Hi all- Not sure if Im posting in the right place? So apologies if not.

I've got 2 tae-bo DVDs that I've been using for years now an over the last month or so have been alternating them every other day.

I love tae bo because it gets me in shape so quickly and I like the fact that each dvd has an hour long work out plus a 30 minute workout if I'm more pushed for time.

Does anyone have any recommendations please? I'm a fussy bugger grin and don't like anything 'faddy' like salsacise or celeb workouts, or anyhting requiring long and difficult routines. Also nothing that takes up too much space floor space in the living room is limited!

Have you considered going outside to a green gym or similar?

If you are desperate for something with a TV get a WII and WII fit - tis v good.

Thanks whomoved

Just always found that DVDs work for me cos I can put them on anytime to fit with my routine and I think if I was exercising outside it would be easy to make excuses if it was raining, etc.

Anyone got any other exercise/workout DVD recommendations?

I have Tae Bo DVDs so maybe similar tastes - get yourself a kettlebell and a kettlebell DVD - really gives you a good workout and you see results very fast.

I have an 8kg and a 12kg kettlebell and a set of drill-style kettlebell workouts from Ebay and it is really good - wish I had discovered it ages ago.

Thats a new one on me smultron- I have never heard of a kettlebell! It sounds quite scary, off to google it now!

I also have a collection of Tae Bo dvd's which I do at home, they are fantastic workouts.

I alternate them with Davina McCall's dvds which I find very good, she works out with 2 personal trainers Mark & Jackie Wren.

I have 3 of hers, 'High Energy Five' which consists of 5 intensive sections, Aerobics, legs, Pump, Abdominals & boxing, 20 mins each section, I mix & match these so will do 2 or 3 of the sections in one go.

'Power of 3' 3 routines which focus on legs & bums, upper body & abdominals, I usually do all 3 routines in one go.

'My three 30 minute workouts' Pump, Cardio Box & Core Stability, again I mix & match these usually do 2 at a time. I have some weights which I use with them.

I'm certainly going to look more into the kettlebell workouts.
