Step Aerobic DVD - Trying to find some good ones.

Working out at home. Right now I enjoy stepping but most DVD's I think either horrid or too difficult (I am between beginner and intermediate). The 2 only DVD's I REALLY like so far is the original THE REEBOK VIDEO and THE REEBOK POWER WORKOUT. With both of them I love the music and the setup and I can follow the cues etc. - except that the second one is still too difficult and only repeating the first half of the first DVD is getting old. As this is the only workout I get I would love to find something more which is fun, best would be in high definition but I know this is probably wishful thinking. I got two from Cathe but boy, I can't even follow the warmup part, way over my head. I also have STEP which I like but again, it is getting boring, I do 3 steps a week. Any input welcome!

Walking Aerobics DVD

I love the Leslie Sansone Walk Aerobics DVDs. She has a work out for virtually any person of any fitness level, age; she has workouts for pregnant women and combination workouts of aerobics and toning. I found mine on And you'll really work up a sweat without hurting your joints, the workout can be done in a very limited space, too.

I never considered WALKING, but after browsing over an hour on Amazon all the different DVD's from Lesllie, I've decided to give this a try - it sounds actually like fun AND useful!

I love the Leslie Sansone walking DVDs, too. I've lost more than 30 pounds so far, mostly with walking and some weight-lifting.

I also LOVE step aerobics. I haven't done it for a long time because I've had hip trouble since I had 2 babies, but I'm looking forward to getting back to it as my fitness improves. The STEP REEBOK original tape is one of my favorites. A few other "easy to follow but still a good workout" step tapes you might enjoy (these are all older tapes, but you can probably find used copies pretty cheap on eBay or ...

Thank you for the step aerobic ideas. Sometimes, when I read all the comments at Amazon in the end I still do not know if I will like it or not as tastes vary. Also, e.g. I watched a small preview from the CATHE's DVD's and I thought that will work but then I didn't like them at all. So knowing that you also like the STEP REEBOK original video makes me feel much better to try your suggestions.

I'm really excited now with so many things to workout!

Gin Miller is the woman who 1) invented step aerobics and 2) did the STEP REEBOK video you like so much. I've done some of her other step DVDs and lovelovelove them. She's easy to follow and, as a person, very likable. I can't recommend her videos enough. Try, and enter her name in the search box. That website allows you to see a preview of each video they sell so you can get an idea of what the video is like.

Go to the website below. They sell all exercise DVD's/VHS. I use their website for additional opinions from the staff and customers and then get it used at amazon or ebay.

thank you

Thank you for the tips. Yes, I know that it is Gin Miller and I checked out some other tapes of her and I do have the 'everybody steps'. My problem with her newer stuff is that I don't like this 'soothing' voice she uses, I liked the straight on ones much better. But I will look again through her other videos then the ones I have, maybe I will find more that I like. I do have the one 'straight like a stick' (or similar) and that one I do like.

I love the link to the site where I can watch some short previews of the dvd's, I've gone through a lot of them and have now a ton on my wishlist (LOL, worth $300, haha). It REALLY helps in estimating if I will like the style, voice etc. or not.

Thanks for all your input!

I get my DVD's from Collage Videos. I love Gin Miller, Cathe, Debbie Rocker, Kari Anderson, and Karen Voight. I don't care for complex steps but i do like moderate and basic type steps. Hope this helps

I am a stepper. I swear by it, it is the only thing helping me to lose weight. I have tried many different DVD's, but the one's I like the best are by Cathe Friedrich. She has many different levels of exercise, the music is pretty good and it is easy to follow, but keeps you interested.

Some workouts I like

I workout at home too. I stumbled onto a site that has some awesome step workouts. You get two per DVD and I like them more than almost any other step DVD I own. It was last year, but the site was

Walking is good

If you have a treadmill the beginner classes at are good. I use them when it is too cold in the winter to actually go outside.

Step Aerobic DVD (very good)

I found a VERY GOOD Step Aeribic DVD. It's by Izette Barnett. You can find it at It's around $20 but it's well worth the money. Ihave been using it for months now. If you like good music and good steps to keep you motivated, definitely try this one. You can look him up on youtube as well. Just enter Izette Barnett Step Aerobics. You will see him in competition, but you can view some of the actual DVD I am speaking about as well. I hope this helps.

Since buying the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars last year for $770 million Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , auto-parts billionaire Shahid Khan has been trying to revive one of the NFL's worst teams. He's brought in new coaches and players. He's upgraded team facilities and added fan amenities
  • Philadelphia Eagles Jersey
  • . And this fall, he's sending the Jags onto the field with a dramatic new look: a menacing logo, a striking two-tone helmet, and a completely redesigned jersey. "It's got to look cool," Khan says of the attire. "We want to signify this is a new direction, a fresh start. We need more fans."

    Overhauling uniforms as a way to amp up enthusiasm and merchandise sales is an increasingly popular strategy in the pro-sports world. In recent years, teams such as the NBA's Brooklyn Nets
  • San Diego Chargers Jersey
  • , MLB's Toronto Blue Jays, and the NFL's Seattle Seahawks have generated buzz with eye-catching reboots, and the pace of such face-lifts only seems to be increasing. "Redesigns have always been a part of sports
  • San Francisco 49ers Jersey
  • , but things are different now," says Paul Lukas, creator of Uni Watch, a popular blog that covers "athletics aesthetics." For one thing, there's more at stake: Annual merchandise revenue for the NFL, MLB, and NBA is at record levels, with the NFL alone raking in an estimated $9.5 billion in total revenue
  • St. Louis Rams Jersey
  • . And teams must now work harder than ever to attract fans' endlessly divided attention.

    For the Jaguars' redesign, Khan worked with Nike, which last year began making NFL uniforms as part of a reported $1.1 billion deal that lasts through 2016
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey
  • . (The company is also behind the less-bold 2013 uniform tweaks for the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.) The goal was to create something flashy and different, but not too radical for either the team's supporters or the NFL, which has to approve all uniform-design changes (the league designs logos itself). "We err on the side of evolution, as opposed to revolution, which is where we have a healthy debate going with
  • Tennessee Titans Jersey
  • ," says Leo Kane, the NFL's senior vice president of consumer products. "We've encouraged them to push us."

    The helmet's unique design fades from matte black in front to shiny gold in the rear.
    Nike's Jags jersey is made out of
  • Washington Redskins Jersey
  • high-tech stretch material that hugs the torso for a sleek look but still offers the necessary range of motion.
    An armed-forces-style badge is a nod to Jacksonville's sizable military community.
    The belt adds hidden padding
  • 2015 Super Bowl XLIX
  • , which could help players avoid hip pointers, a common injury.
    When a player interlaces his hands just the right way, the gloves create a single image, the team logo.
    After the Jaguars requested a new look in March 2012
  • 2015New Style Noble Fashion
  • , the NFL's marketing group and team officials got to work on a creative brief that would guide the process. "We explored, What is the essence of the brand?" says Kane. "What is the personality? What do fans think?" One of the new uniform's key elements is a military-style badge that's attached to the front of the new jersey—a nod to the 12% of Jacksonville's population with ties to the armed forces
  • 2015 Pro Bowl
  • . The helmet, a groundbreaking design with a matte-black finish in front that fades into shiny gold in back, is meant to evoke the hunting style of a big cat, which stalks its prey in the shadows before pouncing. And the new team logo features a less-goofy jaguar head than the original, introduced in 1995. "We heard 'The cat has an overbite' or 'It looks like a cartoon,'" says the Jags' Khan. "You listen. That is vital. Where is the threshold where NFL you hit some nerves and offend fans? You want to respect the history, even though it may be short."

    Has it really been three years since the
  • Wholesale Jerseys last World Baseball Classic? As we approach the second-ever World Baseball Classic odds, it is never too soon to start examining the power players. Keep in mind that after this WBC
  • NFL Shop , they will only come once every four nfl nike jerseys Here's the four major players in the upcoming 2009 WBC:

    United States +150 In baseball,cheap stitched nfl jerseys being an unknown team helps you because you become harder to scout and harder to prepare for
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • . Take a chance with the Cubans again. They take this tournament very seriously. As far as World Baseball Classics lines go, stitched nfl jerseyslook for the U.S. team to be a real underdog heading into the 2009 tournament
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • ?they might be worth a bet to win it all if the price is right.

    The Yankees underachieved in the 2006 World Baseball Classic and you can be assured that they will make some concerted effort to right the ship
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • . They boasted a fairly talented roster but neglected starting pitching, which was eventually the difference.

    Japan +800

    This is a pretty penny for a team that won the entire tournament in 2006. They are worth a flier here because keep in mind
  • Buffalo Bills
  • , for the most part, cheap nfl jerseysthe Japanese team is an unknown commodity. A lot of people are making assumptions and although the public perceives they are more flukey,cheap nfl jerseys than good, stitched nfl jerseysthe reality is that this is a stellar team. We're starting to get a taste with Ichiro
  • Carolina Panthers
  • , Daisuke Matsuzaka and Akinori Otsuka, but they are more than capable of winning it all again. Definitely a team to consider when you bet on the World Baseball Classic.

    Cuba +1000

    Speaking of great unknowns, it doesn't get much more mysterious than the Cuban team
  • CFL Jersey
  • . This team lost in the finals to Japan in 2006,cheap stitched nfl jerseys disappointing sportsbook diehards everywhere. The Cubans have a squad full of potential MLB All-Stars.stitched nfl jerseys cheap Last time around, the team was worried that a number of them might defect
  • Cleveland Browns
  • ,stitched nfl jerseys even though that that never turned out to be the case.

    Dominican Republic +175

    Go ahead, argue with a team that has Albert Pujols
  • Chicago Bears
  • , Alfonso Soriano, Jose Reyes and David Ortiz.stitched nfl jerseys cheap The sportsbooks certainly won't be debating it
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • .cheap stitched nfl jerseys Interestingly enough, stitched nfl jerseys cheapthis team doesn't have as much starting pitching as you might think and if the US team brings some good starters, they should be able to beat this team. Bartolo Colon and Francisco Liriano led this starting rotation in 2006. They have some work to do but they can clearly outhit anyone.
