This is a decent enough DVD...more a fan of the ones by stronger senior....esp if you hate exercise like I do but you get to use most of your muscles wo being overtaxed. I have developed hip bursitis so my walks have been curtailed for the time being and needed something to do till I can start that up again. It is all stretching and mostly from a chair which I also prefer with the hip and some back issues. If you do this everyday I think you'd notice some changes in flexibility and movement. Just to use not very often not so much. I do about five days a week. I don't always do every segment either which is nice. Not a fan of all her unecessary hand movements and shots of the people doing the exercises, would rather see how she does them all the time. And I might remind people who think this is mostly for handicapped people that any time your muscles are being used you burn calories so yes this is all stretching but muscles are used. I've lost nine lbs with this and diet also of course recently so if you keep it up it does work. I might also suggest to people to watch exercise videos on YouTube before purchasing, many are on there so you get an idea of what you are getting

Mrs. McCrea is so gentle in leading this group of individuals through a series of effective excercises. Her admission that she suffered from MS gave me so much confidence. I have Stasis Dermatitis in both legs from the knees down. This has left them stiff and hard to move my joints. I also have Arthritis and my knees are not at all flexible. However, I feel that as I continue these gentle exercises, I will soon be able to do these moves. I am unable to walk and the doctors don't have a diagnosis. I believe these exercises will aid in my weight loss and perhaps even allow me to walk once more. I am familiar with many exercise videos, and this is the best one I have ever seen because I can feel the stretching in my body and know how good all this is for me.

Catharien McRay is wonderful as a fitness instructor! I thoroughly enjoyed working along with this video. Very thorough and the results? I just got over an auto accident, went soooo many times to the chiropractor and for what they called rehabilitative therapy that i could hardly stand it. Bought this DVD, started to work through it and found that within just days my tenderness, inflammation, swelling, soreness and difficult range-of-motion had gotten better. I'm on my way to "better" now, and I give the credit to this wonderfully therapeutic fitness routine.

I think the exercises are gentle enough for most seniors. They did not work for me. Arthritis, and fibromyalgia make the movements too painful for my use.
Great exercise DVD

I spend most of my life in special chairs, beds and wheel chairs. I needed something that would allow me to get necessary exercise and this is perfect.
