I saw beachbody had a low impact series, slim in 6. I ordered it, I saw some of the reviews say that it is boring so I am crossing my fingers. I think I am just doing the cardio aspect of it for now because I ordered Les Mills pump for strength training. I have been wanting to try pump for a while.

I have had both knees replaced so jacks are out of the question for me but the dvd without jumping aren't as intense. I do turbo jam, turbo fire, high intensity workouts I just modify I don't jump always one foot on the floor.
check out YouTube (search low impact aerobics). I've found quite a few that I enjoy. Denise Austin also has some low impact routines on there, which are good.

Most of mine through Beachbody include jumping, but there is always someone to show you how to modify but keep great intensity. I've followed her before and felt just as good as I would jumping!

Ellen Barrett's Barefoot Cardio (I think that's the title) doesn't involve any jumping, as I recall. It's VERY low impact, which I appreciate.
Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred can be adapted to eliminate jumping and impact but still provide a good - and varied - workout.
Paul Tatami's Kettlebells for Beginners involves NO impact and I think it would be great for apartment dwellers, etc. Just don't drop the kettlebell! :) I also like the setting - a serene garden with a hint of the ocean in the distance. If you don't have a kettlebell you can improvise with a non-slip free weight - I've done it successfully. KBells are a good combination of strength and cardio - invigorating and efficient.
You may be able to find these at your library to sample. You can also see clips at Collage Video.com, which is a great company.
I'm sure others will chime in with more but I hope this helps.
I cannot do jumping in cardio because of my living arrangement. I do have 2 of Leslie Sansone's videos(Walk Away the Pounds) but I would like to add more variety. Cana anyone recommend a good video that doesn't include jumping?
