Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Premium, Senior Exercise DVD System: 5 DVDs + Resistance Band + Balance Exercises + Nutrition Guide + More. All Exercise for Seniors are Shown Both Standing and Seated in Chair Exercise You Will Love!
This is a great and fun set of dvds that really give me a good workout. I have bad knees, so I have to avoid impact exercises. I wasn't sure how challenging a seated workout would be, but it really was! Even though I have been regularly walking 2 to 4 miles a day, and doing some strength training, yoga, and modified pilates a couple times a week, there were some sets on the Simply Seated and the Strength dvds that I couldn't complete. Of course, that's good for two reasons: it shows where I am weak and need work, and it also lets me monitor improvement by eventually getting through the entire workout. Another thing I really love about Curtis's workouts is that they include balance and coordination, which can help to prevent falls. Curtis is a good instructor and makes the workouts fun. There is a four-week chart that lays out a suggested exercise schedule, which I found useful. The nutrition guides were ok - basic stuff, but ok for a quick review. The resistance band seems adequate for the exercises presented. Overall, one of the best exercise sets for seniors or people with bad knees or backs. I even bought some of the single dvds for other members in my family. Highly recommended!
I purchased this to get my body in shape. When the weather has been windy I can not go for walks. This exercise CDs is for Seniors. Sometimes I have to sit while exercising. The CDs have seniors sitting and standing. There are different programs for balance, with the bands, and strength training. I feel it was a good investment.
I have arthritis, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis and degenerative disk disease. I’m 60 years old and I thought this program was going to be easy. Let me tell you that the ladies on this video KICK BUTT!!! You will definitely feel that you had a good workout the next day but it doesn’t aggravate any of my conditions. The instructor is highly motivating. In the last year my body has gone downhill so badly and I think it was from having so many cortisone injections. I have ALOT of videos that I used to love but can no longer do. This program is going to help me get my strength back because it’s not only doable but very effective. This was definitely a good purchase for me and I’m so glad I decided to take a chance on it!!!
