Laugh if you want, but I have often put in one of my son's dvds and tried to keep up with all the dancing/moving around. Keeps the kids entertained and some of those (the Wiggles in particular) had me totally winded at the end of the video! Give it a shot!

Someone already mentioned Walk Away the Pounds but I will second that idea. It is a great video, my kids even love doing it with me. You can even play music instead of listening to the lady talk. It is a great way to burn calories when it is too cold to walk outside.

Good luck and have fun on your trip,

I do the T Tapp 15 minute workout. It is awesome! It is hard at first if you are out of shape, but it gets easier and the 15 minutes flies by! You can go to the T Tapp site to check it out - there are some great reviews there.

I love the FIRST Biggest Loser workout DVD. It is fantastic and a great workout - but it isn't super hard!!

Joey Atlas all the way!!! I have his Butt Leg Hip and Thigh makeover and it works wonders! He also has a line in abs, upper body and I believe core also. Hope this helps.

I absolutley LOVE the FIRM DVD's. I started using them after my 2nd child was born (and my diet)and lost 40 lbs in 9 months. They combine aerobics and weight training in intervals so they are fun and effective! Sometimes you can find them at Target. Otherwise check or Amazon. It does involve step aerobics so if you don't like those you won't like the Firm, but I love it and it's the only workouts I have that I keep doing. I have used them for four years now, and I have a collection of about 35+ tapes/ DVD's!

Kelly, go to the library and check out as many DVDS as they allow and try them until you find one that works for you. If the first 5 or 10 don't do it, go take out MORE and you will eventually find the one you just love.(they will have videos too if that is an option.

Good luck,

Go to the Self magazine's website where you can find simple weekly exercise programs and recipes to help lose weight.

Here are some things I found useful in my experience:
1) Do exercise with hand weights.
2) Weight lifting does the best job to burn calories than other exercises.
3) Pilates is great for at home exercise. You can get dvds or tapes from the city libraries.

I started using Pilates DVDs to exercise before I had my son who is now 18 months old. I started back up just recently for the same reason you are looking for a DVD.

I just looked for my set of DVDs and it seems my neighbor has borrowed them again so I can't get you the title, but I found them online.

I believe they are Mari Windsor Pilates. The set I have has three DVDs that gradually increase in difficulty and exercise time. The first one is 20 minute exercises and the longest is an hour and a half with Yoga intermission.

I like them because Pilates is relatively low impact but you really feel the workout! AND they focus on building your Core muscles (the tummy) which is what all us mom's can use the help on!!!

Good luck!



answers from Madison on

try pilates.. it is very effective.. i do it whenever i can.. try windsor pilates - accelerated body sculpt workout dvd...

you will notice results in a week.. you can get this dvd at your local library as well..

all the best..



answers from Madison on

I would recomend GILAD he had a program on FIT TV if you have DIRECT TV or you could probably ask you local Library to order you some to try. If you have a day that you want slower pace ther are alot of Yoga shows out there - Try one that combines Yoga with Pillaties or that focases on toning. Don't forget to drink LOTS of water that has always been a key to benifiting from my workouts.
Good Luck.



answers from Milwaukee on

seeming you said you would like to get out and walk if it was warmer out then i would also suggest the video Walk Away the Pounds. It's pretty fun and you can choose how long you would like to walk.. a good way to get in a few miles of walking everyday..



answers from Bismarck on

I have tried both the exercise ball and a video called Walk Away the Pounds. I liked both of them but I'm just not motivated enough to do them on a regular basis. I hope this is helpful. Good luck.
