Default Best workout DVD?

I've seen lots of ads on TV for different workout DVDs. I own the 30day shred and a couple others but I'm wanting something that is fun and will keep me motivated. I want something that's fun to do. Any suggestions for a DVD?

I would totally check out Netflix. What's fun for me (30 Day Shred, TurboJam) my sister hates and can't understand why I like them. And I've bought some I thought I would like, but turned out boring (IMO).

It sounds slightly cliched, but it's true that the best workout is the one you'll do.

I'm going to have to try Turbo Jam now. I love the Jillian Michaels DVD's. I alternate the 30 day shred with her yoga meltdown dvd... I recently purchased the Biggest loser Cardio Max- not too crazy about it but it's okay.

I've used many a workout DVD in my time.. and the ONLY one I like and can stick with is Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. It's quick, intense and she's very encouraging without being too perky or annoying.

I also like yoga podcasts or quick poses on YouTube. Fun & free!

I've been using exercise tv (website) for a few weeks and like that I can kinda of preview a trainer before I buy a DVD. I discovered kendall hogan this way. They have a bunch of free full length workouts.

I constantly use Netflix to try out new programs. They have a few, not a huge selection, on instant watch too. Sometimes I'll play it on my laptop and just do a quick workout in my bedroom. It's a nice way to try out different routines- I found a couple of really good yoga videos that way.

S/C/G: This time: 292/163/under 200

Height: 5'6" 1/2


I started off with Turbo Jam. I have since moved on to Turbo Fire. I love Turbo Fire!

4/22/15 My current goal is to get into the 160's. First weigh in after setting goal: 176.8
8/02/15 I was able to get back into the 160's.
My new goal is to not bounce back into the 170's and to work my way down to 160.

I started my most recent weight loss journey January 2008.
I lost 1/2 of my starting body weight and entered into maintenance May 2011.
Now the real work begins!

You can fight it, or do what you've got to do to get it done. The choice is yours. ~Dian
