      Amazon has the best workout videos. Need a discount code? Just google Azon Deal Digger - They have a gold box on the site that will spit out a percentage off of any product that you enter (just type in workout videos). Really neat and I use it all the time and save big.

      Great lens! I like working out at home, it means that I actually get around to it, and where I live there's not a lot of studios or gyms anyway, so it also offers more variety. I love yoga, so that's what I do! I have another favorite than the ones above, but am curious about Jillian, so I'd probably get something with her if I bought something new. Thanks!

      Many of these look like fun! I already do a lot of yoga (and I love it), but it would be fun to try something different, like the Bollywood Dancing or Zumba DVDs.
