Stretch your way to fitness for any age
There are many fitness DVDs out there, often purchase then find routine too hard, too boring,so interest is lost quickly. However I was pleasantly surprised with this one!
The instructor, Ms. Burnell has a pleasant encouraging approach. She often reminds you to do what feels good to your body. No pressure here just relaxing yet beneficial workout.
Since I had major surgery a year ago exercise has not been a priority. Have been afraid that I might strain a muscle. However, this is very gentle and since done in a chair, easier on your back. Modifications are offered as well for the more difficult moves.
After doing some light gardening my back was sore. Rested for awhile then did the stretching workout. Must say I actually felt better, could feel my sore muscles relax. Don't let the title Stronger Seniors scare you!
While not considered a senior myself yet, this routine is very good for those of us with back pain. Two discs are included. The second disc uses weights or do the movements without any if you choose. -Thanks Ms. Burnell for producing this gentle workout!- Vinny
GREAT DVD! FAST FAST Shipping! Would recommend to anyone!" -Susan K., Lemont Frnc PA
"Ms. Burnell does a great job of demonstrating and explaining the exercises. She often gives reminders to only do what you feel comfortable with. I've noticed when I do this video my blood sugar is better the next day. I am unsteady (balance issues) and use a walker, so the seated exercises are good for me. I really appreciate Ms. Burnell's calm and pleasant demeanor". Annie M., Hampton, VA
This is a complete blessing to me. God bless you for the work you're doing to help people who don't have a place in 'normal' fitness classes due to current strength for whatever reason - even for fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, being bedridden for any length of time, etc. Thanks to you (and the other ladies!) for putting together a great video! -Takeshi Yama
"So pleased I found this video, I have had problems with my back and have trouble standing and walking, this is helping me to be more mobile, also very enjoyable, 1/2 way through my 1st week (once a day) quite hard work, but improves each day. Thank you Anne." -Sheila Ramsey
"They are great videos for seniors. I have bad knees, but the videos are great to keep fit without stressing my knees." -Vee Gee Mc
"I got this for my 89 year old dad. We do the exercise together. He was inspired by all the elderly people in the video, it helped him through when he got discouraged." - Jane D
"These exercises are great. I'm in my sixties and my daughter who is in her thirties also enjoys doing this program. We do them every day. I would also recommend the Stronger Seniors Pilates exercises program as well." - Melonie Ann J
"Even though I am only 60 years old, I am overweight and hate exercising. Everyday felt like it brought a new pain when I woke up. A friend recommended these DVDs to me and I LOVE them.
Not only has my flexibility improved, but psychologically I feel so much better knowing I am doing something positive for my body. Well worth the investment of money, time and energy." Dolly, CA
“The Stronger Seniors Program encourages the exercisers to go slow, but to keep going. Just the right balance of activity and rest. The program helps seniors looking to improve their stamina, strength and balance.” - Kathleen M. Perry RN PhD Gerontology Nurse Specialist
“I represent a group of 25 to 35 senior women who meet twice a week to exercise to your videos. All agree that these videos have made a huge improvement in their overall health. Some have even reported their doctors have seen improvements in their test results.” Nancy Miller, 1st Presbyterian Church, Loudonville, OH
