Dear Chair Dancing Fitness,
This program is absolutely awesome. I have tried umpteen different exercise programs. Sure I would see results -- minor results but only after a couple of MONTHS. Very hard to get motivated with such a slow show. Even joined Curves for a short spell and yeah I got some results -- after a while. But I found Jodi's Sit Down and Tone Up while googling some lower impact things -- and one of the Success Stories (Ann Heywood) truly helped make my decision to purchase -- she started on this volume and I thought if she got results - perhaps I could too.
I am 34 years old and started the program on 11/27/11 weighing in at 361.8 pounds - I did my measurements too because I know you cannot rely solely on the scale because muscle is more dense than fat. I wanted to do a session every day but as Jodi's tips say don't beat yourself up if you cannot achieve your unrealistic goals. Something is better than nothing. So it is Christmas Eve and I have done eleven sessions with Sit Down and Tone up I am actually proud of my progress and I have loss 1/4 - 1/2 an inch off my body and about 4 pounds!! And this is without going crazy with trying to diet on top of it. I just do my best with the food available and try to listen to my body when it says I am full even though sometimes my tastebuds say -- one more bite.
And for the FIRST time EVER I have results of toning in my upper thighs, upper abdomen, sides, backs of my arm, my actual back and my derriere.
THANK YOU JODI!
I love your tapes. I have old VHS player and use the tapes everyday--I have all
of them. I had both knee joints replaced and exercise and physical movement was
very limited. I have been using your exercises and have made incredible improvement.
My question: are there plans in the works for any new tapes or DVD's?
I would love to have more.
Thanks for creating such a unique motivational tool.
"I started on Chair Dancing around February 6. I had gotten on the scale and was totally upset at what I saw. I made up my mind to start losing weight and get some exercise. Because I have had numerous right foot surgeries over the last two years the conventional exercises I can not do. These exercises really give you a workout without putting additional strain on my foot. I have changed my diet and since February 6th have lost 16 lbs. I am now very motivated because I see results that I never got before. I have just ordered two more DVD's so I can change up the routine and have some more fun. Thank you for these programs."

Your video is great for my future years."

"Jodi's videos are great to follow first thing in the morning to stay flexible and get the
blood flow going when I know I won't have time to go to the gym. One of the things
I really like is that they don't require much space or any lying down on the floor.
They are so positive and cheerful that they make a GREAT start to the day ."
