Personally - for a newbie, the best results I've ever had were with the P90 (not P90X) - I lost weight quickly and toned up in no time. The problem is that the workouts became very boring although shutting their music off and using my own mixes helped.
NEVER did I see improvement in such a short time. I can't wait for tax season to be over to start it again.

Spark is free and has a huge selection, try some to see what you like and don't before investing in your own.

I say this every time someone asks about workout DVDs, and I still love Jillian Michaels workouts! My fav is the kickboxing one, it has 3 levels which are each 20 minutes. When I started exercising, I only did 10 minutes of level one so I wouldn't be crazy sore the next day, but about 2 weeks after starting I was doing both level 1 and 3 together. Her 30 day shred is also really good, but I would start off with the kickboxing as it's fun and I never bore of it.

If you told us your current level of fitness -- and your preferences in terms of the type of exercise that you prefer, people could make suggestions that would fit your needs. Some of the ones mentioned below are rather advanced and WAY too hard for a beginner. Others are more appropriate for someone who is out of shape and/or has some limitations in their abities.
Some DVD's are more like "dance" and others are more like "gym class." In some programs, the instructor is cheerful and encouraging. In others, they are more intense and/or like a drill sargent. What exactly are you looking for?

I swear by anything by Chalene Johnson, which is turbo jam, turbo fire, and chalean extreme. Those can all be very pricey, though. I've heard that the Firm program is very good and Bob Harper's workouts are good too.

If you are new to working out, I would recommend the FIRM. They have awesome toning videos and decent variety. The FIRM Express is a little more intense, but they are only 20 minutes. You can get a very decent workout in a very short time. I did that as my bridge between no workout and Insanity, and really by the time I felt I was ready for Insanity, I was! Good luck! There are tons of great videos out there. Collagevideo.com is a site where you can view little video snippets of lots of DVDs to see what you like...sometimes that helps.
