Movie Reviews

What is in this video.
Carl Weis | NY | 05/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Description of video by Producer. Zookinesis is an ancient Chinese system of mild exercise designed to bring youthful vitality back to the body. This DVD provides exercises from a seated position, specifically designed for seniors. It works on all parts of the body, restoring muscle tone and strength, joint strength and flexibility as well as improved breathing and concentration.
These exercises also keep the connective tissue flexible so it doesn't shrink and constrict the body's organs. Connective tissue surrounds all the organs and bones, forming a springy network to keep the body young. As you age, the shrinking of this tissue can hinder the function of those organs, unless you do an exercise like Zookinesis.
Zookinesis is related to Tai-chi, Chi-Gung and Chinese Yoga. You can do the entire session or just fifteen minutes at a time. The DVD is 45 minutes."
An Exercise Program That Leaves You Feeling Good

"I didn't have high expectations of a seated exercise program. How vigorous could it be? More importantly, how helpful would it be? But physical problems prevent me from standard exercise, and the home exercises given me by medical professionals are repetitious, leaving me easily distracted. I wanted to try something guided, yet right for me.

Bob Klein's Chair Exercises for Seniors is excellent. The few exercises he demonstrates which I am unable to do because of my conditions are easily modified to be doable for me. I feel relaxed, strengthened, and at peace after going through this DVD routine. Just watching it, it does seem it would too mild to be helpful. But go along with it and do the exercises; you will be amazed how good you feel.

I recommend this DVD for anyone who has trouble doing exercise routines that require standing or lying on the floor, especially if you don't have easy access to a swim pool for water exercises, but you still want to stay flexible and have reduced pain."

"I wanted to get back into exercising. It is very difficult to find wheelchair exercises on DVD. Amazon had several of them and since I've been doing them I am alot less fatiguied and stronger."
