Beautiful Bali at Festival Time
To Potential Customers, the product description is accurate. I will add to it but try not to include too many "spoilers" so as not to ruin your experience, but this is my favorite daytime walk so far. The first Track - Lush Green Lane starts you off on a clear morning in front of a Balinese temple, I see the sign "Pura" which indicates this. The paved pathway meanders along the outskirts of this temple through green tropical foliage, blue skies, the sun is shining, some white puffy clouds but not much, and purple mountains majesty in the background as you seem to be going somewhat downhill. Track 2 Mountain Sea Views takes you on a cloudless blue sky day down a neat paved path where you may occasionally see the natives doing their daily tasks, some animals pop out, I won't spoil the surprise, but I really like the little dogs. You can see some of the residences which are decorated for, I think, the Balinese holiday of Galungan, with long bamboo poles called penjors arcing over the roadway, each house has one, it is so festive! Track 3 is a bit different, the roadway is gravel and the vegetation is smaller-leafed, the trek is long so make sure you have your water bottle! It ends with a special surprise! The 4th Track, Tropical Walk, takes you again on a paved path, blue skies, green lush large-leafed tropical foliage and palms. Again you will see the natives here and there doing their work harvesting bananas etc, but I don't want to give away all the surprise elements. 89 minutes of great walking footage. After exercising on the machine of your choice watching these tracks, you will feel happy and rejuvenated, the visuals plus the exercise should release endorphins for a most gratifying experience. There are natural sounds accompanying the video, but you can also play your own Zen music to add to your enjoyment. I highly recommend this one.

fitness journey tropical scenery
By sun angel
this DVD was absolutely beautiful; so peaceful both scenery and sounds. I actually was looking for a virtual bicycle DVD for excercise and this particular DVD did not have the speed that I would have liked but WOW it is so peaceful that I am glad I got it. There was an added benefit that I had not anticipated; my dog Max really chilled out when this DVD was running. He is usually very hyper and makes it difficult to concentrate on my exercise but he was enjoying the sights and sounds so much I actually got some of my yoga routine done without a Max attack.

a great journey
By Martha Wahlberg
I really love the fitness journey - Tropical Scenery. I have a DVD player attached to my treadmill and walk through the trails every day. I like the variety of paths to chose
from, and I like the option of hearing only nature sounds. I belong in the senior citizen group and enjoy seeing these trails which I can no longer walk along. It is a wonderful reminder of something I used to enjoy, but now enjoy in a different way. I walk slower than the camera moves, but it doesn't seem to matter. I also turn the volume up loud which puts a little static in the background - but not enough to be disturbing. I am not really a fan of too many electronic gizmos, but these DVDs are 100% outstanding. It is obvious that a lot of work went into making a quality product. Thank you for keeping alive the beauty of nature in my life.
