a while back I bought a workout dvd system called ''x-train fit at home'', it has 8 different dvd's, one for chest/back, one for arms, one for legs, one for core, one for circuit training, one for cardio, one for yoga, and one for stretching (I think, if I remember correctly). I got it from Amazon, but I can't remember how much it was, but its a lot cheaper than things like p90x and Insanity, that kind of thing. Of course it depends on what you want to spend, but the workouts are really good. Worth a look anyway!
I wonder if anyone has thought about youtube they have all kinds of videos on exercise and I'm sure you could find what your looking for. You can download them for later viewing also and if you want to get really involved you could transfer them to a dvd. Just a thought.

Let me pitch in with a vote for Leslie Sansone's videos, although I find that even her videos with strength training have more cardio than weight training. It is a good place to start, though.
I, personally, love the Jillian Michaels Beginner tape(s). Her 30 Shred and other videos are pretty tough, but the Beginner one has good circuit training with strength training mixed with cardio bursts. I haven't tried any of her Biggest Loser videos, but they may also be useful...
And really go to checkout what your Library has. And if you know you want to try a specific one, ask if the can get it from another Library. They will have a list of titles available to borrow. And check out your TV stations...we have a Health Channel, that has programs of every exercise - Armchair exercises to Zumba!
Good for you!

There is a spark people boot camp DVD you can order. Other than that, I would check a sporting goods store or the sporting goods section of Walmart for DVDs. I have not seen any so can't recommend but I have seen videos there.

I really need suggestions for strength training videos. I CAN'T use the videos here because I don't have internet in the room I can work out in. I need a dvd that I can buy or check out from the library. I have a resistance band, hand weights, and a stability ball. This is all the equipment I can afford at this time.
Is there a sparkpeople video with this equipment? If so where can I buy it? What is the name?
