    My wife and I have gone to pilates classes for seniors using machines. But the classes are on the expensive side. So we tried a few pilates DVD’s and most all are for younger, more flexible people. Since we are in our mid 60′s and in pretty good shape, we wanted a program that challenged our ability. Most of the DVD’s we tried mostly catered to seniors with some sort of physical quality that limited their abilities. Stonger Seniors has been the perfect program for our age group. The program is professionaly produced and Anne Pringle is the prefect instructor and moderator. She explains every step and clarfies why its being done. We have been using it for 4 months and do the program 3 days a week and still enjoy it. It has made us more flexible and I don’t feel like a big heap of muscle pain when I do outdoor activities such as snow removal. We have also purchased her Stonger Seniors Yoga and Stretch and Strenthening DVD’s and we love then

    I bought this DVD along with the Stronger Seniors Yoga for my mother, who is neither a senior or immobile, but healing from a major surgery to her abdomen due to a cancerous tumor. Seeing a once very active women sitting on the couch killed me. These DVD’s have got her active again and has allowed her to heal at the same time. There is accommodations for all levels of ability, and you can choose a long workout or a basic one. It also seems she has more energy and is happier, which is very important to the healing process. I found that I got a good workout as well. These DVD’s are great and I recommend them for anyone.

    I am not yet a full-fledged “senior” but I am getting there. I wanted something to work my core without exhausting myself or being too difficult for me to complete.
    This is the answer for all of us, not only seniors, with flexibility issues or other body wear and tear which requires care when exercising. I would say this would be suitable for anyone 55 or older who is reasonably active. Its aim is to keep you active and able to do everyday activities easier. I can do the entire routine and the instructor is wonderful. She explains things well and goes at just the right pace. The routine takes a bit over a half hour so it is not too long for those of us with time issues. There is a warm-up, then the core routine and ends with some standing exercises to strengthen your legs and feet (which Anne says to omit for those having trouble standing). Other than this, the rest of the routine is done sitting.
    I do feel like my core is working and I find that for a time after I finish, I do stand taller with better posture. This is a routine which I will find helpful for many years to come.
