  • Like the DVD
    I like the book, it has good information but not wild about the way it is written with the corny diagrams as it makes it a little hard to follow. Some of that is okay, but it's a bit much. I love the DVD especially the Qigong workout - it was worth the price of the entire package. I use that several times a week and would like to see more Qigong. The guy on the other workouts is tough and relentless so not enjoyable and it doesn't motivate me when I have to try to keep up. Overall I think a good purchase. ...more info
  • Exercise by Show and Tell
    The "You Staying Young Workout" DVD is a helpful learning aid like a "show and tell Version of the "cheat sheets" found in the book. Joel Harper illustrates his exercises well both at beginner and advanced levels. His running commentary helps to clarify his procedures even more. Karal Romain makes the Chi-Gong exercises easier to follow, especially when demonstrating the proper sequence of breathing in the process of seaking health benefits. Both trainers have assistants in the role of trainees to provide a more natural team approach to these exercises.Compared to the group exercises of Tai-Chi that I had participated in before, I find the DVD approach to Chi-Gong more efficient and even more liberating allowing me to review and to examine the exercises at my convenience and my own pace. In that sense the DVD has raised the physical education aspects of the book to life....more info
  • Three excellent workouts
    I purchased this DVD with an Amazon Gift Card. I am very pleased with the three very simple individual workouts, that are geared toward increasing strength and muscle tone as well as a nice balanced Qi Gong workout. It works for various times of day and energy levels.
    I also like the comments by the physicians on how to stay fit and healthy. ...more info
  • A workout for beginners or older folks
    I was excited about using this workout DVD since the doctors who endorse it are on Oprah and we all know Oprah's got good taste! However, after viewing and working out to the entire DVD, I was surprised at how easy it was-- too easy. I think that it is a good start for people who are new to exercise and for say, my 80 year old grandparents, but not much more than that....more info
  • Never go to a gym again!
    Purchased this dvd after watching a television program featuring Dr. Oz and normal people losing weight by eating right, walking 10,000 steps and working out without weights and following this dvd. I haven't lost weight but have lost inches on my waist and thighs....more info
  • I've seen better
    You: Staying Young Workout (DVD)
    I am a dedicated fan of the doctors, but was very disappointed in this video. The exercise instructor seems like more of a drill master although the exercises and beneficial. I have learned Qi Gong from a professional teacher and felt that instructor did not understand the CONCEPT behind doing Qi Gong and the energy created, but was merely going through the forms for "exercise". I can do better on my own, thanks....more info
  • It is fun and nice to do
    It is creative, easy to learn yet needs daily practice to get good results. After 2-3 weeks we can learn to use and be aware of the muscles and energy areas in the body. thanks for the good job.

  • You Staying Young Workout
    I suppose this could be a pretty good workout. I'm not sure what age group it is intended to reach. I fatigued easily in some spots. Infortunately the Qi-gong part was disappointing ( not real sure, I moved any chi)...more info
  • so worth getting!
    I really love Joel's workouts! You hit all the majors and the core in 20 minutes or less, you need no equipment and very little space. Level 2 on this is under 20min. and you will still break a sweat! Joel has a warm, friendly presence, not at all intimidating. Another winner....more info

  • Great Workout
    I purchased two DVD's so my sister and I could both workout and compare notes. It is a great workout for us--we're both in our 50's and I believe this will be really good for us IF WE WOULD KEEP USING IT!!!...more info
  • disppointed
    I was very excited to see that there was a work-out video recommended by Dr Oz. His no nonsense attitude towards being a healty person made me realize that I have no excuse to not be exercizing or eating right. I could hardly wait to get the dvd once I ordered it. Well the video seems made for people who are already in good shape, and have no physical limitations. I could hardly do the warm-ups, and once the instructor decided to spend a massive amount of time having you put your weight on your knees, I was done. I can't kneel on the ground due to surgery, and his suggestion of putting a towel underneath to cushion you was not helpful. If you know these excercizes will not be comfortable (or possible) for a large number of people, how about modifying them so we can do them?...more info
  • great book
    This book is quick to understand and you don't have to read it cover to cover. You can pick out a section that interests you the most and read the highlights. It's not too deep in medical terms but does explain the ones it uses. Any chapter would make an improvement in your life....more info
  • You Staying young workout
    This is a great starter exercise video. I do like the TiChi type and I will be trying those moves to balance myself....more info
  • Very convenient for anyone who wants to get in shape or improve his / her athletic performance
    Joel Harper and his partner clearly demonstrate two short all body workouts without any instruments that you can do at home, outdoors or in a gym. The workouts are for beginner and advanced levels. Not only do the programs cover most muscles in the body but they also give them different types of workouts : 1 ) isotonic strength exercise ( dynamic ) 2 ) isometric strength exercise ( static ) 3 ) stretching. Joel Harper particulary emphasizes the importance of correct breathing during the exercises and keeps on reminding it. Even the beginner level can be made advanced by increasing the number of repetitions. I have been doing various kinds of sports for years and have incorporated Joel Harper's workouts into my program. I disagree that they are too easy. If you are an absolute beginner do the same exercises slowly with a low number of repetitions. As you advance just increase the number of reps and it is no longer beginner level. Even the best performing athletes can benefit from these two programs by increasing the number of reps to their levels of fitness. That's what I did.

    In the DVD all exercises have written names, so it is possible to write down a program and do it without watching the DVD as you exercise. That's what I do because I prefer to do them in a gym not at home, also I do the exercises longer with more reps than in the DVD. I recommend that you watch the DVD several times before you do the exercises. Some reviewers have complained that as they exercise the DVD moves into another exercise too quickly so they can not keep up. Who told them to try to do the exercises while watching the DVD for the first time ? You won't have keeping up problems if you watch it several times before doing them. In fact if you write a program with the names of the exercises and watch the DVD several times in advance you can do them anywhere without putting on the DVD.

    Even though I swim, play tennis, treadmill, stretch and lift weights regularly I still get a good workout from Joel Harper's programs. In fact it has contributed to the variety that I needed in my exercise routine. Doing the same kind of exercises every week gets boring and muscular development slows. Variety is necessary in any workout program to prevent boredom and shock the muscles so that they don't get stale with the same routine. Joel Harper's programs have helped me in this aspect when I combined them with the other kinds of sports I do. Moreover, by contributing to my fitness they helped me improve my performance in the other types of workouts.

    If I feel tired I can make the programs easier by just decreasing the number of reps. The programs are convenient for busy people because they are short, about 20 to 25 minutes. If you have the time and the level of fitness necessary you can inrease the duration to about an hour by increasing the number of reps.

    The Chi- Gong program by Karl Romain, the Kung Fu world champion also in this DVD is interesting but I have not applied it yet.

    If you are interested in more detailed and advanced exercises I recommend the Fitpack DVD by Joel Harper as well. I purchased it after this one. The exercise program in the Staying Young and Fitpack DVDs are different so you will not be purchasing the same programs twice. The latter has 9 different programs on two discs running 170 minutes. Many men, women and children demonstrate the various programs with Joel at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels at the same time. One of the programs is a full body workout, the others are shoulder, legs, abs, back and cardio programs. They are longer and more detailed than in this DVD but different. You can combine the various programs in different ways and provide the variety that your body needs in workouts.

  • helps one stay young
    Saw the two doctors responsible for this book on Good Morning America and was convinced I should buy it. The book is easy to read and makes great sense. I think it and the DVD it comes with will be a big help is achieving my 2008 goal of getting healthy....more info

  • this dvd is great
    My friend and I really enjoy this dvd as we are both a bit older and not as flexible as we once were. This feels good to do but is not complicated and I have not quit doing the workout. Helps my balance and feels great. ...more info
  • Great workout for those who desire lower impact. The tai chi is the best!
    Short doable little workouts (3). The thai chi is nice little 15 minute workout, and low impact. Thai Chi actually lowers blood pressure (no kidding as I monitored my pressure before and after)....more info
  • It's OK, but I don't like the "funny" pictures.
    The book has good info on improving one's health. I would prefer something other than the sketches interspersed throughout the book. I wish the book was laid out slightly different for ease of finding info. I really fund the drawings distracting and not at all helpful, though probably most people would find them amusing. ...more info
  • great read and gift of health give this book to evryone you know
    looking for a gift for that fat sloppy uncle or that person who needs a wake up call on health but you just don't know how to tell them well this is the perfect book to give along with the workout dvd, they will thank you later...more info
  • Everyone should have to read this book!
    From start to end, this book is more insightful and helpful than all the years in a school classroom. This should be required reading for all human beings....more info
  • Nice and Easy, but not too easy
    The two workouts are really decent. The first one gets you into working out if you haven't or it's a good workout for someone who has limited abilities (or age). The second workout pumps you up a little harder. I think both of the exercise routines are less than 20 minutes. The moves are easy to remember and for some of the warmout moves or stretches I find myself doing them when I have a few minutes on my hands or I'm waiting somewhere.
    The chi gong routine is great. I would have liked more of it. It really does boost your energy and I feel extremely at peace and joyful when I finish it.
    With all workouts and basically anything in life - you get out of it, what you put into it....more info
  • Staying Young Workout
    This is an easy but excellent workout in a short period of time. It works all your muscles and ups your heart rate while making you stronger. I use many other workouts but this one is unique....more info
  • Joel's DVD is transforming my 40-ish post-baby body
    I have owned and used this DVD for three weeks and it is truly transforming my whole body even my squishy post-child bearing body and I have been out of the gym for five years. Is running after two children exercise? Well that has been the extent of it and this DVD is changing that. I can do the workouts in my pajamas and no shoes at anytime of day. After only three weeks I received compliments on my arms in a sleveless dress over Thanksgiving weekend in Key West. Whooo-hooo. I highly recommned this DVD for all shapes and sizes and fitness levels. Joel's instruction is fun and motivating too....more info
