    Thanks for the inspiration. You keep me motivated at the ripe old age of 58. You (and your mom) are amazing!

    (I’m doing the 21 day workout) but I thank you for the encouragement. I love, “Sweat is your fat crying. Let it bawl!” I laughed out loud over that and plan to have sobbing fat because of your workouts. Lol. ????

    Thank you, Jessie. I love all those quotes! I’ve been doing your 15 days workout and September challenge since I subscribed. I’ve been exercising for many years but this time I’ve decided to lose 5kg to make myself a lot happier. I still keep 10km running 5-6 days a week and yoga every day but I get bored with many cardio videos (not the yoga that I do, though) that I was doing.. My diet aside, I seriously need to gain some muscle and lose fat and you know what… I love your workout!!! Each video clip makes me feel want to exercise and doesn’t bore me at all! Your energy and explanation and what you do in those videos are fantastic! Thank you!

    I love all the quotes …I turned 59 this August…I’m pretty active and I eat pretty healthy,but I was not constant. I fell in April and fractured my neck and was sideline for 3months…when the neck braces came off I could bearly move my neck and upper body. I started looking for some yoga exercises and came across your vidoes. They are wonderful. I’m moving more each day. I’m not perfect or even look pretty doing some of these moves lol! But I’m moving again..thank you for some fun motivating work outs..59 and still moving

    Great tips for when I lack motivation. I’m following your exercise workouts here in England, United Kingdom. They have made such a difference not only to my physical well being but also my mental attitude is more positive now too. Thanks so much for your efforts to get us fitter all around the globe!

    Thank you!
