I have been a athlete my entire life, then became a nurse and started working 12 hour night shift and became 400 pounds with sleep apnea. Over 12 years ago I lost the 200 pounds and have maintained it off by daily exercise and recording my intake. I recently had a collateral ligament sprain grade 2 and have been doing rehabilitation and looking for other videos that I could do while I am RICE'ing lol Rest Ice Compression Elevation of my joint. I decided to give this video a try, and was I pleasantly surprised, it did raise my heart rate and my depression !!! Thanks Nicole!
I work evening shift and I sit all night long. I usually go for walks but now it is getting colder I thought I would try this. EXCELLENT WORKOUT! My blood is pumping and I am ready for the last half of my shift! WOOT!

I did not think a chair routine could challenge me...boy was I wrong!
I've been doing this video for years in the early mornings when I don't have enough time or energy for a full-feet workout. Now I have a slight knee injury and I'm still using it, only more often. It's hard to get cardio without it. This and walking are about all I can do right now and it's still great. After my knee is better I'll continue to do it.
Those jumping jacks really felt great this morning. Was able to keep up with them, and they were great. Thanks again Nicole!!

This is a fantastic video!! I am trying to ween my hubby off the 8 minute arms and legs. He has been doing them for a few months. He is sensitive to shin splints so full blown cardio workouts are hard for him. Thank you so much!
Thank you Nicole! This is the first cardio I've done from a chair and I actually perspired!. It shows me how out of shape I am. I enjoyed it though and will put it on my trackers! I like when you put my attention on certain areas, also when you count and when you help me breathe. Sometimes I forget to breathe.
