What people are saying...
This video was released October 10, 2000. Following are some of the comments we've received:
American Fitness Magazine (excerpt from May/June, 2003 issue):
By the look on his fact, his
program obviously works for him - he's the first t'ai chi teacher I've seen who wears
a huge smile from start to finish."
C.S., OH, October, 2003 "I purchased The Works a few months ago. Your programs have changed the lives of my husband and myself. I am sure you get that a lot. Thank you also for your efforts. We are really different people now. Nick stopped smoking right before we started the videos. He stopped many times before but became so stressed out that he would start up again. Now, when he gets anxious he just relaxes into the routine and the craving diminishes.
The only one I really have trouble with is balancing on one leg.
I really started improving when I watched your segment on 'walking
on stones in a stream'. When I am having problems I practice walking through the house
that way. It has really helped strengthen my knees and leg muscles."
B.Davis, OR, September, 2003
"(After practice), I am extremely happy and ready to face the day. (4
Minute Fitness offers) a new way of looking at life in general. I love celebrating every day. I love your way of putting a positive thought
with each breath. It is much more
enjoyable and beneficial.

I found your video very informative
and easy to follow
I found your video very informative and easy to follow. These exercises are easy to learn and can be done anywhere almost any time."
"I do the video 2-3 times daily, usually in the evening, completing it and starting
it again. Immediately after completing a session, I feel physically and mentally
relaxed and focused, and I feel more energy too. I have chronic
sinus problems, and my sinuses and nasal passages feel clear and I am breathing easily. I
feel refreshed and renewed. "
P.C., September, 2003 "Your tape is so easy and relaxing to watch!"
L.D, FL, September, 2003
"You are such a good teacher that I am understanding moves and concepts that
otherwise would have made no sense to me. You have an exceptional ability to
instruct and guide others."
"Wonderful! I feel full, flushed, focused,
centered, balanced, confident, and buoyant. Helps flexibility, adjusts attitude,
deepens breathing, circulates blood and increases energy flow. My wife even uses
4-Minutes before her tennis games very important to her!"
C.Shanks, Manitoba, August, 2003
"It's wonderful. Sometimes I wake-up in the morning feeling groggy or generally like crap, but as soon as I complete the exercises, I'm refreshed, in a positive mood, and ready for the day. The same is true at the end of the day.
You know what long days are like they take the starch right out of you, both physically and emotionally. The good news is that the exercises never fail to refresh and revitalize me.
The most lasting benefit I've found so far over time is a sense
of peace. Things that bothered me a year or two ago don' t seem to bother me
anymore. I'm a lot more easy going and relaxed, both physically and in my outlook
Keith Jeffery should be cloned, there should be many more like you teaching
health, beauty, love, how to improve body and mind, maybe there would be less war
and less mental and physical illness."
K. Barclay, LA, August, 2003
really love the 4 Minute Fitness and do it most every day. I only miss doing it
occasionally. It makes you feel so good inside and out."
"Love your two DVD's. My son and I are both practicing technique and its a nice atmosphere to be together in.
I was recently complaining of lower back problems to my doctor and he said, "Hey, your 50. Try something that's not too aerobic with more emphasis on stretching. Your DVD was just the ticket.
I especially like the endorphin release that
comes with the combination of stretching and mental imaging. It actually works!
"Beautifully choreographed! I think we all
need to heal from something. There is no such thing as a perfect body/mind in my view so
the tapes are universally useful."
"I've totally fallen in love with it!
I am waking up with an optimistic attitude
instead of "oh no not another day" and I am sleeping better. After 30 days, I must say that things have steadily improved and I am very impressed."
just started the 4 Minute Fitness, and it is wonderful!"
A. Speaker, PA, April 2003
"How beneficial your workout
is for the mind & soul. Thank you."
"Please send me another video. We
love it and want to share one with our family."
M. Weber, OH, March, 2003 "I received the video and was excited about what I had read but also a little hesitant because so many exercise videos are too boring or too stressful. Your video is GREAT - I immediately found myself glued to the TV - the beginning of the video is very motivating and then you go into each and every detail regarding the program.
THANK YOU - its a wonderful program. I feel better already. The breathing exercises have helped my asthma (beginning stages) and the slow movement exercises are so much fun.
ON A SCALE FROM 1 - 10 - I GIVE YOU A 10
"I have three words to define your videos -
wonderful, wonderful, wonderful"
"Today we did the 4 Minute Fitness and
honestly, I feel as though I've taken a quantum leap. Great product!"
"Just bought your "Four Minute" exercise and "Tai
Chi for Busy People" and my wife and I love them. The Four Minute
exercises have given my sixty eight year old wife a good feeling of well being and has
improved her balance. My seventy four year old body is in good shape and I but do enjoy
doing the exercises with her. If I were younger I would be first in line to take your
instructors courses. I studied Tai Chi some years ago and it is nice to see and
use an effective, but simple form of the art."
"I am loving it!!! Not only is it
good for my body... it is sanctuary for my soul and food for my mind. THANK
YOU!!! You are very inspiring and bring a peace and quiet dignity to that short
I bought your video " 4 Minute Fitness", and I fell in love with Tai Chi.
Now I want to buy your video " Tai Chi for Busy People"."
been working with the "4 Minute Workout" tape. I love it. I do the
exercises all through the day (sometimes 5 or 6 times a day). Very easy to do
anytime and anyplace ... and I always feel great afterwards."
"I have some comments for you that you can feel free to post on
your web site as a testimonial. The videotape was produced well, and the movements are
easy. You don't have to spend a lot of time learning intricate poses, which put me off
from learning tai chi in the past. This will definitely be a daily practice for me."
The movements I'm now doing ( with your instruction ) have helped me tremendously already. I'm finding much less pain in my back, I know my balance is better and I am finding that I take more fulfilling ( much deeper ) breaths more often. This is the only type of exercise I've been able to do since my third back operation and I am enjoying it very much."
S. Carver, Missouri, July, 2002
"I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the video. I
know enough about yoga and tai chi to appreciate how much thought and expertise went into
choosing the exercises. I especially appreciate the emphasis on shoulder opening since
this is a problem area for me and most of my patients. Also, I appreciated you
showing how to do each exercise sitting down."
"Thank you for such an easy to follow and enjoyable video. I'm starting with 4 minute fitness and feel encouraged and refreshed and more positive as I start to make the changes I need to make to improve my health."
J. Edwards, BC, June, 2002
have begun my 4 Minute T'ai Chi, and yes it is great. I do this early in the morning, and
It does start my day off in a positive way. Once again, I can not relay how much I really
needed something easy to do and understand, this is the best medicine one could take. I
plan to continue with this for a very long time."
"I am a paraplegic. I turned mental cartwheels when you did the exercises from a
sitting position. It was so awesome. I am absolutely adoring the program! I would
seriously recommend this program for anyone with a disability such as paralysis.
It's easy and it WORKS. After going through the moves ONCE I felt a difference. Your
product has answered a prayer."
"I personally do a lot of exercises and yoga, I find the 4 minute routine very quick and comfortable for me to do, since I'm 56 and have had a few sports injuries in the past."
D. Zimms, Guam, April, 2002
"I have been
practicing 4 Minute Fitness everyday since I left Tokyo and the Asst. Principal's
Conference in January. I no longer feel stiff. My muscles and joints feel
flexible, toned and relaxed. Thank you!!"
L. Drummond, BC, March, 2002
enjoy your sense of humor (humor is a tool I use in my life to combat stress,
pain and other unavoidable unpleasantries) and the simple way you break down the magical
movements.... Moderate movement like the Easy tai Chi and 4 minute Fitness, I like
"I would just like to extend my gratitude to Dr. Keith's team and in creating the video which I believe could help millions! I'm one of them.... Whenever panic/anxiety attacks me during a stressful day in the office, I would go inside our office's bathroom and do the 4-minute fitness and I would come out refreshed and calm."
Eric, United Arab Emirates, February, 2002 "I just got your 2 tapes last evening as a late Christmas present to myself. I did the 4-Minute Exercise Video and loved it. Exactly what I am needing in this part of my life. I just wanted to drop you a line and say "Thank You" for the super videos. How better to get your life back under control then by doing exercises with affirmations. May God Bless you for all the "smiles" and good health you have spread around the planet."
K. Jones, Kansas, December, 2001
"I was given your
tape as a gift. I have severe FM at times crippling. I want you to know I have regained
much of my balance. I want to thank your from my heart."
I showed my class your 4 Minute Fitness video and everyone
loved it and asked me to play it a few times more. It continues to help me
enormously and fits into my lifestyle very well."
"I received the 4 Minute Fitness and I am enjoying very
much using it. It is really easy and fun to do. There are times when you read comments of
this kind, they seem too good to be true. But in this case, all the positive
comments I read about the tape are real."
"I love the 4 Minute Video. I have several yoga and
t'ai chi videos, but there is nothing out there that makes you feel so good so fast. I can
hardly wait to show my family your wonderful video. I am so impressed!"
I love the 4 Minute routine - it was simple
to learn and very relaxing... my four year old has been joining in so that is a definite
plus. Thanks again."
"This is something I'll do for life. I'm happy
and healthy for the first time in 15 years!"
"The tapes are great, informative, easy to
follow, and very well thought out."
"I love your video - and the locations it was
filmed. I am so glad I found your site on the net."
"I received the tapes as order, and after reviewing
them, I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED with their content!!! Your demonstration of
technique is excellent and I feel that I am doing the moves in a competent manner. And
thanks for the reminders to smile :)"
"I was instantly transported to one of the beautiful
locations in your video... the transformation brought about by even those couple
of minutes of visualization and meditative motion made a significant impact.I am
really enjoying what you are teaching me. Thank you."
"Just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed your using
your 4 Minute (sometimes extended) Fitness workout over the past few months. It's
a great thing to do while you're waiting for the morning coffee. And I employ
your 'Power Phrases' while doing my lazy, mile long backstroke."
"I feel happy, healthy, vibrant, positive and
empowered when I do them.The 4 Minute Fitness exercises are fabulous!"
"I received my videos and I love them. I've only done
the 4 Minute video for two days, but I feel so relaxed already. Can't
thank you enough. I'm so thankful I found your t'ai chi!"
"Especially rewarding for me is an increased
flexibility of my spine. The 4 Minute Fitness has helped to loosen the tension in my neck
and shoulders. Great for relaxing before bed and loosening up first thing in the
morning. Many thanks for the great job you have done."
"I received the videos I ordered from you last week and
I have viewed them several times - they're GREAT!"
..."I'm very happy with your four minute workout
program. I use it in conjunction with my weekly Tai Chi Ch'uan and have
even incorporated the "affirmation" sequence into my every other day mile swim. Thanks
for your work."
"I have added 4 Minute Fitness to the end of my
daily workout. I find it makes a nice ending. I like the tape and believe a lot of
people could benefit from using it."
I watched the video yesterday. Keith, you have given
something into the world that is flawless... funny... genuine... accessible...
"I have been faithful about my 4 Minute Fitness and it has served me well. I actually look forward to it because it's my time to breathe deeply and enjoy the movement, as well as having a better outlook on the rest of my life. Good stuff. Thanks!"
Luba, Parksville, BC Nov. 2000
"Yes! God Bless You. I was so impressed
that each exercise was shown sitting down. I am so pleased that there is a tape
that I can do and not have to worry about falling. The scenery is beautiful and
very peaceful. Thanks so much."
"WOW. It is just exquisite! We
are so impressed by the wonderful details included. It is beautiful, spiritually
inspired and very practical. I'd like to give one to everyone I know."
