I bought a few items off of Amazon.com today in order to improve my workouts. I bought:
-An incredibly cheap version of Just Dance 3 ($9.99!). I like the previous Just Dance videos. They aren't a real workout for me most of the time, but they are definitely a mood booster and it is more activity than sitting and watching a movie.
-A couple bollywood dance videos. I already have some, but variety is the spice of life. I love dance and this is a very fun cardio-style dance.
-An Irish stepping cardio video. I have always wanted to learn Irish dance. I know this cardio video isn't really true to Irish stepping, but its an intro and I can get a workout with it more than I could with learning true Irish step.
-A Nia style dance DVD. I have never done Nia, but it looks very similiar to Zumba. Does anyone have reviews? I haven't been to Zumba since my restart because I know that the instructor I like is too hardcore for me at this time. It was hard enough when I was 50lbs lighter! This DVD makes Nia dance look very fluid and enough cardio to get me moving in the right direction to get back into my Zumba classes.
-A waterproof mp3 player. I saw it recommended on a blog because it can be submerged in water. This means I can start lap swimming. I have always wanted to lap swim but thought it would be incredibly boring and I would never stick with it. Hopefully that product will help. I love water, I love music, so it should be a good workout.
