Children Exercising With SIT AND BE FIT Have This To Say…….

“I really like SIT AND BE FIT a lot because it’s fun! Every time I watch I feel good.”

Isiah C.

Age 5


“My daughter (11) and I have been exercising with SIT AND BE FIT everyday this summer. We both enjoy it very much and it’s a good daily activity to do over the summer. My daughter is a very talented dancer and she feels it is important for her to exercise her muscles so she can become an even better dancer.”

“It is 3:00 and I just finished watching SIT AND BE FIT. Mary Ann Wilson is my favorite person in the whole world. Your show is very relaxing. You’re always smiling and so nice.”

Jessica H.

Age 12


“Your program, SIT AND BE FIT, is perfect for my 15 month old granddaughter. You are reinforcing her new words like up up, down down, sit; counting 1 – 2 – 1 – 2; and again again. It is a nice supplement to her Baby Einstein videos and Teletubbies.”

Carol K., referring to

Haley, 15 months




“The SIT AND BE FIT Kid’s Workout (VHS) (DVD) is excellent. My own children as well as my day care kids really enjoy it. It helps pass the winter months when outdoor play time is limited because of the snow and coldness. Even my 2 1/2 year old tries to imitate it. My own children have special needs. My oldest has down syndrome. The video is so good in helping him with his fine & gross motor skills & strengthening his muscles in a fun way. You should make sure other day care providers know about these exercise programs.”
