I love this! When I use this DVD, I am NEVER sore after my cardio program. I am more limber, my back feels better, and despite up to 4 miles of walking/jogging, my calves don’t hurt. I can’t recommend this highly enough

Who would have thunk it?!
I remember the ‘crazy’ (I say that with love Susan!) Susan with the cropped hair & loud mouth (again, with love!) that my mom used to exercise to. Flash forward a decade or more and here she is with a new look and new DVD’s…YAY! In an attempt to get my mom to “move” I purchased this DVD based on its reviews and WE aren’t disappointed! I love that she reminds people that she couldn’t always do some of the moves and shows alternative movements and encourages people that with practice they too will be able to do it. It gives people hope that if they pursue a healthy lifestyle that they too will be able to do the simplest of things that look so easy but when you’re overweight aren’t…like to sit up straight or Indian style. Bravo to her empathy! I’m glad that Susan puts everything in perspective. It’s almost as though she’s welcomed you into her living room (the inside of Jeannie’s bottle!) and she’s an old friend (which she kinda is for us!) and she’s inviting you to just “chill out” and stretch with her…she’s so real. This is a DVD that I love to do in between workout days and sometimes on workout days and sometimes after a rough day at work just to calm my nerves! And surprisingly…mom has stuck with her! She had commented that she didn’t realize how “tight” she was until she did this DVD! It motivated her to “MOVE”! So for that Susan, I’m SO grateful! Thank you for a DVD for everyone! Now will you please do a good STEP workout?! Thank you! 😉

LOVE these stretches!
This is one of the most thorough stretches I own. I would classify myself as an “advanced beginner”, if that makes any sense, and before doing this I had never realized how increadibly tight my hip flexors were. This dvd REALLY helped me to address this issue, which corrected my posture and form – VERY important if you want to benefit from any future workout. Now I feel my body working more efficiently and actually progressing with other workouts as well. Who knew?

Anyone can do it!
Susan is so very clear about the moves, you don’t have to worry about watching her to follow the routine. Plus, it makes you feel so good and energized when your done. Not high impact or impossible stretches,as she also shows steps in moderation. I highly recommend this dvd for those who want to just stretch and strengthen your muscles.

Love her AND this stretch workout!
I did this video after walking a brisk mile and it was so relaxing, yet it worked my muscles. I’m sore today from all the stretching, but it’s a good sore. She is very calm throughout the video and you can tell she is enjoying herself. She has such compassion for people who struggle with their weight. I’ve always loved her.

Love love love
I have been using this for 3 months and do not think I could get through my day without it. I have done every day since receiving it and love it. I look at Susan and think “no-way” but I am making slow and easy progress. Will never be that limber and do not expect to be but after being on my feet all day every day this helps my aching joints. Am so glad I ordered and have been recommending to friends. As you age those joints need stretched or you lose them. Thank you Susan again for coming to my rescue.

She is still the best. No one motivates like her
I have been a fan of Susan since Stop the insanity. She is still the best. No one motivates like her. I love her chatter through the whole DVD. And so helpful in every move and every modification. All fitness type all fitness levels can do ALL her DVD s. The stretch is so relaxing. I alternate this in between her Lean Muscle Mass to elongate and improve flexibility. LOVE HER!! Have a library of workout DVDs,, but ALWAYS come back to Susan!!!!!!!

  1. I’m 75 years young. I H A T E to cook….I H A T E cooked foods. I’m a raw food/veggies person. due to health issues 2 years ago I put on 50 pounds. Since then I’ve completely changed my life. I’ve gotten rid of things in my house I’ve even gotten rid of pots and pans. I have a couple yet. I have cravings for canned food yet so when that happens I go to the store, grab a cart and go directly to that asile and go down it saying to myself…..”I don’t need that,…I know what that tastes like….” for me that is all I need. Then I go to the fruits and veggies asile and fill my bag with goodies.
    I’m working on getting out of the house and working by walking and bending. I lift 2 pound weights and that is all for now. My humorous bone still hurts sometimes but I feel the pain and work through it. because of my weight I can’t get down on my knees and if I do I have a dickens getting back up. I had a TIA and I think that part of the brain is damaged. I work out what I can. Love to walk and I get out at 4 a.m. when it’s cool and walk up and down the street with weights of jugs of water. i’m doing great…for me….. and I’ve only lost 5 pounds and I need to increase everything. I still have cravings for sweets and when that happens I have a small piece of hersheys dark dark chocolate.
    Any suggestions.

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this video! I bought it years ago and lately, I feel so tight. I pulled out this video and got to work. Always feel better afterwards. Susan..PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do another stretch video! I’ve bought others but as Sinead O’Conner would say “nothing compares to you”. I’ve always found you refreshing and easy to watch. Would love to see more from you.
