When it comes to selecting home fitness workouts you have a lot to choose from. I think before making a purchase it’s best to know what results you hope to achieve from your workout before you purchase them.
Some offer strictly a cardio workout with absolutely no strength training. Others offer just the opposite and then there are always the fitness workouts that provide you with both. Not to mention that there is also Yoga and Palates workouts that mainly focus on flexibility and your core.
Knowing what the workout has to offer helps greatly in making the decision to try one. When I first started my personal fitness routine I only was getting a cardio workout through walking. After seeing some results I realized I wanted to tone my muscles which can also produce faster results. So I sought out to find my self mainly a strength training fitness workout.
I did find exactly what I was looking for through none other than an infomercial. What I had selected also provided me with my cardio workout for those days I didn’t feel like walking. To this day I still use that first DVD that introduced me to the world of at home fitness workouts.
Since then yes I have collected quite a few more fitness routines to mix up my workouts. I feel that as you reach your fitness goals and your fitness level increases that you want to continue to challenge your body!
For instance I never really thought I would enjoy Yoga. It seemed too slow paced for me but after finding a routine that offered a faster moving style I did buy it. And to my surprise it was as challenging as my strength training workouts. More recently many of the trainers seem to offer circuit training which is also something I found I enjoy.
You don’t have to have a huge library to get the results you want from your workouts. Just a few good ones that keep you motivated to continue using them. That is all I follow is a few that give me what I want. Of course I do keep my eye out for other workouts that I might want to add. But I always wait to see what people are saying before I make purchase.
