  • Have to start slow but it is a start. Thanks for the great article. - 1/29/2013 12:21:58 PM
  • Just what do you mean when you say stretch before or after exercise....
    Show me that part too - but this is super list and hope

  • This article says stretch before exercising and I seem to remember a Coach Nicole article on exercise mistakes and that's on her list of mistakes. - 3/29/2012 10:46:48 AM
  • Thanks! So glad I found this! I've just started working out again (very slowly) and this looks perfect to add to my routine! - 3/29/2012 9:54:40 AM
  • Thank you so much! This article gave me the strength to get started on a fitness routine. As I looked at each exercise in this article, I found myself saying "I can do that"... and tonight I am on day 4 and gaining momentum. I'd still have my fat butt planted on my couch if it weren't for this article. Thank you again for helping me start my journey to find the healthy woman inside me! - 6/1/2011 9:46:35 PM
  • Tanks, it really takes more than 15 minutes but it is worth a big way to try - 12/9/2010 10:23:00 AM
  • This is a great article, just what I needed. I have no equipment, but know how to improvise. This is a jump start I can do. - 10/10/2010 9:02:27 AM

    This is terrific - thanks! I needed to start adding some resistance/strength training to a very basic walking/jogging program I've started and this is perfect. Thanks! - 9/15/2010 1:32:32 PM
  • i think its more of a mind set really that will get them up off the couch and into some fitness routines. You have to set your mind to it. And you must keep reminding yourself of the goal you are working towards. - 9/15/2010 1:06:08 PM
  • I agree with the above comments since I am almost 68 and have health issues (osteoarthritis, bursitis, etc.) How about something for us "sexy senior citizens" we can put on our Fitness Tracker. I am just beginning and some of the exercises are WAY too much for me. - 9/15/2010 12:40:22 PM
  • I don't think push ups and situps are going to inspire people who have been couch bound for a time.

    And, as others have suggested, a Jump Start, for sparkpeople, for people with disabilites is a good idea.

    I have ehlers-danlos and grave disease, and therefore a type of fybromyalgia. I have issues with joints and connective tissue. I need a lot of isometric exercises. Plank position is weight bearing on the wrists and hands, this isn't so suitable for many people with joint issues. - 9/15/2010 11:43:50 AM
  • Wow! I love how it seems that i see these articles right when i need them. My exercise had been one hold for a few days due to visiting with family and i want to jump start my programme. I think this is just great and i will definately be using it. - 9/15/2010 9:39:08 AM
