    Nope… because the videos bore me after doing them one or two times… I like to change things up and the videos don’t do that for me.

    • disqus_wkz0OeTEcR

      I have a wide variety of about 2 dozen videos – it keeps me from getting bored. I rotate through them so I only do the same one about every 3 weeks.

  • J

    Billy Blanks???

  • Jefsekingv

  • Sknevins5

    Love anything Chalene Johnson – favorite is ChaLean Extreme. I love how slow and deliberate the weight work outs are. She is my favorite video instructor by far. T25 is very good but wish Chalene was the one talking!

  • Taryn

    Tracey Anderson is my fitness guru above all because she lifts and tones all those areas that don’t like to stay lifted. The Method and Metamorphosis
    is where it’s at!

  • Constinteen

    Kelly Coffey Meyer is my absolute favorite. Circuit Burn is probably my favorite video of hers so far. I’m drenched at the end but it is so fun! Jari Love is another of my faves.

  • Amber

    Love Love Turbo Fire, Turbo Jam, ChaLEAN Extreme, Insanity and T25. I have loved Jillian Michaels in past- but, I like to mix things up!

  • I love “Faithful Workouts!” Michele Spadafora combines total body moves and cardio along with inspiration from a Christian point of view. These workouts are challenging and effective and fun!

  • Marianne Albretsen

    Beachbody just released the home version of Piyo! I normally don’t do at home DVDs but I will get this one 🙂

  • disqus_wkz0OeTEcR

    My favorite is Ellen Barrett. Gentle, yet effective.

  • Poof

    I actually love Rush Fit!! It challenges me while allowing me to make modifications if I’m not physically ready for certain moves. And it changes so much that I’m not bored.

  • Allemande

    I like Gin Miller for Step, Leslie Sansone when I have fallen off the wagon for a while, but my all time fave is Ellen Barrett. I feel completely energized after any of her workouts

  • I love the TurboFire workout program as well at Focus T25. I’ve done Insanity, but wouldn’t do it again. I enjoyed the P90X too, but prefer the first two I mentioned.

  • Beck

    X-Train Fit for Women with Stephanie Oram is awesome, helped me lose 25 pounds in three and half months, and with eight DVDs offers a great variety!

  • Mike Gant

    Jillian Michaels body revolutions is awesome my wife and I do them and have lost 25 lbs in the first few weeks.

  • Deb129

    I love Shawn T’s Hip hop Abs videos. They are a few years old but they are fun and more like dancing than exercise!

  • miltenbt

    Love anything by The FIRM!

  • Colleen Faler

    Anything put out by Crunch Fitness, or the Yoga Booty Ballet series from Beach Body. Crunch’s instructors (Including Billy Blanks) have some really amazing workouts to offer and bring a great energy to the workout. YBB incorporates dance, toning and my beloved yoga.

  • Bob K

    For those seeking variety, buy a Roku box for about 100.00 They have about a dozen fitness channels with a variety of workouts lasting anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes designed for people working out at home. Most of them can be watched for free with commercials or for about 8.00 per month without commercials. I prefer for free with commercials as it gives me time for water or to practice a new move or add my own exercise to the routine.

  • Rezacat

    Huge fan of anything by The Firm! Thin in 30 is a series of 12 DVDs all 20 minutes, and they work everything! Also like Tight Buns and Killer Legs for my lower body.

  • Paula

    Cathe Friedrich

  • Tobi

    Cindy Crawford “Shape Your Body Workout” – from 2004. Has three workouts on one DVD, is low-impact, and kicks my butt.

  • Wzy

    Big Fan of Kelly Coffey Meyer here as well! No fluff, nonsense or body guilting in her workouts. And they make you stronger & stress-free! ‘Body Shop’ & ‘LIFT’ are my faves!
