Anywhere Legs

Anywhere Legs is a good workout companion that can be done in just 10 minutes in the office, at home, or on vacation.  It goes well with Nickel Buddy’s other Kindle exercise tools: Anywhere Abs and My Yoga Studio.

Anywhere Legs is a quick set of workouts designed to tone and strengthen your leg muscles.  There are three routines, and they each have a beginner, intermediate and advanced level.  There are six different exercises in each routine.

Anywhere Legs is set up pretty much the same way as Anywhere Abs.  So, the same suggestions apply: audio signals and more obvious well written instructions to explain the exercises.  You can press Help to access instructions, but I think it would be easier to follow if it is actually with the  picture.  It is kind of difficult to get to Help in the middle of an exercise.  Audio will hopefully be better integrated into future versions of the Kindle.

The worst thing that can happen is to get an injury from performing the exercises incorrectly.  As with any other exercise routine, make sure to check with your doctor to make sure you are physically able to perform the exercises.

Anywhere Legs includes a timer that times each exercise.  All of the graphics are easy to see.  Some examples of the exercises include lunches, stretching, and pilates like exercises.  So, there is a good, well rounded selection.

The biggest advantage that Anywhere Legs and the others in the collection have are that they are really inexpensive and super portable.  Even exercise DVD’s can run anywhere from $10-20.  With the apps on your Kindle, you can slip it into a tote and take them wherever you go.

“An audible timer might be nice as another reviewer pointed out, but it’s not really that big of a deal for me. I prop up my Kindle in front of me while I do the exercises anyway and it’s easy enough to just glance at the screen to see the timer.

Overall, this is a great addition to my Kindle and I highly recommend it. Just having a few exercises on my Kindle is a little reminder to get up and move, so it’s a great motivation!”

Good future additions to the collection would be Pilates and Kickboxing.  Both can be done without any equipment.  But, it might be more fun if you put on a little music.
