along with, and they can be customized to suit the individual’s fitness level.
Though the moves are simple to do, they are very effective. While probably best suited to new and intermediate level exercisers, anyone who puts in the effort can benefit.
The walking pace varies throughout. You will also do cardio boosts during which time the speed and intensity increase further. For some of the moves, you will use a resistance band.
Everything is set to music with a beat that will help you to keep in time. There is also auto cueing, which can be turned off if desired.
Each workout includes a Warm-Up and a Cool-Down. A countdown timer on the screen displays your workout progress in minutes and seconds, so you always know how much longer there is to go.
Next, we will look at the 5 Miracle Miles System workouts.

Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles DVD Buyer Feedback – The Good, and The Bad
The overwhelming majority of purchasers have nothing but good things to say about the Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles 5 DVD Set. The consensus is that the workouts are enjoyable, and Leslie’s manner is friendly and uplifting.
Customers appreciate the program’s flexibility, which enables them to do the shorter workouts when they don’t have a lot of free time, and the longer ones when they do. Many who have undertaken it claim to have lost pounds and inches and toned up.
On the downside, one purchaser’s only complaint is that she thinks Leslie talks too much. To get around this, she silences the autocue. Another buyer doesn’t like the music. Many others left favorable comments about the music though, so this comes down to personal preference.
A couple of people received scratched DVDs so had to request a replacement.
One buyer said that the Cool-Down stretches at the end of some of the workouts should be longer.
Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles 5 Dvd Set Summary
The Leslie Sansone Miracle Miles 5 DVD Set is a simple to follow, low-impact fitness program that can be done just about anywhere. If you have a small amount of free space and a DVD player, you will be good to go.
