  • Wish we could still track these videoes on our fitness tracker automatically! I'm blind and the cues were not good. I wasn't sure what in and out meant and such! Think SP should update their 28 Day Home Workout challenge with videoes that can be tracked like from sparkpeple.tv! - 9/17/2016 7:30:17 PM
  • I can hear it, but I can't see it. Any suggestions? - 9/7/2016 12:19:02 PM
  • First of all there was no warm up. No warning as to the fitness level. I am not a novice, but I'm definitely not advanced either. This wasn't TOO bad (despite the lack of warm up?) But as it got faster and faster (understanding one can go at their own pace!) if you don't keep up - you lose out. If you don't do what they're doing ~*as* they're doing it. You lose out. I could not keep up. By the time it got to where they sit onto the floor, I gave up. Did I sweat and move? absolutely. Did I feel good at any point during this work out - Trying to think.. not really! I do like the instructor's energy and wish I could have kept up. I know with more practice things get easier, but this - definitely (Again) needs a warm up and also a fitness level warning of advanced on it. I will save it - to try again, but?? Wow, I don't think in my years of being on this site, I have ever had to stop a workout video before it ended.. sorry!! I enjoyed the instruction though? but definitely not the workout! - 9/7/2016 5:46:49 AM
  • Coach Nicole's exercise videos are probably the best on the Internet for people getting back to an exercise/diet routine, and definitely for people in their 60's... However, could you possibly limit the length of the beginning commercials - they are definitely too long. Thank you for this consideration. - 9/6/2016 3:36:19 PM
  • Pretty tough workout, especially for people who are just beginning or have a high BMI. I found it frustrating trying to figure out modifications. - 6/10/2016 1:40:23 PM
  • I liked this workout but thought it was pretty hard there were some parts I couldn't do very well if at all . I felt a bit sore directly afterwards I think its because I haven't used my dumbells in a while. - 5/31/2016 5:58:09 AM
  • Daaaaaang. That was crazy. I'm sweating!

    Definitely hard. I couldn't do any of it properly and it was really really fast. But I'm glad! This is one of those workouts you get better each time you do it. I like it this way because I can track my progress by how much better I get.

    Woohoo! - 5/26/2016 1:13:56 AM
  • That was intense. 17- Minute Barre Workout Day 17 - 5/24/2016 9:12:17 AM
  • I thought it was to fast. there was no warm up. I would not recommend this video to anyone just starting out trying to lose weight. - 5/2/2016 3:32:23 PM
  • OMG--I hated it! I had the volume as high as it could go, and could barely hear the instructions, which were often said much too fast to catch. I'll stay far away from any "Barre" workouts or any videos with this instructor. I hope this will be taken out of the 28-day challenge in future. - 2/20/2016 10:17:33 PM

  • I'm 78 years young (lol) and I am puffing but I feel good. I managed to follow fairly close to the three ladies in this video....but only for 15 minutes. I'll be back for more another day!

    Thanks much Spark people! - 2/19/2016 12:09:59 AM
  • Wow, this is excellent. Difficult for me now but this is one I can progress with given time. I love the controlled movement. Thanks for posting this! - 1/31/2016 9:56:24 AM
  • TABATHALEE, you can favorite videos by clicking on "More" and selecting the "Save" button. It took me awhile to figure that out too. - 1/26/2016 3:22:30 PM
  • Excellent core workout, thanks a bunch! - 1/23/2016 8:38:12 PM
  • Maybe I'm missing it, is there a way to favorite this video? - 12/16/2015 5:01:47 PM
