I'm trying to find a good exercise routine that I will stick with. I am currently doing my hip hop abs. It's hard sometimes just to stay motivated!

What type of trampoline do you use? i am wanting to try a trampoline, but don't know what the best is. I've heard different criticism of different brands breaking, or having problems with springs or bands. I went to a store and was all kinds of confused.

I love my trampoline and Urban Rebounding DVDs... and sometimes just jogging in place on the tramp is great too while watching TV!

I have Tony Horton's 10minute trainer and it really works. The first few sessions I could barely move my legs.

I used to hate workout videos so much! I think it's because I found it hard finding good ones that weren't too cheesy or not worth the effort.

Now I still prefer running outside or going to the gym for intense cardio but when I can't get outside or don't have access to a gym, I do the following videos. I've been living and working in Kenya for the past 3 months and really relying on these workouts to supplement my running.

JIllian Michaels 30 Day Shred- I love love love this workout. Level 1 is a bit too easy for me on its own but doing it back to back with Level 2 is a great 40 min workout! I actually don't have hand weights right now so I'm doing the workouts as a lite cardio and ab day (I still do the strength moves but just w/o weights). When I'm back home in NYC, I do these with weights but skip the cardio parts (I live on the 3rd floor of a brownstone and my downstairs neighbors would not appreciate all the jumping).

JIllian Michaels Banish Fat Boost Metabolism- All I can say is WOW! This is definitely a cardio blast DVD. If you're used to intense workouts, this won't disappoint. I'm always drenched in sweat after I do this one and totally exhausted (but in a good way). Lots of jumping, ab work, and kickboxing moves. Love this video!

Spark People Videos- I tend to not use these too much but there are some that I do often. The 10 min jumpstart cardio is a great way to fit in a tough cardio workout when I don't have lots of time. I also like the pilates hips/thighs workout and the 5 min butt blasting workout.

Windsor Pilates (on youtube)- I really like windsor pilates but they are a bit pricey. You can get some segments online though and I really like doing this for abs instead of just crunches all the time.

emoticon Well, when you get through the 30 Day Shred, you will have to let us know how it went. I have a hard time committing to more than 1 week at a time, so a 30 Day Shred sounds very challenging

Wii Games that work:

Gold's Gym Cardio
Gold's Gym Dancing
Just Dance 2
Michael Jackson The Experience

All of these games have me sweating and having so much fun that I forget I am working out.

I am going to have to try Hip Hop Abs. I bought the 30 Day Shred yesterday and had to sit down half way through because I wasn't ready for the non-stop action. I plan to stick with it until I can conquer it but will be open to other avenues as well.

Hip Hop Abs is great!!!

Turbo Jam is so much fun!!!

Walk Away the Pounds is kind of slow, but great for beginners and those who cannot get outside to walk. I have the WATP video with the weighted balls, which makes it a great workout.

Slim in 6 is good too!
