Fitness DVDs. You see them everywhere. They are advertised on TV and online. You can find them at the grocery store and Amazon. Often you will even see them placed aside at friends’ homes. Yes, they come in very hand when we are tight on time and still want to get a workout in. They are convenient as you can follow along at any time during the day and from anywhere – your home or hotel room. You have total privacy and have friends or family members join in. And they are definitely way more affordable then joining a gym, enrolling in a class or hiring a trainer.

Almost all fitness DVDs are led by a personal trainer or fitness instructors. Each shares their own workout method to reach a particular fitness goal – may it be weight loss, tighter abs, or larger muscles. Thus, in the spirit of the gift-giving season, I thought I would share with some of my favorite workout DVDs that can help change up your normal routine or help push you through a plateau.
