The 10 Best Fitness DVDs for Brides
Clear some space in your living room and crank up the speakers—these 10 at-home workouts are going to get you in the shape of your life, and just in time for your wedding day.
Even the most fitness-loving brides will admit that cardio can be a bit boring—especially if you're spending a half an hour or more trudging away on the treadmill. Shake things up with Rhythmica Cardio Dance Party's three, fast-paced workouts. The Latin-inspired routine is packed with hip-swiveling moves that attack the core, while the sharp, hip-hop style sculpts your arms, abs, and lower body. The final workout, called the "Get Fit House Party," feels closest to the type of choreography you'd see a pop star perform—a fusion of club dance styles with lots of plyometric hops. Some of the combinations are challenging, but there's enough repetition that you'll have 'em all down by the last round. And the routines are really no more difficult than the dance classes you'd take at the gym—you simply get the benefit of sweating, shimmying and shaking it in your own living room sans an audience. Plus, who cares if your technique isn't perfect? Just keep moving as fast as the enthusiastic instructor and you're guaranteed a sweaty workout session.
