3 Fun Workouts for Women

Must See Training Videos

Now that the weather is warm, people are inspired to take their workouts outside. But when the rains come, you will need a fun workout you can do inside. The following will keep you going, add variety and help you achieve solid results.

For the Time-Starved

Hectic schedules are unavoidable. You can always use the excuse that you have too much to do. But try to argue that point against a 10-minute workout.

The 10-Minute Trainer: Tony Horton's Workout for the Busiest People promises that his Super Stacking® technique allows you to work your upper body, lower body, abs and cardio fitness, all in ten minutes. Horton says one ten-minute workout burns as many calories as thirty minutes of jogging. You be the judge. If it doesn't work for you, it will still be better than doing nothing.

Bringing Back the Hula Hoop

Think the hula hoop is a child's toy? The Hoopnotica video series promises fitness results from this old playground staple.

Hoopnotica has a studio in Los Angeles, but it produces videos for those who want to work out at home. If you really love it, they have a training program for hoopers to become certified instructors to teach classes in their areas. Hoopnotica offers a variety of DVD routines, and they even offer videos for kids (so maybe it's still a toy after all). The company also has a TravelHoop so you can hoop it up while you're traveling for work or pleasure. Burning 420+ calories an hour while hooping around could be just the ticket to banishing the boredom of your usual workout.

Focus on the Behind

Let's be serious. All women can get behind an effective butt workout. Leandro Carvalho's Brazil Butt Lift® series offers three levels—base, plus and supreme—and provides metrics to track your progress along with a food plan to ensure you're eating right to support your fit body. The workout moves range from sculpting to cardio dancing to lifting. The plus and supreme versions require ankle weights and resistance bands to work your butt to the max.
