I have used Purple Player on my Roku TV for Jessicaís WS3 and other workouts for a long time, and it has worked perfectly for me. Iím even out in the garage pretty far from my router.

I've never had any trouble with purple player. I stream them from my MacBook Pro, using an HDMI cable to display them on a bigger monitor. I actually love having all the workouts available on Purple Player. It's super easy to flip back and forth between different ones of hers. And I've had good experiences with the customer service people. I had a question about some of the new features she added to Lift & Shift. I asked the question on a Saturday, fully expecting I wouldn't hear back until Monday at the earlier, but I got a reply that same day.

If the program sounds right for you right now, I'd say go for it.

You can also play the videos from Jessica's Lift and Shift website. I think some people found this worked better. Once you purchase it, you can access the library.

When I first purchased it, I had problems accessing Lift and Shift from PP. It took a couple of weeks for their customer support to fix it. It was frustrating at the time, but once it was fixed, it works fine. However, during those first two weeks, I was able to access the program directly from the Lift and Shift website. Most people in the Jessica Smith Junkees FB Group have also been able to access Lift and Shift from PP with no issues. However, a few like me had to iron out some bugs in the beginning.

Oh, Joni, Joni, Joni....look what you went and made me do! Well, that and the 60 day money back guarantee.... So far, I have done 4 of the workouts and have enjoyed them, although I hate lower body workouts in general. In the first workout, which is over 50 minutes, she gives you the option to quit after the first half, which is what I did, since it was my first go-through. Since she goes a little slower, it is easier to go heavier, which is what I am looking for. And of course, there is Peanut. I have had no problems with the Purple Player.

I have been wanting to increase my strength, but 30-45 min is my sweet spot. I did sign up for Cathe Live, even though most of them are more than 45 min, thinking it might be the push I need. I adore Cathe and the workouts have been good, but having close to 400 choices is too much for me, even with helpful lists from other VFers. I won't be renewing when my 3 months is up. So I am hoping that Lift and Shift, along with my Cathe Lite and ICE DVDs, and hopefully her new series, will be enough to give me a push.

Oh geez, now I went and clicked on the link and watched the previews, and there's a sparkling sunny pool and palm trees in the background! (side note: is this the same room that is in the Walk Strong series? I think it's just been painted since those. [But why does this even occur to me or matter though?])

Considering I look at grey skies and snow and then mud for six months out of the year, I may have to just get these now! I had no idea that was the background. I'm not usually a Jessica weight fan, but I certainly am a Jessica with a sunny background fan!

This thread has sparked my interest

I was wondering if the workouts could be done with resistance bands only?

Since my husband semi-retired, we spend a lot of the summer in the RV and I found it easier just to bring a variety of bands rather than haul around a set of dumbbells.
