Penny -

I just checked out YouV2 - it looks like a lot of fun! Did you buy DVDs or use Beachbody on Demand?

It definitely looks like a fun and low dread program.

Gilad and Kathy Smith also offer slower and more controlled workouts. I'm thinking of Kathy Smith's Secrets to a Great Upper Body/Lower Body series.

Gilad's routines are also pretty safe, I feel. And, good scenery, too.

UV2 looks fantastic!!! Only drawback from the clip is lots of hooting and hollering. PennyK, did that get aggravating during your challenge?

Donna, I used a set of dvds that I found on Ebay.

Pat, it really didn't. I think it made it more fun and pushed me.

Thanks! I'm going to treat myself to an On Demand subscription when I turn 63 in May. That should cheer me up.

That sounds awesome!

I can see where some people might not care for Leandro because he is a character in this set, but I think he is just really trying to make it fun.
I was often busy learning the routine and then once I got it, I was hollering too.

Thank you OP for starting this thread. Some of these suggestions sound great. I'm all over the map right now with what I'm doing.

My recent check in with my doctor has strongly suggested more calm and controlled routines. (My immune system is wiped from Covid... still... I had it in Oct. Enough said about that). So I've been trying everything I have, but now I'm thinking I need to check out the YouV2.

I think I want to feel like I used to using certain methods and/or instructors but I'm starting to accept I might not. It doesn't mean I can't have a quality workout doing something different from what I'm used to. I feel crazy trying to figure this out. My doctor even suggested Jessica, which I had just started the thread about trying her for the 3rd time. But I get up this morning thinking about how so many of her routines are controlled and slower than what I'm used to. Maybe that MY problem... not hers. So, a possible round 4 of trying JS might start.

I so appreciate the perspective given here at VF. I need to accept my mind and body are not on the same page with workouts. I just want to move well.

Thank you ladies.

Mary has the set for $39 - can't decide on that or BOD....w/ BOD at least I could try some other workouts...but is it hard to cancel?? That is the question, LOL!

Tina - hang in there - who knows, at some point you may feel differently but you can't go wrong listening to your body and giving it what it needs. COVID is nasty - fortunately, so far, I have escaped it - but it seems to take a toll on people and it sounds like recovery is just not a matter of not having symptoms any more.

Qigong, particularly Lee Holden's 30 Day Challenge has been awesome for me.
Over the last couple years, I have had a hard time wanting to do anything at all.
And he has helped me at least move a bit. The workouts are only seven minutes each and I love the setting and the calm it brings me.

I think I will pull out a Maribai Holland dvd tonight since Pat reminded me that I have hers.

I tried Debbie Siebers Dynamix Cardio Walk last night and thought it was just okay.
