Only 12.95 shipped on dvd! I'm in! (I'm really considering this....I do love Christmas stuff...)
Is Santa a background exerciser?
I agree! You really would think this should not be an enabling thread....
I want it too...

I guess mine would be La Toya Jackson's Step Up Workout.

Woo!

I guess my most embarrassing one is the original Buns of Steel, which I bought on DVD and still haven't tried.
I think I have a few old Denise Austin VHS tapes as well, with her working out in a bikini. But I actually prefer these to her newer videos.

What is up with that? I can't believe more instructors don't make holiday workouts. I would love some Halloween or Christmas workouts. Heck, I would take an Easter bunny workout at this point LOL I've sent the holiday suggestion to Leslie (come on, how hard is it to decorate her bland set and add a few holiday tunes) but no luck. Seriously, it would be a money maker and you would think it would be a fun project for the instructor. Maybe Amy Bento would be up for the suggestion. She seems open to a little fun.

Maybe but imo nothing dates, or limits, a workout faster than a holiday-themed one. And it could definitely run the risk of being too 'cutesy' or 'precious'.
I, for one, would never buy one but then I have no problem doing regular workouts around the holidays.

The Situation workout. I have a friend who watched the Jersey Shore.. she was a lawyer and a history buff like me... so i thought it was so funny tthat she watched that kind of show.. i guess i should not judge as i never saw the show... but i read and heard enogh about it to know that is is pure crap (imo). SO.. she bought the workout for me as a joke. Did it try it.. yes i did.. twice. Not a bad workout at all... cheesey.. but good weight work with some cardio intervals. Did i keep it.. yup.. still have and may pop it in one day again. The Situation guy is kind-of funny and seems like a nice guy.. just not my type in any way what so ever....
