The best type is the one you will do! And keep at it. I think starting with walking is great. Then add a little weight work. If you haven't ever exercised, or are out of shape, try water aerobics since those are fun and you meet people. I started with those exercises and now do the ellipical machine and weight machines. Sometimes I still do water aerobics on my own. The most important thing is that it has to be something you can fit into your day. I've done it while my kids are doing their activities. Rather than sitting on the bench like lots of parents, I do my physical activity then too! That with dieting has helped me lose 50 pounds and keep it off. See my hubs for my tips.
My favorite workout is power walking. I try to walk once a day, at least 30 minutes. I love walking outside the most because I am so inspired by nature. My two black labs love walking too and they keep me moving. They say that you have to find a workout that you love and doesn't feel like work. Walking is mine :-)
The best type of workout is one of two things without a doubt. Swimming or doing road work.(jogging) The reason is they work all the muscles of the body. Put on muscle, lose weight and gain stamina and energy.
For me playing a sport is a great workout. Mind is more on the game rather than the pain I am probably in. Like to swim as well.
There's no one "best" workout for everyone, it depends on your own interests. The best type of workout is one that you enjoy so you'll keep doing it. I personally like dancing and hiking, but the best workouts for someone else may be different. The important thing is that you stay active.

I have tried Insanity, P90X, and Nike+Kinect Training. I tried Insanity first and, as I assumed, at the time I was not in good enough shape for this program. Currently I'm using Nike+Kinect Training 5 days a week plus running and weight lifting. I love it because I have to log on everyday and it...
