I am looking for calorie's burned for Leslie Sansones DVD'S. I do not have a HMR and want to be as accurate as I can. I don't know how fast we walk so really not sure how to input it in.
DVD'S are:
1 Mile Easy Walk
2 Mile Brisk Walk
3 Mile
Walk and Kick
5 Workouts on 1 DVD

You know how far you are walking, pay attention to how long it takes. That will give you an average speed to enter into MFP.

I think you could base it on aerobics and the level you exert. I mean, I can do the 1 mile walk and barely lift my knees, or I can really make it a workout. So, I would log it as aerobics for so many minutes at whatever level YOU put into it.

I go by minutes and low impact aerobics to calculate burn. I

Before I had my HRM I entered it in as "low impact" Aerobics. I have the 5 mile walk DVD and your not jus walking your kicking, punching, knee lifts etc. So.. I considered it a LOW impact aerobics. Now if you do her boost at the end of the walk for the 2 minutes consider that HIGH impact aerobics

For the 1, 2, and 3 mile walks, the average speed is 4.0 mph. That is what I use when logging my workouts. I log Walk and Kick as 5.0 mph, because it is a little more intense. I have a HRM. I weigh 216 lbs and my calories burned for these workouts range from 130 to 450 calories, depending on how much I push myself.

I don't have a HRM either so I just check my heart rate at various times during the workout, take an average of those values and then plug that in to one of the many calorie calculators that are available on the internet.

I am a big fan of hers and do her workout DVD's twice a day. I have 8 in my collection right now and really love the faster paced miles that add jogging at the end. There is a definite difference in intensity between her different routines. Some really get your HR up and others not as much but focus on toning with added props (stretchy band, weights, etc). On her website she says that if you do a regular workout without a boost (she considers a boost adding a prop or one of the intense walks with the jogging boost) you burn at least 100 calories a mile. If you do a mile with a boost she estimates 125-150. Of course, everyone is different so to get the most accurate calorie estimate I can I use a HRM now but in the beginning I did it based on the low end of her estimates.
