The series is divided into three separate DVD programs. The first focuses on the pelvis, the second on the upper body, and the third on the core.

These are gentle exercises that produce impressive results.

"A lifetime of bad postural habits, sitting behind a desk and ignored injuries had turned my body into a crooked, stiff mess. A mess that couldn't do what I loved to do – ride. I can tell you with certainty that every ‘body’ - even mine – can improve. I say, 'even mine', because from the time I can remember, I was the world’s worst athlete," said Jennifer. 

The entire series focuses on increasing rider flexibility, strength and fluidity, all of which will improve your riding and your life. "Jennifer is every woman. As far as I'm concerned, Jennifer has discovered the fountain of youth! These exercises can all be done in the privacy of your own home, at your own pace. No matter how stiff or sore your body may feel, with these easy-to-do exercises, you can improve," said Bonnie.
