While all of these five fitness programs are great, you might want to take into consideration combining them with other workouts. There are a lot of options available and if you feel that the risk of watching a movie instead of a fitness program is too high, we recommend you the old-fashioned DVDs. Some of these fitness programs also come with a nutrition plan, which would be a complete solution for changing your lifestyle.
