The early morning hours can be the perfect time to squeeze in a workout, but going to the gym at the crack of dawn might not be something look forward to. Having a set of fun workout DVDs on hand can help you kick off that morning fitness routine with less stress. You can just do the routine in the comfort of your living room, in a garage, or your home gym room. A workout at home will save you time as you get ready for the busy day ahead. Stick with your at-home program for the long haul and you'll (finally) start to see some results.
Try any of these workout DVDs for your early morning workouts:
Can't make time for Zumba classes at your local fitness studio? Pick up the official Zumba DVD collection so you can dance away those extra pounds. Zumba Fitness is still one of the hottest fitness trends and you can take your pick of beginner to advanced workout DVDs. It's basically a cardio workout and the advanced workouts include interval training to help you get sculpted and toned - all while burning hundreds of calories per hour. Zumba routines are a mix of salsa, samba, merengue, and cumbia dance moves.
Looking for a bootcamp-style routine that will whip you into shape fast? Commit to 60 days of INSANITY, a supercharged cardio workout that can be done in less than 45 minutes every day. You'll be focusing on interval training, plyometric circuits, and other sports training routines to burn calories and increase your endurance. Make sure to take the "Fit Test" at the beginning, middle, and end of the 60-day plan to gauge your progress. If your primary goal is weight loss, make sure you are eating properly while doing these intense workouts. INSANITY does come with a nutrition guide or meal plan to help you reach your goals.
If you're a fan of yoga or have always wanted to try it, schedule a yoga cardio session in the mornings and get your day off on the right start. The Kundalini Yoga Cardio, Stretch, & Strengthen DVD isn't like your standard meditation-style yoga routines. This one is focused on stretching and strengthening your core muscle groups and also boosting your heart rate with high-energy movements. It's a challenging but fun workout that can help you stay slim and limber this season - and beyond.
