Workout Wednesday: Favorite Fitness DVDs

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - Wow, that Jillian Michaels workout was eeeeaaaaaasy! ...said no one ever.

Happy Wednesday friends!  

How is your week going?  Have you been able to fit in your workouts?  Graham and I took a gorgeous interval run on the beach on Monday so I gave myself a break yesterday.  Life is all about balance, right? :)  

Speaking of fitting in workouts, that can be very difficult with my little man running around.  Luckily I have a whole slew of fitness DVDs from when I was cheering in the NFL.  It was tough to make it to the gym consistently back then because I was working full time.  We also practiced 9-10 hours a week so obviously gym time was not my top priority when I actually had free time.  That's why I loved using DVDs.  A great workout in much less time!

I love fitness DVDs for so many reasons.  First, you save gas and time because you can workout from the comfort of your own home.  Second, they're quick and effective.  Third, they're inexpensive and can be used over & over!  So without further ado, my favorite fitness DVDs are listed below. 

Oh how I love this tough woman!  She really does kick your butt in this 20-minute boot camp style workout.  There are 3 different levels so once you feel comfortable with level one move up to two then three. Your body will be challenged but you should definitely see some positive changes if you stick with it.  

This DVD is very similar to the first, however, I think it's more difficult.  Instead of three levels this one has four.  If you like (and by like I mean you like the results, not necessarily that you like doing them) pushups and planks then this DVD is for you!  I actually used this one to train for Pro Bowl.

This is by far my favorite Pilates DVD.  It actually makes me break a sweat and I always feel like my tummy is tighter the next day.  Hurry, there are only a few left.  

So I have to admit that I don't own this DVD but I did try the workouts when they were free on demand and I love them!  Obviously if DCC produced it, you know it's good. :)

So, have you tried any of these?  Are there any you would like to try or add to the list?

Let me know if you buy one.  I'd love to hear how you like it!
With love & gratitude,


  1. I'm responding to your comment on my blog. 53 miles is amazing!! You should be so proud!!

  2. Thanks Laura! I was trying to get 100 by Valentine's Day and I probably won't get there but I'm going to keep at this pace. :)

  3. I own both those Jillian DVDs and she kicks your butt! It's nice to have an alternative workout, especially when you get in a funk at the gym.

  4. I love my Mari Windsor Pilates DVD set. She helped me get back into shape after having my son. I recently started the routine again as a New Year's resolution. I hope I'm toned by summer again... Yes, it's always harder to exercise when you have youngins...I agree!


Thank you for reading and taking the time to comment. I read each & every one!
