    Would love to purchase a cardio chair DVD. Will be having foot surgery in near future. Loved yours but see it’s only available on you tube. Appreciate any suggestions.
    Thank You

    hi Jessica. I love your chair workout but despite lots of attempts to get over it, just can’t work with the “music” which really kind of disturbs me. I tried turning it way down but then I can’t hear your instructions. I think YOU are great though, and so is Peanut!

    Where do I buy the DVD? For the chair workout?

    I broke my ankle two days ago, and my first thought, even before I’d opened my eyes to see the damage, was that I wouldn’t be able to go to the gym, and would lose my fitness. Have just done your chair workout for the first time, and I think it’ll really help maintain my fitness and prepare me for rehabilitation when the cast comes off. Thank you so much!

    Hi Jessica, love your videos and highly recommend to friends and family. Your kickboxing workout has been my most popular pin on pinterest! My question to you is, do you have or plan to do family workout where children can be involved? Thanks for all you do!
