Default gotta love Karen Voight

Karen Voight has some awesome videos and DVDs. I especially love her Yoga Fusion (30 mins. strength and 30 mins. relaxation) and her Firm and Burn. Her teaching is impeccable and she looks so fit that she is very motivating. Hard to believe she is in her mid to upper 40s.

Default go cindy

My all time favorite workout tapes are the Cindy Crawford series. Not only are they not boring to watch (they look more like a music video) but the workout has always been very challenging. It combines leg work (which gets you sweating) weights and ab work.

Her second tape "the next challenge" is pretty tricky. I recommend starting with her first one.

Default windsor pilates

I have the video package for Windsor Pilates

It took a long time for me to execute some of the moves, never realized how wimpy my abdominals really were!!

But it does get easier, but patience is necessary--You really need to work on positioning and breathing properly

I feel my abs now,something that in the past no matter how many crunches I did, I never felt they were worked!!

i like leslie sansone's old tapes"walk aerobics" and "advanced walk aerobics". i just bought her "walk away the pounds 1,2,&3" dvd which i like too. i find she talks way too much so i listen to her a few times to learn the routine and once i've done that i mute her and put on my own music and it's great.

Default Firm rocks

My recommendations for GREAT workouts:

FIRM most are great but my faves are:

Super Cardio
Super Sculpting
Tortoise & Hare
Body Sculpt & Cardio Sculpt (new ones with new fanny lifter)
Super Cardio Sculpt & Cardio Sculpt Blaster ( shorter than old FIRMS,
only 30-40 min) they are very time effeceint but get your heart rate up


I used to really like all her tapes but I find them less effective now that
I have become more fit. But I still really like:

Aerobox (gets you breathless)
Kickbox - very empowering


I have three tapes Energize, Tone & Sweat. Who knew that yoga could
be hard and build muscle - well look ar Madonna. Plus he is very, very
good looking to watch doing yoga - what a bod!


I have three yoga tapes (hatha yoga - not hard just good strecthing)
Joy of Yoga, Fat Burning Yoga & Candlelight Yoga. I also like Boot Camp
and Burn & Firm but they haven't been used much since i discovered

Love her Pilates Body Reform series. You can actually work your
inner thighs crazy!!! If you ever watched any of her earlrier tapes
and tehy watch this one ...her boob job is very obvious!

Mari Winsor and her class of wooden students are annoying but it
is a good workout to alternate with cardio & weight training.
I have all seven tapes. the best are Advanced Body Slimming &
Buns and Thighs

Great Yoga (am yoga & stress relief yoga) and AMAZING Pilates
tapes. the best is Body Band Workout with Ana Caban. a very cool site

So I alternate all these tapes with a cool dvd I got of bellydancing by Dolphina. If you get bored, you will lose don't get bored!!

Default that is so funny...


I do the SAME thing with walk away the pounds.(listen to my own music)If I hear leslie say "how bout that good posture all the way threw your bout that " i think i will kill myself. And another really bugs me when that one woman always pats her butt. Oh and people are always walking and kicking out of sinc. I think i've done that tape too many times.

I have a new favorite tape though (actually dvd). It's the Fitness heaven top ten workouts. 12 hours of workouts for 14 bucks at media play. Most of the workouts suck but i really really love the "kick butt I" and "kick butt II" it's like tybo only alot more fun! Also there is a good pilates workout and yoga one too.


I'm going to do my "kickbutt II" tape right now.

Thumbs up Reebok step aerobics

The Reeboks step aerobics is very challenging if you're into stepping.
I'm so glad I found this thread. I'm bidding for the winsor pilates set. It looks like a good one.
I also have the Taebo series but it's hard on my ankle.

Good thread

Have a great LC day

Graphiste (and all interested parties),

I'm looking for a beginners bellydancing dvd ... would you recommend this one or is it for folks who already have some experience with this kind of dance?

Can anyone recommend fun/effective DANCE workout videos?

Since moving away from an area where Jazzercise is taught, I miss it SO much. Dancing was FUN, challenging, and the hour FLEW by.

I want to DANCE and do some floor work.

Any recommendations?

thanks :-)

Thumbs up Leslie Sansone

I absolutely LOVE the Leslie Sansone WAP tapes. I havent gotten to the annoyed level yet. LOL

If I hear leslie say "how bout that good posture all the way threw your bout that " i think i will kill myself. And another really bugs me when that one woman always pats her butt. Oh and people are always walking and kicking out of sinc.

I laughed at this...She IS a little too cheery, and they aren't perfect, but that is one thing I like about it - they are REAL people. They mess up and so do I. I like that it is always the same people in the series cause they almost become (for lack of a better word) like family. And Debbie (yes I know their names ) does talk about her butt a lot. The worst is - I never feel it in my butt...I feel it in my legs! LOL
Thanks for the laugh Jon I won't watch it in the same way tomorrow morning
