  • Well I tried my best – I couldnt do as much as you were asking especially with the burpees, going down on knees and standing up and I couldnt do the sitting down on the step so instead I did some squats. But I am so so so unfit!!!!! Putting it mildly. One question, what would you recommend before and after the workout with warming up and cooling down?

  • Phew! Got me a bit sweaty there for only 15 min!!
    Is there any alternative for the deadlifts and kettlebell swing? I may be doing it wrong as I feel it in my lower back straight away. FYI I have scoliosis.

  • First workout done! Don’t have my step yet so had to improvise! My lunges and balance need work for sure. Great to get started

  • Done and dusted. Did 30min fast walk first and then the workout. Wow it was great. Tough in spots as so unfit at the moment. Can’t wait to get stuck in. I have reformer pilates tomorrow but I will do tm workout as well

  • Too wet to go for my walk this morning so I chose to do this workout. I wanted to learn again the press up and lunge technique….sweaty start to the weekend and it feels great

  • Very tough to begin exercising after a long time of being inactive really.
    Delighted to have started the programme and looking forward to the support I need to keep going.

  • Only getting started with beginners week
    I was working 3 12 hr shifts so getting going now. I enjoyed that workout thanks Jessica
    I need to get the workbook printed and get a steper.
    Looking forward to getting fit.

  • I was shocked at how unfit I was!
    I started with 1kg weights as I found the 2kg tough and I have scoliosis so I would prefer to take it slow and easy with my back..

  • Thanks for this workout and the tips. I am remembering the form on some of these exercises and some are new to me. Am looking forward to the next one.

  • Workout 1 done. I found some of the burpee & worm exercises difficult as I have a slight hamstring injury so I’ll go with it and just use the step if necessary. Thanks Jessica

  • Done it! I was surprised I struggled with the sit/stand up exercise. A simple exercise that you should not underestimate. Overall, get introduction to exercise.

  • Found using the step the better of the exercises.. adapted all the exercises to suit my complete non-fitness! Didn’t use the weights for all the exercises. Not able to do the get up off the floor unaided. Used the arm of the armchair for the squats. A long way to go…but have made a start!

  • I thought I knew all the exercises from before, but now realise this refresher was critical!!! Also realise, while I can run 5km, I have so little.body strength…alot of work to do!!

  • Well it’s great to be back, I think I have started to stir some very dormant muscles! Thanks Jessica… Slow and steady! ( my new motto )
