JumpStart 180 Review

I got this and wanted my dad to try this out. Here are his words:

Jumpstart 180
First let me tell you something about myself. I am 67 years of age and somewhat over weight. I have had a right rotator cuff repaired (surgery). I do have some issues with my left rotator cuff. I can no longer do any pushups. I used to do 1 per second for 60 seconds. I am sure my shoulder and ankle issues are from the over whelming hard work I did during my 20 years in the USAF removing and re-installing jet engines in the Phantom F4  fighter aircraft.
Jumpstart 180 is produced by Dr. Siobhan France, Dr. of Physical Therapy and Wellness coach. She is committed to helping many to reduce their pain, improve their strength and endurance to their level of function before their injury and maximize their quality of life.
Jumpstart 180 consists of a pack of 4 DVDs in a booklet style case. You will also get an easy to read 18 page 6" x 9" booklet with simple instructions and a chart to track your progress. I would suggest to make a couple of copies of the chart because it is suggested that you follow this Jumpstart program for 4 weeks. There is also a section talking about your heart rate and where it should be during these exercises. So far I had no heart rate issues. Ages displayed are 50 to 80 years of age.
That being said, I believe DVD 1 of 4 will help both of my shoulders. The exercises can be done by most senior citizens.  Should you have any issues, you do not have to follow the instructor exactly. There are many ways you can modify these simple exercises (as instructed by the instructor Dr. Siobhan France) so you can get the desired benefits from each exercise.
I briefly took a quick look at DVD 2. It has all to do with bettering of your balance. I do have some issues with my balance from time to time. I know what I briefly saw, will help me with those issues.

Each DVD is approximately 30 minutes long. Longer if you need to pause it for any reason. The instructor suggests that you pause the DVD if needed for any reason. I did not have to pause DVD 1 but everyone is different and after all Jumpstart 180 is for seniors from 50 to 80 years of age and we all have various issues and these DVDs are to help us with those senior issues. Actually anyone with mobility issues can receive benefits from Dr. Siobhan France Jumpstart 180 program.
