This book makes it easy.
Candace Mike N Elmo
The exercises seem especially good for people who are older or for those who are sitting for a good part of their day.

My wife asked for this book when her doctor told her about it.

An excellent book for anyone, regardless of age. The exercises are well thought out and clearly illustrated. Anyone can do them, and they work! People can't make excuses for not exercising any more. The exercises seem especially good for people who are older or for those who are sitting for a good part of their day. I can't believe the author, who is pictured doing the exercises is almost 50! She looks much younger, so I would guess that her routine works.

Get fit watching the TV news. Get fit on rainy days when you can't get out for your walk. Get fit sitting at a computer. (I'm going to do the "sitting at computer" exercises as soon as I finish writing this.) I borrowed the book from the library, and I am buying it.

I live in a special care home, with 10 other senior citizens. I, though, am 37 years old, but I suffer from a disease that interfers with my mobility. Yhis book does wonders for me, and is a book that the other resident her can us as well! Every month, we have a few excercise routines, and, what I've learned from the book, not only is it useful for me, but also for the other residents here! It's a really,really good book!

I am a parent of a 2 year old and needless to say I don't have alot of extra time to go to the gym for a work-out. This book allows me to exercise at a time and pace that fits into my daily routine. As most people I feel better when I get some exercise and this book has given me some great ideas on how to do just that. I borrowed this book to my sister who sits alot at her job and she also has seen some benefits, I just wish she'd buy her own copy so I can have my book back!

I was looking for a very easy workout to do during my recovery, mainly to keep my muscles from atrophying, and this was just what I needed. I started with the short, 10 minute workouts in the back (though they were included for those who are busy) and each week did a little more until I worked up to being able to use light weights. It was wonderful having exercises I could do from my chair before I was well enough to be up and around. I felt so much better being able to stretch and move without overdoing it.

Not all of the exercises in the book can be done while sitting, but most of them can - even a modified version of sit-ups, which is much easier on my back than sit-ups are!

It was worth paying a little extra for the spiral-bound version, as it's nice having the book lie flat on the table while I exercise instead of having to hold it open.

Many people have injuries, arthritis, age-related conditions , are way out of shape etc etc that make it harder to exercise.

This book makes it easy.

It combines stretching w/ minor strength training using small hand weights

It has a quick at the office/computer workout as well

Depending on the circumstances one could do the workout and watch TV (like my elderly mom)

I find it very helpful especially for those who are weaker, elderly, out of shape or have a balance problem
etc but an average person can find this both helpful and fun and EASY to do as well.

I recommend this book/program. It is exactly what it says and it is a routine I think almost anyone can/will follow
even those who despise working out.

A great set of exercises for those of us out of shape and with bad knees.

Includes a lot of options from a one hour workout to a series for those who don't have time to exercise.
