If you've ever considered buying a workout DVD, now is a great time - there are more choices available than ever before, giving you an unprecedented variety of home workouts to choose from.
Before you look at workout DVDs, however, it's worth considering what you want from them - having a clear goal in mind will help you to make a good choice.
The great advantage of workout DVDs is that you can use them at home to exercise whenever you want - you don't have to worry about other people watching you, you're not tied to a schedule, and for the price of one month's club membership you can buy a couple of workout DVDs that you can use for years.
What they won't do for you is provide that magic bullet, that motivation that guarantees that you will exercise regularly.
All you have to do now is choose - there are all sorts of choices available, including:
- Celebrity programs
- Step classes
- Weights workouts
- Tai Chi
- Spin programs
Almost any type of exercise you can think of, there's an offering available that will help you to practice it at home.
To make a good choice, decide what you enjoy doing, and what is practical given the space and noise constraints you have.
To figure out how good a program is, use the power of the internet - all the major sites have customer feedback, so you can take advantage of other people's experience to decide which is a good program and which is lemon. Then order the one you want, sit back and wait for the delivery man to come.
