  • I have a spinal injury and I have just completed the 11 and 12 minute workout and I feel so energised and feeling muscles that I thought I can rebuild on...Big Thumbs Up!! - 9/15/2014 9:56:46 AM
  • I have fibromyalgia and this made sense for me. I am definitely going to continue this one. - 9/12/2014 10:37:57 PM
  • This was great for me as I have knee pain and can not do other cardio jumpy videos. Since it was my 1st time I stayed at low intensity, but plan to work up as I get better. It got my heart rate up enough to break a sweat. Thanks Nicole. - 9/8/2014 12:08:28 PM
  • It takes some coordination that I apparently do not possess to do some of those moves but if I stayed at the lowest intensity I could make it through the entire thing. I know that one day my leg muscles will be strong enough to do those kicks, that day is just not today. I'm going to keep at it. - 9/4/2014 11:58:49 AM
  • Loved this! I felt that I was actually getting some exercise even in sitting. - 8/29/2014 9:00:46 AM
  • good workout for me since I have arthritis in my knee, and still suffering the effects of a broken ankle. I do it in the library at school inbetween classes. I don't get too many crazy looks LOL - 8/27/2014 12:55:54 PM
  • Thank you, this is awesome. Since my leg break I can't do much weight bearing exercises. This really got my heart pumping and all without standing! It's so great to see a site that includes all. - 8/26/2014 9:19:10 PM

  • I remember this workout from when I had ankle surgery. It was a great workout, injury or not. I had forgotten about it since then, but I'm going to incorporate it into my playlist for my sedentary profession behind a desk to help me focus on short, beneficial full body workouts, with some moves I can do while seated during the day, without notice. Awesome!

    Thanks for bringing this one back. - 8/23/2014 6:47:41 PM
  • I got tired and had to stop but I hope I can find a place to save this so as I gain on it, I can do these. Thanks so much for putting this out for us that are challenged. :)
