I loved the 30 day challenge. I got to know different workouts. I got to see how changing the workout every day helped different parts of my body. And I loved how much better my body felt. It got me thinking that maybe it’s not health problems I have, but lack of exercise problems, because after exercising every day for only 10 days, I felt much more strong, lithe, fit and flexible. Maybe I don’t need all those supplements. Maybe I need to do Essentrics every day instead. -Alice
I just completed your 60 – Day Challenge (starting January 2015)! What? You didn’t know about your 60 – Day Challenge? Well, it’s the expanded version of your recent 30 – Day Challenge. For the first 30 days, I followed your schedule for the Beginner level and t he second 30 days, I followed the schedule for the Regular level. I just finished it yesterday and didn’t miss a day. Last year, I purchased most of the Essentrics and Classical Stretch DVDs (thank you for the bundles pricing and for your sales!). My plan is that this is my exercise program for life, and I want to absorb all the wisdom that Miranda and Sahra share about the benefits of exercise and proper form. I love the message that we can chronologically age but keep ourselves physically strong and flexi ble. That’s my goal, and I thank you for the daily encouragement and for providing the tools to accomplish that goal. Your program is challenging yet doable, with beautiful flowing movements. Who wouldn’t want to work your exercises into her life? It’s pure pleasure with a feeling of accomplishment! I appreciate that you pack a wide variety of exercises into a short period of time so that there’s no excuse to fit one workout into my day, each and every day. Thank you for all you do. I’m so glad I found you,and I look forward to seeing you every day. -Linda
I’m 58 years old and this is the first time I have exercised 30 days in a row! In fact, I’m on day 33 in a row now. I’m making steady progress, and love I how feel after the workout! I really appreciated the program being set out for me. It can be hard to choose from all the options each day. With the 30 day challenge I felt that I was getting a balanced program through each week. I look forward to the next challenge! As Miranda says, “See you again tomorrow!”
I wanted to give you some feedback on your 30 day challenge from January 2016 – it was absolutely wonderful. My sister and I both did it and told several people how great it was. I t hink by setting up a program for us we are assured of getting a very balanced type of monthly workout. I found it much more enjoyable than looking at them all and trying to decide which session to do. -Marnie
I discovered Classical Stretch in December 2016, when I stumbled upon it at 5 a.m. on a PBS station. I started doing it along with Miranda and fell in love with it, so I was excited to do the 30-Day Challenge! I didn’t miss a single day, and I can feel a difference in my body. Muscle tension and tightness are easily released and I’ve built muscle tone in my thighs and upper arms. I’ve decided to keep going and turn my 30-Day Challenge into a 60-Day one. Then 90 days, etc.! Thank you for Classical Stretch/Essentrics. I’m especially grateful for Sahra; she’s an excellent instructor because her explanations help me get into and keep the correct form for the movements. -Sarah Decapua
I’ve been a subscriber for a number of months now to ETV and have been doing an Essentrics workout almost daily. I participated in the Health Challenge and loved it. It got me to try other types of workouts and made my workouts more well-rounded (as I work to be LESS well-rounded! lol). I’ve noticed a difference in my body. Especially my legs and my butt. I’m 58 years old and have the mid drift area issue as my biggest challenge. I’ve always been physically active and find the belly bulge a real issue. Thank and you and please continue all that you do! I’m looking forward to the next challenge. -Cheryl D. Massachusetts
