Just burned 300 calories with this work out so thank you!!! I’m gonna probably do this work out every other day ��

  • im 13, and about 63kgs, i used to be skinny but earlier this year i broke both my ankles and have been in a wheelchair, becuase of this i still am not allowed to run, jump, or pretty much workout, i have gained nealy 7kg’s and im really not happy with my body. I am trying non weight bearing workouts becuase i am still hurt but they are not as good, but this workout is GREAT, i loved doing it even though it challenged me in some places(but its good for a challenge) Thank you!

  • I absolutely love this channel. These are the only workout videos I actually complete till the very end without a break. Helps me feel motivated everyday ��❤️

  • Great workout. Change the title though. Not (necessarily) beginner/overweight friendly. This is more of an intermediate workout in my opinion.

  • I’m not overweight, but I definitely want to loose a good 20 pounds or so. �� I gained twenty pounds since March during quarantine so I want to start working out again and low impact is where I’m gonna start. I’m gonna do this workout everyday with some warm ups and cool downs as well:) if I remember, I’ll update as well. Currently, I am 5’2 and 120 pounds but I’m usually around 100.

  • I am having a difficult time trying too lose my last 10 pounds. I was very successful the first three months and lose over 20 pounds. Help!!!!!!!!

    I am classified as endomorph body.. Thanks.
    My goal is to go back to my original weight which is 55kgs.
    Thanks a lot if you could help me. ����

  • Thank you Holly �� Can’t thank you enough for making this video.. I’m 90 kgs too.. I’m also on a weight loss journey.. and I am breaking down every other day.. because I cannot see results. Don’t feel like looking at the mirror too.. I think people like me can relate.. I hope all the people like me come across your video and be motivated.. you are doing a greeaaaat job.. you had my love at first sight.. or I should say love at first video ��

  • This was perfect for me! I have hardly any experience with floor exercises. I always felt awkward doing them at the gym. I was wobbly and shaky when doing the side planks, but as I got used to it, experimented with different positions, I wasn’t wobbly anymore! Thank you!

  • I just found you!! Subscribed! After a 4 year illness (very very long story for another day), I have minimum 60 pounds to loose. 35 years ago, I sported a 28 inch waist, and I don’t even kid myself I could ever achieve this, but with my health issues, which include 2 auto-immune disease, I really need to be healthy. Thank you for this! I’m going to start from the beginning and watch them all.

  • I am very unhealthy and can’t sprint for more than 1 minute so is doing jogs ok because those are pretty easy for me. I’m not overweight.

  • Damn girl you got my heart pumping. Was 154 kgs and now 115. The other workout I was doing was too easy, but this one got me in a sweat. Loveeee

  • I just had a baby and gained 50 pounds during pregnancy. I’ve also never been fit before so this work out was actually doable but also a challenge. I was definitely sweating!

  • Umm Joanna… what if not only are you overweight, but you’ve also basically been sedentary for a couple years? Asking for a friend ��

  • I felt I had to do something during this lockdown to counteract eating and sitting too much. I used to be a gym rat until arthritis took over. Fast forward 10 years and 10 pounds, and I knew I had to get off the sofa. Thank you for being so motivating, this is one senior that really appreciates you!

  • Hola me gustó mucho que una persona real muestre desde el principio yo soy una de las personas que busco personas reales de ver el cambio y verte me motivó mucho sigue adelante bendiciones

  • hello Holly!!! I’m so proud of you. This kind of workout is so helpful to those people who wanted to start like you. great job!

    -coachlei12 TV from Philippines

  • So I started this workout today. I am not overweight or obese I am normal weight but I am beginner so I chose this workout.
    Let’s see how long will I be able to keep up with this workout.
    My starting weight is 58.4
    Height 5’3
    Age 15
    Day 1: I did the workout in casual shirt and lawn flapper��, for me the workout was easy I only got trouble doin the squat and lunges as I hate them the most. In between the half workout I started to sweat, at the end of the 1st set my flapper looked liked I peed��. When I reached at punches in the 2nd set my heart rate got so high and I felt like I am going to faint right now so I stopped the workout for about a min and so, after that I started it again and then it became easy like before. After completing the workout I didn’t felt pain. I have done a few beginner workouts before but after 2 to 3 mins of workout my body will feel like someone have hit me, so I will leave the workout incomplete,but this time I completed the whole workout and didn’t felt any pain after that. So I am really happy with the workout, and I would highly recommend this workout to all the beginners cause this is really easy.
    Day 2: yay! Today is the day 2. Wow, I am so happy about it cuz it’s the first time for me to complete the second day. It was a bit easier than yesterday but today my armpits hurt a bit. I also sweat less than yesterday. I am so happy that I was able to keep up with the workout. I completed the whole workout with her with no extra breaks. Yay! I am also going to start intermittent fasting. Let’s see how long will I be able to keep up with it. Love you Joanna. I am so happy that I found your this workout. Btw you are so cute. Bubyeee

  • I’m 385lbs and my knees hurt horrendously, even just marching hurts and I feel my knees are gonna crack. Do you have exercise for morbidly obese with knee problems

  • I damn near busted my ass trying to stand up after them kneel squats�� I weigh 189 and I’m trying to get rid of belly fat and tone my legs and booty but the first 10 minutes I looked like a hothead�� today was my first day but imma keep trying to be consistent, I’m also fasting every 18 hours with a 6 hour eating window so hopefully I get the results I’m looking for

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU!! ❤️❤️ after 4 years of never working out, having a baby and gaining 70 lbs it is so intimidating to try and get back in to exercising but you are making it manageable ��

  • Don’t be fooled guys,i am 50yrs and this is not easy for me but at least i completed it.Thank you once again Daniel and team project team.

  • Daniel, I lobe all your work outs and all of your team, wow! Thank you so much for sharing them with us especially your motivations. May GOD ALMIGHTY bless you brother.

  • I love your videos. My blood pressure was getting higher than normal and my Thyroid was slow. I was tired of being told I would never lose weight now that my thyroid was slow. I found your videos two months ago and I have lost 10 pounds and a full clothing size. I watched your interview with Diana & Doug and decided I would not give up. I have always eaten good food, and was thin until my fifties. I was very proud to finish many of your videos on YouTube and now do them daily. I am 71 years young and hope to work out forever My blood pressure is 120/60 perfect. I eat a set amount of calories per day and feel positive again. Thank you for all that you do.

  • Omg, I’m glad I found this workout. I hurt my knee and I haven’t worked out in a week.. And this is PERFECT, low impact and my knees didn’t bother me one bit!������

  • Your videos have been so great for my healthier life goalsSO THANKFUL to have found these videos and for someone who doesn’t have the $$ for gym or workout subscriptions this has been a gift! Thank you

  • Oh thank you so much for this. I did a workout last week (Just a normal one for beginners) and i’m still hurting. I looked for a obese workout (i’m also a good 100pounds to heavy) and find you. I’m going to train with you for now on! Again thank you so much (ps i’m dutch, so excuse my english ��)

  • Did this today not knowing if it would get my heart rate up, it did. Have been doing lots of ankle twisting zumba during lockdown and have seriously hurt my ankles. Thank you so much, once my ankles are repaired will go back to standing low impact. Thank you sir.��������������

  • I’ve been struggling to lose weight for a few years-my goal is to lose 80 lbs. I’ve never enjoyed exercising for the exact reasons you named at the start of this video. From today on, I’m going to “try” my hardest to add a bit of exercise to my daily routine and increase my water intake. Baby steps! ❤️

  • Ich habe heute das erste Mal die Übungen mitgemacht. Meine Schwiegertochter hat sie empfohlen. Und ich konnte nur sitzen, aber es sind tolle Übungen und machen Spaß.
    Bis morgen��

  • Watching from Philippines im 55yrs of age and always join you doing workouts. Hope i could lossen my wieght. More power and endurance God bless to all��

  • Working out has always been very hard for me. I think I was going at it the wrong way though. I always tried to find some kind of app to help me but those never worked out they way I wanted them to. So for the first time. I tried looking on YouTube. It’s much easier looking for videos that fit with what I’m looking for.Overweight low impact. I just did thus workout and it was really nice.
    I don’t feel like I was hyperventilating like with those apps. Thank you so much. I will definitely be using this video again.

  • I loveur workout since 2016 tel now im super inlove and helathy ����������������������������������������‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️������thank u team body project more new exercise plsssss������

  • My son is almost 11 months. I gained 63 lbs my pregnancy. I’ve lacked the motivation to exercise and just feeling sorry for myself. I found this video and did it today. I am sweating and my body is fully engaged. I hope to come back tomorrow!!!

  • My mum had a breast cancer surgery last year and, is trying to get back to normal life. This was the first workout we both tried together. Not sure why but when I completed this exercise with her, we both teared up a little. So, thank you. thank you very much.

  • I just finished doing the whole work out and I got more of sweat out of it then my 1km walks i started doing this week.
    The sweat I got made me feel like I was in a gym!! Seriously im so happy u found you!
    Thankyou!!!! ��❤

  • BLOODY MARVELOUS! marvelous! I found this today and love that he gives us allowances to start and not feel guilty! I am actually working with bin bag stuffed in my clothes.

  • I am 104 kg. Most of the workouts I tried earlier involves some sort of jumping which puts stress over my calf and for the next 3 days I will not be able to continue the workout due to the pain but this work out did not put any stress on my legs but at the same time it is exhausting (at least for me) and I need to take a 3 min pause instead of the 1 min pause b/w the first and second set but glad that I completed it.

    Today is my first day. Let’s see how it goes. I will post my weight once a week.

    Week 0: 104.4

  • Oh my goodness, this was one of the best seated workouts I have ever done. I am working through a calf injury and tennis elbow. I am not elderly. I am in my forties, but this was great. It had my heart rate up and I loved it. I will be doing this workout twice a day everyday, until I am able to go back to TeamBodyProject other workouts. Thank you TeamBodyProject and Daniel! You are so motivating. The seniors in the back were amazing.����

  • Third day of doing this workout. Enjoying it so much. I am overweight and I just basically want to start moving and be more active and this helps me a lot. Already subscribed and hopefully I can soon do some of your other workout videos. Thank you for sharing your knowledge about fitness and how to have a healthy lifestyle. Bless you.

  • I am santanu, a retired army personnel of 69 years from Kolkata India. I do your exercise pgme daily. My submission is to make a low impact high intensity cardio of 30 minutes for seniors like me. My regards to one and every member of body project team.

  • Another fabulous workout with great motivating comments from Daniel, as always they make all the difference! Also, I found a lot of inner motivation from seeing the before and after pictures of the guests if they can make such changes, I sure can! Definitely worked up the ‘earnt sweat’!

  • Thank you so very very much Joanna for you do able exercises. Due to bad knees I have trouble doing other exercises, but not with yours. Thank you again!

  • Brilliant! Loved it! I feel so good after these short sessions, can throw everything in cos it’s for a short time. Love this session cos I can adjust for my Achilles’ tendon. Fun, interesting and loaded with encouragement. Thank you.

  • Thank you so much brother, your video s used to me, amen hallelujah �� ���� �� Praise the lord, god bless you abundantly �� ���� ��️, I appreciate you… ����

  • XD oh hey its my aunt and uncle! They really do make sure to do these exercises each day, and at the pace that they need to. Its very nice.

  • Loved this workout! And loved doing it with the man who looks like Asterix!! Thanks so much, from a beginner who needed motivation during the Covid-19 and you guys gave it to me:)

  • I see a lot of comments about how this routine is too hard for them. It’s really frustrating to see tiny, fit, young instructors trying to promote “beginner” workouts for obese people, when they have no idea what it is to be obese. Something as simple as lifting your leg or reaching over your head can be difficult and painful. I know Joanna has a newer workout of this type (Obese/beginner) and it’s much, much better. However, she still includes the low impact burpee, and this is absolutely impossible for me to do. It’s not safe for someone who weighs 300, 400, lbs, to be putting all of their weight onto their wrists and hands. I really hope these well-intentioned instructors start consulting with experts in obesity to create such workouts. The movements have to take into account the massive amount of weight and the strain being put on ankles, knees, shoulders, etc.

  • This video is a fantastic idea. I am 220 pounds and I have plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia and every bloody video on YouTube has skipping, jumping jacks and of course the dreaded burpee. Thanks for this

  • IM SO HAPPY THIS EXISTS!!! Thank you so much for making this, it’s so nice to see someone with a body like mine doing something like this for the exact reasons you said at the start ������

  • This was exactly what I needed. I could actually focus on working the right muscles instead of struggling with the move. I feel great after your work out instead of discouraged that I couldn’t keep up. Thank you, Holly!! ������ Just subscribed.

  • I love this routine and I love that its made for real people. As hard as it is for someone like me to workout to those thin 20 year olds, this was a refreshing glass of water. This workout is perfect for me and I hope you release a few more. Thank you for all the help, much love ❤

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH! I find other workouts so difficult due to mobility issues but your videos are perfect. Having workouts that are achievable are so valuable, and seeing someone who looks like me doing them is really inspiring and helps me to believe in myself. Please keep going!

  • Ive been using YouTube to workout and its been so tough. Thank you for helping. These workouts seem way more doable for me! Babysteps are keyyy!

  • Thank you for this. I’ve become an emotional eater and with the weight I’ve gained I don’t have energy for fast pace workouts. Thank you again ❤️

  • Amazing people, this has become the clip that I have been followed the most. I thought the senior version will be too light, but I was wrong. It is fun and challenge!

  • thankyou so much for this, as someone who hasn’t done any exercise for months I needed this, maybe more stretching to begin with? I find now I’ve put more weight on my knees are weak, and doing the back kicks were quite painful, maybe not so much if I had stretched more. I loved it though so thankyou

  • AT LAST. Since back injury been looking for a truly beginner level Pilates. THIS IS IT! Others are not that I’ve found on YouTube. Great clarity of instruction, timings and music /distraction free video. Very accessible. I’ve done Pilates for years before injury and know that this is very very well done. Thank you.

  • I just finished this workout. My first step to getting back to the ‘me’ I want to be. I am exhausted, but feeling great about it. Thank you for making these videos. No hesitation on subscribing. I will see you again tomorrow! <3

  • You are fantastic, so refreshing, my saviour. I admire you. I am the same size and you make it look possible! I will exercise along with you.Thank you Holly

  • Ms. HOLLY, where you been all my life. Lol I am a new Subscriber. I just now saw this video, and was watching while reading through some comments and girl you are wonderful. With me being overweight and middle aged woman I honestly think i can do this workout. And again I love that it apartment friendly and no jumping lol

  • Hello no offense but I don’t think these is for beginners, who are over weighted. Can u also put some vedio for overweight and physically challenged.

  • Thankyou, I have been doing Daniel, Wade and Ange, a couple with Alex, however my left knee needed a break, so I searched TBP and found this, I feel at least I’ve done something (actually on the chair still worked up a sweat). So happy I’ve found TBP, so realistic, so inspirational, not judgmental and so friendly you just want to tune in, big thanks ����

  • i really appreciate this! most workout videos i see and just think well i can’t even move that fast. in PE classes i always found myself completely drained after a few minutes but this is all so much more achievable. also, seeing it done by someone who isn’t less than half my size is so much less demoralizing.

  • I have gained so much weight rapidly. It’s keep me on the couch or in bed depressed. It’s so sad that I went from being independent and doing everything on my own to being winded just carrying milk. Or walking up my stairs. Watching thin fit people workout did not help. They don’t know how much the pain is physically and mentally. Thank you for these videos. I wanted to be around people who are not as fit or not fit like me. You’re motivationally inspiring. Thank you.

  • Thank you soo much for this! So excited to try it!! Just started going to a gym 2 weeks ago, but not sure if I’ll be able to afford it every month. I’ve been searching for things I can do at home and this is the first realistic one. You could even use resistance bands if you wanted more of a challenge.

  • At work phones are slow. Did the chair version…WOW it made me bust a sweat GREAT WORKOUT I feel energized and NOT as hungry as before ������

  • I’m far from obese, but not in a very good shape. I really loved the video, it was the first one made for actual human beings. All the other videos seem to be made for super humans, who can bounce around like crazy.

  • i recommend you push your weight onto your big toe bone when you go up to your toes after the squats. This aligns your joints, otherwise you can injure your ankles if you push your weight onto your little toes.

  • I loved this, I could do every move. I wasent the only one getting winded and you are so sweet and encouraging�� Thank you�� I hate it when super fit ppl make work outs for fat ppl like me or begginers they dont eaven sweat

  • I’ve been at at home since March because of covid 19, and I’ve been sitting at home most of the time. I’m already overweight and gained more being at home sitting all day. Simple walking has become a major chore for my body and I decided just now I need to do something. Anything. A quick YouTube search of workouts for obese led me here. First video I clicked on and this is perfect for me. I was only able to last the first 15 minutes but that was more than I’ve done all month. I will definitely try to do this every day and see how much longer through the video I can make it. Thank you so much for this video.

  • I’m relatively in shape, not at all obese, and this still totally kicked my ass. Very good, thorough workout. Not everything needs to be complicated or fancy!

  • Thank you so much for this! I’m struggling right along with you! Thanks for making me feel HUMAN about that struggle you are perfection

  • I am from india,my height 5feet 3 inches..my age 29 years old
    i weigh 65 kg for the last 4 years….i try my die hurt to cut weight…. BUT I CAN’T

  • I have horrible knees and carrying the extra weight doesn’t help, but I am excited to give this workout a try since I can’t get on the floor and do squats. It’s nice to see and be able to workout with someone who looks like and breaths like me! ��

  • Hi Joanna I just downloaded this workout to start as I am start a weight loss journey. My current weight is 270 and I am 5ft 3″.my question is how much calories can I burn doing this workout? I want to add to my fitness pal app which I am also using on this journey.

  • Your doing a great job love! No matter what people say KEEP GOING, I will be following you and working out with you too! We aren’t doing this for the mockers. You are inviting others in that sorely need a good workout and see that they are amongst wonderful company!!!!!! My modo has always been “Big Losers NEVER QUIT!!!!

  • Thank you! I have never found a workout that would work for my size. I did this one today and was sweating but I felt so accomplished when I was done! It was so inspiring to see someone like me struggling through and completing it too! I recently went through a miscarriage and the pregnancy weight plus the depression eating after the loss made my lose all the progress I had made while trying to conceive. I hope that this workout will help me get back to healthy for my future rainbow baby.

  • I did this a few months ago but I always just did the first set and then today I tried again and I get through all of it. It probably doesn’t seem like all that but I’m proud of myself.

  • I’m 187cm tall and stocky naturally, I weigh 108kg. Going to get down to 80kg hopefully! Going to be a good journey to get back into my old clothes ��

  • I look soo much bad ��because of my body weight and fat, and i work out 2 months continuously but it doesn’t work, I lose my confidence, u r slim as well as beautiful

  • Is this going to burn 300 cal at a time… I mean after 20 min my weight will be. 300 cal less??? Is any side-effect as I am pcos patient.. Do I need sports bra for this exercise???

  • I am chubby and have had a microdiscectomy on L4-L5 and there’s NOTHING online to help me out, and my doctors just told me to try not falling, nothing else. I’m doing cardio atm but I’m going to have to do some strength training too eventually, and NOBODY is helping…

  • I absolutely love this and thank you for sharing it with us! Finally, a real and do-able full body workout, that really is for bigger people. It makes such a difference just to see someone bigger doing the exercises and struggling like us bigger people do, and not some perfectly thin, fit person moving too quickly and being patronising. I appreciate your struggles moving around on the mat just to change positions something fit people just don’t get or understand. On those videos, I’ve never been able to keep up as much as anything because they’re already half-way through the set before I’ve even managed to change positions on the mat, or got from standing up to sitting down! This is a serious game-changer and I hope your videos go viral! Please continue sharing your journey with us. You will make such a difference to so many people’s lives.

  • Hi Joanna, thank you for this workout program!
    I’m only 161cm but have around 106 kg… I tried other workouts before, but they were way too hard for me. This one of you is hard and exhausting too but I can actually do it! And it’s pretty fun too!!


  • The beginning was fine I was really pleased even find this video so I actually decided to try it now I’m 60 years old or will be soon and I have had a broken back and the lower part of my back the L1 I believe and I broken my left arm and the upper part of by the shoulder and I broke the other shoulder at the cuff that actually goes in broke it on both sides and some liability with my arms it’s something I’ve been working with for a while just from my couch I’m extremely disabled really and I can’t stay up long on my feet because of my back and my obesity is due because of my inability to move and so I enjoyed doing the stuff that I could definitely cannot do anything on floor so I’m wondering how much to patch could I possibly do that on the bed even just to the 1-2-3 stretch out on something lower like maybe in my coffee table if it would support me and then kind backed up I’m definitely not ready for touching my toes that’s not so so I’m just wondering can we change it be made and if I did that how much damage would there be to my back possibly or my knees that are one particularly is very arthritic so I guess maybe your workout is more for younger and over-sized I’m more older with disabilities and a lot of problems more in Mobile parts and I love the fact that I found you

  • Thank you so much for putting yourself out there for those of us that need this. It’s so encouraging to finally have a workout that doesn’t make me feel like a failure by the end. You’re wonderful

  • Okay this randomly popped up as I was leaving for work and I just desperately want to say THANK YOU.

    Thank you so much for making something like this. The workout videos I’ve tried in the past have just left me deflated and crappy. I’ll be trying these tonight! ��

  • Hi Joanna,my weight is 93kg,i want to lose 30kg,actually i have to because i am short,150cm tall.I was 67kg before,and i have gained a lot. It is my first time to actually see your videos and I did this today.Any advice from anyone please to motivate me so I can achieve my goal will be appreciated.

  • Omg this workout is perfect for me. I’m gonna start doing it every day and see if I can build up my endurance. This plus 30min walking. I tried starting at 3 mph but I’m gonna go down to 2 and build up. You’re helping out so much. I’ve been looking for a good exercise routine to help me lose weight and this is perfect. Thanks.

  • I love your workout ���� the realness of your workout is so motivating definitely will use this workout thank you for sharing x keep it up.

  • 13th day doing this and I decided to do 3reps and I feel like dying but so happy coz I did it. I am seriously enjoying this workout.

  • Last week was my first week…worked on the one with Wade…could only get to 10 min., but I did it! Skipped one day because of my right hip. So today I found this one and like this one also! So far all Body Project videos have been fantastic ( I checked all out and they all look good). Today I got heart rate up to 103 and 2000 steps in 10 minutes. Am feeling good about myself just after a week.

  • You guys are just amazing seriously. You are so inclusive AND best of all you use your targeted audience as people. If it wasn’t because money is a bit tight right now I would do a subscription because people like you deserve it.

  • Thank you soooooo much for this! I’ve lost 70 lbs so far & still need to lose maybe 40 or so. I might actually be able to handle this. Or at least work up to it. I’m subbing to your channel! Appreciate you.

  • Loved it
    I have a knee replacemt and have managed most of body project workouts because of the way it’s delivered and set out,thank you very much,starting to build strength and muscle��

  • Are you OUT OF YOUR MIND? I ran all my life. I DARE anyone my age or even 10-15 yrs younger to try to keep up! Running doesnt work for some people because its HARD to START.

  • I’m already overweight and gained 60!additional lbs since Apr 2020. I just finished this workout and I am dripping sweat. Holy moly! Here is to moving my ass again!

  • I’m a beginner and have a lot of weight to lose. My flexibility is almost zero so focusing on these type of exercises to start and this video is brilliant. I can feel it during and after but not too much. My muscles are getting stronger and giving me confidence I can do more aerobic type exercises in the future. It’s great to have a workout that pushes you yet doesn’t feel like I’m completely incapable like so many do. Great tutorial ��

  • My goal is to become a healthy weight for once in my life.
    I have always been overweight, even as a kid. I always ate unhealthy and never liked working out because that sweaty feeling that made me uncomfortable, along with mental health issues that made me insecure.
    Doing this workout was difficult for me but I definitely felt the burn and the sweat! So I won’t give up and I’ll keep coming back to this video everyday.

  • Do you even know that you are being listened and followed by French people interested in such exercices? You provide in the same time physical practice, and English lessons (since it helps to practice the hearing of your language), this is awesome!

  • Thanks Joanna. This was great ��. I have arthritis in my knees so the low impact was great. The Burpees were the most challenging as I can’t bring my knees up enough.

  • i have so many health problems and this is my go to video. doing 3/4 times a week and haven’t previously worked out in maybe a decade. will let you all know how my weight loss goes

  • Hit 224lbs the other day and decided I’ve had enough of being ‘The Big Girl’ in my town. This low impact routine is great! Has left me exhausted but let’s see how it goes ��

  • As an overweight out of shape asthmatic this workout though a bit hard on my breathing is been so helpful for me. Its helping me gain better control of my breathing while giving me a low impact workout my body can actually handle.

  • I have mobility isues due to a wreck, and falling on concrete. I did some of the exercises in a chair. Felt good. My goal is to be able to do all of the exercises. I need this bad. Thank you for this video.

  • My self-confidence really got to a low back then, and combined with the fact that I lost my grandmother a few years back so food was my comfort. I just started doing this workout and I hope that by 5 months time I may lose weight (currently I’m at 120 pounds) Wish me luck!

  • if you dudes hope to get ripped rapid without wasting a single another minute in the gym, then you have to look closely this online video SIXPP.COM

    We should not allow our personal values to erode, even if others think we are peculiar.

  • My husband is working out to loose weight and I am too after having a baby. Thanks for an easy to follow workout. You explain thingsvery well!!

  • 11:32 mins in and I’m gonna start doing this everyday. Then start another exercise video. Also a dancing exercise video as I love doing those. Preferably kpop dances. Anyways this got me very motivated. Thank you.

  • I’m around 75kgs,that extra 17karo I gained after my postpartum 5 yrs back. Will these help me reduce my extra belly,back and thigh weight.pls suggest

  • Most important thing to remember guys and girls is to never go beyond your limits! Stretch before and after. Im 335# and Im 61. I used to be very fit for my size ( well 80# lighter) I learned that when you are older if you don’t stretch your muscles shorten and injuries can happen easier when your beginning a fitness routine. I wish we lived close to each other Holly. So much we could learn from each other. Im not at all trying to turn attention from you because your doing wonderful and IM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!! I hope you get a huge amount of subscribers!

  • I swear this workout is the best.. i was doing this workout since june 13 and lost 11 kg.. together with Low carb diet. for first two weeks I’ve did this work out, 4 times a week, but now i can do this everyday. Thanks a lot mam Johanna. You’re a life saver.. ☺️

  • Thanks for this workout. I’ve been working out for weeks on other work out but my knees and ankles weren’t doing to great after a while, this is the perfect workout to do until I lose enough weight not to injure myself

  • I would try workouts on the internet. Try Unflexal. This website seems like you would have luck getting some potential. Good luck on your bodybuilding.

  • I’m 170 lbs that is considered as overweight right? But still damn this is hard I’m made it to 14:20 mins I’m tired already but dont worry I’m also doing skipping and ( pushups, plank, leg raises, and etc )

  • You always have great combinations of different exercises! keep it up, the people loves it and adores your passion. inspiration for days!

  • Thank you, Joanna! I just want to add to all of the other helpful comments that this workout is also good for people who suffer from frequent lapses of acute pain (especially in the abdominal.) This is truly helping me get back into working out again!

  • thank you so much joanna for creating this excersise workout. i am extremely overweight im 321lbs at 5ft 2inch in height, its very hard for me to excercise. but with your workouts i can do. i just have to keep pausing your videos for micro breaks to catch my breath. thank you so much. your awesome

  • I’ve been doing this workout for 5 days and prior to that I did it for 2 days and stopped because of soreness (I pushed it too far trying to prove something to myself?!). I just wanted to say that after 5 days this workout has felt easier! Today I was able to go ahead without the video, so now I can take this little routine wherever I go. I’ve improved at leg curls and lunges and my balance is getting there. All this in 5 days, i’m genuinely surprised. If I get converted to loving standing crunches though, i’d be really amazed ��

  • I was morbidly obese. I started this 3 weeks ago. I was 85kg. Today i weighed myself and i’m 75kg. I lost 10kg in 3 weeks with this workout and a low carb diet ���� keep it going guys. It works even if you’re not 100+. And i actually love working out now. Initially did this because of my weight and asthma

  • I’ve just come across this great workout and wanted to say how perfect it was for my level. I am fairly unfit and don’t feel able to do cardio. This is great, and still challenging but I made it through. I love how it has the exercises without the weights and with them. Thank you Samantha Clayton:)

  • Started this at 68kg with 158cm height! My goal is at least 52 kg at the end of this year. I also do low carbo diet. Does that sounds realistic or too unchallenging?

  • Heyyyy hello
    I’m following u religiously but while doing squats my knees r hurting a lot especially when I’m going lower..:-(
    What do I do….
    Please help me out..

  • Wow!!! I just realized how out of shape I am. But determined to lose the 50 pounds I have gained. Walking then this low impact workout till I am strong again. Thank you! Herbalife and Samantha Clayton for the videos.

  • Thank you! I’ve been stressing on how to begin my workout journey because I’m overweight and don’t have the strength to do the harder workouts yet. You go girl!

  • I’m going to do this cuz I’ve had back surgery lost muscle mass and I’m stiff I may stretch longer though and start out doing it twice and do weights the second time… Nice job

  • Nice one, Coach Sam! Been struggling to lose three kilos for like 8 months now, gonna do this every morning! xoxo from Philippines.

  • Last year I battled cancer and decided this is my year to battle obesity and diabetes and I am doing just that already off one insulin and 60lbs down come on guys lets get healthy together… We are worth it….

  • The first time I did this exercise I can barely do squats and I can’t do the lunges. Ever since, I did this exercise every morning and I can do and endure all the exercise.

  • I really really really appreciate this video. Thank you so much for this. You don’t understand how much of a positive impact this has.

  • Hi…i am so glad that I came to know ur channel… I started workout… I will keep u post my transformation… God bless u… U r fitness guru for me..

  • Totally appreciate the straightforward, non-hype style of all your videos. I DO NOT like exercise, never have, never will. But since I have to do it to address my knee issues, your simple narration without all the usual fitness saccharine patter makes it infinitely more palatable and doable. So thank you! 77 lbs. down 38 to go -and I think I’ll try this one tomorrow.:o)

  • Shout out to the person that keeps disliking the videos as soon as they’re posted. You’re just helping to raise the view count so more persons can see these wonderful videos. Thanks!
