I am going to donate this DVD to my mother-in-law's senior care home. I am 57 and fairly fit; bought this to work on flexibility but the exercises are not challenging enough for me and the pace is extremely slow. Also, the narrator's high-pitched "kindergarten teacher" voice drove me batty after about 5 minutes, although I'm sure some would find it soothing. I would recommend Essentrics instead for stretching & balance for those who want a little more of a challenge.
I am fairly fit (walk 30 to 40 min per day) and decided to expand my workout to include some balance activity. I ordered this CD and, after the intro, tried the first ti chi lesson, an easy 17 minute ti chi full body work out. Big mistake. The exercises were fairly easy but they fail to tell you "If you've never done this DO NOT keep up with the instructor the first few times" I did and although it was painless at the time today my elbow is totally messed up. Granted a younger person could have probably handled it OK but sorry graysters...take it real easy.
I think I would have liked this video except it wouldn't play after the first 5 minutes. It did not appear to be scratched but just wouldn't play. I put another video in which played just fine. Should I send it back?
