If you're looking to get fit from home, there is nothing quite like an ol' fashioned workout DVD.

They are always more challenging then you'd think (in a good way, we promise) and they're guaranteed to leave you feeling like you've worked hard.

Plus, your sweaty, I-just-completed-20-lunges face is safe from prying eyes. Oh, apart from your partner, who, believe us, is used to it by now.

Whether you prefer HIIT routines or weight training, pick a workout DVD that resonates with you and get cracking.

Some routines take just 10 minutes of your day, which is perfect for anyone whose to-do list seems to be NEVER ENDING.

This works to wake up your accessory muscles, pull in your larger muscles and thus, create a lean body shape. A promising review: "This is hard, but it works - and quite quickly too. I've done pilates in the past and this is similar, but it uses a lot of repetitions until things really start to burn. I can see a difference - especially in my arms. Don't expect this to be fun - it's not, but I genuinely think that it's worth putting the effort in."

The benefits of workout DVDS:

You'll feel more motivated: if you have bought something tangible, you're more likely to stick to the routine you have planned for yourself.

You can do adjust it to your level: unlike a class, you can run a grab a glass of water and stop for a few minutes. It's the little things.

Practise makes perfect: the more you do a routine, the easier it'll become. You'll also notice yourself getting fitter which is the best kind of motivation.
