I had plantar faciitis very bad once to the point of using crutches to move--it was very painful to walk on the foot/leg affected and could only do so by limping. At the time, I searched through my exercise dvd stash and found a couple of "chair" exercise routines which I used and they kept me from gaining weight--as well as speeding my recovery. This video would be perfect for that scenario because I could do exercise with the affected foot/leg--I just couldn't put my body weight on it while exercising.
When I first found Spark this was a diabetes challenge video. I loved it and my A1c lowered to the point I could get off Metformin. I am back to it again and now we have a smaller place to do it in it still my favorite. I am marking on the calendar for another month to see where my numbers go. I never weigh myself but I might try it again. I am clothes size 16 from 22.Thanks to you coach Nicole.
I am determined to do it again. Pat in Maine

I love that I ran into this video for at one time ,my dream was to have my own gym. I'd purchased a house that would let me turn my patio into my own gym. In a blink of a eye I lost everything and while going through my stuff found my resistance bands in a bag. I'm trying to get back into a routine and the video helps
This is a workout I can do, especially on days that my back is bothering me. I like how Nicole shows how to increase or decrease resistance.
