An Exercise Video allows you to workout in the comfort of your own home

Exercise videos are a great way to get a workout out at home. If you don’t want to go to the gym for whatever reason, (too far to travel, fear of being out of shape, like to workout at own pace) exercise videos provide a solution to your exercise needs. With new exercise routines such as yoga and pilates coming out on DVD and video it really is possible to get any type of workout in your own home.

I think the best thing about these videos is that they are convenient in that you can do them at anytime of day or night. They also provide a one-on-one personal trainer style workout. You can rewind at any time to review the exercise and make sure you understand it so that you can get perfect form. Most exercise videos are full of positive reinforcement and affirmations. It is good to hear success stories and “you can do it”!

You can more accurately measure your results with a video because you are doing the same video for an extended period of time so you will know if you have improved either in cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility, or strength. If you are doing a different routine in a gym class sometimes it is hard to notice your improvements.

Another good thing about exercise videos is that they are inexpensive. You can collect them and enjoy varied workouts and instructors for very low costs. They are also a great way to loose weight.

The key to losing weight is burning more calories than you consume. An Exercise video like Workout Warrior can take care of the calorie burning part of this duo. The body was made to move! When you exercise and eat healthy the benefits are priceless! You feel great, are sick less often, have greater range of movement, less pain, and a better mental outlook.

A few things to remember about exercise videos:

• Pick an exercise video for your level of fitness.

• Pick a video that interests you and seems fun to you

• Share videos with friends for a varied experience.

• Set aside time to workout to your video. Make it a ritual.

• If you start getting bored with a routine – Find another one! But don’t quit!

• Remember that moving your body is fun!

• Follow the instructions and warnings that come with the video

Some good packages include equipment with the video such as an exercise ball which is a good way to enhance your fitness. There are so many different videos out there that provide a workout for different body parts like the abdominals, floor workout, exercise workout, mat workout or a complete body workout.
