"My mom who is over 70 and I (age 50) tried out this DVD with the aim to become more flexible because we were both so out-of-shape. WOW! May I again say WOW! Not only could we both do most all of the stretches, but we began to see results within only a few sessions! Plus, it's a great de-stresser! Flexibility and strength continue to grow as we have committed to continue this indefinitely. We have become confident enough to even add aerobics... You can pick your present physical condition and start with only one of the several 10-minute routines. Who doesn't haven't 10 minutes a day? The leader makes it easy and is quite encouraging. I am so very pleased! Try it for yourself. No matter how long it's been since you exercised, you can start with this DVD and then later use it as a warm-up or cool-down. With the emphasis on weight-training and aerobics, we must not forget to stretch for flexibility!"
A good variety

"Most of my life I have worked out, and yes, it can become boring predictable and monotonous.Here is a good, short variety, one for each day of the week, so you dont feel guilty about not working out. Choose your workout for the day, depending on your mood or need, moderate to intense stretching and stress-relieving. I use this program as an alternate to my usual lengthy workout when I am traveling. All you really need is a chair,a wall, and yourself! Very well explained, the instructor is very down to earth and connects well as a partner in exercise. Just enough yoga and stretching to get you feeling as if you had done a full workout."
Do the stretchy.......

"This really is a "perfect" stretch DVD. The instructor knows of what she speaks and there is nothing pompous or irritating about her or the workouts. The entire DVD is focused and calming. I like to do these stretches in the afternoon because my energy level is lower.... A perfect warm up or just by itself. I don't think you have to look any further to find a wonderful, intelligent stretch routine....Thanks, I appreciate it !!"
Perfect for me

"I know I need to stretch. My body tells me so from the aches in my neck and shoulders, to the pains in my hips, knees, and feet. Most stretches rely on yoga-type poses. I don't really like yoga. I just wanted good, basic athletic type stretches that I could work into, and not have to feel like a pretzel or have some mystical experience.
This DVD was for me. The are five 10 minute segments, so you can do as little as 10 minutes, or more if needed:
Upper Body, Back & Hips (my personal favorite all over stretch)
Hips and legs (another good one for runners & walkers)
Sedentary lifestyle (for those stuck behind a computer, or with neck and upper back issues)
Sports Stretch (designed for golfers or racquet sports players. I like it since I have shoulder and carpal tunnel issues)
Intense Stretch which is, you guessed it, based on yoga.
Annette Fletcher cues well, encourages deep breathing, and "letting the stretch happen." She has a pleasant voice and is not annoying or screeching (Denise Austin). My flexibility has improved and so have the pains in my hips and knees. You don't think this is doing that much for you, until you stop doing it!
I use this DVD after more strenuous workouts, after my 3 mile brisk walk, or when my neck and shoulders feel tight after a crappy day at work and I just need to unwind myself before I curl into a little ball of stress.
I have given this DVD as gifts to others who also need a good basic stretch program. I highly recommend this DVD and instructor, especially if you are not a yogini."
