Anything Tae Bo with Billy Blanks rocks--kick and punch away the pounds, frustration, you name it. It's a great way for a regular person to feel like a bad %^&*(/.

I've done Shaun T's Insanity. That program is awesome and truly insane. The jumps they do...jeesh! I drop a total of 17 inches over my body in 2 months last year (and gained most of it back when I stopped due to boredom. Now I am losing what I gained and then have to lose more to hit my goal!). I have not tried the T25 yet.

I get bored easily, so I like to mix it up. My all time go-to is Billy Blank's Tae Bo Ultimate Bootcamp. I've been doing that for about 6 years now. I burn close to 600 calories in 55 minutes of working out to that. Denise Austin is always a good staple. She is the ultimate pro! Currently, I've been doing Walk at Home with Leslie Sansone (I find myself grinning when I do her workouts. She has great energy and spirit and I sweat a lot!) and Super SlimDown: Pilates Yoga Blend with Ellen Barrett. She's awesome. I have about 4 of her pilates DVDs. She is the pilates guru.

I have seen some of my friends doing the new (or newish?) T25 DVDs, and their results are amazing. I was totally pessimistic, until I starting seeing their results, but now that I have I am about to start.

Super excited! Has anyone done the T25 or is currently doing it? I'd love some T25 friends or some motivation. I'm excited and hoping my results are similar to those I've seen. Shaun seems pretty intense, but nonetheless I'm still excited. I figure I can do just about anything for only 25 minutes.

If anyone else is interested in starting these with me, message me to let me know :)

Here we goooooo!

I've always loved The Firm workout videos. I've been doing them off and on since the mid to late 1980s. That 'guaranteed results in 10 workouts' is no lie!

currently I'm taking boot camp & Tabata classes at the gym, so my home DVD workouts are Pilates. Over the years, I've found 3 Pilates workouts that I absolutely love:

www.amazon.com/Pilates-Workout-Circle-Dina
-Matty/dp/B004D53IWU

I found this set at the wholesale club one year in January. I've been using it for many, many years




acacialifestyle.com/product.asp?pn=51922
I bought this one after trying a 15 min Pilates workout on Spark. They had a special offer for Spark members to buy the DVD. One of my favorite things about this DVD is that it has 4 'mix and match' workouts. When you start the DVD, you select which of the workouts you want to do, and it will play them straight thru. Great for fitting a workout in the time you have - I don't have to FF or stop before the end of the routine.

+miller+pilates

I bought this one a few months ago at TJ Maxx - it's awesome! I love the bar with the resistance bands.

I love anything by Jillian Michaels or Jackie Warner...I like to get everything done with quickly and have little down time. I have the Bob Harper DVDs but they are too long to keep my attention.
I just picked up Hip Hop Abs but it will be a while before I start them.

I really enjoy Hip Hop Abs or Rockin Body by Shaun T. If I don't feel like doing either of those. I will hook up the WII and play Just Dance 2014 and burn some calories that way! All of three of these are fun!

Zumba is not for everyone. I've got knee problems as well.

If you're for actual classes, Masala Bhangra Workout, if modified, is somewhat more forgiving on the knees. Thousands of aging East Indian ladies doing this class can't be wrong ...

You CAN get Masala Bhangra on dvd; it's just that it's kind of tough to fulfill its workout space requirements (this dvd is based on traveling dance moves, and not the improvisable doubling-back [to make up for lack of space in which to move] kind, either)

Looks like I really need to try me some Leslie Sansone! She seems to be a real winner on this thread!

I personally love Julliane Hough Just Dance. I'm sure I spelled that all wrong emoticon

I also have a YouTube playlist of all the dances from Wii Just Dance that I like to go through. I thin kit's fun and I sweat my bum off doing them!

I have a Biggest Loser last chance workout DVD that's great at kicking my butt. However, I haven't used it in a few years. When I want to workout to a video now I find some on here. Easier to track, plus I can mix up different videos, into one big well-rounded workout. Once you have some favorites saved it's quicker than playing a DVD too.

Plus I have more equipment to work with now, and the only equipment on the DVD is dumbbells. Still a great workout, but I like to vary things.

Edit to add: There is one DVD, well, DVD program thing I would try, and that's the Brazilian Butt Lift. My bum is a real problem area for me, and it'd be nice to have a set program for toning that up over a certain amount of time. Unfortunately it's really expensive, so I doubt I'll fork the money out anytime soon.

Thanks! This was my first tangible-item win in, oh, 7 years on Spark (more??) and they actually sent two when I was only expecting one! Both SparkCoach-- Cardio Blast and Fit, Firm, and Fired Up.

I am a huge fan of Lisbeth Garcia's Pilates on Ball.

Don't have a DVD player right now and can't get DVDs to play on the laptop for some reason, either. I just won a couple of Sparkpeople ones on the wheel so I guess I'll have to borrow a computer or something emoticon

SharQui-The Belly Dance Workout, Bethenny's Skinnygirl Workout; and most of the ones put out by Hemalayaa in Bollywood dance-based workouts ...

Anything else is less-attended-to, for a BIG reason ... one of the reasons being in that I formulated my own yoga pilates fusion practice on mp3

Don't ask! You get to a point where the videos temporarily do not challenge your muscles enough, unless your flexibility and agility improve quickly over time ... I hadn't ever been there, and my body doesn't work that way ... my flexibility is barely a correlate to the strength of the muscle but more to my skeletal constraints ....
