One of the best ways to get a good workout when you think you don’t have time to go to the gym is to get a workout DVD you can do in your home. You may think that you don’t want to go to the gym because you feel too large, or perhaps it takes you too long to get there and back. If this is something you are thinking, make sure that is a real issue and not just a cop out. If you really want the workout but can’t get to the gym, a great workout DVD is just what you need.
When you are choosing a workout DVD, you have to consider what it is you like to do. If you choose something that you are going to get bored with rather quickly, you are going to end up stopping your workouts due to boredom. I once had a Body of Steel workout DVD and I stopped using it because I couldn’t stand it another moment. You really have to find something that works for you, and remember that perhaps you should change what DVD you use on occasion to stop yourself from getting bored of the same workout day after day.
If you have friends that are also using a workout DVD, you might want to work out together. If you don’t feel comfortable with this, you might have another option. You can still workout on your own, but you can take walks with each other a few times a week. You can add extra workout time to your weekly schedule this way, and you can find a way to spend time with each other while doing so. You may want to do a workout DVD swap with a few of these friends so you can all switch up your routines.
You should know that a workout DVD does not have to have the word ‘workout’ on it. You can use any sort of movement for a workout. I used to use the various Wiggles’ DVDs to work out, though I have been slack in that as of late. I do have to get them back out and get moving again.
The Wiggles have a lot of different movies out there, and there are many that will give you a good workout if you try to keep up with the dances. I recommend the live concert ones for this purpose.
