Saving on Fitness DVDs

One of the New Year’s resolutions for many people is exercise and weight loss.  Some people prefer the accountability and support of a fitness club.  However, if you prefer to work out at home there are several DVDs available from a variety of exercises and difficulty levels.

If you want to try exercise programs before purchasing them, there are a couple of ways to try them without needing to purchase them.  Many public libraries have a selection of workout DVDs.  Another option is to check out YouTube.   A couple of weeks ago I checked out a Jillian Michaels YogaMeltdown DVD.  At our local library DVDs can be checked out for one week.  If there is not another request for it, you may be able to renew it for an additional week.

I also found this DVD and others on YouTube.  Also, on YouTube I found a segment on a 3 mile walk in 45 minutes at home.  It consists of a variety of simple steps that you can do in your home and walk 3 miles.  It is especially helpful for our climate where it is difficult to walk outside during the winter.  I have completed the session the past two days.  There is also a 30 minutes version which is  2 miles.

These are a couple of ways to try DVDs before purchasing them or to have a variety of workouts without the expense and clutter of extra DVDs.
