We started during lockdowns and we’re delighted to find exercises for all abilities and lots of different types. We loved HIIT, weights, stretching ….. no, actually we loved them all. And it doesn’t matter how long you’ve got as there’s lengths to suit all timescales.
Keep it up Meredith - WE LOVE YOU.
Hello Meredith, I thank you so very much for your excellent and professional exercise videos. I'm a Group Fitness instructor and teach Silver Sneakers classes. I find your approach to Senior Exercise inspiring, and I have learned alot about approaches to exercise for that age group from you. Thank you for all that you do!
Hello Meredith, I left a big thank you note for your wonderful exercise videos, around 9 months ago. My sister and I exercise together over zoom using your videos to guide us. We have now been doing this for a year and a half, 4-5 times a week. Today I noticed the "donate" tab on your website and I am happy to donate to your continued work, and will continue to do so. Your videos are a "gym membership" that I actually use. Keep up the great work. I have looked hard, but there really is no one else's senior exercise channel that comes close to the quality (in all ways) of what you produce.
Hi Meredith and team, first let me introduce myself. I am 84 years old. I have had both hips replaced and am fighting to keep my knees from going the same way, I have also suffered with lower back problems since the 1960s. I would like to tell everyone that, in spite of that, since starting to do your amazing classes regularly, I feel fitter now than I have for years. I started doing them at the beginning of Covid when I couldn't go to the local Sports Centre for my Aqua Aerobics sessions. I was doing a lot of walking, but that wasn't enough to keep me fit. Then I found your on-line classes and after just a few days of working out with you, I knew I had found what I needed. I have been going from strength to strength since then, I try to do at least 45mins. of your classes every day and I am back doing Aqua aerobics twice a week as well which is also very beneficial, in fact I realised the other day that I haven't taken any painkillers for well over a year, that has got to be a good thing. My mission is to get more elderly people to realise that it is never too late to start exercising, and if they keep it up, it really will make a difference, both physically and mentally. So, thank you Meredith, you are doing an incredible job.
Hello Meredith and everyone. I was so happy to find this channel because even though I have access to a fitness center I don't enjoy going..these exercise videos are perfect because the instructions are so clear and safe and the pace of the videos is good. I have a heart arrhythmia so I appreciate the flexibility that you encourage and saying "this is your workout"....and listen to your body. Thank you so much, Meredith, for what you do.
Hi Meredith. I found your channel on YouTube a year ago. I've started a few of your cardio workouts, as I am battling with Lumbar Spondylitis, Sciatica and Fibromyalgia. You're such a blessing to me. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to working out with you in the future, to help me heal. All the best to you and your Family for 2023. God bless you always. X
I find the senior chair exercises perfect for me. Meredith explains the routines very well with a pleasant voice and always with reminders to keep your posture and breath correctly. Furthermore, as I don't have much room in my lounge room I'm able to do the routines along with weights etc to add a challenge and cardio. Thank you.
Thank you for your work to aid Seniors live their best lives. I would like to share how you have improved my life: About 18 months ago I had a stroke affecting my vision and memory. I had to re-learn how to read, write, spell, type, compose my thoughts. I have vision cuts so coordination was challenging. Somehow I found you on YouTube and began with your lowest level workouts and have been working my way up to advanced. Initially, I could only workout for a brief time and because you have workouts for all lengths of time and energy I can now enjoy your hour sessions. Thank you so much for your focus on seniors and physically challenged adults. I truly believe you have had a major impact on my ongoing recovery....exercising and pushing my body has exercised and helped my brain and vision's continued recovery. My prognosis is great... Thank you...you have impacted the quality of my life. I can't find the words...thank you.
I'm so thankful for your channel Meredith! I have rheumatoid arthritis and cannot stand for long to do workouts. That's why I love your seated workouts so much! I have worked out with weights, bands, my body. I particularly love your arthritis and inflammation overall stretch and do it often. I can really feel a difference in my joints and pain levels.
Bless you and thank you Meredith for helping so many people with your wonderful channel.
Thank you so much for putting workout videos for those 55 and older. I'm working out more now at 59 than I did in my 20's. As a person with fibromyalgia, it's difficult for me to find a workout routine that I would be able to do. I do stretching work out as well as the resistance band workout, both sitting and standing. Thank you again so much!
A big thank you! I am on oxygen so being able to pick and choose my work out helps a lot. I cut back on my walking and added workouts. 👍😊
Again a big thank you
Hi, I never was much of a fan of physical fitness activities. When I was younger, it seemed not to matter.
As I grew older however, my weight increased every year and diets were short lasting solutions. My health and well-being going into my senior years (I will be 70 at the end of 2022), needed a fix. After a few failed attempts with other fitness coaches on YouTube, I found SFWM in August 2021. It checked all the boxes for me. Safety and precise instructions gave me the confidence to stick with this program. A plus for me is that Meredith is easy to listen to - her voice is calm and reassuring. I also like having the option of getting a 7 Day Custom Workout Plan. I'm on my second Plan and continuing to improve. I have conquered the "VStep", the double knee lift and many other things I thought I just could not do. I feel strong, healthy and I am closing in on my doctor approved weight goal. I actually enjoy working out now and love the stretches at the end.
Thank you SFWM for changing my attitude toward physical fitness and improving my life.
Hi. I have been following you for the last three years whilst trying to get some mobility back. 3 major operations since 2019 ( quad bypass and 2 spinal decompression) has meant that i am, all the time, playing catch up.
Aim is to get balance back so I can play golf again. Still doing nearly all exercises seated but trying hard.
Thank you for the routines.
I found this and love it. I struggle with mobility so i am glad you have seated workouts. My heart rate still comes up because of your variations. I love the hitt wokouts. I would like to see more seated cardio boxing if possible. I did the livecast today and even sitting i got warm. Thanks for all u do and i need to stay motivated. I have a job that requires sitting alot.
Hello, I just found your YouTube channel and i a so happy. I am 53 years young and have been exercising for the past 3 years now usually following trainers on YouTube. I have followed 2 mainly but was looking for something different…… I did not think to look under senior??? Was always looking at exercise for ladies over 50. Somehow and thankfully I have found you!!!!
I have been enjoying the different style of exercise you show. Starting off with a warm up and ending with a stretch is so lovely to find on the one sitting.
Definitely not just for senior people I tell you! In fact will be recommending you to my 24 year old daughter who has terrible knees and ankles from netball.
So thank you so much!!!
Keep up the fantastic workouts
I particularly like the No squat, no floor, no hop idea.
I would also include deep lunges in that sentence 🤣
Love the podcasts too.
Thank you from Sydney Australia
About two months ago I found your site and has done several of your videos every week x 4-5 days/wk. I must say that I enjoy your workouts tremendously and look forward to continuing to use them. However, I noticed that you have not been live a couple weeks. I know that it's Summer and you probably took a break. If so I hope that on your return you will have more Intermediate videos. I use other platforms too, but what is most remarkable about yours is your engagement with the audience during each step reminding us to breathe and use our core. Really appreciate the importance placed on those things. Thanks Meredith, you're awesome and knowledgeable about the body and its functions. I'm so happy I found your channel, and I have encouraged others to join you too, because the workouts are not only for seniors. I always look forward to working out with you. Thank you!
I, most fortunately, found your site on line a few weeks ago. As you mentioned in one of your podcasts your workouts are not exclusively designed for seniors, but as a senior I can attest to the considerable care you show for us who follow you. Your expertise is evident in all the exercises of the workouts; your enthusiasm and joy are, in whatever you do, nothing short of infectious; your encouragement and support are wonderful. Most of all your sincerity and concern for your ‘workout partners’ is most appreciated. Kindness and caring seems to be in short supply these days, I wish there were many more ‘Meredith’s’ in this world. Thanks so much, wishing you all those close to you good health and lots of success.
JUST FINISHED YOUR PODCAST ON ADDICTION TO EXERCISE.IT HIT THE SPOT.THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO AND I WILL REALLY TRY TO NOT BE SO HARD ON SELF WHEN I MISS A WORKOUT.PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOO WORK.
Back in early 2020 I was looking for a workout videos on YouTube since my gym started limiting amount of people in the gym. I came across Meredith. I did a couple and thought this is what I need. Well I was working out 3-4 times a week. The health issues cropped up with my husband and I didn’t get to as much but I did when time alotted. Then another issue came up my knee! Had knee replacement in May 2021. Now I had to learn how to workout after the ok from my doctor. I am not going to sugar coat it it’s very hard to workout like I did . Knee has a mind of its own when it feel good but I know I can try with different methods as Meredith shows or says you can do same movement doing it this way . Meredith has so many videos that there are days I want a stretch and warm up I find a video then I want resistance training you can find a video for that. I make sure I do 2 different classes in a day and take off a day or two. But Meredith is the best one out there. I looked once and came right back. You feel as if she is your personal trainer. Email and ask any question and she always answers. For never meeting her I know she’s just the same as she comes across her videos. Thank you also for in your live videos you stop and take the time to read what is posted and say “Hi” to all who posted live for that video. That’s very special.Meredith you made everyone feel welcomed and encouraged all of us we can do it . It may take time but you will be doing this movement and you’ll remember when you couldn’t even do half of that movement. So from me and I’m sure all of us who follow you we send a very much deserved THANK YOU for all your time making and editing videos and energy to make us all feel special and getting us off our couches! Well I will end my special message to Meredith!👍🏋🏻♀️
So enjoy your work outs Meredith thank you! I’m improving with each session find your instructions easy to follow and most importantly find your sessions fun! Love to Tyson too!
