All you need is a resistance band and a chair to perform this seated workout!
Thanks! I was able to fit this into my day. I found the video was fast and effective way to exercise .
These seem easy at first but I can really feel my muscles working against the band!
some parts were hard but I did it!
Thanks Coach Nicole! Great one for me.
I had plantar faciitis very bad once to the point of using crutches to move--it was very painful to walk on the foot/leg affected and could only do so by limping. At the time, I searched through my exercise dvd stash and found a couple of "chair" exercise routines which I used and they kept me from gaining weight--as well as speeding my recovery. This video would be perfect for that scenario because I could do exercise with the affected foot/leg--I just couldn't put my body weight on it while exercising.
I thought 20 minutes was going to be long. But this was a nice w/o. Thankyou!
have done this video twice now. love it, feel great afterward.
When I first found Spark this was a diabetes challenge video.
I loved it and my A1c lowered to the point I could get off Metformin.
I am back to it again and now we have a smaller place to do it in it still my favorite.
I am marking on the calendar for another month to see where my numbers go. I never weigh myself but I might try it again. I am clothes size 16 from 22.Thanks to you coach Nicole.
I am determined to do it again. Pat in Maine
I can see the exercises but I'm deaf and can not hear... is there closed captions..?
Great exercises. MS
I love that I ran into this video for at one time ,my dream was to have my own gym. I'd purchased a house that would let me turn my patio into my own gym. In a blink of a eye I lost everything and while going through my stuff found my resistance bands in a bag. I'm trying to get back into a routine and the video helps
This is a workout I can do, especially on days that my back is bothering me. I like how Nicole shows how to increase or decrease resistance.
I really enjoy these chair exercises with my respiratory and back problem its help a lot and with my change of diet wow what a deference. Its help with my weight and confidence in knowing I can and want to do this.THANK YOU !

This was a great exercise video for me. I did not have to modify it due to my stroke a month ago. I was pleased with that. I still need to work on my breathing. But it was a good work out.
if you go to YouTube and type in SparkPeople you will find the same videos and you should be able to download if you get the free YTD Video Downloader.
just FYI - since I am limited in how much bandwidth I can use, I like to download to my computer too.
