Truly, believe me!

I find that workout tapes/dvd's are excellent in doing two things:

1. They really give me a much more varied workout than I can get on my own.

2. The time flies by because you vary the routine so much.

I use spinervals.com, but there are other tapes that people enjoy also.

Give it a try!
