Collage Video Lets You ‘Try Before You Buy’ New Fitness DVDs

I bought my first exercise video in 2002. It was a Pilates video and I quickly got to work on the daily routine. After about a week, I couldn’t stand hearing the instructor attempt to be a comedian anymore. I needed her guidance, but not her anecdotes. After my son was born I got a new video. The modern cover was deceiving. The video was out dated and I couldn’t follow the steps because I was too busy laughing at the full body leotards all the big haired women were sporting.

At home exercise can be extremely effective. There are several great videos available, but how do you know if it’s the right one for you? The blurbs on the back covers tend to leave too many questions. The best way to choose is to actually try it out before you buy it- and now you can.

Collage Video coins themselves as being the “exercise video specialists since 1987.” This company started by printing a catalog of exercise video reviews. 25 years later, they’ve moved to a web site but still offer a great service to those looking to get fit. Every video found on their site has been reviewed by an ACE-certified trainer and a “regular person.” After the team has deemed the video effective, they place it on their site by category and give it a rating.

The best appeal of Collage Video is that they offer a sample clip for the interested shopper. This way, the customer can try out the workout, hear the instructor, and get a general feel for the workout.

Yufit’s Gym in the Cloud Brings Your Favorite Fitness Class to You

Sometimes going to the gym seems to be too much of a hassle. You have to get dressed, drive to the gym, sign in, put away your things, and then, depending on how busy the gym is, you might have to wait for your favorite class to start.

In the end, you might leave the gym completely frustrated because you did not get in as good of a workout as you had hoped. Unfortunately, the video workouts that you can buy at a store get boring after you do them too many times and they can also get too expensive if you want to keep your collection fresh. However, you can now take as many gym classes as you want, from home, or anywhere really, with Yufit’s new Gym in the Cloud.

Gym in the Cloud allows users to access workout videos that are streaming in high definition from anywhere in the world. These videos allow users to follow along with gym-quality fitness classes from the comfort of their own homes. The videos are updated weekly, which means you are much less likely to get bored from doing the same workout video week after week. As one of the trainers, Ken Scott, says, “if it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing,” and this program definitely offers variety and fun.

So what type of classes can you expect to find in Yufit’s Gym in the Cloud? The classes range in level from beginner to advanced and include popular classes such as Yoga Flow, Cardio Kickboxing, Core Burn, Balletone, Street Jazz, and Power Body. The classes are either 30 minutes or 60 minutes long, and while these aren’t exactly short workouts, you will still be able to squeeze them into your busy days because you do not have to deal with commuting to and from the gym.
