Could be everyone here is sort of right on this. It probably IS a sign of our demise that this is considered a workout routine, and that it would be challenging to a disappointingly large number of people. On the other hand, I'd be thrilled if my obese, diabetic, sedentary mother started on this program. A regular schedule, with some progression and goals in mind. These "baby steps" are all some people can handle; and yeah, you gotta start somewhere.

i've been working with kidney dialysis patients for a while now. i have to do a test in which they walk 20 ft and i time it. for some patients, this is quite the challenge. i could see this being necessary for many people recovering from degenerative episodes.

at the same time, it is annoying to think that there will be people who follow this who do not have a serious a disease like ESRD. maybe they should just make Wii Walk.

in terms of warm ups, i think they loosen up with a few malteses and flags.
