11-Minute Chair Cardio Workout

Back to the Video

This started out as something for which I was reviewing for friends who can't really work out (or are chair bound). I have been doing this video (and added in the others - alternating days I do the second one - arms, abs, etc.) - they - are - *FANTASTIC* - I normally do Kundalini yoga and 'tai chi for weight loss' (based on tai chi but is a low impact cardio work out). I also do power walking and floor workouts/cardio/toning. in the TWO weeks that I have been doing THESE - I have lost nearly two inches and have definitely increased my cardio/fitness! They're short, challenging, but not so that they can't be done! I can see how they would be difficult for the beginner or someone who's not worked out in a while. JUST do what you can! Just do the 'top' workout (making sure your lower half is well situated and squared). Then gradually add in just a LITTLE bit of 'leg' - you don't need to add very much to give it an impact. Doing these practically daily has made a HUGE difference in my life! Thank you!!

I loved this video! I have been looking for a seniors low impact (arthritic knees, hips, back) cardio video to get me started on exercise. This was perfect.

I was determined that I was going to do some cardio on tonight. Well, I really found out how out of shape that I am. Did the complete work out but had to slow down sometimes but I did it. I know that it will get better.

This was awesome, she kicked my bootie in 11 minutes, I love it. I am 71 years old and have COPD, it's getting harder to exercise, so I stared doing the chair workouts, plus I still do my treadmill a few times a week too. Thanks so much, this was I will use a lot, just to get myself in a cardio state :)

I could really feel the cardio aspects of the workout, and there were quite a bit of movement options for a "seated" workout

I have terrible knees, so other workouts that are toted as "low impact" do not always work for me. These chair workouts are GREAT! I think doing these, along with my other resistance band training and eating right are hopefully going to help me drop enough weight that I can eventually do other exercise routines with comfort. PLEASE...continue to come up with more chair routines and/or standing exercise routines that have no impact on the knees! Thanks!

who boy, I'm not coordinated enough to do all that fancy stuff. It's like trying to rub your tummy and pat your head.

Never tried a seated cardio workout. Came across this one and it is more intense than I thought! Great workout.

Just did this while sitting at my desk at work! Loved it!

I use to do your chair video's all the time. All of a sudden my knees & legs are really bothering me. So I'm going to start back doing them again. I don't have a DVR Player, but
I can do them from my laptop. I hope everyone has a Blessed Day on the Lord's Day! Thank You Nicole!

I'm a permanent wheelchair user, with Spina Bifida. I'm constantly looking for fresh cardio ideas (especially during the winter months). This workout was awesome! Thanks so much!

This video was great for me since I have a bad knee, hip, and back. Trying to make some changes by dieting and exercising. Thank you!!

This workout was great for me. I added it to my favorites. It is the kind of workout I need because I walk with a walker and my balance isn't too good. Thank you.
