DVDs For Daily Workouts


We’re all looking for ways to fit exercise into our busy schedules. It doesn’t matter if you prefer low-impact routines that are easily repeated or full-body exercises with limited time, the right workout DVD can make all the difference.

Denise Austin’s DVD provides the 12-minute routine that concentrates on various body parts every day. Each segment is designed to be completed in a series or on its own for a full-body exercise. It’s a great exercise for those who are new to fitness and want to start the fitness routine, or for those who are already active but would like to improve their endurance and strength.

The trainer who made a name for herself on NBC’s The Biggest Loser promises to “eliminate fat.” This three-DVD program will make you sweat. It contains two 10-minute workouts. Don’t be concerned if you think this isn’t the right level for you; each session has easier alternatives for those who cannot do the more difficult exercises.

Jane Fonda, 74, might be a bit displeasing with her cheesy music or headband reminiscent of Richard Simmons. But her workouts are extremely effective. She follows the same routines that she has used in her best-selling workouts, such as upper and lower body isometric exercises, as well as exercises with hand weights. She is a good example of the correct form throughout.

One of the only negative aspects of this DVD is that a recent study by an University of Washington professor found that the use of models highlighted imperfections in the body, with a lot of women’s bodies portrayed as perfect. This DVD offers a 30 day healthy eating plan, and worksheets for self-reflection.
