My abs were screaming!!! Report
For an older person with hip, joint, and balance issues, I found this difficult but fun and doable (for the most part!) Report
This is a very difficult workout for the older woman as I really feel it in my hip sockets. Take the moves nice and slowly and go for the lower impact version which will still yield great value. Report

I hear you on the connection issues. It is a great routine, but momentum can't help but lag when the video is continuously buffering, buffering, buffering... Report
Great routine! Report
Some fo these videos have a printable sheet giving a list of the exercises and how many. I wish they all did for those of us who have the worst wifi/4-g/no-net on the planet. Seriously this is the most painful thing to watch and I tried allowing it to load for 45 minutes and it still just sat there and fragged. Screw it I am gonna go ride my bike. Report
Awesome! Love these moves. Report
I'm really confused. The title says "No crunch workout" but the very first thing she does is a form of a crunch! ???? It doesn't go all the way to the floor, but it is still a crunch. Think it needs a new title. Report

I'm older, out of shape, obese etc. I found this work out to be just right for me. Challenging enough that it was hard, but doable. I like Coach Nicole's style. Thanks. Report
Wow! For us older ladies, that is quite challenging. I modified as much as I could (chair, bed, pillows under my knees). My goal will be just to get through all the 10 minutes and do as many reps as Coach Nicole does....again, WOW! :) Report
Did most of this... cannot do the hip flexors (or whatever it is called when you bring your leg out to the side while in a hand/knee position...)

This was a very challenging workout. I did have a very hard time doing it, although I did what I could. At one point, I was very frustrated and pulled out my ab roller. I did what I could of the crunchless core workout. Report
Nice is it on Youtube as well or just on SparkPeople? Report
