Ordered by wife. I have severe asthma, polymyalgia rhuematica. (form of arthritis). It was easier to sit and not move because of pain. Of course, you then have more and bigger problems with walking, standing and you are just plain weak- sitting all day your muscles get weak very fast when not in use. I was crying because I couldn't even get out of a chair let alone walk a few feet with feeling like my legs would give out and the pain...I can't tell you how much I hurt. The doctor told me to start exercising and to take it slow. I was physically fit until age 70. When I was diagnose with PMR and asthma. I had to look for senior exercise as I'm 74 and can't bounce around anymore. I bought this exercise program because of the ratings. It s wonderful. Use this 5 to 6 days week. Alternating discs. I feel great. I can now get out of the chair with no assistance and walk further than I have in a long time. I almost feel like myself again. I recommend this to everyone 60 years and above (50's too) no need to jump around for exercise. Ann Pringle Burnell is awesome in leading the exercise. I have been using this for two weeks. What a difference in the way i feel and move. You get a total body workout sitting in a chair. I was so weak and now I'm getting stronger by the day. Do not hesitate to get "Stronger Seniors". My husband and friends notice the difference in the way I'm moving. I LOVE THIS EXERCISE PROGRAM. DO NOT HESITATE TO PURCHASE THIS.
