2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the seriously arthritic or elderly January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
I purchased this for my mom because she uses a walker, can't stand for very long and is generally weak. I thought if she could exercise while seated she could gain strength and increase her stamina and stability. This seemed like the perfect product. However, it was far too advanced and difficult for my mom. We tried to do it while the physical therapist was over and she thought it was ridiculous. She said this was not for anyone suffering from severe rheumatoid or osteo arthritis.
SO, if you are mildly arthritic, but generally strong and in good health and physically fit... Go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for inactive person to begin again April 26, 2013
By J
Verified Purchase
Because of chronic health issues including charcot feet I cannot "go for a walk" as pressure on my feet, a fall, any little thing can result in bone fractures that do not heal properly. I have tried using gym equipment and taking classes for people with arthritis but
have always triggered bursitis or some other painful reaction/injury. I found with "SIT & BE FIT" that I had some mild muscle soreness
in a couple of spots it was nothing serious. I was also using a 3# hand weight the first time which I put aside for the time being. I am
happy with this video as I believe it will keep me from doing too much too soon resulting in injury. For now, it is where I am and it is
a challenge.

My husband is not ambulatory. The video is a wonderful way for him to exercise in his wheelchair. The exercises are not particularly aerobic, but lots of good stretching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought for the Hand Exercises November 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I respect Mary Ann a lot. Her exercise programs look so simple but are surprisingly effective. She shows on our PBS station but they changed her time so I rarely see her now. She has several programs but I've always remembered this one because of the hand exercises. I have mostly MS and a little arthritis now.

I bought this program for her hand exercises (but do work the whole program). I have been unable to find the finger balls but I do the exercises without them and it still feels good. I am assuming that arthritis will spread throughout my body eventually so I'm ahead if I start exercising my whole body now with these exercises, right? I really enjoy her exercises.

My mother is 90 and has bad arthritis. She easily did the chair exercises and felt energized afterward. If you are a caregiver, buy this DVD! It provides good movements for the elderly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sit and Be Fit Arthritis Workout October 15, 2012
By MP
Verified Purchase
The exercise is ok, but it is slow in getting started, then there are interuptions with conversation. I think if they want to give advice from the American Arthritis foundation, it should be in the very beginning. Once I am exercising I don't want to stop... I found that it was not a good purchase for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed July 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
the format ruins the dvd. the intro is .a long conversation which my player would not allow me to fast forward. Each time I wanted to exercise I had to listen and wait for the blasted intro to end - hense the dvd sits at the bottom of my pile and I joined the Y!
