Thank you Meredith for your dedication and workouts. I’ve been doing your workouts for a few years now and love them. Unfortunately I have an avulsion fracture of the fibula (I stumbled up stairs and twisted my ankle). I am currently in a moon boot😔 and am unable to do anything weight bearing on my ankle. It’s only been 12 days (and at least 2 weeks to go before I can bear weight on (with moon boot) and feel I’m loosing body strength .
Are you able to recommend some gentle workouts you have to keep me going (obviously seated)
Your advice would be much appreciated.
I turned 69 last year and I'm looking forward to saying I'm 70! My health issues have followed me my entire life after a TBI at 7, add in scoliosis, fibromyalgia since 1978, and 11 car accidents (non my fault) , you can imagine the condition of my spine. Yet I always tried to exercise, finding long distance speed walking in my 20-30s until a bad rear-end car accident put me out of commission by damaging my SI joints. I've been in and out of PT since I was 16. At age 30 they said I had the back of a 60 yr old, so now is it 90? I just keep on trucking! I discovered you back in 2020 and have progressed slowly to harder classes. After 4 surgeries in 14 months, I had to start over again last year, but that's the beauty of your website!! I just searched for easy lessons and started building up again slowly. I tell everyone about you! What I wanted to share with you is how my PT therapist was impressed when he assigned me a new exercise and I said that I'm already doing that with Meredith in her bar ballet pilates class. He asked what else are you teaching us, and I showed him some of the moves. He said "Those are great keep it up." He really liked the one where we lift our knee and go out and then bring it back in. So good job Meredith! I'll keep sticking to it, so you too! Thank you for all you've done.
All I can say thank you Meredith from the bottom of my heart. Two years ago I had knee issues and body weakness. Ever since I started watching your videos and doing chair exercises with weights and bands. The stretches.
I feel more flexible and stronger.My favorite is the glutes workout every night on the bed.
I would love to see you come up with a video on plantar fasciitis.
I'm 59 years old and have never been so motivated to exercise in my life!! They have given me focus and a feeling of accomplishment something I desperately needed after losing my dad suddenly in November of 2022. I've now been working out to them at least 4 days a week for the last year. Just know you are making a difference. God bless you💕💕
My friends and I have been enjoying Meredith's exercise videos for the past 18 months. We feel like we have our own personal trainer. Thank you for all that you do to help seniors stay healthy, we especially appreciate your directions on correct form for weight training.
I start most days with Meredith and have done so since January 2022. Thanks to Meredith, my 7 Day Plan and the wide variety and range of exercises on her website, I cruised through surgical recovery, seated and finally standing. I can tell I am building some muscle and getting stronger (and I turn 70 in a few months).
And I have learned to do the seated stretches throughout the day to keep me limber . Meredith will always respond and help with any questions. She has become a dear friend to me even though we have never met.
I am 70 years old (african american male) and have been using your workouts for two years now. I do a thirty minute row along with ten minutes of weights every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I workout with one of your videos for the entire month changing to a different video each month. I've had arthritis in my back and knees since I left the military in 1989 and your senior workouts have helped me keep it in check and well as helping maintain my overall health. I've looked at other senior websites, but yours is the best. Thank you. I always recommend you to my other senior friends and family.
I’m so grateful for the workouts and inspirational encouragement. They have been a positive inspiration in my life and has kept me motivated to stay in motion in my senior years. Thank you! 😊
After filling out a detailed form I purchased a 7 day program from Meredith. It takes all the guess work out of what exercise is best for me to speak to my objectives. There are a variety of choices each day so I can pick a session to my liking. My objective is weight loss and build muscle mass and happy to report I did achieve my weight loss goal and then some in just a couple of months. I sense my muscle tone is improving as well. I am a 73 year old senior and thrilled to have found a fun fitness program that has become part of my daily life. It’s been a long time since I felt this good about myself and I owe it all to Meredith.
I am 83 years old and lifted weights when I was younger. Have arthritis in my knees and other places and went to PT for a time. I do 2 or 3 of your routines one day and the PT exercises the next. My hope is to strengthen my supporting muscles and lose some more weight so that I can avoid surgery. I walk about 7,500 steps a day in good weather, but when snow is on the ground, I still get in an hour a day. Thank you.
I have been with Meredith since January 2022. I knew I needed extensive surgery in my left foot and was worried about not getting sufficient daily movement, ( I have been a teacher for nearly 30 years and used to being very active)
I found seated exercises with Meredith on YouTube and started learning how to do safe exercises from a chair.
I can’t imagine a week without Meredith. My surgery was successful and I am back to school part time, but still exercise with Meredith at least 5 days a week, and I can do standing ones now! She has been a constant friend and comfort. Her exercises are designed for everyone, no matter their circumstances. You can find just what you need to stay healthy and fit. And she is always available if you need support. Her individual 7 day plan is terrific! Thank you, Meredith, for everything!
I am 62 and was diagnosed pre diabetic in February. That was my aha moment and decided to lose some weight and become physically stronger. I have had 2 challenges this year foot surgery and arthritis pinching my spinal nerve stem causing numbness. Finding your videos has been fantastic especially the seated only ones with weights and bands. Slowly the weight has been coming off down 40lbs now my first goal is 10 more away then I will set another. I have enjoyed them so much I shared with my Zoom weight loss group and you now have many women here in Southern Ontario motivated and getting fitter! Thank you for your encouragement and enthusiasm.
Meredith: I just came out of a terrible flu week. I felt tired and in low energy. I restarted with "Everyday Workout Routine For Seniors And Beginners - Cardio, Abs (Core) & Balance | 15 Min" and followed next day with "Senior Fitness 'Get Back On Track" Full Body Easy Workout For Beginners | No Equipment | 26 Min". I got, indeed, back on track. Last friday I could do a HIIT video, and today I will follow your new Livestream Class. Thank you for the marvelous collection you have been adding through the years. It is a wonderful gift for all our community. Bless you and your team.
I am an81 year old man and have tried many of the exercise programs on line but yours is the best I have found and I do one of them each AM. I always feel so much better after I finish. Thank you very much for taking time to make the videos.
Dear Meredith, I am so grateful to God that I found you! I have done your videos for about a year and consider you my personal coach. I love how you gently encourage us and teach us to take care of our older selves, to pay attention to "what's available" today. I think you are great! Thank you so much for all your work!
Love your videos, Meredith! Just keep doing what you do so well!
I’ve done a few of the exercise videos and they are awesome! I am do them in the comfort of my family room. I love all the different topics that are covered! Thank you
Just want to say a HUGE thank you for your videos on YouTube. About six months ago Malcolm started suffering from sciatica and life was not worth living!!!!
Not one for exercising normally but being in so much pain, he resorted to googling treatments ..... and there you were!! What a transformation, he still only does the sciatica video(!), but I enjoy several of them. We are both approaching 76 and with your help are getting more supple, strong and well balanced (literally!) with every session. In fact we echo every word that Stella Hazell also from Wales wrote on 29/12/22, what an inspiration. So many, many thanks Meredith you make a world of difference from Lynne and Malcolm
Always enjoy your workouts. Love your smile!
