Top 5 Weight-Loss Workout Videos

5 videos and DVDs for ideal weight loss

Weight-loss DVDs and online video workouts can be a life-saver if you’re struggling with your weight. For many people, going to the gym is not an option for various personal reasons: a demanding schedule, a lack of local facilities — even feelings of shame around their weight can keep them at home. But thanks to DVDs (and now online streaming video), you can create a professional weight-loss video collection that caters to your specific needs in the privacy of your own home.

If you don’t know if Pilates is your thing, do you really want to pay for an expensive class to find out? Dance sounds fun, but that may be a little advanced for those new to the fitness scene. What about yoga? How do you know which style is right for you without signing up for classes?

Thankfully, DVDs and video on demand services, such as GaiamTV.com, are a lot less expensive than signing up for five different classes at your local gym. If you’re interested in weight loss but haven’t yet selected the exercise avenue you want to take to reach your goal, here’s a list of five of the top weight-loss DVDs to help you navigate your options.
