  • Hi, Pahla. My wife (69) and I (75) are delighted to have found your friendly, encouraging, MODERATE workout videos. They’re just what we need now that we’re all under viral “house arrest,” as it were, and shut off from our usual neighborhood walks. We especially liked this session, with the special contribution from Agatha at about 15:25. Our cat also a pretty gray tabby liked it too.

  • Hi, Pahla! I loved your video with Danna and Robyn! You did great and I hope that many more women will start working out with you☺️
    My new favorite move is the “tap-back bursts”! I especially loved the moves in the last 10 minutes of this video! Fantastic and thanks��

  • I’ll be 64 next month and have been doing walking videos for a number of years, usually 30 minutes. This one didn’t give me a lot of steps, but it definitely worked me out more than the others! I also liked that there was no distracting music. First time here and I just subscribed!

  • Week one of your weight loss program. Such an eye opener and just so helpful ��. The ebook has set me up along with your exercises and podcast. So chuffed many thanks ��

  • Awesome and fun workout! I thought I might get bored of doing the same 5-min sections each day but it’s just the opposite. I have been enjoying them even more! Love your choice of music! I am able to get through the first 15 min with no problem. That’s when I start getting tired but I’m persevering, and I’ve been getting through 20 min and now 25 min! Love the moves in the new section! Thanks again for this workout program that I have been able to stick to and look forward to each day!

Alleyoops after 3mths off are challenging�� And I cracked up at the I am talking to you my friend������ Kelly of old totally would have kept on going. But this almost post eczema Kelly has FINALLY learned a thing or two about weight loss and Maintanance �� And this my dear, was a wonderful gift all unto itself��

  • Great moderate workout! You brought back memories for me. Though I was more a Copacabana girl than Daybreak. My parents wouldn’t buy Weeble Wobbles either and the frog is one of my favorite WB cartoons. In fact WB were my all-time fave cartoons on Saturday mornings. And thanks for the talking instead of music. I prefer it that way even though I love my music. Problem is, I don’t ever seem to like the music in any workout video that has it. You keep me company while I work out. Lol. Have a great day!

  • My younger daughter was a competitive gymnast. Sometimes during competitions, if one girl wobbled on beam, the other girls would look away, in order to keep themselves from having wobbles on beam. Today, I totally wobbled when you did during the finisher! ��❤️

  • It’s funny. That first exercise that you attributed to a Barry Manilow song, I was thinking of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline.” Great workout!

  • Hey Pahla, just to say I love balance workouts and hate cardio �� Still doing all the exercises though, thanks to your cool and fun approach!
    Thank you ��

  • 1. What did you eat for breakfast? I want some. 2. My brother had a Weeble farm with Weeble horses! �� I might see if Mamma still has it…for my grand baby. 3. Michigan J Frog! ���� Love that frog! 4. Thank you for the fun workout. And for the record, CopaCabana is my favorite.

  • That was fantastic! ❤️ Have been working out with you for three months now, and this Power Walk is the extra few minutes of happiness that I’ve been looking for to add to the week! Thank you for all you do! ❤️ from Arizona!

  • I hate exercising but love this…..low impact is perfect and being able to do these standing is great. Also love that lucy isnt preachy. Do a few but the walk and tone is my favourite

  • I just wanna say I’m a 25 year old man and my knees are absolutely wrecked from football and heavy lifting, if I run for 10 mins I’ll limp for the rest of the day so you can imagine I was glad to find your low impact workouts, ive been doing your workouts for cardio for the past few weeks, I absolutely love your energy and my knees have never felt better!!! I just have to say Thank You so much for these awsome full body workouts and keep up the good work ������
    PS. Drinky birds will never get old ��

  • Im a caregiver for my 91 year old mom. Your walk runs are always inspiring food for thought that I do before she wakes up to maintain “fitness” hahaha mental and physical. ����

  • This was a great one! I burned 206 calories with a maximum heart rate of 142. About 2 miles. Inside, because we’re having a monsoon here in Kentucky.

  • Thank you sooo much I have been an avid exercisers and after 2 surgeries it really did me in. The moderate workouts make it possible for me to workout again after 50

  • Just to comment on what you said about music: one of my favorite things about your workouts is NO music! I completely agree with everything you said about it, and I really enjoy your talks.

  • Love this work out. I do it with jogging and high knees. Recommend Abba as motivational music..hehe. Never thought my legs would feel so light whilst jogging..stunned.
