If she likes/wants to try the Leslie Sansone videos, she doesn't have to do the kicks/side steps/any move that is uncomfortable for her. It's the "moving" that counts. Even if that is just marching around her living room.

Hi Tisten,

I think it's great that you want to help you mother-in-law, however, it is very difficult to offer specific exercise recommendations without being able to discuss her health history as well as do a full fitness assessment on her. My suggestion is for her to talk with her doctor and see what he/she has to say and maybe get a referral for a couple of sessions with a physical therapist.

Can she afford to see her doc and get a referral to a physical therapist? Medically supervised exercise would be helpful for her.
Water workouts sound like a great idea.

I am working on getting the mother in law active again, and she has a bad knee. She can walk but cant do leslie sansone because of the kicks/knee ups/side steps, but what else can I get her to do that wont scare her away? Our pool is almost ready so we will be swimming, but she is very overweight and I am super worried. Any low impact ideas would be greatly appreciated!!
