  • Nice ! I continued walking or jogging through your warm up and also worked on balance without a chair. Thanks for a variety of warm ups.

  • I like the warm up and the cool down videos. I have been adding more of your videos to my workout. I can easily keep up with you and your mom. I am 79 years old so your videos are the perfect workouts for me. It’s easy to follow because you don’t rush and you explain each workout. Thank you for sharing your videos.

  • 💖🙏Another aspect I love about the two of you…..are the smiles and the giggles….when I start the day feeling low that perks me up…and of course moving will lift me spirits, too. Bless you!

  • Hi April and Aiko! I found this warm up easy, effective, and fun. I came away feeling as though I’d done a mini exercise routine and I felt great afterward. In fact, on a day when sleep eludes me overnight, this qualifies as an appropriate exercise for pooped out me! This one’s a keeper to add to my collection of warm ups because I love variety. Thanks…Anastasia

    • Thank you! Warming up is a gentler exercise routine in itself! So good you are moving your body as you warm it up! Smart too! 👏 Keep it going and moving with us! ❤️

  • Oh ladies you are a life saver! Recently I had a trapped nerve in my lower back and also I was caring for my lively grandson. Every morning before he woke, I would literally crawl out of bed and do your warm up to loosen my body. After a few days my back was better. Thank you 🎉🎉🎉

    • Thank you! So happy to know we helped and you are feeling better! 👏Moving and stretching muscles when you first wake up gets your body ready for the day and the fun of caring for your young grandson! Keep it going and keep moving with us too! ❤️
