What’s The Best Workout Video?

best workout videos I have had a look at the best of the best workout videos that you can buy online. All theses workout videos can be followed in the comfort of your own home and do not need much equipment  in addition to the initial dvd cost, which is a big plus.

How have I decided what makes a good Workout Video?

1. Value for Money: I have a look at price and see what you actually get for your money.

2. Trainer:  I like to be taught by experts and professionals in the fitness world so it’s important on who leads the workout video. The trainer should also be motivational and fun.

3. The Effectiveness: Do the workouts do what they say on the tin? Can you feel the burn and get results!

4. Fun Factor: Firstly I want the workouts to be effective and get you results but if you don’t find them enjoyable then chances are you will not stick with them. This is very important.

It was very hard to pick the very best in workout videos as there are a lot of effective ones out there, so below are a short list of what I think you should take a closer look at. Also check the ratings for each of the 4 factors outlined above in each of the reviews below.

 

1. Rushfit

I have previously done a full review of rushfit here if you would like to know more. To summarise why i have given the ratings I have; By far the outstanding thing about this program is that you are following a Champion Mixed Martial Arts Fighter, and these guys are among the fittest in the world. They have to be powerful to beat their opponent and have good endurance to last a fight. George St Pierre is a professional and so that’s why I have gone over the odds with a 6 star rating for the ‘trainer’ rating. Many of the moves and exercises mimic MMA moves, and so I have given it 5 stars for fun. All online reviews and results for rushfit seem to suggest, great effectiveness. Crawl the web and all the uploading images are proof. What I notice is everyone loses a lot of fat from their stomach and in many cases have got 6 packs. This correlates with the intensity of how the workouts are designed. High intensity means a mega fat burning session. The rushfit package comes with 6 DVD’s with 2 bonuses. I was going to give rushfit 4 stars for value as you have to buy dumbbells to complement the program but because of all the other factors, such as the effectiveness and the trainer I think it is money well spent.

 

 

2. Chalean Extreme Burn

Value:

Effectiveness:

Fun:                 

 

For a full review in detail of Chalean Extreme click here. With Chalean Extreme you get a little more in the way of fitness equipment. You get resistance bands, Fat burning food guide, the full set of 6 DVD’s with 15 workouts, and a thigh toner band. This is a set of workouts for predominately marketed towards women. The workouts are designed in 30 day phases so that you don’t plateau, so you keep on improving. It is stretched over 90 days and it goes into overdrive. There idea being to speed your metabolism throughout the 90 days. Chalene Johnson’s philosophy is muscle burns more fat, so there more muscle you have the better. This theory is very true. The reason why we have picked Chalean Extreme over her other DVD workout, Turbo Fire, is because turbo fire is a little more focused on complicated moves, which resemble dance moves, which can be trick for some. This workout program does still have that element but not as much. I think this is more effective than Turbo Jam for the reason; more people will be able to stick with it. Chalene is a great motivator, to get you through those last difficult reps and to top it off it is really good value.

 

 

3. Jillian Michaels Extreme Shed & Shred

Value:               

Trainer:            

Effectiveness:

Fun:                   

 

Beware this workout program may make you say ouch! This is all of Jillian Michaels previous DVD’s rolled into one. More workouts combining circuit training with weights and cardio. With extra, plyometrics, yoga poses, balance work, weight training and core moves. 3 stars for fun might seem a bit harsh but compared to the other workouts in this short list it is fair. You will get shredded if you can keep up and if performed the exact way Jillian Shows you. She shows you easier methods of the same exercise if you feel the main exercise is too difficult. Also only some hand weights and a mat is needed.

 

 

 

4. P90x

Value:               

Trainer:            

Effectiveness:

Fun:                   

 

This is the biggest selling of all the workouts to date, and i can see why.  You get 12 workouts, a fitness guide, nutrition plan and 27/7 support. The exercises are very diverse, working every inch of your body. I have deducted a rating point from trainer, just because sometimes i found Tony Horton somewhat annoying. That might be a totally personal thing, but there was something about him that came across, as being fake. As a comparison, Chalene Johnson or George St Pierre are more real and that’s just something you will understand or won’t. As a trainer Tony seems to know what he is talking about.  There is a reason why this has sold so many copies and that is because it is very effective and that’s why P90x shows up on the short list.

 

 

5. PussyCat Dolls Workout

Value:               

Trainer:            

Effectiveness:

Fun:                   

 

Get your sexy on! This might be the hottest DVD Workout ever and you get to learn some of the Pussycat Doll’s signature dance moves. You won’t actually get taught by the pussycat dolls I’m sorry to disappoint, but the choreography is by Robin Austin.

The first thing to point out is that if you want killer dancer legs like Nicole Scherzinger, then you will have to bust these exercise routines all day every day, and that, frankly, isn’t going to happen is it? If you want a fitness workout DVD there are better ones out there that will be more effective and quicker. But, there’s a BIG but, this is so much fun. Your other half might enjoy some of these moves as well. Just make sure to practise them before you show him your new dance moves which can prove a little tricky.  This is the only reason why i have chosen this for the short list, purely for the fun factor.

 

 

6.  Brazil Butt Lift

Come on, a guy bringing out a training program for a women’s butt, Perv! haha. Needless to say he’s loving his job right now, lets be honest! Apart from the fact ladies that you are getting trained by a guy (pervert ;) ) his butt workouts are very good. Many of the butt exercises, you will never of seen before, and are very effective. To top it off it is very fun, you will learn new specific butt exercises that work, which is a problem area for many women, and will get you results if followed religiously.
