  • This is a nice doable workout. Thank you for creating/leading it for us. I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the length of time; just right for those of us struggling to get going with a good program. Thanks again! - 9/17/2015 12:02:52 AM

  • Please help. I can't view this video. What am I doing wrong? It just keeps displaying the cpr ad and won't play. - 9/14/2015 11:57:03 PM
  • Glad to find this as I was having a hard time finding something I could do while I try to get into some sort of shape. This video challenged this fat grandma but I didn't injure myself either. I think I will do this one or two times day until I can do a regular cardio workout. - 9/6/2015 10:02:19 AM
  • I started with this exercise when I first began Spark People. I love this as it's something that I can do. Also try the other seated exercises. The seated core one is also great. It's something that I can do. Thanks for this. Perhaps some time more of these can be created to avoid getting bored with the same ones over and over. Don't want to sound ungrateful, as I'm so glad that I can finally participate. Many thanks. - 8/31/2015 9:56:14 AM
