  • I did this in my office on coffee break. I did not expect to get so sweaty, and I'm sure my co-workers thought I was crazy... lol

    Perfect for small spaces!! - 1/18/2016 11:36:52 AM
  • Thanks for this workout. Good for exercising anywhere. I definitely did the low inmpact version. I can do this even when watching Tv or I've been sitting to long. - 1/13/2016 10:13:43 PM
  • I really enjoy Coach Nicoles demeaner, it makes working out seem ok. I have significant heart issues but need the exercise, so I am able to do the easier ways and feel ok about it. Cant wait to be allowed to do more :) - 1/2/2016 1:17:32 PM
  • What is the fascination with high-impact aerobics? - 12/31/2015 10:33:51 AM
  • I did 2 sets of this last Saturday & by the time the 1st set was done I was sweating (proper sweating) so deem it a simple (well I struggled a bit to not jump on my separation line :-)) but effective workout. - 12/8/2015 3:41:31 PM
  • `Good workout for the pool.....easier on knees and back. - 11/13/2015 3:26:02 PM
  • Great Attitude, Laura! Woohoo! - 10/17/2015 10:54:38 AM
  • I can't IMAGINE being fit enough to do this, let alone TALK through it, like Coach Nicole does. Instead I got on my new treadmill and walked it. When she picked up the pace I picked up mine. - 10/17/2015 10:53:51 AM
  • 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
