5 Best Workout Videos for Home Fitness

[ 3 ] January 18, 2011 |

Gyms are extra packed with people trying to shed post-holiday inches. I can appreciate the gym, but I don’t like going. I enjoy sweating and stretching into awkward positions in the privacy of my own home.

If you enjoy working out at home with gym workout videos to follow along, then read on! I’ve listed the 5 workout exercise videos that everyone in the office voted for. Choose the ones you love and trim the bill by applying our free Amazon.com coupons.


What You Need: Yoga blocks, mat, dumbbells, pull-up handles, gloves & a chair

When you’re looking to lose massive body fat and turn it into hard muscle this is the choice for you. P90X focuses on “muscle confusion.” This means a variety of exercises are used throughout the workout so that your muscles don’t get used to the movements.

The 90 in the title stands for 90 days. Follow the video 6 times a week for 90 days and you’ll see some crazy results. It’s not easy though, so be ready for an insane workout!

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

What You Need: 3.5 to 5lbs dumbbells

What’s Jillian known for? Pushing you to the limit and motivating you along the way. Just when you’re reaching your breaking point, you’ll hear her saying: “You want a 20 minute workout that delivers? You’re gonna have to earn it!”

Her workouts consist of 3 levels. Do each one for about 10 days before you move on to the next. If you’re struggling, don’t feel bad – just continue with the same level for a few days before you move on.

Turbo Jam

What You Need: A towel!

If you’re bored of regular workout routines or need to have tons of fun to be motivated, this is a great video. These workouts have upbeat music and combine cardio with kickboxing at a steady rhythm. You’ll sweat in places you never thought you could and feel the burn as your body is being sculpted.

Slim in 6

What You Need: For 2nd- and 3rd-level videos you’ll need a workout band and dumbbells.

Slim in 6 combines aerobics and weight training to help boost metabolism and tone muscles. Because you’ll be building muscle tissue, I suggest staying off the scale and measuring inches lost instead. Muscle weighs a lot so your weight might not change dramatically, but your body will!

These home gym workout videos have 3 levels: Start It Up, Ramp It Up and Burn It Up. Do each level for two weeks, 6 times per week for results that blow you away.

Mari Winsor Pilates

What You Need: You’ll need a mat for sure. And for later DVDs, you’ll also need a workout band for balancing and resistance training.

Winsor Pilates videos sculpt your body for a leaner look. Throughout the workout Mari reminds you to “connect to your core.” Your core is your tummy area. She stresses that you should be using your stomach muscles to aid the entire workout. By doing this, breathing becomes steadier and your belly muscles are shaped in record time!
