I do my own form when I go out for my walks. I just walk at a fast pace for a while, then do some "wall" pushups against a tree, walk some more, then walking lunges or squats, walk more, then abductions--you get the idea.
I don't know of specific websites, but I do my own at the gym. I set up 3 or 4 machines (or more if not busy) and do one set (12-15 reps) on each of them and repeat the circuit again. I only wait several seconds between the machines. Then I go onto the next 3 or 4 and so on. It really gets the heart rate up and I count it as both cardio and strength. I do 15 minutes on the treadmill with incline intervals before and after the weights. Hope that helps. Kathy

There are some articles about making a circuit at home or at the gym. You can set up a strength training workout (like dumbbells) and the next one is a jump rope and do each for a minute (at Curves they do 30 seconds per station) and the next could be a mat to do crunches and the next one you jog in place.
I've done it at home with my daughter. I make signs saying "Jumping Jacks" or "Run" or another word and we go around and do different exercises. You can do about 6 of them to start. 3 strength exercises (lunges, squats, crunches, push ups, etc.) and then three cardio (jump, jog, walk, dance, etc) and alternate them.
The new Spark DVD 28 day bootcamp (that you can get a $3 off coupon for from SP) is available at Target and other stores and that has different circuit training workouts and one workout that is only Cardio. I bought it and it's great.

The only thing that I know about circuit training is that they do it at curves! The use of each of the different machines is broken up by doing mat work while you wait to move to the next machine. Where you march in place, jog in place, I'm really not sure. Just keep the body moving during the entire time you are at the center. Did you do a search here on the SP site for circuit training and earn points for it ? Good luck !
