I think that these exercises if need be can be modified or the weight can be modified based off the client base, these are great moves for basic movement skills. If I did not have a kettlebell I could see how the Turkish Get-Up could be great for a senior population with out weight also

These movements seem fine for a conditioned athlete. Some of the movements look rather risky for a lot of my clients. The twisting motions of the TGU could possibly pull a back or neck muscle if not controlled properly. What about spotting these activities. Also 9 pounds would be to very heavy for people I work with to do endurance work..
