"For a hot body, push play," advises Shape magazine. While getting fit isn't quite that easy, the magazine test-drove popular exercise DVDs to help readers make the most of at-home sweat sessions.
Editorial staffers reviewed the DVDs and chose the top six, which they deemed "unique, efficient and easy to follow," and with motivating instructors. The standouts, according to Shape:
• "Denise Austin's Shrink Belly Fat"
• "SparkPeople: Total Body Sculpting"
• "Cathe Friedrich's Cross Fire"
• "Exhale Core Fusion 30 Day Sculpt"
• "Addicted to Sweat 4"
• "Fuse Dance Cardio Melt."
The DVDs include elements of plyometrics, barre, weight training, Pilates and dance, and range from slow-paced to high-energy.
Not ready to commit to just one? The magazine's December issue contains a compilation of favorite moves from each DVD -- such as 180-degree jumps and rotating lunge presses -- to create an exercise circuit.
