TV as trainer
If you subscribe to digital cable or get On Demand channels, you may have access to FitTV, which features round-the-clock exercise programming. Get toned with world-renowned trainer Gilad Janklowicz on "It's Body Sculpt with Gilad Janklowicz," or switch it up with "In Shape with Sharon Mann."
Even if you don't have cable, use your local library to rent exercise video or CDs and start working out with those.
