    I LOVE this video! I am 8 months post op from a intensive foot/ankle surgery . Not once did I have to modify or stop due to pain. Knees and back made it too lol. Can’t wait to try your other videos. This gives me hope that I am finally able to get healthy again!

    Great workout for beginners with limited time between work and taking care of kids. I can easily do this while they are at practice.
