Best Home Workout Programs

It's little wonder so many people resolve each year to lose weight, eat better, get stronger and treat their bodies better. When you're healthy, you feel better, look better, and are all around more happy.

But maintaining a good physique isn't necessarily easy, especially as we get older. There are a lucky few who are able to stay fit simply by living their daily lives. The rest of us, however, have to put forth an effort.

Too often, this is something we don't do until there is a problem. Maybe you're looking in the mirror and you don't like what you see. Maybe you are participating in an loved activity and realizing you have lost a step and can't keep up. And maybe it has come to the point where a poor physique is actually affecting your health and quality of life.

Regardless of their motivation, come January 1st people flock to their local gyms in hopes of making this year a better one. But this crowd quickly dissipates as the year progresses and it doesn't seem to be because people are reaching their goals and living happily ever after. Instead, it appears that people are getting discouraged and giving up. And it's not just the people in gyms who spent the first few months of the year aimlessly trying out the various machines at the gym and not seeing results. Millions more have treadmills, exercise bikes, dumbbells, and other home gym equipment purchased with the best of intentions that often times ends up being a high priced clothes hanger.

Why is this? Why do so many people fail at achieving their new year's resolution to get in shape?

Part of it may be that working out is just that, work - and work is hard. But that doesn't appear to be a complete explanation. Most people will work extremely hard if they believe it is worth it. And what reward is better than a trim and strong physique? Instead, a better explanation may be that people get discouraged by a lack of results. Granted, it takes time to make a difference in your body, but if you don't know what you are doing when you work out, results may come at a snail's pace if at all.

In order to get the best results in the shortest amount of time, you need to work out properly. For some, this means signing up for sessions with a personal trainer, but at $50+ an hour, this can be prohibitively expensive. More and more often, people are avoiding the gym altogether turning to home workout programs.

Unlike the aerobics videos on the past, today's home workout programs are more complete fitness solutions. Many feature multiple routines, diet plans, online interactivity and more. There are no magic weight loss potion and you will have to work, but know that if you select a quality workout routine and put forth the effort, you will see results, and you will see them quickly.

To help you get started, here is a list of the top home workout programs.

More Asylum, only better. Roll on Volume 3

42 P90X3

After completing P90x a couple times I decided to try this out. I'm now finishing my third round, results aren't quite the same as P90x but great none the less. If you don't have the time for P90x this is a great program, should easily be top 10 for efficiency.

Great Program and its only 30 minutes, great variety and Tony does great cueing you in to next move. Did program twice and may do again after taking a break. Also great to mix and match with other programs. Should be in top 10!

No idea why this is ranked so low. It is an amazing program for any level. If you're new to working out the modifications make it accessible. If you're a seasoned vet, GO FOR IT and it will rock your world!

Love love love this program! Started this last year to just start getting healthy! Got so healthy in 90 days that my hormones balanced out and I was able get pregnant after 3 yrs of trying! Now that my baby girl is here I've restarted this program and I am sooo thankful for the quick 30 minute workouts having a 4 yr old and now a 3 month old! Thank you Tony Horton!

44 Power 90
45 Piyo

Such a great program. I have so many issues (collapsed arches which leads to balance & core problems) but at the end I had developed the core strength to be able to do a legit tree pose for yoga. Sweat was definitely my favorite of the workouts.

I love Piyo because it's tough, but no equipment is required. I completed 60 days of the program and could not believe the strength I acquired during that time.

This workout was very good. It starts you out slow the first couple of weeks then adds intensity. Shaylene was funny, motivating and intense. I am finished with the last month of the program and I have a toned bottom. very strong plank and my abs look great. Thanks Shaylene I cannot wait till you come out with new videos

I've watched the T.V. add and read the reviews. I'm 58 and have bad hips and lower back but I'm ready to start this program. I love the low impact workouts and hopefully have finally found an exercise program I can do.

46 Jillian Michaels Body Revolution

Jillian Michaels is awesome! Oh, yeah! Go super-tough ladies!

It's great! Overall fitness level improvement.

Excellent and best tablet/phone workout
