Your recommendations are solicited - Best workout tape you've done

Guys, I'm ordering for some workout tapes and I need some good tips here.
I'm a intermediate fitness level person. About 132 pounds, 5'1" in height. Main problem area, abs, buns and arms. I'm doing a few workouts tapes as of now, they are Jane fonda aerobics tape and a dance workout. Both I enjoy very much. But I'd like more variety.

What tape would you recommend for me.

The Firm. Bar none the best sculpting, get in shape dvds I've ever done.

Definitely The Firm. I have used the DVDs with rotations provided on their website consistently for the last year and I love it!

I agree - I got into the best shape of my life with The Firm Aerobic Interval Training. (Of course that was 8 years ago when I was just out of college and I had no kids and all the time in the world).

I've also started doing a Kathy Smith kickboxing DVD which is awesome for beginners - really well done but still challenging.

Happy exercising!

Another fan of the FIRM here! I have the incline box videos and man am I sweating after a 45 minute workout.

I've enjoyed a couple of tapes by Kathy Smith, (1) Lifting Weights to Lose Weight and (2) Kathy Smith's kickboxing workout. I also enjoyed doing - and enjoyed seeing results from - Billy Blanks' Tae Bo Advanced tape. I had been doing kickboxing in a gym, but after graduating, needed a fix.

I hope this helps...

For Arms, Abs, and Buns I recommend TamiLee Web's I want that Body. The DVD offers 2 sessions of each body part, about 10-15 minutes each session.

The Next Challenge

I am a personal trainer and by far, my all time favorite circuit training dvd that will effectively sculpt the areas you are having trouble with is Cindy Crawfords 'The Next Challenge'. It uses simple movements, plyometrics, and combining to up the cardio effect and the burn.

I'm horrible about working out. These dvd's have workouts broken down into 10min segments. Great for just starting out and when you don't have 30min or an hour, or just want to work your abs, arms or legs. I think they have videos for yoga and pilates, too.
