"I agree with the person who said she thought it would be an exercise program along the lines of Miriam Nelson's book - I thought so, too, but it is not the case. This may be a good exercise program for some but not for me. The first part is an aerobic warmup which includes a lot of jumping. The middle part is a workout with weights but includes a good number of lunges. As I already have bone issues and knee problems, I do not want to jump nor do lunges. The final section is some stretching and balance exercises. I will not be using this DVD. I thought this would be a good sometimes-alternative to a DVD I already use consistently, "Skeletal Fitness" by Mirabai Holland. I will stick with Mirabai's program which is EXCELLENT and covers all areas prone to fracture. I know with Mirabai's program that I am working to strengthen my bones but in a gentler, yet very effective way which uses weights, resistance and isometrics."
Not quite what I expected

"Miriam E. Nelson Ph. D: Strong Women - Osteoporosis Prevention
This was not what I had expect after having viewed the Strong Women Web site. I expected it to be more along the lines of the books weight lifting exercises, never the less the information is very good, exercise program excellent for beginners and does use weights, the program takes very little time out of your day and you feel you have achieved something when finished."
