  • I hurt my ankle and can't walk right now. This is a great alternative and I really worked up a sweat considering I was sitting the whole time. I highly recommend - 8/19/2014 5:54:53 AM
  • Thank you very much! I have foot complaints so this is a wonderful way to exercise! - 8/19/2014 5:19:54 AM
  • This was great for me. After an elbow replacement and being traumatized from the fall (I am afraid of falling) this gave me a wonderful work out - 8/19/2014 3:57:34 AM
  • I have had a stroke and was having trouble finding a workout I can do. This was great. I could almost keep-up most of the time. There are some coordination issues but I did my best and really enjoyed it! Thank you

  • This is the first time I've seen a sit down aerobic session. I loved it! Since I have bad knees, this was really good for me. I can do it at work during lunch too! This is something I can use and can work. - 8/13/2014 9:54:16 PM
  • This is a great little workout for mid day when time is limited. Thanks Sparkpeople! - 8/9/2014 3:32:30 PM
  • Wow! Got a long, long, long way to go. - 8/6/2014 11:16:47 AM
  • Thanks to spark friends for suggesting this.. now I know there are work outs I can do and not be on my sore feet yay! - 7/30/2014 3:55:16 PM
  • This is great, like a lot I am not the most co-ordinated but it does allow me to get cardio in without craziness! Love it - 7/27/2014 1:41:51 PM

  • I was really excited when I saw this but my glee quickly turned to despair. I am so uncoordinated and out of shape. I'm determined to continue to strengthen and hopefully improve moving 2 different parts of my body at the same time. Poor Hippocampus at work. - 7/21/2014 10:21:46 AM
  • Enjoyed the video. Great reminder to get as much movement into our day as possible. - 7/16/2014 12:45:33 AM
  • Great little workout that I can do in the middle of the day while catching up on emails. - 7/12/2014 12:28:45 PM
  • I am very uncoordinated. so I found some of these moves a bit difficult to do correctly, but I still did them. Having a pair of severely damaged knees there isn't a lot I can do for cardio, but this, at least for now, is something I *can* do! - 7/10/2014 9:29:39 PM
