  • I was really excited when I saw this but my glee quickly turned to despair. I am so uncoordinated and out of shape. I'm determined to continue to strengthen and hopefully improve moving 2 different parts of my body at the same time. Poor Hippocampus at work. - 7/21/2014 10:21:46 AM
  • Enjoyed the video. Great reminder to get as much movement into our day as possible. - 7/16/2014 12:45:33 AM
  • Great little workout that I can do in the middle of the day while catching up on emails. - 7/12/2014 12:28:45 PM
  • I am very uncoordinated. so I found some of these moves a bit difficult to do correctly, but I still did them. Having a pair of severely damaged knees there isn't a lot I can do for cardio, but this, at least for now, is something I *can* do! - 7/10/2014 9:29:39 PM
  • This was a perfect workout for me, due to bad back, knees and hips!!! - 7/10/2014 9:33:54 AM
  • Thanks for this. I needed this with not being able to do higher impact or standing types of cardio right now. This will be great for work too! Even if I only do 5 minutes of it, periodically and get things moving, loosen it up. I am going to incorporate this in my stretches or in place of one of my stretch breaks at work. - 7/6/2014 1:21:19 PM
  • Been having problems with both motivation and joint pain. Thank you for something that allows me to still work on my abs without getting on the floor or jumping around. - 7/1/2014 7:59:37 AM
  • I can't access any videos. Is there a problem there or here? I haven't had any computer difficulty today, except observing videos.

  • I came across this site a few days ago and started the 11 minute chair cardio and this is my 4 th day. I had stopped walking and was very tired and all I wanted to do was lay in bed. So I started doing the chair exercises and I'm starting to feel better and have the desire to do things around the house and I even started to walk. Thank you I'm going to try and do this everyday this is my first step if I can keep motivated I will try other things that you have on your site again thank you - 6/27/2014 11:31:37 PM
  • Also, any movement that sharply bends the base-of-toes joint gets very painful very fast--I will look through the rest of the videos to find something that will work for me. - 6/26/2014 12:13:26 PM
  • Just started watching this; noticed very quickly that the "zero impact" is false--smacking the floor w/ the balls of my ruined feet is guaranteed misery. This might work very well for my very big husband whose feet are OK but knees are shot--I will get him to try it. - 6/26/2014 12:04:39 PM
  • Great way to start the day! Easy to follow. - 6/26/2014 9:53:18 AM
  • This was great, there is not many exercises that I can do but this was a total workout and I can do it. I have tried other sitting ones but could not keep up or handle them. Great workout. - 6/25/2014 8:50:38 AM
  • *stopped :-) - 6/24/2014 8:58:57 PM
  • Loveddd this!!! I can't believe the intensity. I was NOT expecting that! It only stop to buffer once, & I used that as a much needed break. This is my second workout today. I'm onto my 3rd wooohoo!!! Stay encourage fellow sparks!!! - 6/24/2014 8:58:21 PM
