Loreal, I COMPLETELY second the Denise Austin being annoying, I think I have the Blast series too (can't remember), but, yeah...she's excessively smiley and overly "trying" to motivate. It's like if Barbie were to be a workout instructor!

With the burn I break up the stress, with my sweat it leaves my body.

Belly Dancing is the way to go for me. Great music, and you only need a very tiny area. Plus, you get to wear cool jingly clothes!

I bought the Biggest Loser Workout DVD. Man, the low intensity does not feel like low intensity. It is a great workout DVD because the people doing the workout on TV actually look like everyday normal people. You can set up your workout schedule, too. You can have the instructor talking or just leave the music running without the instructor talking.

There was an Sp article posted the other day, and that's pretty much what I do!

i bought denise austin blast away the pounds dvd. you get to create the order of your workout, each segment is 15 minutes and its a good cardio workout. she's annoying but put her on mute and she'll really make you sweat.

I have a couple of Pilates videos. They're tough and I'm always sore the next day, but it's also worth it! I bought them at Wal-Mart for 5.50. I always check the bins that have the 5.50 movies cause a lot of times there are workout DVD's in there and they're cheap as well!

I just got Paula Abdul's "Cardio Cheer" (I used to be a cheerleader hahah) and I do it in my room when my roomie isn't here. There are five discs so I have choices, and I got it from Amazon so it was really cheap. I'm actually looking into stuff like iTrain.com for workouts on my iPod... Each of our dorms here actually has an exercise room in the basement, but I'm fine in my room usually.

I have to second the DDR motion. I opted not to bring it to the dorm this year (last year I lived on the ground floor so there were no problems, but I didn't want to annoy my downstairs neighbour this year), but it is incredibly fun and great exercise.

I don't have any exercise DVDs myself, though I do have a 20-minute Pilates workout on my computer that I use on those days where I don't go to the gym.

oooh, my fiance loves DDR. My sister got it recently. I have a hard time with it though. I'm not very coordinated, and I tend to get mixed up with the up and down arrows. But it's definitely a good work out, especially after you get good at it.

After all, tomorrow is another day.

If you live on the bottom floor, you should definitely try DDR. (People living underneath tend to get annoyed if you play it, though---my neighbors literally play for HOURS ON END every day!)

Oh, definitely! It may seem goofy at first but it's a lot of fun. And it's the first DVD in the series, so it's perfect for beginners (like me).

I do the SparkPeople strength workout in my room. I'm looking for a workout DVD and I'm interested in the Strip Your Way to Fitness DVD, would you reccomend it?

After all, tomorrow is another day.

Dorm students - how do you work out when you don't have time to hit the gym?

I recently bought a jump rope as well as 2 workout videos - Carmen Electra's Strip Your Way to Fitness and World Dance Workout. Carmen's DVD is nice as you can program it to fit your needs - time, music, impact level, etc.
