I like Ellen Barrett's DVD's -- because they are gentle on the body and focus on strength, balance, and flexibility -- with a mild cardio element. They include some pilates, yoga, and ballet type moves. They provide a general over-all workout. I always feel good when I finish one of them - "exercised" but not strained and/or injured. You can preview them at collagevideo.com.
Some people on SparkPeople would think they are too "easy" -- but for a beginner, they are a good place to start.
I am capable of doing more vigous exercises, but I like to do her DVD's once or twice per week because they feel so good -- and do a good job of working my core in the right way to improve my posture.
