  • Kicking my butt!!! I tried this video two days ago, and gave up after 3 minutes. I searched again for 10 minute cardio videos today and this was the first one that popped up. At first I was like "Oh, no, not this one again." But then a moment later, I said, "Ok, i'm going to do the whole video at the modified low impact movements when I need to and someday I'll be able to do the video at the highest impact." Woohoo!! - 8/22/2015 8:11:40 PM
  • What good work out. Doesn't feel like 10 minutes, it seems much shorter. This is probably due to that fact that I see it as fun and achievable. Thanks. - 7/18/2015 9:16:34 AM
  • I had to use my walker to balance myself while doing the jumping. I had to to do the low impact version with the walker but it was a good work out. - 7/11/2015 11:25:33 PM
  • Hi - had to modify BIG time, but glad to be starting this series. Hopefully down the road, I will be able to do as designed :) - 7/9/2015 2:32:53 PM
  • How did you keep talking while jumping rope, I was trying to talk and couldn't. You are just amazing... - 6/9/2015 10:20:45 PM

  • I liked this workout. I did this after a 37 minute strength training and now I feel great. The only thing that I did not like, was, the sound went out. - 5/18/2015 9:58:16 AM
  • fun hard - 4/20/2015 11:47:49 PM
  • I am fairly new to these exercise videos and I really like the brevity and intensity of them. They allow you to squeeze in some real exercise during the course of a busy day. However I am sorry to say that I didn't finish this one because the sniffling was kind of annoying. - 4/2/2015 9:46:08 PM
  • I did as much as I could of this video, but had to keep low-intensity due to back pain today. I could feel the burn in my legs! (in a good way) - 4/2/2015 4:07:02 PM
  • great little work out - couldn't do most of it but tried the easiest options anyway. - 3/12/2015 9:11:32 AM
  • I can't find where to add this to my favorites. - 2/26/2015 8:11:59 PM
  • I thought I was starting to get in shape until I tried this video. It was very hard for me. I couldn't do any of the jumping front/back or sided/side. Every time I tried, I felt like my ankles were going to roll and break. I did modifications on almost all of it, and it still had me out of breath to the point where I thought I might pass out. I think I need to stick with some simpler videos first until I'm strong enough for this one. Kudos to those that can do this, especially without any modifications! - 2/24/2015 8:30:07 PM
  • This was a great start for me to get back into cardio. I hope to do this everyday and build by adding something new to it each week. - 2/23/2015 12:45:32 PM
