Many Java Fitness clients do not belong to standard gyms/clubs, preferring to workout elsewhere (e.g., outdoors, at home, at the office gym).  A number of us have tested different exercise videos.  When one of our clients tests out a DVD, we ask them to review it for us, so we can make recommendations to others.

Our recent picks have included:

It depends on what you are looking for, but the P90X series is clearly the most intense and challenging workout of all of the DVD’s we’ve tried so far.  You can follow the program or vary the DVD’s depending on what else you are doing in a given week.  If you can’t get to a Zumba class but like the idea, the Zumba Fitness DVD should keep you interested (particularly if you have a friend join you and a very loud speaker system).  Most of us prefer yoga in a studio, but Swenson and Baptiste’s DVD’s will get you close.  Java is checking out Shaun T’s Insanity next!

There are also a number of web sites dedicated exclusively to reviewing exercise videos.  See, e.g.videofitness.com.  Let us know what you discover!!
