4. "10-Minute Solution" series. You can choose from toning,
cardio, or yoga. Each video in this DVD series is
divided into six, 10-minute sections. "It allows customers success to make
it through 10 minutes and as they progress, they can mix and match any way they
want to," says Glenna.
5. Minna Lessig's One-Minute Workouts. "The beauty of this
DVD is you can program the body part you want to work, your level, and how long
you want to work, and it randomly selects the exercises for you from 127
one-minute exercises," says Zurowski. Every workout is different. This
offering makes great use of the DVD technology, she says.
6. Crunch Fitness Pick Your Spot Pilates with Ellen Barrett.
This is concise, well-taught, and easy for beginners to follow, says Zurowski.
With great imagery and plenty of modifications, this video is also divided into
three, 10-minute segments.
7. Crunch Candlelight Yoga. Taught by Sara Ivanhoe, this
beginner DVD is slow-paced and thorough, and all the poses are very simple,
8. Videos by Leslie Sansone. You can choose from several walking and
toning videos that are great for beginners because the moves are easy to follow
and Sansone is very motivational, says Zurowski.
9. Debbie Rocker's Walking for Weight Loss. Rocker uses basic
moves anyone can do and is very motivating, says Glenna. And because it's
filmed in Hawaii, the scenery is breathtaking.
10. Crunch's Cardio Salsa. Great for the younger person, says
Glenna. It's contemporary with a colorful set and offers no-impact, basic moves
that you can also take out to the dance floor.
11. Gin Miller's Everybody Steps. Since people are often
intimidated by step aerobics, this video rates high. It starts you out on the
floor, learning the moves, before you get on the step, says Zurowski.
12. Kari Anderson's GO: Step for Beginners. This is a bit more
complicated, but clearly executed if you want to try a step video. Anderson
previews the moves and breaks down the steps well, says Glenna.
