Back on Track: Order Some New Fitness DVDs

If you're doing the same types of workouts over and over again, the boredom can lead to skipping out on exercise entirely. So before that happens, you've got to mix up your routine a little. One way to do that is to try out some new fitness DVDs. So get online or head to the bookstore and pick up a few new videos. Need ideas? Here are some of my faves:

Shiva Rea — Creative Core + Upper Body: This yoga video is a total body workout, but like the name suggests, it really focuses on your upper body. I was so sore the next day with all the push-up sets you do in between poses. It's a great video for beginner and advanced yogis alike.
Zumba Total Body Transformation System: It's a low impact, fun workout, and the Latin music is infectious — it's hard to stay still with the enticing beats.

To see the rest

.

10 Minute Solution KnockOut Body: This kickboxing video comes with weighted gloves, and I was glistening with sweat by the end with all the kicking, jumping, punching, lunges, and sculpting moves.
Element Pilates Weight Loss For Beginners: The perfect introduction for beginners, but veterans won't be bored, especially if you use the workout to ease into the day.
Hoopnotica — Hoopdance Basics: Hooping is a unique workout that uses an adult-size weighted hula hoop. Not only is it an awesome cardio workout, but all the tricks you can learn also sculpt your core and upper body.

I'm a fitness dvd junkie! I love the Shiva Rea - Creative Core + Upper Body. You do 9 sets of vinyasa that includes 12 pushups with each vinyasa. It's insane...I end up doing lots of plank and chatarunga (spelling?) because I can't do that many pushups. I also love Shiva's Yoga Shakti and Surf Yoga Soul. Love Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (simple and effective), the Core Fusion DVDs (I'm sore from this right after the workout - the abs work is insane, I still can't do it without resting), and I love Core Rhythms Lower Body Sculpt. It's fun and I work up a sweat and I can really feel my thighs burning. Oh and they have this calf raise that makes my calfs burn like crazy. My calfs looks so toned and lifted since doing this workout.

30 day shred is my favorite. Each level is different enough so you don't get bored and each one leaves me feeling sore/worked out.

I go to the library and check out new DVDs every so often to spice up my collection. I also look for new DVDs on Netflix...you can watch a lot of them instantly from your computer.

What am I talking about, I meant Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred, not crunch. Silly me.

Cool list. I really, really want to try Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Crunch DVD, as well as that Piloxing DVD you reviewed a while back (at least, I think it was on fitsugar, lol, I read a lot of fitness blogs)

The kickboxing one looks fun! I've always wanted to do Kickboxing but my gym only offers it at the exact time on the exact day that I can't show up :(
