Getting to the gym can be hard, especially when you’ve got little kids at home!  Instead of hitting your basement treadmill, spice things up with a fitness DVD!  It’s like having a live fitness class, or even a personal trainer, right in your living room.  If you prefer to workout at home instead of the gym, there are a lot of great new options for you to choose from!
