I love almost any kind of dance workout, kickboxing and Pilates. I really enjoy circuit training and weight classes like (BodyPump). I discovered BodyPump after I had my daughter almost eight years ago. I stopped doing it for a while, but I started doing it again. As I get closer to 40, I appreciate how sexy muscle can be and how important weight training is as you get older.

bicycling is my favorite exercise, I love to ride my bike, but I also really like weight training.

I love Zumba and I was nervous when I first tried it too but its more about having fun than getting every step right, and I really work up a sweat. Also Insanity is a great intense work out I'm currently on my 7th week of the program and it has changed my body.

I run, take a kickboxing class, and lift weights. When I want to mix it up or am short on time, I do a HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout loosely based on the "Spartacus workout". Google it and you'll find lots of variations. I do one-minute intervals with 15 seconds of rest for a total of 10, then rest one minute and repeat the entire circuit twice (so 30 minutes of intense exercise). I mix it up but usually do some combination of:

goblet squats
split squat leaps
pushup to a T (do a pushup, turn sideways so you're supported on your left arm, lift the right arm straight up, repeat on the other side, etc.)
medicine ball slams
kettlebell swings
box jumps
reverse lunge with twist (holding a dumbbell)
upright row/overhead press combo

... whatever works to get your heart pumping furiously. Using weights increases the intensity of the exercise.

Bodyrock.tv has some good workouts too.

I love my personal trainer session. I started it after I came out of rehab for a back problem so that I could learn to avoid future back problems and stuck with it. Not only do they urge you further than you would do on your own, but also with more intensity/weight/speed. Best health money I ever spent.
