I have to say like Mary that Leslie Sansone walking dvds are great. I've tried Prevention's dvds and they make me feel like I have 2 left feet! You get a total body workout with Leslie if u can give them a try they are 1-2-3-4 and 5 mile walks where u work your way up!

I'm a library renter too :) The good thing about doing it is if you don't like the video, you just return it and try another one.

I know exactly where you're coming from with feeling out of sync and lagging behind. For this very reason, my two favorites are the Gilad videos and the Tae-Bo videos. I did the learning video for Tae-Bo for about ten days before I got the hang of it. Even the learning video is a good workout (excellent for core).

If you find others that are easy to follow, please post them here. I'm always looking for something new!

i bought the dummies ball dvd. she goes thru every move in detail, so even i can get it. then she does the # of reps. i would like to try the free videos from spark, but my exercise area and my internet are not near each other, so if yours are i would try those. Free is a really good price. i bought my videos at half.com for about $3.50 ea plus $2.29 shipping. Evaluate at collagevideo.com, bought one from them at full price, cuz the rating/video clips are soo good, that i felt bad not buying something.

Try the Leslie Sansone walking videos. They are a great workout and there are no tricky steps/routines to learn. Mary

I can relate (I havenít exercised in at least 20 yrs) ... still feel out of sync but those pause/rewind buttons are the ticket. I also think finding and sticking with the beginner videos is also key so that you can actually keep up and avoid becoming discouraged. I'm currently rotating 3 videos, two dance and one walk away the pounds which seems to be enough to keep me moving and interested at this time. So donít give up Ö with practice youíll get better at it and find what works for you. Good luck!

Best suggestion - whatever video you're doing, make extensive use of the rewind feature!

I haven't really exercised regularly in...well...years but I've been trying hard lately. I'm cheap so I rent exercise videos from our public library. The problem is I'm so uncoordinated I have a hard time keeping up so by the time I have one move down the video has already advanced to combining it with other moves at the speed of light. I don't want to go to an actual class and embarrass myself. Anyone else have this issue? Any video recommendations or tips on how to "develop" coordination? Thanks emoticon
