Walmart, Target, etc.

If anything your knees will get stronger. Just listen to your body and do only what you can do.

I have knee issues and the 30ds was hard on them until I started doing it barefoot. It made a huge difference. You might try that if you have trouble once you get started.

haha I sometimes do it barefoot as well. I've often thought of making a message board post to ask people if they thought that was a bad idea. I have hardwood floors which seem to be slick when popping out of some of her moves, when I have tennis shoes on. Jumping jacks also seem to be better done barefoot. Maybe we're just weirdos? haha

I alternate between barefoot and shoes. ;)

We must be the cool kids! lol

I'm not even 30 yet and my knees creek all the time thanks to many years of playing sports, I've done 30DS and had no problems :)

I had knee surgery in October for arthritis and a torn meniscus; my orthopedist said the only thing I can absolutely not do is squats. He's not crazy about paddle tennis either ; ) I would talk to a doctor about your particular situation.

I have a bad knee (basically no cartilage, you can hear it popping and grinding when I work out) and just started 30DS yesterday. I did fine with it, but we'll see if that keeps up :)

Follow up question that I just thought of.....what size weights do you use?

Thanks for all the great responses....I'm going to get it on amazon right now!
