Tai chi videos are great also as they are geared for anyone no matter what the weight, age, flexibility, etc. Also, I think the Arthritis Foundation has a web page set up for range of motion exercises for people with arthritis, I'm not sure, but they are easy exercises set up for people who have arthritis & can be used for beginners of any exercise program as well. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis & got my ROM (range of motion) exercises from my doctor many, many years ago when I was first diagnosed & I still do them today, even if they are the only ones I do on some days.

Leslie Sansome has a 1 mile walk that's great for beginners. I'm sure I got it at Wal-mart. I've borrowed it to a few people to try because it's not challenging enough for me, but I'd reccommend it.

I had netflix or blockbuster and tried a lot of video's and just returned them and got new ones until I found what I liked.

Okay I am over 300lbs, and I had a hard time figuring out which videos would be the best for me. So I will share the ones that I purchased (I am beginner also). Walk away the pounds, I have 2 different ones. I think any of the Walk away the pounds videos would be okay, but the first 1 that I choose, was the 5 Day Slim down one, just because it is broken down into 5 different miles all focused on one body part, except for the first and last miles, 1st mile is just a classic walk, and the 5th mile is a speed walk. The reason I got this one, is because I thought it would be one that I could use for a while. I am only doing the classic walk right now, but hope to be able to do the others in the future. I also picked up Walk Away the Pounds Express, now I got it for the future not for starting out, since I think it is a little too much for me right now. I also have the Biggest Loser Yoga one, that was recently reviewed here, it didn't get a great review but, some of the comments left on that review is what prompted me to buy it. Now,There is floor exercise on this one, so I am not sure how soon I will be able to do a lot of it, but it does look like it would be great for me (a beginner). I also have the Sweatin to the Oldies set. And I think anything done by Richard Simmons would be okay, if you can find them. So far that is all that I have been able to find that are ones that I would think I would be able to do. It is hard when you are larger find a large people friendly Exercise Video. I hope this helps you out a little.

I second the opinion on Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds videos. They're very simple to follow and as easy as walking.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

I used a yoga for weight loss DVD. It's by 10 minute solutions. It's no impact, but still gives a very good workout. It's also very good for helping sore/stiff joints and back problems.

I have back and knee problems so I do very low impact or no impact things.

Maybe look into Leslie Sansone's 2 Mile Walk video.

By the way, I'm not 300+, but my mom is 280lbs-ish and will be having a double knee replacement in May, and she has enjoyed this video and some of Sansone's other videos.

Height: 5'10

Starting weight - 174lbs
Goal weight - 159lbs

Obstacles to weight loss:
1) Fear of failure
2) Lack of time
3) Sugar addiction

Hi Everyone,

I have RSimmon's Sweatin to the Oldies. If any of you have personal recommendation for any other Workout Videos, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE 300LBS OR MORE, could you please post a reply?

I will modify the portions I can't do, but if possible I would like to avoid getting up and down off the floor; and, would like to avoid knee impact (like no lunges) and knee twisting, etc. Something geared for MORBIDLY OBESE / LARGER PERSONS who are beginners, please; is there anything out there like that? I know this is the place to ask!
