5.0 out of 5 stars An Exercise DVD that delivers the goods December 11, 2005
By Pearl
Format:DVD
I exercise regularly at a gym near my home, but when I travel for business or pleasure, I'm not that comfortable in new facilities. So I thought I'd give this DVD a try. I can't say enough good things about it.

From the beginning info on osteoporosis and bone loading through the exercises and finally the stretch and further info on dietary recommendations at the end, this was just what I had been looking for. I found it easy to follow Mirabai's instructions because she demonstrated clearly how each exercise is done while talking about alignment and posture. After watching and doing it along with her a few times, I found I was able to have the DVD on my laptop and just listen to cues without looking at the screen. In fact, hearing her remind me to relax my shoulders and remember to breathe made me look around to see if one of the trainers from my gym was in the room with me!

Another thing I liked was Mirabai's options for making the workout harder or easier and variations for those with more or less flexibility while always reminding the viewer to be aware of how their body reacts to each exercise.

And oh that stretch at the end feels so good with its combination of slow, rhythmic movement and stretching poses accompanied by gentle music you are barely aware of. The effect is that of having spent a couple of hours at a spa where you have done something really good for your mind and body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Precise exercises for bone loading December 3, 2005
By Grace
Format:DVD
When I learned that medical professionals and Prevention Magazine endorse "Skeletal Fitness," that was enough for me! I sent away for the DVD and am very glad I did.

I love Mirabai's straighforward, down-to-earth style and trust her professional expertise and credentials. [She's certified by the American College of Sports Medicine, and specializes in preventive and rehabilitative exercise.] After working out with the DVD, it's easy to see why she's receiving such accolades.

Mirabai has zeroed in on the precise exercises that put just the right amount of gentle stress on the bones to stimulate bone growth by using light weights, small movements, and resistance - stretching and isometric techniques. The exercises target all the areas most prone to fracture, such as the hips, ankles, and wrists. The exercises are easy to follow and simple to do. Definitely a program I can stick with and fit into my busy schedule.

I also appreciate her reminders about posture and correct breathing while exercising, and about not squeezing the weights too tightly. Her timing seemed perfect - she caught me every time! All in all, exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great video for boomers who hate to exercise January 18, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Years ago I bought Jane Fonda's first aerobics video, and after one try, I never did it again or bought another exercise video. Then someone gave me Skeletal Fitness as a gift. It's perfect for boomer beginners who don't like to exercise but know they have to get started. Mirabai Holland's gentle, encouraging approach didn't intimidate me, and she didn't make me feel inferior when I got tired along the way. In fact, she offers alternative ways to do her workout for people who don't have the flexibility to do some of her stretches.
I also really like this video because it explains the importance of each exercise and how/where each one helps your body. I feel like I'm learning a lot at the same time as I'm giving my body a workout. At the beginning, there's a good explanation of what osteoperosis is and how giving your bones a workout - it's called bone-loading - can help prevent the disease. After the workout, there's an even more in-depth discussion of osteoperosis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended! January 18, 2007
By Riolama
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have recently discovered all three of Mirabai Holland's videos. They are all great! No crashing waves against the shore. No little jokes that are so-so the first time, but with repeated playing drive you up the wall. No personal comments. Just a no-nonsense professional approach to fitness. She knows her subject and conveys it beautifully! I understand there are more videos in the works. I look forward to them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Skeletal Fitness review January 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If you've gotten a diagnosis of osteoporosis or osteopenia from your doctor, this video is just the prescription for beginning to rebuild your bone mass. Mirabai Holland begins with a clear explanation of what weight bearing, bone loading exercise can do for you and then leads you through a step-by-step workout that you can easily do at home.
After doing the workout for a while you really feel good about taking charge of your body and doing something positive just for yourself. I found myself smiling back at the TV screen as Mirabai assures you that these exercises will make you stronger and more fit for life.
This would be a great gift for your women friends and relatives!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive workout - good stuff! November 11, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a really well thought-out bone strengthening program. Mirabai is gentle and encouraging - and sees you through all the areas where you'd have potential fractures: wrists, hip, spine, etc. Having a video for this type of thing is far superior to an instructional book - it really takes the guesswork out of proper execution of the exercises. For myself, I feel like I hit a goldmine when I came across this DVD. Highly recommended for women young and old.
