5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! March 30, 2007
Verified Purchase
My sister bought this for our 80 year Mom since her doctor said that she has to start moving.... I did it with her and I love it!!! I grabbed a couple of hand weights and away we went.

I love it so much that I bought a copy for myself and I am only 45 yrs old and have been working with trainer for 6 months now. It is the perfect "couch potato" workout and I will do it while I am watching the news at night in addition to my other workout routines...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good seated workout for seniors October 20, 2007
By cav6
Verified Purchase
I feel that it has a well rounded set of stretches and exercises with a nice relaxing cooldown. All are performed from a seated position, which is what I was looking for.

Like another reviewer,I purchased this video for a parent. I did the video first to make sure it would be safe for her. Based on the cover,I was afraid that Sunshine might be a hyperperky, high-pitched cheerleader. She is not. Although she does perform every exercise without losing the smile that you see on the cover, she passively narrates the video and I find her voice quite soothing. There are visual cues to remind you to Breathe and a little sun displays when you are on the last exercise of a set (OK, admittedly a little hokey but I think it's useful for elderly or hearing impaired).

She does not offer modifications of any of the exercises (so the exerciser needs to be able to do this themselves), but she chooses simple, relatively easy exercises, so I think it was a good decision. For the purpose of this video I think offering modifications might make it choppy and potentially confusing for the target audience (older and/or rehab patients).

Slight criticism is that when she does the torso twists, I wish she would pause in the center (right, center, left, center) instead of going directly right and left but that is a modification I will discuss with my Mom.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK October 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
This video has about 20 minutes of exercise with warm up and cool down. It has some fair stretches. It has good foot and ankle range of motion and mild strengthening. The end of the tape is about a 10 minute relaxation. My 74 year old mother found it pretty easy. No weights. Sunshine does not do the narration. The narration sounds like an older lady and is nice and slow. She has a narrated demonstration before each exercise. 10 repetitions per set. She warns you when you are on the last set and gives you a visual clue in a sun picture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Senior day care assistant April 13, 2010

This reviewer would like to review the exercises on the video, rather than the appearance of Sunshine. I threw this video in for a group of elderly men and women, of varying ages and abilities. For safety, I only like to use sitting exercises, as the group exercising could have falls or injuries trying to do standing exercises, or alternating from standing to sitting. I always remind them they can do more or less repetitions based on their abilities. Sunshine's movements were nice and slow for the elderly crowd, yet still doing the job of improving range of motion which definitely diminishes with age, and lack of use of the limbs. The group exercising to this video also felt it provided enough challenge to their exercise program.
Sunshine does mention to breath quite often in the video, which I caught myself needing from time to time. I also noticed the elderly group responding to her reminders to breath.
I had no problems with the sound quality of the video, and did not see any participants having any problem with the sound or video quality.
This is a simple video, with Sunshine sitting in a chair by the beach. The view doesnt change, nor does her smile. In my opinion, this is a good video to have as part of a collection. Another good exercise video I would recommend, is- Rise Up With Rosie: Joyfulness in Motion. This video is more fun than Sunshine, but may be harder to find.
All in all, this video offers good range of motion and strength improvement, with easy to follow exercises. She stays sitting the entire time, for those who want a true "exercise while you sit" video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Chair Exercises tape perfect! December 17, 2007
By KarenM
Verified Purchase
My ever-critical 85 year old mother, who can only shuffle around instead of walking due to feet problems, is delighted with this particular tape. She can sit and do the exercises and it has been a god-send for her. I strongly recommend it to anyone with limited mobility. My mother doesn't get delighted over anything! I am getting another copy for when she visits my sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVDs for seniors' exercise November 17, 2010
By Joel
Verified Purchase
I got a few exercise DVDs for my parents. Excellent exercises that improve the range of motion and not so hard they can't do it. This is certainly 0ne of the better ones in the market.

The exercises are very simple yet effective. The routine is not very long. The teacher clearly shows and explains the exercises and does them at a nice slow pace and my parents follow along easily. There is a nice soothing relaxation at the end of routine which has positive affirmations and is very good.

Recommended to anyone who wants an easy sitting exercises routine that works.
