Customer Reviews:

  • Nice Set Of Stretches
    This is good selection of shorter stretches to work with. I had been bad in my habits of trying to take care of myself, and had forgotten how much I enjoy taking some time for myself for some simple things. This is DVD has helped. I am starting to feel better and often find myself doing small stretches during the day. It makes the world of difference and this DVD can be used by anyone....more info
  • Just Stretching
    I really like this dvd. I got it because I started training for a sprint triathlon and hadn't been working out much before that. I didn't want a yoga or pilates stretch dvd because they tend to also want to work your muscles and I was already doing that. The workout has very effective stretches. My muscles feel great after I am finished. The instructor is pleasant....more info
  • Absolutely 10
    This stretch tape is absolutely a perfect 10. I have health issues with my muscles, but I was able to do the much needed stretches and knew they were doing me good. It will even tax those in tip top shape. I highly recommend this tape to anyone of any age....more info
  • Nothing against the streches offered BUT the hold time is too short....
    I agree with Amelie Bolduc...The stretch hold times are too short and I myself am trying to master the streches in my memory so I can do them without the dvd. That's the only complaint I have. The type of stretches offered are a great variety for the different type of lifestyles u may have....more info
  • Good but...
    This is a good DVD showing good techniques. I would give it a five-star if the instructor wasn't flying through each exercise. You're supposed to get a good stretch by staying 20 seconds in the same position. But that would go against the way the DVD was marketed: Perfect in 10 minutes. The DVD should really be called "Perfect in 20". I have memorized the stretches and now stretch without the DVD. ...more info
  • Perfect for me
    I know I need to stretch. My body tells me so from the aches in my neck and shoulders, to the pains in my hips, knees, and feet. Most stretches rely on yoga-type poses. I don't really like yoga. I just wanted good, basic athletic type stretches that I could work into, and not have to feel like a pretzel or have some mystical experience.

    This DVD was for me. The are five 10 minute segments, so you can do as little as 10 minutes, or more if needed:

    Upper Body, Back & Hips (my personal favorite all over stretch)
    Hips and legs (another good one for runners & walkers)
    Sedentary lifestyle (for those stuck behind a computer, or with neck and upper back issues)
    Sports Stretch (designed for golfers or racquet sports players. I like it since I have shoulder and carpal tunnel issues)
    Intense Stretch which is, you guessed it, based on yoga.

    Annette Fletcher cues well, encourages deep breathing, and "letting the stretch happen." She has a pleasant voice and is not annoying or screeching (Denise Austin). My flexibility has improved and so have the pains in my hips and knees. You don't think this is doing that much for you, until you stop doing it!

    I use this DVD after more strenuous workouts, after my 3 mile brisk walk, or when my neck and shoulders feel tight after a crappy day at work and I just need to unwind myself before I curl into a little ball of stress.
    I have given this DVD as gifts to others who also need a good basic stretch program. I highly recommend this DVD and instructor, especially if you are not a yogini....more info

  • Great place to start! But don't put it aside later.
    My mom who is over 70 and I (age 50) tried out this DVD with the aim to become more flexible because we were both so out-of-shape. WOW! May I again say WOW! Not only could we both do most all of the stretches, but we began to see results within only a few sessions! Plus, it's a great de-stresser! Flexibility and strength continue to grow as we have committed to continue this indefinitely. We have become confident enough to even add aerobics... You can pick your present physical condition and start with only one of the several 10-minute routines. Who doesn't haven't 10 minutes a day? The leader makes it easy and is quite encouraging. I am so very pleased! Try it for yourself. No matter how long it's been since you exercised, you can start with this DVD and then later use it as a warm-up or cool-down. With the emphasis on weight-training and aerobics, we must not forget to stretch for flexibility! ...more info
  • Excellent stretching exercise
    I immediately worked through the whole exercise when I received the dvd. I had sore shoulders from doing some heavy work in the garden and after the exercise my shoulders were not sore anymore.
    I cannot reach my toes yet but my girlfriend assures me that this will get better with every exercise.
    An excellent dvd.
