Any insight would be appreciated!
I get very disturbed when they don't count correct or say what number are we on and just keep on going.. Or they leave the other side out and nothing..

Read the Q cards instructors. Read instead of trying to engage in conversation with no one that can answer you.

and when i stream, it glitches, freezes and it's useless. All I want to do people is move and get the rest of the day going.. Not have to fiddle with electronics for 15 minutes.

yes they are different levels of resistance.

I don't have the prior resistance band but wished they had included a medium resistance. My experience with Heavy resistance is that I often can't use it and the Light resistance is too light. Why they jumped from light to heavy I don't understand.

I wonder if the original blue band was a medium. I'll compare when I get my set.

I was messing around with the blue band (from the Miracle Miles set) and it feels like pretty light resistance. It got me wondering if we could double up on the bands, for added tension. Especially for things like rows and bicep curls.

Amazon now sells multiple colored bands with the Miracle Miles set....blue, pink, yellow, etc. and I believe those are all the same resistance. It's possible the blue is not even the original one, but maybe of lesser quality from some of the reviews I'd read.

The original blue band feels similar to me to the new red band.

I got this set today and really like it. I love Leslie but I enjoy the variety of having some of her walk leaders lead workouts. I love Nick and I like Rocky, too. There are several familiar faces among the background exercisers: Marvin, Nikki, Tammy and Nick’s wife, Chelsea. On the first 2 workouts, the timer doesn’t start until after the warm up so the 20-minute walk is actually 24 minutes and the 30-minute walk is actually 33 minutes. I also love, love, love the fact that the run minutes are 160 bpm. Not many walks have music that fast and I like having some really brisk music once in awhile.

The only 2 negatives for me - the price was too high and you don’t get much variety with the bands unless you combine all 3 workouts and even then, you don’t get a lot.

I was glad to see that someone had posted a review! It seems like the reviews at QVC are mixed. The only thing that kept me from purchasing this set was the price, but if it had been a little less expensive, I would have pulled the trigger.

I really enjoy Leslie and miss not seeing her, but the others are okay every once in a while.

It's nice to hear that the walks are a bit faster, too! I have to work my way up to those quicker paced ones, with an easier mile first.

Thank you for your thoughts!
