Follow along with Liba Placek, the Egoscue Director of Athletics, and Brian Bradley, the Egoscue VP of Therapy Protocol, as they teach you powerful techniques to restore flexibility and strength, while at the same time, rejuvenating your body. The result is the elimination of muscular and skeletal pain. This workout is designed for those who do not exercise on a regular basis and can be acomplished by everyone regardless of age or ability! You will realize the added flexability and strength to help improve your posture and relieve pain. This 47 minute DVD includes one version of the workout in a similar format to other exercise DVD s. It also includes a bonus version that features the video with only the original music score and audible cues letting you know when to go to the next exercise. With no verbal instructions, you can enjoy your workout with only the beautiful, original musical score in the background. With Pain Free Workout, you will learn how easy it is to improve your body s alignment, strengthen important postural muscles and add the flexibility necessary to rid yourself of the pain that can make daily life a challenge.

I only wish I started this program earlier. I spent almost a year doing PT, visiting orthopedic surgeons/sport medicine specialists, and going through massages, acupuncture, and chiropractors. It was all palliative. This is eliminating my shoulder and hip pain, addressing the etiology. I am a medical professional with very physically demanding, ergonomically- stressful job. I was also exercising and doing yoga a lot.
Egoscue is a genius.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what you think July 26, 2009
Verified Purchase
While the egoscue program is a good one this DVD is NOT for everyone and definitly should NOT be used until an individual has achieved proper realignmnet. I give this DVD a 2 star because it implies you can achieve proper alignment using the exercises on this DVD when in fact you can not. Most of the exercises in the DVD are for building strength and flexibility once you have returned to proper alignment through the use of the exercises in the book or with a certified egoscue instructor. The exercises on the DVD are NOT the same as the ones in the book and can actually cause more pain if you are still out of alignment and use them as was the case with me. Sadly there is nothing in the editorial review or on the DVD package that tells you this.
This information regarding the DVD exercises was told to me by Michael Bellofatto from Egoscue.
Get the book FIRST and do those exercises first, that's where you need to start before spending money on this DVD!
The best would be if Egoscue would make a DVD of the exercises in the book so we all could learn how to do them correctly and help ourselves, for those of us who can't afford or don't have access to and Egoscue clinic or instructor. Plus exercising from a book is just darn awkward!

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful - But Production Values Low November 20, 2007
Verified Purchase
This DVD consists of a Beginner Level and an Advanced Level.

The Beginner level I can attest to as being wonderful in that right from the first session, the positions you learn and the exercises you practice are simple and easy yet they provide, each time, surprisingly more ease of pain and better postural alignment than you might ever hope to expect from any single session or effort. The pacing is calm and harmonious -- at least for the first half of the session, and it feels much like a one-on-one Pilates class or a Yoga session for beginners.

The Advanced Level I merely previewed. It is a much more intense level of exercise requiring a lot of strength and stamina, particularly in the abs, moreso than any Beginner level participant can expect to exhibit.

I got a lot of ease of pain and better postural alignment with the Beginner level, a level of ease that lasted for hours and sometimes the whole day. The results I achieved were astonishing, surprising, and wonderful.

The production values for this DVD are, sadly, weak and irritating, however.

In the Beginner level, two people help you with the program to become pain-free. One is a woman performing the exercises and the other is a male instructor explaining the exercises. About half-way through the session, the male instructor begins to talk more volubly than at the beginning and he begins to talk in more of a militaristic tone of voice than he did at the beginning. Increasingly, the voice becomes unadulteratedly louder and more robotic. The calming and harmonious experience one first experiences with this DVD and with this pair of people begins to dissipate rapidly. The male voice distracts and annoys.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Older the Better October 11, 2008
I have the DVD set and the book. I am 62, a retired Marine, and very fit. That means I can run over 3 miles, sprint, play soccer with 22 year olds, do lots of pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, etc. But because of my desk bound job, I think, I have developed a forward leaning slouching posture. I have noticed a difference within a week of using this series of beginning exercises. I am more aware of standing and sitting straight and my major postural muscles are putting me in a better position. The workout takes 45 minutes which is time consuming since I also want to do fitness training. The exercises are physically easy for me, so after I continue for 30 days, I will step up to the workout DVD, so I can get some fitness as well as posture/flexibility training. I believe that this kind of exercise would have been very beneficial much earlier in my life. Proper flexibility and attention to some completely ignored muscles should be part of everyone's exercise regimen along with strength and cardiovascular work. I am confident that nearly anybody can do these exercises. I plan to show them to my 86 year old dad, also a retired Marine, whose bending posture takes his head closer to the ground every year. I found the quality of the production to be more than adequate. Based on one of the reviews here, I was prepared for something substandard. I didn't see it that way. It is in color, with clear voice over background music. The presentation is informative with explanations to support demonstration of the exercises. Both presenters are pleasant to watch and listen to. The program is a single take without edits because they really aren't necessary. The dialogue is spontaneous rather than scripted. Highly recommended.
