"Very nice program. Chaptered and easy to use. Pleasant instructor who gives excellent instructions. You need to have a stability ball to use this DVD (but if you don't have one, get one--they're great!) This DVD makes doing your resistance training for osteoporosis prevention very easy to work into you exercise plan. My only slight complaint is that the music is a little odd, but it's very soft and easy to tune out. Good information on osteoporosis. Overall, a really good DVD."
I suppose it is useful, but it's as exciting as watching pai

"A recent dexa scan indicated that I need to worry about developing osteoporosis. Unfortunately, while I've been pretty good about doing cardio workouts, I've been extremely lax in the strength training department. Because this workout is designed specifically with the prevention of osteoporosis in mind, I figured I'd give it a try. If you are new to strength training, the instructor goes slowly and gives a lot of form pointers, which is helpful. However, the production values are so-so (she is in a bland, empty room and the sound echoes sometimes, plus she has a row of french doors behind her leading outside and whoever is operating the camera apparently doesn't know squat about white balance...) and the same music loop plays over and over and over and soon gets downright annoying. Bottom line, I didn't hate it, but I didn't enjoy it and don't feel particularly motivated to do it again."

"Product is not as described in advertising.
Advertises light weight training but is focused on severe body stretching using an exercise ball. Inappropriate for osteoporosis sufferers."
