Exercise DVD Suggestions
I am SAHM to 3 kids. We used to be YMCA members, but have cut that for budget reasons. This is the time of year I struggle... Feb. in Minnesota sucks :)
I'm not looking for weight loss, rather strength and body toning.

My two favorite DVDs:
• Hip Hop Abs: 3 workouts– Fat Burning Cardio, Ab Sculpt, Total Body Burn (instructor: )Shaun T
• SHAPE Long, Lean, and Strong (yoga with instructor Teri Hanson)
The first one is great because it uses dance moves, so it's fun to do, and you work up a good sweat. The second one is my favorite yoga video (I have 5-6) and I use this one almost exclusively. Teri's style is very fluid, she gives you good warm ups and cool downs, strengthens and stretches your body. My mom loves this workout, too, and my brother uses the Hip Hop Abs.
I got them both on Amazon.com for a really great price (got used copies).

I don't know of any DVD's but the Nintendo WII offers yoga workouts on one of there games. It will give you a good workout /toning. I just have the WII game that you can golf, play tennis and do boxing but it's a work out for sure. You should give it a try its fun to. If youre not into games the library will let you rent DVDs for free there maybe they'll have something there that fits you better.

Someone suggested this website...
However, the workout that I currently LOVE is this one from youtube. It's a kettlebell work-out for women. Very simple and just a few little things to do, but it's quick and I have time in-between helping the kids. Oh, and just got a couple of handle 2 lb weighs from target and use them. My tummy is really toning up!!

I went to Turbo Kick at the Y and really liked it. They also have videos called Turbo Jam. Kinda spendy, but maybe you could get them on ebay or craigslist or something...
