Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Even in her late 50s, Kathy Smith is ripped. And Ageless with Kathy Smith: Staying Strong will help just about anyone get there too. As she has for 30 years, Smith encourages, teaches, coaxes, and congratulates--and before the viewer knows it, she's finished a very challenging 15-minute workout. Smith has organized Ageless with Kathy Smith: Staying Strong into four 15-minute workouts, focusing on arms, legs, core, and glutes, so you can do them all for a very advanced workout, or do just one or two to focus on certain areas. Because Smith is a fitness pro, she sneaks core exercises into all four workouts, resulting in short bursts of effective, targeted exercises that work on posture and overall well-being as well as the muscles in question. Smith is so upbeat that she encourages "just one more set" of reps in each area, and that's what will get results. Smith is also an advocate of "active recovery," through which one keeps moving muscles in between the harder efforts. Ageless with Kathy Smith: Staying Strong is aimed at older people who want to get strong and continue to build muscle mass and keep toned. The exercises can be tailored to any fitness level--as long as you commit to working out with some or all of these routines several times a week, you will start to see, and feel, results. The DVD also includes several additional features, including an interview with Smith, a 12-minute stretching segment, and a teaser to a workout led by skater Kristi Yamaguchi. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars BASIC DOWN-TO-EARTH STRENGTHING SEGMENTS April 3, 2011
Format:DVD
Kathy Smith provides a set of short workouts that can be combined together as an individual's need demands. She offers a lively pace, but it is quite adaptable for the beginner or less robust uses. It is a vigorous challenge for any male or female, but as stated it can be adapted easily. For instance, When the pace is faster than I could maintain, I simply did fewer movements, but stuck with the same action. If a particular movement was painful or difficult, as I have a bad left hip, I simple used a lighter movement in that spot. Most of the time, I kept up and worked up a sweat. That's good. The young and healthy user will find this challenging yet fun.

I'm 63 and still recovering from back surgery less than 6 months back. I've also had 2 heart attacks, the last 18 mo. ago. That proves this is a doable routine DVD set for all, but the younger and stronger and fitter people will surely easily maintain the pace that Kathy Smith offers. She is a peppy leader to follow, and her chat keeps the time lively as well. She is extremely encouraging to all participants, always suggesting smaller movements, or alternatives if her actions are too much for the day. Offers challenging add-ons for the very fittest exerciser.

Each of the 4 15-minute segments go quickly. Personally, I combined 2 then followed with the 12 minute stretching segment for a total of 42 minutes a day. A younger person likely could do all 4 segments followed by some stretching. The 4 options of arms, legs, glutes, and core are easily interchangeable and can be used in any order with a click of the remote.

The segments make use of a mat (I used the carpet), weights (Kathy used 5# & 8# while I only used 3#), cans of food also works, and the occasional use of a chair (I just used a dining table chair.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what the description says it is June 12, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd like to preface this with, I am a Kathy Smith fan, she is down to earth & motivating, without being hyper, or cutesy. This is a great video if you are already in great shape, like Kathy Smith is. I thought because this video is geared toward the aging crowd it would be suitable for the aging crowd. However, if you have injuries & or limited mobility like myself, this may be a tough video to follow. It is very fast paced. The weight lifting segments do not have modifications presented as an option as described in the product details. For instance, I can not do bent over rows, due to back issues, I was hoping she would provide a modification for this move, but unfortunately does not. I do not consider reducing the amount of weight as a modification or slowing down the move a modification, I would like body placement options as a modification. Core strengthening is mostly crunches on the floor, again, something I am not able to do, not only doctors orders, but physically painful. I am not putting this review up to debate others, I applaud those that can do this workout, I am just disappointed the item description was not what this video turned out to be, and hope to help others make an informed decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New View on Aging May 9, 2011
By OldSoul
Format:DVD
I've always been a fan of Kathy Smith, following her through the years as she helped layout each change in health and fitness of her generation. The variety of methods and topics throughout the years helped me stay fit and healthy as I aged. Now, Kathy brings a new attitude on aging. We no longer have to decay as we age. Instead, through strength training and a shift in mindset, aging is an active process, committing to a lifestyle of energy and health. We are no longer defined by our age; Kathy promotes an Ageless lifestyle. Just from the look of Kathy today, I wanted to see this DVD to possibly learn some of her secrets... Can you believe she's turning 60 this year?!

The DVD itself has a great set up for any age or level. With 4 different 15 minute workouts (Arms, Legs, Glutes, and Core), there is always different ways to workout, working as hard as you feel for that day. I like to do 2 of the workouts, switching up each day. On the days I feel particularly strong I'll try to complete 3. To end it all, I usually throw in the bonus stretching segment to help me cool down. There's plenty of content and its all very easy to customize.

The workouts themselves are very energetic and helpful. Kathy's brought her wonderful attitude of course, guiding you through each motion, offering tips to increase or decrease the lower of difficulty if you need to do so. Since the workouts are simple, all you need is a mat(or carpet) and some weights. As you adjust your difficulty level, you can control how heavy the weights you use are (I started with 3lbs, but now have moved up to using 5lbs).

1.0 out of 5 stars totally disappointed October 20, 2011
By joy
Format:DVD
First I want to start out by saying I have several Kathy Smith dvds so I am not a newcomer to her workouts. I was terribly disappointed in this dvd. I was under the impression this was geared toward a somewhat older crowd and this seems a lot harder to me than her younger year dvds. I'm 51 and consider myself pretty fit. I swim weekly and jog but I find this dvd challenging to say the least. It feels like she's racing through at times and not considering form or the breath. Very deceiving. It's almost as if she's just showing off, not impressed at all. This the one dvd I own that will sit and collect dust.
