Are you injured or living with limited mobility issues? You can still exercise! Check out Coach Nicole's seated workout for a simple, modified way to get fit.
This video includes several of the moves my physical therapists have me doing after surgery. Can't do them all yet, but will when Dr. says I can. Very helpful.
This workout is very helpful. Just starting out and looking for excercizes I am able to do. I have COPD and this is one I can do. Thank you so much for posting this video. You are a lifesaver.
Still recovering from a bad asthma attack, so I needed something gentle, yet calorie burning. Fit the docket! Thanks Coach Nicole!
Great seated workouts!
This workout is easy for me to do in the small bits and pieces that are okayed by my doctor. It will be great when I am given permission to do the whole video at one time, but for now I just do what I can.
Great workout love it
Great workout! Was surprised how easy it was after my muscles became used to the movement. (Much easier after the first week or so). Stick with it!
I start my day with this workout.
Good start to the day while I'm at work.
Good workout for the workplace and home.
Ow, I hurt! Haha! Great workout! I did have to modify it quite a bit because I am so out of shape and I am in a wheelchair. But I hope to get to the point that I can do it very similar to how Nicole does it!
good workout for the short time. When I don't want to exercise I go to this video!
This started out as something for which I was reviewing for friends who can't really work out (or are chair bound). I have been doing this video (and added in the others - alternating days I do the second one - arms, abs, etc.) - they - are - *FANTASTIC* - I normally do Kundalini yoga and 'tai chi for weight loss' (based on tai chi but is a low impact cardio work out). I also do power walking and floor workouts/cardio/t
oning. in the TWO weeks that I have been doing THESE - I have lost nearly two inches and have definitely increased my cardio/fitness! They're short, challenging, but not so that they can't be done! I can see how they would be difficult for the beginner or someone who's not worked out in a while. JUST do what you can! Just do the 'top' workout (making sure your lower half is well situated and squared). Then gradually add in just a LITTLE bit of 'leg' - you don't need to add very much to give it an impact. Doing these practically daily has made a HUGE difference in my life! Thank you!!
