Review:

I can run up the stairs again... something that I haven't been able to do in 20 years. I had no idea it was because I was losing muscle. I feel great and my doctor says that whatever I'm doing to continue it. I love this tape! --Jeanne Orbb - Chicago, IL

I have fibromyalgia and this is the only workout which makes me feel better. The exercises are easy to learn and the gal leading the workout is very knowledgable about fitness. My first tape last 12 years and finally broke, so I bought another. I don't think I could live without this workout. I highly recommend it to those that are afflicted with fibromyalgia. --Julie Robbins - gerifit.com reviewer

This workout is so ahead of its time. I don't know why insurance companies don't offer to reimburse older adults that buy it. It has cured almost every malady of getting older such as loss of mobility, bad arthritis, joint stiffness and general fatigue. I found this workout at my local library and finally returned it with a hefty overdue penalty. I bought my own on amazon.com. It was one of the best purchases of my life. --Candy Donald - Cypress, NY
