Exercise DVD's

Postby Ally » Tue Aug 22, 2006 2:25 pm

Hi there lovely peoples just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for exercise DVD's :?:

I need to get some that are good for really overweight, preferably ones that show different fitness levels so that as I lose weight I can increase the intensity. If you know of any good ones please list them for me!! I used to have some old weight watchers exercise video's, but I played them to death. I am interested in any form, whether it be anything from pilates to just a general workout

Thanks heaps

Hi ally

check out your local library, you can find some there and theyre free to borrow and you can then return them when you feel like a change- or re-borrow them.

i love my afternoon workouts in the loungeroom i blast the music and most importantly have fun :)

I definetly recommend the walk away the pounds with Leslie Sansone, dvd as well , I have the 3 of them you start of slow and can build up to a 3 mile walk when your ready. You can buy them individually or as a set of the 3. I bought mine from kmart I think.

They were and are, great for someone like me who hadnt exercised for some time :lol:

Yoga

If you are wanting to try Yoga but are a bit worried about being on the ground. I found Yoga For Dummy's was very good. They give alternative positions and there is a seperate section of the DVD for people who have the hang of it a little better than others.

I have "hotpants" which I think is great. Its a variety of little dance routines which go for about 8 minutes each. You dont feel as if your having a huge workout but you actually do..

I also have areobics oz style fat burner 2. I likes it at first but it gets kinda borning. But honestly it pushes you

And I have a kick boxing one. I havnt done it in ages, its great but extremly tiring and you can feel it the next day :D

I have a video tape of Leslie Sansones very first walk aerobics and it is fabulous but my video is broken :(

I am watching some of her DVD's on ebay at the moment too - they are soooo good for anyone who is starting out.
Every day I am getting thinner and thinner.....

"The Hollywood Trainer" series with Jeanette Jenkins is great! I have the Kickboxing Bootcamp, Pilates, Cardio Sculpt, Abs and Cross-Training dvds and they are really good.

The girl who takes them isn't totally annoying and perky like some, and she actually has a realistic body, ie bigger muscly legs and arms.

The Yoga Zone Yoga DVD's are also great. And surprisingly, the Geri Halliwell GeriBody Yoga is great too.

I use to have Walk Aerobics by Leslie Sasones (but it was under her old surname) and that was fantastic as even though it was low impact - you felt a good work out while doing it..but after it finished you felt as though you hadnt exercised at all....so had plenty of energy to get on with the day...- however this tape has since gone missing.

I am now using Walk you way Slim by Prevention fitness systems. Its great as they have three different ladies exercising at once and you just follow the one that you can keep up with. After a couple of weeks you will find yourself following the intermediate lady and then eventually the advanced lady. I got it from Rebel Sport about a year ago..and I think it was still being advertised in the latest slimming & health magazine!!
