  • Easiest to follow dvd for seniors?

    I've been thinking of getting my mother an SF or More 1 or HHMM. Which one do you feel is easier to follow? Is More 1 still considered safe for seniors without the new tweaks?

    ?My mom is more active than me and has better stamina/endurance:at 72. She walks a lot everyday. I have been asking her to add more exercises for her bone health. But she may have trouble following or understanding the instructions/cues, T-Tapp will be strange for her. And adding new tweaks to More 1 may be too much trouble for her.

    I am also considering introducing her to More than Workout, HH docu and the More mini workouts first.

    Any thoughts?

    TIA!
    As I always say, T-Tapp is God-Given and God Guided. I am honored to have the opportunity to share what's been gifted to me. There is so much more woven within each of the T-Tapp exercise and special sequences within the workouts than just a means to lose inches and look good......

    So good luck....just do your personal best and you WILL continue to repair/rebuild from the inside out and your body will continue to look, feel and FUNCTION better too. - Teresa (April 12, 2018)

    As you know, I like SF a lot, but I know that some persons don't like it at first...Maybe More 1 is a secure and classic card so to say. Hoping that Trisch or Ayj will chime in. To begin T-tapping, HHMM could be a little trickier. Just my ten cents.

      Thanks for sharing AlisaJDrury. I do not have SF so I am relying on other people's experiences.

      GreenGem,

      I thought of something though. Although I felt SF was harder than More 1, I felt more results right away with SF (does that make sense?). Also, the parts I do not like about More 1 is the bending over, which is not in SF so maybe modify More 1 if she cannot do the bending or modify SF so it is doable.

      Yea, thanks, those are the best options for now. At the very least she can use the mini-workouts in More 1. If her intenet is good.enough for the digitals, I will consider the First Steps, too and split like SF.

    I would definitely introduce her to the seminars first. MORE 1 would be good but there are times she will have her head lower than her heart which is what Senior Fit avoids. If she has no heart, blood pressure or dizziness issues, she might be okay. Senior Fit is the gem of all 3 of those workouts and is slower paced. Of course it's longer, too! But you could help her split it up if she would be open to it.

    HHMM has been considered a "starter" workout in the past but it does move a bit faster than Senior Fit and MORE 1.

    Not sure if I helped or confused more!

      Oh, btw, I realized PPW can be good starter dvd for men (erhm, my brothers). It has a seminar and a separate form tips video, sooooo I do not have to explain a lot or hand them more than 1 dvd.

      Trisch,

      Do you think SF is slower than More 1? (Dumb question, you of all would know LOL) Well, I only did More 1 instructional so... I guess I felt like although SF may be slower, it seemed more invasive. Does that make sense?

      Even when I only did 3-4 moves of SF I was tanked

    Yup, Senior Fit is designed to be safe to even old and frail and it will not be an issue for 99% of the population except it is long. I wonder if the Basic Superset is consider a starter program.

      Alisa, you are following into the trap of thinking Senior Fit is easy... Senior Fit is safe for old and frail and it cuts out all the possible injuries and blood rushing to the head moves... Because it is designed of senior as someone who has not done any workout for 30-50 years, Senior Fit is tweaked to prevent the path of resistance (that is lazy and goofy form and activation). So, even people who does not activate well can have results.

      So, when people who has some muscles, who has some form doing Senior Fit, it is difficult... Senior Fit is challenging to trainers and experienced T-Tapper alike. We never say Senior Fit is easy, we say Senior Fit is easier to follow because it is slow. We say Senior Fit is safe for Senior.

      AYJ, Duh me...I get it now. That makes total sense. I truly LOVE you ladies and your incredible knowledge and support. I have seen you say SF was hard for you and you did it for a long while to master it. Thank you for clarifying. I do like that it repeats the sequence multiple times so I am hoping once I am able to complete More 1 with no back pain, I will go back to SF and work on that for a while.

      Oh our wonderfully powerful SF, ladies! I am so thankful for that workout.

    Trisch and Aurora, Speaking of digital, is First Steps 1 consideted a starter program? Or is it meant to be used after SF or another wo?

      Yes, First Step was created after Senior Fit, as Senior Fit was still too difficult for some people to use, especially people already sustained some old injuries for decades. That is pretty much the beginning and the gap of the Fascia Fitness. First Step is the first step we fix the pain and the injuries first. So, it can be treated as the remedial for Senior Fit or instructional for Senior Fit...

      Menopause Management is for the hormonal and adrenal fatigue.

      Of course, as Teresa develops more, the more fascia effect is added in... She ramped it up according to the people she beta test her moves with, AKA during the retreats and various free classes that she has from time to time. Her brain and her R&D does not stop...

      I heard jokes about if Teresa got sick and had to stay at home for a few days, after the few days, she came up with moves and tweaks even more powerful than before.

      Really good information to know. I can at least check out the trial version with her and help her compare with SF. I'll benefit, too.

      Was there ever a dvd edition of First Step 1?

      I did not think it was possible, but you made me more amazed of Teresa. If I someday meet her in person and get all flustered and faint, I will think of you Aurora.

    Dorky me forgot I have More 2. I finally read the whole dvd and realized in the SF style wo, Berei's head does not go down as far as Teresa in PBS. Plus, it has the mini workouts that I think she will love!

    Caveat: My dvd skips at RS part no matter which player I use. No visble scratches, and the rest of the dvd plays well. I will contact office and see if they have a fix.
    Update: Just got off the phone with Jennifer. She is sending a replacement dvd!

      GreenGem about the skipping. My HHDocumentary or Seminar (we got free last month) did this. It would just end after Debbie's (I think) testimony and go to the page with the single testimonies. I wiped it off really good and it was fine after that, played all the way through. Just a thought!!

      Thanks Alisa, I tried cleaning it, too. I get an error message with a segment number, etc. But all my other purchases are fine. Awesome customer support!!!

    Trisch and Aurora,
    1) Could there be any concerns an active senior may need to watch out for in More 2 Berei segment? My untrained eye does not see any, lol.

    2) Right now I am leaning on asking my mom to ignore the More 2 instructional and workout and just stick to the SF style segment or mini workouts, is that wise?

    3) Also, any portion of workout can be adapted to chair, right? For example, if the plies are too much she can hold the plie or sit on a chair (good form as dictated in the chair wo section) and continue the upper body movements.

    4) Lastly, now I know that digital is out of consideration, are the First Step Fascia Fitness or 2016 Retreat Fascia Fitness dvds can also be considered instructional for SF? Or are they higher level meant only after SF and/or the FS series?

    Thank you as always!

      Going in reverse order-

      #4 Senior Fit is its own workout and the foundation for Fascia Fitness and the Retreat level dvds.

      #3 Yes, any portion can be adapted. Well, Oil Wells might be a bit harder...

      #2 and #1--I would need to watch it again to remember the differences. It's still going to be very good, but there may be more head-going-lower-than-the-heart than in the final Senior Fit.

      Thanks again for all your recommendations. I will be getting the SF for my mother, the safest dvd but long. I will introduce her to the seminar and mini-workouts from More first, to familiarize while making sure she is not lowering her head too much. Then when she's comfortable I will help her split the SF.

      Guess who answered the phone.... Berei! I was so flustered I forgot to order right there ... I'll just do it online.

      update: I printed the SF page and review from beyouthfulnfit.com. I realized I need to study SF to help my mom get started.

        Thanks ladies. I will probably get a good idea after a month or so. Generally, she likes walking outdoors, but uses a short walking dvd when weather is not so nice. It was one of the popular ones that I worry might hurt her knee. I hope she'll see the T-Tapp advantage via the More step away quickly.
