Brings back a memory about the website I found once. It was a fitness platform that used whiteboard explainer videos as a way to show the progress you can make using their training program. Though it seemd a bit odd for me not to use real people, i found that idea pretty intereting.

On YOUTUBE, Tony Horton (P90X fame) has a 30 minute exercise routine posted of him working with 300+ pound man. If you don't trust the link, just search youtube for Tony Horton workouts.

If you also search on "plus size exercise", you'll find a bunch of workouts of varying levels of difficulty. Watch them and pick the ones that suit your fitness level. Leslie Sanson has posted her Walk Away the Pounds videos. You can do those for free. Those are great for beginners.

Some of the older Leslie Sansone Walk at Home/Walk Away the Pounds videos show a range of body sizes.

Spark People does have a video called, Yoga for Everybody. The thumbnail has a lady who isn't thin. I haven't looked at the video. I don't know what the instructor looks like.

Here I always thought the people in the videos were real.

I don't have a problem with them either. I like Coach Nicole. She seems to know her stuff.

I am fat, and I have no problem with the videos here!

I could only think to search plus sized person workouts on You Tube? Maybe there would be some on there?

Can I ask? What makes Spark People videos unfriendly to fat people?

I'm looking for some exercise videos with some "chubby" people. I am more motivated by seeing real-sized people do the exercises. Does anyone know of some YouTube videos that could help me. The SparkPeople videos are NOT fat-woman friendly! ;)

May peace follow in your footsteps.
