Work out videos for the unfit

I injured my knee 6 weeks ago and have been off work. In that time I've gained 12lb from sitting around and eating out of boredom. My bmi is now 35. I've been given clearance to start exercising but I'm so unfit I get out of breath walking up the stairs at the minute. I'm getting a fit bit so I can track my steps etc, but also wanted to incorporate more exercise. I'm really not into the gym or running (slight prolapse and history of SPD) but I did enjoy dancing when I was younger. Can anyone recommend any dance style work out videos for people with very poor stamina?

Start by walking or swimming to build up your base stamina a daily 15min walk to start with then work up to half an hour.

Then you could look at beginner shred, it is a 20-minute work out start at level one do that for a couple of weeks before moving to level 2 then level 3. You will need a set of dumbbells and enough space to lie on the floor.

Hi Karmin, I'm looking for a dance style work out video I've recently gave bodyboss a go and don't find HIIT training any fun so I give up x
