    Just wanted to say thanks for the timing on this! It released the day our governor mandated for non-essentials to close, and I didn't know what I was going to sub for the light cardio class I usually go to in the morning. I'm really good about doing weight work on my own, but horrible at making myself do cardio - this is perfect!! Thanks so much for everything you all do. Stay safe!

    My mother sent the link to Vitality to her sister. Then she sent it to her book club. Then, when my parents were talking with my Dad's brother on the phone this afternoon, she told my uncle about the program and asked me to send him the link.

    We did Day 2 today, and she asked me if she should be using hand weights. LOL.

    Great idea, good to have something for the seniors to start reclaiming some strength and flexibility. There is a HUGE difference between peeps who do sports all their life and sedentary folks.
    So anything that helps seniors become stronger and more flexible is a big plus. Thank you!

    My mother did Day 1 with me today! I did not even have to bug her to do it. I was about to make my lunch, and had gone into the living room to ask if I was also to make some for my father. My mother said she was getting ready to do the workout and asked if I was going to do it with her. So I postponed lunch to do the workout.

    My mother struggled with the one-legged stuff as she does not like to put too much weight on one of her legs, so we broke that up by alternating legs after every 10 reps. After 5 sets, she was done--mostly because of the one-legged work on her weak leg. I think she did well for a first day though, and especially since she has not been doing any one-legged work in her classes at the seniors' centre.

    Afterward, we experimented with different things she could use for an assist. I had suggested a chair back for balance support for this day's workout, because I had not known she would need to lean so much weight on the support. The chair is too high for her for this purpose. But she tried out the exercises afterward while leaning on her cane (she has one with a very wide and stable base) and that seemed to work well for her. So we will know now for next time.

    When I was packing up after the workout, my mother asked me how it was accessed. She wants to send the info to her sister who is self-isolating at home due to being a senior in the UK.

    PetiteSheWolf ... you can do them both together.
    You heart-rate spiking? Minor problem, yeah. nothing a 5-minute rest between won't fix.
    As for a "Level 2 Program"? Make that a "Level 0.5 Program". VERY easy.
    I noticed a lot of folks saying "I'll give this to my Mum/grandmother" ... the loudest things are once-a-week March Steps!
    Should you feel limited by having to quietly exercise at home ... this will work for you, too.
    For a week to a month, it will help you 'maintain'.

    Perfect timing for this to come out! One of my friend's should be cleared by her doctors next week to start working out again, taking it easy still of course. I forwarded this program to her and she's excited to get started!

    I was just looking at this program, and the lack of floor exercises could also make it perfect for someone (like me) who is stuck in a cubicle most of the day and is looking for a way to stay active throughout the day. (Because I DO NOT want to get on this floor and do push-ups.)

    I think I might try it, and spread the sets throughout the day...

    Very nice, I'll suggest it to a couple of people I know, maybe I'll manage to have them enjoying Darebee as much as I do!

    For when I finish baseline (heart rate still spikes a bit up so too early for a level 2 program).Thanks so much!!!

    This is fantastic!!!
    These days due the stupid-virus, when a lot of people is confined at home and a lot of them are old people, is the perfect moment to offer them this program.

    I'm sure that it will be much more useful than the dozens of "coaches" that lately sprout like mushrooms in the social networks.



    Thank you!!
