  • I should. I prefer working out at the Y, which is more fun, allows me to read while I work out (I work out HARD), and gives me a break in the middle of my day. But some days, when the kids are sick and can't go in the childcare, it would be great to have a DVD.

    I'd like one I could watch with the kids. Anyone know one like that? No music they couldn't listen to, no offensive talking (ie talking about how you're doing this to look great in a swimsuit, which I'm not), just straight-forward telling you what to do and yet very demanding?

  • Yes I use videos, Currently I'm doing Insanity and ChaLean Extreme. But in the past I lost 50 pounds with Leslie's WATP's dvds. So you CAN lose weight and have success with her workouts. I've also done Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels DVD's. I've just gotten to the point where I felt I graduated from those and wanted to push myself.

  • Yep. We do this group thing- I guess we call it work out group. And a bunch of women get together and bring their videos- we pick one and we work out. You can get a super good work out in- tons of variety (especially if you hit up the library) and I like the social aspect of it.

  • You ought to try Pilates. It might help you. I love Jillian Michaels, but it might be too much impact for you. Have you tried any physical therapy to get your ankle back up and running? It might make a huge difference.
