Don't deprive yourself of fat

Low/High Impact

The high impact exercises on the DVD are to hard? Don't give up. In stead of jumping along with the instructor march with the knees high at you place and you still have a great workout. Instead of jumping jacks step rights and left and do the arm movements. Don't give up! You can do it!
