Beginning something new is always exciting, but it comes with a pinch of dread. You're not sure how it will play out, how to find your groove or if you're even going about it the right way. When it comes to working out, whatever you do needs to be something you enjoy. That's the only way you're going to stick with it! Fortunately, there are a slew of DVDs you can pop in and get your sweat on any time you want. They're designed for the beginner — the motivated, hopeful, but usually directionless individual who really needs a good coach! Time to stock up your exercise arsenal, starting with these DVDS:
The Firm: Super Body Sculpt: This programming offers three workouts: upper body, lower body and core. You can choose to do just one for 10 minutes, or string together all three for a t0tal body workout. You will need weights and a step, so take that into consideration. It guarantees you'll see results in 10 workouts, so if you do five per week, you'll see change in less than two weeks! Let the instructor guide you through each move and help you know when the next move is coming. It's the perfect pace for beginners. Get it here!
