Gilad Workouts Great for Beginners on DVD
When it comes to what a beginner, or someone who hasn't worked out for quite a while, needs in a workout DVD, the first series that comes to mind is from the health and fitness star, Gilad Janklowicz. Gilad is the star of the long running health and fitness show, Bodies in Motion which started in 1983 and ran to 1996 on ESPN and from 1996 to 2002 on Fox Sports. Gilad was a record holding decathlon athlete in Israel and a fitness officer in the military, as well as an Olympic hopeful in 1980. The man knows his fitness, and has produced a ton of health and fitness DVDs.
You wouldn't skip a week or two and just plop in a Insanity workout, especially if you are a little older. Those kinds of workouts take a bit of building up to, unless you do a lot of hitting the pause button to catch your breath. Don't get me wrong, again, I love Insanity, but every workout has it's place, and some people might avoid working out because they are afraid of getting injured and don't really want the experience, necessarily, of gasping for breath. That being the case, there is nothing wrong with doing Gilad workouts on a regular basis to satisfy your cardiovascular needs. Just as Gilad says during a workout, "Never sit down, never sit", and "Aerobics is good for you". Just doing any kind of healthy aerobic activity on a regular basis is going to do wonders for your health and help you live longer. To accomplish the goal of living longer and staying healthy, you don't always have to workout like Rocky or Rambo. I like to, but that's my personal preference. I hate to see people avoid working out because they have a sort of fear or intimidation of exercise. The only thing to fear is not exercising, but the lack of exercise and what a sedentary lifestyle does to our bodies over time.
Another point, Gilad's workouts are easy to follow as well. That's probably the biggest thing I like about Gilad workouts. I don't know how many times I've done new workouts with my wife, and found that some of her workouts are very complex at first. With Gilad you can pretty much jump right into it without stepping all over yourself. Great for clumsy guys like me.
Again, Gilad really knows his stuff when it comes to building a healthy body. You can't go wrong with any of the Gilad workout series on DVD. Working out with Gilad will improve your flexibility, muscle tone, and cardio without nearly as much risk for injury as some of the other popular workout series.
Also, if you are new to health and fitness in general, but you really want to look like you workout, you want to have abs of steel and so forth, then check out my Action Hero Abs book. It's for people who want serious information, but perhaps given in a light hearted way at times. Yes, some of it is a little silly for laughs, but the facts inside will help you achieve long term health and fitness goals that will last and last. Order it today at Amazon. Please check out my other books as well.

His role model was body builder and Hercules star Steve Reeves. He's won IFBB Mr. America, IFBB Mr. Universe, came second and third in the Mr. Olympia competition, and second in the Masters Olympia. His favorite superheroes as a child were Spider-man and the Hulk of course. Lou Ferrigno Weightlifting Tips
