Fitness DVDs - How to Find the Best Fitness DVD for Your Body

- by Joey Atlas - M.S., Exercise Physiology

Choosing the right fitness dvd can be confusing, frustrating and sometimes overwhelming. But, if you go about it correctly you can find the best fitness program for your lifestyle and long term goals.

The secret to fast and permanent fitness success depends very highly on your choice of fitness dvds. With tens of thousands of them to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you?

The choices are endless and the variety of fitness dvds that are currently available can be somewhat overwhelming when trying to figure which fitness program will give you the best results. There is a common sense process you can go through to help narrow down your choices and help you hand pick the exact fitness dvds that are most appropriate for your specific needs and goals.

First, you must assess your fitness preferences. Do you want to join a health club? Would you rather workout in the privacy of your own home? Are you interested in using minimal equipment, if possible? Do you want to exercise with weights or would you prefer a fitness dvd that doesn't require weight training? Do you prefer to workout with music? Or would you rather be able to choose your own music? Do you want to watch one fitness professional on screen or do you want to see a group of people doing the fitness program?

Second, you should assess your starting point. Are you a 24 year old beginner? Are you a 39 year old fitness veteran looking for some variety? Are you a sixty-five year old 'starting all over again'? Are you extremely out of shape and overweight or do you just need to tone and firm up a bit?

The best fitness dvds are structured to incorporate principles of gradual progression and ability specific fitness programming for all levels of fitness. These types of fitness dvds can take a beginner through various levels over time and can also provide plenty of intensity for someone who has been working out regularly but is looking for something to bring about better results.

Third, you should research the fitness professional behind the fitness dvd or dvds you are interested in. While a lot of the big names occupy shelf space in Walmart, Target and similar stores, there are a good number of grass-roots fitness pros who are creating and marketing their own brands of unique, safe, efficient and extremely effective fitness dvds.

One secret way to do this is to find a fitness professional who interests you. Then run a search of their name on Google or Yahoo. See what kind of results you get and see what else you can find out about their fitness dvds.

Fourth, make sure the fitness dvds you purchase come with at least a six month, or longer, return policy. A thirty day guarantee is worthless and most people don't really get into a fitness dvd until the first six to eight weeks from date of purchase.

You want enough time to use the dvds and see if you are starting to feel the changes you are seeking. If the fitness dvds you have chosen are good ones, then you will see results much sooner and you will not want to return them anyway.

Take some extra time to choose your fitness DVDs carefully - the results you get will be worth the extra effort.
