Question What's your Favorite Workout videos?

I'm looking to purchase some new workout videos... but I need some help. What is your favorite workout DVD and why? All types - cardio, yoga, resistance bands, abs, etc.

Power yoga? It's a tie between American Power Yoga 60 and Travis Elliot's Foundations and/or 108 series. I also like Bryan Kest's original workouts (they are usually $10 for all 3 on DVD). Kurt's Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader yoga workout gives you a good idea, but if you find his website you can stream FREE workouts. The audio and video is not DVD perfect, but it's free.

More Yin Yoga I like Mark Laham and Zyrka Landwijt's Gentle Vinyasa Flow. Barbara Benagh's Yoga for Stress Relief is great. Mark's are 50-65 minutes in length. Barbara's and Zyrka's are 30-60 minutes depending on the practices and lots of options.

I liked Jackie Warner's DVDs a lot for circuit-type workouts. I never thought I'd like her stuff, but I do! I don't care for Jillian at all, but her books are great (for me her personality just doesn't click with mine). That said her Shred workout is really good.

I used to love Cathe Friedrich's step workouts when I did step.

I also loved the original six Firm videos, but most people find them dated. They WORK though.

I hate band work, so I can't comment there. I recently bought Stephanie Huckabee's Powerfit series which uses bands...and it's sitting on my shelf I've heard great things about Tapout too which I think uses bands.

For fun I loved Yoga Booty Ballet, but I really don't burn calories with those at all.

Hope that helps some.

I love the Jillian Michales ones. I have 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30. I find it to be a great workout in under 30 minutes and since she is so popular, you can easily find support forums and success forums from those who are also doing the videos.

Some like Bob Harper's stuff, so maybe alternate and be a hybrid of The Biggest Loser

Vermont that Kelli is my best friend's FAVORITE of all time. She has about four VHS copies and burned them to DVD. She loves it that much and has it memorized
