30 Day Shred. Anything Tae-Bo is a great, fun workout. Bob Harper's Ultimate Cardio Body is GREAT! It is intense. :-)

Like mentioned before Jillian Michael's 30 day shred is a good one, also I follow Cassie Ho on almost anything. She has some pretty good videos. http://www.blogilates.com

i personally don't enjoy walking dvd's. i've only done two, one of which was a Leslie Sansone. it's basically just marching in place with some variations. it was fun to do once or twice when i was just getting back into an exercise routine, but that's about it. i actually enjoy my treadmill much more than a walking dvd! as far as my "go to" i have so many i love. it really depends on your fitness level and how you're feeling on any particular day. if you're a beginner or even intermediate, i absolutely recommend Kelly Coffey-Meyer's "Start Here" dvd. love it. if you're intermediate or advanced, i'd say Jessica Smith's "10 Pounds Down." it's really good and tough. if you're very advanced and really super fit, no one beats Cathe Friedrich in my opinion. =)

I have many of Leslie Sansone DVDs. I used those to help me get started exercising again, and it worked. I should say it is working.

Original Zumba Flat Abs/Live Concert DVD is my first choice. 2nd would be 30 Day Shred, 3rd Coach Nicole's Cardio Workouts.

I also like Leslie Sansone - walk away the pounds. I happened to find her via pinterest. Someone pinned her video on Youtube actually! So if you are interested in trying that you can search it on youtube. I pull it up on my iPad and sit it up on a table..not as big as a TV but it works. It sounds boring but is fun. She makes you forget that you are "walking" away pounds. I've also done the same with Zumba. There are some 50 minute continual videos on youbtube.

I like to do Jessica Smith's low impact on days I can't go hard! On brighter days, my go-to is Billy Blanks' Taebo! I feel like I am actually punching a person I despise or has hurt me! I even have muscle definition in my arms, thanks to Billy!

Someone also mentioned the Sit and Be Fit, and those are really nice, too. I got some used in VHS form on Amazon for a very reasonable price. Great to have on hand when you need to keep off your feet.

I like the Leslie Sansone for days I want to do milder exercise. For days I plan to push myself, I do the PACE DVD's that I purchased from Dr. Al Sears PACE Program. They are very adaptable and utilize the HIIT that some of the Leslie Sansone videos also use.

On amazon prime, you can rent some Leslies and others available for rent as well. They are not available via hulu.

There are tons on youtube.com. You have to search what you're looking for.

With the walk away the pounds dvds you do not just walk but you keep changing directions when you do side steps and step back. This change in movement helps make the evercise work better. So, I would say it is different than just walking one direction on a treadmill.

Anyone know which of these are available on youtube or say amazon prime or hulu downloading? Would prefer to try a few videos that way rather than buying. I tend to get bored with an exercise dvd and then never use it again.

For those of you who love Leslie Sansone, is it still worth it if you have a treadmill at your house? I have a treadmill I like to use and listen to loud music. lol Are her DVD's a good way to walk inside or are they good even if you have an alternate way to do that?

Good things come to those who....work!

I love Billy Blanks Bootcamp dvds. :-) Also a really fun and completely free way to try out some new exercise dvds is to check them out from the library. I spent about a year checking out different ones and trying them for a week before settling on Billy Blanks.

I love the Leslie Sansone walk away the pounds DVDs. They are a mainstay for me. I have several and swap them around all the time. They are low impact, so for an oldie like myself with various aches and pains they are great. There are also 1 mile up to 5 mile workouts so it depends on the time and day.

Step by step and day by day.

With my knee problems, Leslie Sansone's dvds are a life-saver. Lately my favorites are her Burn and Firm in 30. Her workouts are what gave me the confidence to start getting healthier. I also like her 5 Minute 500 Step and 3 Minute workouts for a quick boost. Thanks Leslie!

I may not be good at losing weight, but I'm damn good at finding it! That counts too...right?

I love everything Chalene Johnson. Even if I'm feeling unmotivated or cranky, I am always in a better mood even before the warmup is over. (I'm currently hooked on the Turbo Fire program, but the basic Turbo Jam series served me well - I lost 60 lbs doing it!)

The 3 that never let me down are Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred, The All Star Trainers DVD (I think out of print but can still be found on ebay), and TaeBo Celebrity Fit. I've owned all of them for YEARS. I have a gym membership now, but if for some reason I can't get there, I will still pull one of these, and they leave me satisfied.

Mine's Pick Your Spot Pilates. It's part of the Crunch series. It's entirely floor work and that is really great when you're just starting out. After awhile, it just felt like second nature. I never really got bored with it...BUT I'm kind of ok with repetition fitness-wise. lol What DVD makes it "easy" for you to get in a workout no matter what?

Good things come to those who....work!
