Chair Dancing Fitness Essentials DVD Program
Good Product for People with Limitations
These DVDs were exactly what I was hoping for. I have disabling medical conditions, including fibromyalgia and arthritis, and I'm limited in how much I can exert and can't exercise while standing. These exercises are within my ability and are easy to follow. I feel like I'm getting benefit without hurting myself. It's especially helpful that they use "real people" with limitations and challenges to demonstrate the exercises and modifications. The only caution I would give is that even though it's "chair exercise", I'm not sure it's a good option for all people in wheelchairs. I had hoped to share the DVDs with a friend who is confined to a wheelchair, but the exercises require sitting forward in your chair and include a lot of leg movement, so I don't think they would be appropriate. But if you're a person who has balance issues or pain in your feet/back, this is the workout for you.
GREAT DVDS EXCELLENT WORK OUT!!!!!
These exercises are for all ages. Great work out and easy to follow steps. I never imagined how much one can accomplish by simply sitting down until I tried these. I just wanted something that could give me good core exercising without going to the gym and not having to deal with sitting on the floor. I don't need to loose any weight but being on my 50's I sure need to maintain a healthy body. These fit the bill . I enjoy all 3 of these DVDS, however my favorite one is the celebration party. Love the music ,the mambo and the Macarena and all the moves that go with them . Highly recommend these!!!!
Chair Dancing is the Best!
I purchased the Chair Dancing tapes to improve my overall fitness and they are fantastic and I can follow the exercises very easily! I feel better, more fit, stronger, and healthier. The tapes are fun, the music is great, and I really enjoy the exercise instructions. They are just the right pace for me and they really work! I never thought that I could get exercise while sitting in a chair, but I do now! You will feel better too if you give them a try. This is a perfect gift for everyone.
Recently had a bout with blood clots in my legs and therefore have not been able to to walk with my walking tapes and pretty confined to a sofa or chair. Unable to stand for any long periods and feel like I am getting weaker because of this. Got these tapes in hopes I can built up my strength or at least keep it was going down and these are great. I feel like I got a good exercise and feel like I am getting back in shape. Found myself able to stand and do the dishes without having to sit down every 5 minutes. Couldn't believe all the things I can do while sitting a chair. It was amazing how many exercises there are. Great program and I am so glad I made this purchase. It is very low impact which helps my back yet it does strengthen your core, arms and legs while sitting. Who could ask for more. Thanks QVC for offering these great DVDs.
Core Strength DVD
This series of exercise videos is fantastic! I weigh over 400 lbs and my mobility has been SEVERELY compromised. I couldn't stand or walk long enough to get through the grocery store.
I started using the Core Strengthening DVD about 2 months ago. I've lost almost 40 lbs between this DVD and exercising with an arm cycle. My stamina has increased. I'm able to get through the grocery store without using a scooter! I can clean my kitchen standing! I have a long way to go yet, but as I gain strength and stamina I'll be buying the aerobic DVD's for sure.
These DVD's aren't just for the elderly or those in a wheel chair. ANYONE that wants to increase their fitness and has some sort of mobility issue can benefit from them. If they'll work for me, they'll work for ANYONE!!!!
These are wonderful!!
If you are a couch potato and want to change and get moving, if you have arthritis or can't stand for long periods due to bad knees these are for you!!! You do all the expercises in a chair. The music is calming and not crazy. I am SO glad that I purchased these. I feel a ray of hope that I can regain back some physical "shape" before it's too late!
I have vertigo and I can do this!!
great for those with limited movement! I have no sense of balance due to vertigo. I can't move around much without falling. So I can't do most workouts. This I can do!
AMAZING WORKOUT WHILE SITTING!!
My doctor wants me to do aerobic exercise, but I am unable to do "regular" (standing) aerobics... and I wasn't sure if I'd ever find something I could do. But then I saw these chair dancing dvds on QVC, and gave'em a try. Well... I can't stop smiling!!! These dvds provide an amazing and excellent workout for all exercise levels-- and you're sitting!! I had a fun and great workout without straining my knees, legs or back! And they can be done by children, teens, young adults, adults, and seniors!! Great all around!
I have had this DVD set for only a week but really love them. I have bad knees and from time to time they flare up and I can't work out. I can do these without having to worry about hurting my knees. It is amazing how much sitting in a chair can give you a workout. Since I am already exercising I can increase the pounds of my handweights and still get a good workout. I like aerobic DVD I didn't think I could get my heart rate up without being on my feet.
Exercise program anyone can do
These DVDs are great for people with disabilities. I go to a fitness center twice a week and use these programs on the days I don't go. I feel safe because I can sit in a chair to do these exercises.
I can do this!!!
I have only had this chair fitness for a few days,but I love it>i AM STARTING OUT SLOW BUT I really feel challenged by it.I am 65 years old with bad knees,this is so perfect for me I look forward to doing it,so glad they use several people at different fitness levels..Very happy with this purchase!!!!!
I have severe RA which limits my ability to exercise, but exercise does help with the symptoms...definitely a puzzle. I am able to do the stretching and aerobics videos and I am surprised that I work up a sweat doing aerobics in a chair. The stretching video has improved my shoulders' range of motion. If you have anything limiting your ability to do "normal" aerobics, you would be well served by this set!
