  • Just a black screen. Grrrrr!!! - 3/28/2014 1:27:32 PM
  • I really need to get this computer fixed. I'm getting a black screen, again. Will post on Community Guidelines for help, again. - 3/27/2014 9:45:52 PM
  • How about getting rid of the garbage commercial? - 3/27/2014 8:37:58 AM
  • Really like this one, it will be even better once I can listen and follow her instructions without constantly turning my neck to view screen. - 1/12/2014 10:16:03 AM
  • Very nice group of exercises. Headed to the gym now, and will try to incorporate some of them (or all, if I can remember) ;-) - 12/8/2013 12:44:15 PM
  • This was great. Just so relaxing and didn't feel like a chore. Need this because without stretching I start having a lot of pain in back and knees. I will start incorporating this into an afternoon revive time. Most videos were much harder with moves that I wasn't ready for. Thanks so much. - 10/9/2013 11:07:49 PM

  • this was much easier for me to do I am going to make this a part of my regular exercise. - 8/28/2013 9:39:48 AM
  • quick and easy to do.....i'm ready to try a harder one!!! - 8/15/2013 8:43:27 AM
  • I have tried three of the videos . Most were more advanced than I could handle. This one I can work with. Thanks. - 7/10/2013 1:02:48 PM
  • I have difficulty getting onto the floor and getting up again is nearly impossible as I can't kneel to haul myself back up. Are there any sitting exercises available? I'm able to do things like touching my toes, wall push ups and twist but then I'm stuck for ideas. - 7/5/2013 2:43:47 PM
  • I'd like to have some exercises I can do when I can't get down to the floor (or when I do, I an't get back up by myself). It looks there are some terrific exercises here. However, being obese makes it difficult to do the things I need to do, as a starter.

    Thanks,

  • Have to try it. - 6/18/2013 12:55:42 PM
  • It was a good starting point for me. My sister lives by pilates so I'm giving it a whirl. - 6/3/2013 6:11:08 AM
  • Wow...ok...just tried this...I have not been on the floor in soooooo long, but I did it!!!! I need to do this every day. I travel to work 45 min each way (90). when I get home I'm stiff. I believe that this will help me so that I won't be so sore. Thank you :) - 6/2/2013 7:39:49 PM
