Good For The Aches and Pains

"For several years I have been using the VHS form of this exercise program for arthritis sufferers. It works. It is a basically gentle, sit or stand set that is enjoyable to watch and do, and helps to loosen the arthritic areas and keep you more limber. I have been looking for a DVD version for some time
now here it is."
BEEN USING THIS FOR YEARS!

"I, too, have been using my VHS version of EXERCISE CAN BEAT ARTHRITIS and it keeps me moving. I have OsteoArthritis, Fibromyalgia and Crohn's Disease so finding an exercise tape that I can move to without pain isn't easy. This one fits the bill! I work at my own pace not some over anxious, 100 pound, skin and bone instructor who hasn't seen 21 yet. Yes, the British accent can get a bit annoying at times but after a while I just turn the volume off and put my own music on. I do that for any exercise tape I use and I keep my remote handy in case I mess up my routine and need the volume back.
There's nothing difficult about this DVD so if you're looking to be seriously challenged this one isn't for you. But for those who have painful joints, aching muscles or painful mid sections I highly recommend this DVD/VHS. Age makes no difference and you can hold back on days that movement is at it's worst for you. Just slow the pace down. I put my DVD on "slow motion". Works great on days when I can barely bend down to turn the machine on!"

"This exercise video has a few negatives that make me give it less than a favorable review:
2. Transitions are too quick and verbal cues too fast for an elder person with limited mobility and/or cognition to follow.
3. No adapted exercises shown or discussed.
4. Tested video with a group of 12 senior citizens with limited mobility due to arthritis and most did not like the speed or format of the exerise program."
This may help you IF...

"...you can stand the boring format and British accent of the woman speaking. I found this product too annoying to be able to fully reap any benefits."
