Time for a change, a little more challenge

I've been using Leslie Sansone tapes for about 2 years and need a change and more of a challenge. I guess I'm intermiate level.  I've tried a few different tapes- The Firm, etc... but they are too much of a jump from Leslie.  So what is the next step?  I need more of a challenge than Leslie (I can easily do her 4 mile walk/jog) but don't want something too advanced.  Any suggestions? I'd like to incorporate more toning with the aerobics now

    You might want to take a look at {Fight Cellulite Fast}7808^. That one has a cardio section and a lower body section, although I have not done the lower body setion. I use it primarily for the cardio. It has 6 intervals of low intensity, moderate, and then high intensity for about a minute. The cardio is aobut 35-40 mins long, just the right amt. I think.  I found it a challenge at first, but it was a natural progression for me from doing Leslie. HTH!

    How about one of the Women's Health videos. They have a lot of good ones that might be good for you!

    I like the Biggest Loser workouts (I find it encouraging to workout with people you look normal) If you want cardio and toning I would go with the original {Biggest Loser Workout}7593^ which has 2-20 minutes cardio (one low intensity and the other high but with modifiers), and 20 minute cardio/toning bootcamp, and a 20 minute toning of upper, lower body and abs.  The other one I would suggest is the {Biggest loser 2}7738^ I believe it has 15 minute low intensity workout (reminds me of kickboxing), then it has 2 10 minute high intensity cardio each designed for men or women (I like the women's better, the men's is too sporty for me) it also has 2 (men or women) 10 minute toning, I like both the focus on different things (the men is more upper body and abs on the floor while the women's is lower body and abs both done standing
    I find that the Biggest Loser workouts grow on you after you do them a couple of times, plus they are easy to modify to fit your fitness level.  You may think the workouts are short but they make me sweat

    How about some of Chris Freytag's Prevention workouts, like {3-2-1 Circuit}7530^, {Personal Training}7604^ or {Shortcuts to Big Weight Loss}7865^? Fairly basic choreography followed by toning moves.  I find Chris more "user friendly" than the Firm.

    Preventions, Women's Health, and Biggest Losers are all great choices that we would very much agree with.  Other titles to look at could be Karen Voight's {Burn & Firm}7070^ and {Basic Training}5546^ with Ada Janklowicz.
