Yeah, if they're just getting started I'd keep the "as many as you can" exercises out of it. How about 3 days a week a set 20 min. on the elliptical, and then try to up the distance (or speed for the same distance) each week, and pick a small number (like 10 pushups and 15 situps) to do halfway through to break it up. And then after a month or two you can up it to 5 days a week (but don't tell them that yet.)
