I am starting to look at barre routines (as in "ballet barre") to change up my exercise routine. They tend to be based on ballet, pilates, and yoga. You don't need a real ballet barre for them -- you can use a chair -- and they don't require a lot of space to move around in -- and don't involve jumping. So they are good for an apartment or condo.
I just bought a DVD called Total Body Balance (with Jessica Smith) that I like. It has four 20-minute routines on it. And I plan to try a couple more as I have put them on my upcoming birthday wish list. There is a SparkTeam for people who like barre routines. You can more recommendations there.
