Hi all! I am looking to increase my library of fitness videos and I was wondering if everyone could tell me their favorites?

I like Walk Away the Pounds and Dance Away the Inches series. They are both great workouts and keep my interest.

I second the Walk Away the Pounds series--especially her newer ones (Walk Slim, Walk Away Your Waistline, and 3 Mile Weight Loss Walk)!

I love the Zumba dance DVDs. They are a lot of fun and it's a great work out! If you don't want something too intense, I think that the Belly dancing DVDs by Rania are pretty good.

I like "the Firm" videos, probably their older ones, such as "Calorie Killer" and "Cardio Sculpt Blaster" (perfect when I'm time-crunched). Some of my favorite DVDs are "Caribbean Workout" ones...the kick-boxing/step one is really a lot of fun.

Some of my favorites-

Tamilee Webb's I Want That Body

**For Pilates:

Denise Austin's Matwork Pilates dvd

**For Pregnancy:

Crunch Yoga Mama

**For Belly Dancing:

Ruby Jazayre's Private Lesson Series (true belly dance instruction for proper form-it's not an exercise workout)

Have to admit I love the Richard Simmons Sweating to the oldies.
They are fun, they keep you moving and pretty easy to do when you aren't feeling your best. The Walk Away The Pounds With Leslie Sansone is nice too.

Everything is a choice; we make the choice to be what we want to be or just talk about being what we want to be.

God, keep your arms around my shoulders and your hands across my mouth.

Sometimes God doesn't whisper in our ear what he wants us to hear. Sometimes he jumps up and down screaming PUT DOWN THAT COOKIE. We just don't listen.

I love to use my aerobic step and my favorite videos are Christi Taylor, Fantastic 4 and Carol Paradise, Step by Design. They're both tough, but I don't get bored by them.

I love Minna Lessig's "Tank Top Arms, Bikini Belly, Boy Shorts Bottom." Kind of gimmicky in that it's the "it" dvd of the moment, but I really like it. Each segment is only 20 mins, so I can ALWAYS fit one in every morning before work, and I use each segment as my focus for the day. So if I do Tank Top Arms in the morning, when I get home from work, I'll concentrate on arms when I'm at the gym. Provides me with a good three day rotation so I allow my muscles to rest while still doing a good workout every day.
