Yeah.. i definately like using videos... especially in winter when its too freaking cold to step outside and go to the gym!

umm... I would recommend the only two that i have tried out so far:

- Cindy Crawford workout video (she has done several but this is her first one)! its really really good, with weights and all and her body is def. a motivation!!!

-At a sale I found this Mtv home video workout video of Pilates with Kristin McGee and its really good. Most of the things are just like in my pilates course i take and so i also recommend this one!

There are 3 other people apart from her that show the moves for each category: beginner, medium and advance!!

I am what they call a "Vidiot"...
Use exercise DVDs almost entirely for my workouts. (I run sometimes, too.) I do Cathe Friedrich or The Firm most times, but lately I've done Turbo Jam and Tracie Long Training workouts. Turbo Jam is a combination of kicboxing and dance while Tracie Long Training workouts focus on functional fitness, which is lots of core work. I'm also very fond of Rodney Yee's Yoga Burn. I'm sore every time I use it.

Yoga Booty Ballet is a popular series. They're a combination of yoga, ballet and various forms of dance. I only have Hip Hop Abs, Pajama Time and AM Latte so far, but I think I'll try more of them. They're actually fun.

Here are some sites to help you in your search for more info:

http://www.videofitness.com -- Tons of reviews here. Plus, they have a very active message board.

http://www.collagevideo.com -- Collage sells workout videos. They have 60 second clips of everything they sell. An excellent way to preview before deciding what to get.

http://www.beachbody.com -- They sell Turbo Jam and Yoga Booty Ballet.

http://www.firmdirect.com -- Site for The Firm series of workouts.

http://www.cathe.com -- Cathe's site. Her workouts are mostly advanced, but she has a few easier titles available, too.

Use the above sites to try and figure out what DVDs/types of exercise you would like to do. Then start downloading some you would like. There is no need to waste your time on workouts that you might hate. I hope this helps.

I love Tae Bo videos! I don't do them all the time but once in a while I'll pop the tape in and well I think it's fun but challenging. I sure do feel like I've gotten a great workout when I'm done double time

If you are going for a pilates workout, I recommend the Crunch Gym's Ab, Butt and Thigh video. It spends about 10 minutes on each area and is pretty challenging! I've noticed results in just 3 weeks! Its kind of relaxing at the same time as well.

We have Slim in six (Debbie something, I can't remember her name), and it's ok. Billy Blank's Tae bo ones are the most fun, I think.

I'm looking for something more high-energy, Britney Spears-type dancey videos.... even a dance instruction tape! Any suggestions?
