    What about the Focus T25? If you're thinking about getting a workout program, I have to tell you that Focus T25 is amazing. I'm seeing results and it is great. Focus T25 has become the best selling exercise dvd on Amazon and here are the reviews from the people who bought it: - This help me with my choice to buy it. You can't go wrong with good honest reviews.

  • I posted this before that workout program ever existed. So, this article is a bit outdated at this point. I also have T25 and love it.
    T25 is actually MORE expensive on Amazon, and it can be bought cheaper at :-)
    Also to be noted, the list was created by someone else and wouldn't necessarily be my too picks, personally. My list would include, at this point:
    Turbo Fire
    Les Mills Combat
    Les Mills Pump
    Brazil Butt Lift
    All of those also cheaper through above link than on Amazon.
