Certified instructor description:
Easy-to-follow exercises designed to prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis. DVT is an often fatal condition caused by long periods of inactivity (ranging from sickness and injury recovery to long car or plane rides). The program begins with DVT background information and warning signs. The actual workout is a series of circulation-focused movements. Mostly seated, some standing, they include leg circles, deep stretches and heel-toe lifts. The DVD ends with a demonstration of four simple exercises that can be done anywhere (e.g. in the car or at your desk). Mary Ann Wilson, star of the PBS fitness series, is a friendly, low-key instructor. ©2010.
