    I’m 58 and love to walk but have been slacking 😪

  2. Betty Jimmo on March 17, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    I found this interview and interaction to be delightful, insightful and inspiring. Many thanks to Dr. Chun for such an encouraging outlook for a healthy and rewarding future as we grow older. As as always, our friends at Yes2Next were warm and cute as ever. Love the direction you are sharing with so many.❤️

  3. Karen Chin on March 17, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Very interesting talk, just the right topic. Thank you very much April and Aiko. I follow your workouts everyday and find my joints moving better. I feel something is missing when I miss even 1 day of workouts. It’s really something to look forward to.
    Take care and thank you again.

  4. Irene Zabytko on March 17, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Thank you! Great and informative discussion! And many thanks for your great work for us senior to you both and to Dr. Chun. Looking forward to continuing to keep moving with YES2NEXT in the coming year.

  5. Karen Larson on March 17, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    I am 74 and know that we must keep moving daily. I love to go to group workouts so I can interact with others. I started exercising at least 5 days a week in my 60’s and have made it a priority in my life (my health is my priority). I am not one of the older adults who have lost their appitite so I log my food and water daily with a calorie goal in mind and try to eat healthier. I have learned healthy habits but I do have days and I get off track. I never worry about it because I know I will get back on track. Thank you for being there for us when needed. Today is going to be a chair yoga day (low back pain) and once of your walking workouts. Keep living your healthy lifestyle and never give up!

  6. Anne McFadzen on March 17, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I really enjoyed watching that video and will now try to get my 53yr old daughter to find the time to watch it also. Am looking forward to the new exercises and I suppose it will appear sometime today in Scotland. Thank you both very much.

  7. betty maugeri on March 17, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Happy New Year April and Akko🙏

  8. janet middlemas on March 17, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Happy new year to you both and your families, starting your excercises every morning after eating too much over the festivities

  9. Sue Waverley on March 17, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Happy New Year both of you! Thank you for posting this video, it was a very interesting talk. I look forward to doing the 7-day challenge (did the first one this morning) and spending time with you this year, working on my health. Take care. 🙂

  10. gretel hancel on March 17, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Greetings from Mumbai, India. Thanks April and Aiko for planning something new to kick off 2022. You two are epic. Love you both. Looking forward to the 7 days workout. God bless you both.

  13. Sukha Sukha on March 17, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Great information and so enjoy your approach. What exercise can seniors over 60 perform to firm up or lose love handles?

  14. gretel hancel on March 17, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Love face time,!
    I hang out with granddaughters😅

  15. 07tanitani on March 17, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Really enjoyed meeting Dr. Chun and hearing her speak. Moderation in my diet, motivation in my exercise, appreciation in my attitude were the three points that stuck out for me.

  16. Cheryl Bailey on March 17, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Great info thx ladies

  17. Mary Bonello on March 17, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    So interesting ☺️ thank you so much 👍

  18. MARTY LESNICK on March 17, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    YOU TWO ARE ADORABLE! Your Mom is an inspiration. Almost 72 and going to follow your walking work out. Some times I feel like I have 2 left feet 🤣but you make it easy to try new steps and learn them. Your guest person was very informative. Thank you Susan

  19. Elizabeth save this for me on March 17, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    My work is at computer so I have to sit what to do

  20. inci özşendil on March 17, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Thank you for your great contribution. Could you please open up subtitles if it’s ok for you as well?

  21. 324cmac on March 17, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    And pets are good, if you can’t find the right humans.

  22. Kerrie Carley on March 17, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    My daughter just turned 50 and prompted me to watch this video. I am 74 and of course I was interested too. I actually encourage both my daughters to participate in the yes2next programs because I just love doing exercises with you and have found them beneficial.

    My inspirational quote would be from the Bible – “This is the day that the Lord has made- Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

  23. Sioux san on March 17, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Great video!

  24. Kerry-Lee Angel on March 17, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    Thank you so much for your inspirational conversation with Dr Chun. It helped me do a self assessment of where I’m up to with my diet, exercise and general well-being. I’m feeling more confident. Blessings, KL 🇦🇺

  25. Cheryl Bailey on March 17, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Just found your page today January 8th 2022 I am 58 years old but just seeing the video with your mother has inspired me to keep going

  26. Remedios Tapawan on March 17, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Thank you mom Aiko and April for the very informative interview.

  27. David Molloy on March 17, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Hiya, April, You’re 57! I thought that you were in your mid thirties! Thanks very much for a great video.

  28. christine pease on March 17, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Thank you April and Aiko, A very informative video shared on Facebook , Have a lovely day

  29. Patty Sylvester on March 17, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    Excellent video! So informative and motivating! Thank you so much April and Aiko for interviewing this knowledgeable and personable physician. It was so helpful from beginning to end. And as usual, your Mom and daughter duo was delightful!

  30. Mary Solomon on March 17, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    I love and appreciate the "work" that you all do. The resources suggested and the consecutiveness you offer is so helpful, caring and useful. I look forward to your seven day series (where/how do we access) and your ongoing videos. Keep up the GREAT work.

  31. Susie Blue on March 17, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    April and Aiko thanks so much. I am 52 and spent most of my life depressed and just either in bed or sitting feeling like I am wasting away. I came across your website and exercises right about a year ago maybe, and let me just say that every video that I do brings along joy and a smile on my face. I have my slip ups but always come back to you lovely ladies with pleasure and grace. Keep it up and I look forward to giving the challenge this week a go. Loved the interview and think that it was best summed up with Dr. Chun inspirational thought at the end that she was so moved by from her patient loved the ending to the awesome interview. Great reminder that I need to see about having my vitamin D checked out by my Doctor as I live here in the not always so sunny PNW of Vancouver WA. Feeling blessed already with the New Year just beginning.

  32. Lilian Bancroft on March 17, 2022 at 9:10 pm

  37. Lee Roberts on March 17, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Lots of good information!

  38. Grace Chan on March 17, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you for the interview. My knee injury had kept me away from exercise for over 3 months. I am trying to return to the daily workout of Yes2next. Kudos to April and Aiko. Happy and healthy 2022.

  39. Remedios Tapawan on March 17, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Thank you Dr. Chun.

  42. Cellc Cellc on March 17, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    I am 79 and love your videos

  43. Linda Garner on March 17, 2022 at 9:23 pm


  44. gretel hancel on March 17, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Chriopractors help too!

  45. Leila Luginbill on March 17, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    I have been doing exercises with you two for the last 3 months because of my knee surgery. Before that, I was a very fit walker and gardener, and I really panicked when I found that the recovery time wasn’t a matter of weeks but months perhaps longer! At 75, I felt that I couldn’t waste any time and lose what I had prior to surgery. Aiko is a real inspiration. As spring approaches, I anticipate returning to my garden and continue walking thanks to you. I wish I could get my husband to follow along as well…could you add an older gentleman to make a trio? I think my husband is resistant because he thinks it’s only for women.❤️

  46. Leo Nita on March 17, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Very helpful and insightful, thank you April, Mom Aiko, and Dr Chun ❤️

  47. Cecilia Panganiban on March 17, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Thanks Mam Aiko and Mam April for the different workouts and tips for healthy lifestyle. God Bless..

  48. Laurie Lovell on March 17, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Thank you for this video. It was both informative and enjoyable. I look forward to your 7 day Challenge! See you two tomorrow!

  49. L Anders on March 17, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Thank You Dr. I wish we could Clone you to add to Communities across our nation what you have given to seniors in your medical practice. So many Seniors are falling through the cracks and resort to isolation and silently suffering. If a community is lucky enough to have a senior group/center they can address the challenging health, both physical and emotional issues they face. Thank You April and Aiko for bringing us this informative interview.

  50. Joy Connell on March 17, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing your passion for healthy living! The benefits of internet and connection to wonderful information and programs keeping us informed. You have given us a well rounded approach to growing wise as we grow older. I’ve been enjoying the workouts and the way you and your Mom interact. Dr Chung was encouraging and realistic in her sensible advise to keep us going as well as keeping us grateful for where we are. God bless you both, I’m coming along. 😍 Joy
