For lazy-slothlike person (me). Am full of self-loathing but also strangely immobilized.

Weights. Heavier than you think-it won't make you muscly but it will give you lovely shapely arms. Have you got a body pump class near you or could you afford a few sessions with a personal trainer?

If you've got a few pounds to lose you'll need to think about what you're eating too.

Don't need to lose weight, just want to tone up. No classes near me and I don't really want to join a gym... Dvd or YouTube?!

Get a couple of kettlebells and look online for exercises.

Resistance bands, armband weights and a DVD?

Pilates is very good for developing core muscles.
