Starling Fitness DVD: Swami’s Beach Walk 2007

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

I have just completed my best walking video EVER. It is an hour and a half long, so it will last you through your longest workout. The day was absolutely perfect, so the sky was beautiful, the people were friendly and the filming was clear and steady.

I always felt embarrassed a little bit by the Swami’s Beach video that I did last year. It was filmed with an inferior camera and it was one of the first videos I finished. It has been hands down the best seller, but I cringed whenever I sent it out. This year’s Swami’s Beach Walk is the culmination of all that I have learned and gorgeous kismet during filming.

Here is a glimpse of what the video looks like:

I wore my Nike+iPod while I did this walk. It logged a total of 4.5 miles, but I’m more willing to believe the Google Maps measurement:

Estimated Distance: 3.31 miles
Estimated Speed: 2.2 mph
Time: 90 minutes

I’m offering this workout DVD for $5 plus shipping.

Video Description:

You’ve walked this beach before, but today is different. The people are friendlier, the sky is bluer and the tide is higher. The tide is so high, it blocks the way of your usual route, so this time you head south. Pass the joggers and the kiddie beach. The wind, helicopters and jet engines cannot drown out the sound of the ocean.

Feel the cold water as the tide nips at your feet. Run away from it like the little white birds. The water in the air smells like sprinklers on a hot day. Pant your way up the stairs and bid the ocean one final goodbye before you end your workout.

    Terrific! I love the location. The pace is perfect. I also appreciate the fact that I can choose the duration (great feature for people with hectic schedules).

  3. Chuck Catalano Says:

    Great videos!

    I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who uses a treadmill, stepper etc.

    Working out while watching these videos makes a huge difference and makes the time seem to go by so much more quickly!

    Hopefully Laura and crew will be able someday to produce DVD “virtual walks” in some other scenic locales as well, especially NYC’s Central Park and Greenwich Village and maybe even some locations in Spain such as Madrid, gorgeous Alicante and Andalusia!

    These videos set the scene for a nice natural walk without leaving home and the details make it even more real and fun to walk, ride or step. I certainly hope Laura will continue to make others, I would love to see a countryside trail,also another one made in autumn somewhere the true beauty can truly be appreciated, just as she’s able to capture the naural greenry of the locations she’s already produce,a park would be excellent as well, the sights ,sounds and scenery are breathtaking of the ones I’ve viewed so far.I see these as virtual walking tours with lots to see.

    As primary caregiver for a 92-year-old parent on dialysis, as well as secondary caregiver for an aunt with Parkinson’s, finding time to get out for a real walk is virtually impossible. I love the beach, but have not been able to get there for the past five summers and my nerves are shot. I guess I should say my nerves were shot because I’m feeling a lot better after trekking by the waves with Laura’s Swami Beach Walk DVD. Somehow, I can allow myself to be “sucked into the TV screen” and I’m no longer trapped inside my house. Swami and RiverWalk have been godsends for me. My stress level is still high, but I’m no longer “bouncing off walls.” Thanks, Laura!
