Should You Use Workout Videos?

Workout Videos

Workout and exercise videos are used by more people looking to lose weight than ever before.

You can visit just about any website about health and fitness and see hundreds of different kinds of workout videos and courses.

Before you run out and buy one for yourself, let’s take a look at why so many people are using them, how to choose the best one for you and the optimal way to achieve success using them.

The Benefits of Using a Workout Video

The primary benefit of workout videos is the convenience of working out in the comfort of your own home.

Going to a gym is an ideal place to get in shape but unfortunately, exercising along a hoard of people is not for everyone.

Gyms can be very intimidating especially for those just starting out or those who aren’t already in great shape.

Many newbies prefer to exercise in private.

Another big benefit of these videos is you can workout at a time best suited for you.

You just pop the workout video into your DVD player (or stream it) and you’re ready to go!

You can basically work out at your own convenience without having to get ready, drive, park and deal with other people!

Another great benefit of workout videos is they can add some variety to your workout routine.

There are so many different types of exercise videos these days, you can vary your workout quite a bit.  Nowadays, there are yoga videos, resistance videos, Pilates, dancing, aerobics, cardio, boxing, HIIT, and so on.  The choices are virtually endless!

How to Choose a Video/Program

If you’re just starting out, the vast number of available videos can seem overwhelming.

Here’s a couple f things to keep in mind before you choose one.

First of all, be sure to choose something that seems interesting to you.

Instead of forcing a particular exercise that you hate doing, pick one you like.

For some that might mean cardio-focused, for someone else that might mean yoga.

If you like to dance, pick one of those.

Like we said, the choices are endless.

You can even pick a “multi-discipline” series that incorporates a number of different exercise styles.

Another factor you may want to consider is the physical demands of the exercise video.

If you have bad joints or pain, you may want to avoid high-impact exercises.

If you’re obese or pregnant, you also may want to avoid those programs that are too high intensity.

Remember you can always start out slow and progress to more strenuous programs as you progress.

It’s probably a good idea to talk with your doctor or physician to get their opinion.

Finally, you may want to consider the price, setting, music and qualifications of the instructor before buying any exercise video.

There are wide ranges in these things depending on what your preferences are.

Some of the Most Popular Workout Videos

Here are a few of the more popular workout videos right now:

  • Brazil Butt Lift
  • Ashley Borden 6 Weeks To Sculpted or IGNITE
  • P90X, Insanity and anything by BeachBody
  • Natalie Jill’s Rev4 Rev It Up
  • Bikini Body: Absolution
  • Element 5 Day Yoga
  • Zumba
  • Daily Burn
  • Hip Hop Abs
  • Jillian Michaels:  Various
  • Cardio Pump
  • Belly Beautiful
  • Kathy Smith:  Total Body Toning
  • Just Walk

Of course, this is just scratching the surface of that’s out there.

Once you’ve decided on an exercise program, the main way to get the most benefit is by mentally committing to it for a reasonable amount of time.

Most people tend to use these things a few times and then quit.

That’s the sad truth of the fitness world.

So don’t be one of those people who tries a certain video a few times, gives up and then buys something else (and then repeats the cycle).

You’ll get the most benefit by competing the entire program for at least 4-8 weeks.

Just follow the directions/program laid out by the product you bought.

Once you’ve finished it, you can evaluate your results and move on from there.
