Work It Out (At Home)

While I have found some classes at the gym that I like (kickboxing, Zumba), they aren't scheduled when I want to exercise (6:45 am), and getting to the gym, getting changed, etc. wastes 30 minutes. So I like to exercise at home. The trick to exercising at home is variety. (Actually, that's the trick to exercising in general.)

So, for you, dear readers.

5 Fabulous Exercise DVD Resources:

1. Collage Video
Hands down, the best workout video resource I have ever seen. They have reviews, they have clips, they have everything. If the DVD you want isn't on their list, it's not worth doing.

2. Netflix-live streaming
Sure you've streamed movies, but did you know you can also instantly stream workout videos? Just click on the Sports & Fitness genre. Most of the movies they stream are from The 10 Minute Solution line, but all those videos are stellar. (You aren't able to mix up the 10 minutes segments like you can with the DVD, but it's great nonetheless.)

3. SwapADVD
Swap DVDs for just the price of shipping. I've ordered over 10 videos, and shipped about 7, and every transaction has been positive.

4. Fitness Magazine's Create A Video Workout/Video Workouts
You will need to create an account for the personalized Video Workouts, but the viewing of all workouts is free.

5. Exercise TV
Watch various workout videos all for free! You can also sign up (& pay for) access to more videos.
