Exercising to an aerobics video can be a great way to work out in the privacy of your own home, and on your own schedule. There are thousands of options available, and choosing the best one can seem daunting. There are a few ways to narrow down your choices, however, and choose an aerobics video that will work well for you.

First, consider the type of aerobics you want to try. Frequently, an aerobics video will make use of equipment such as a step, a jump rope, or a small set of hand weights. If you don't want to purchase these items, you may want to try a more basic video, or even one that combines dance and aerobics, which are quite popular. Some people enjoy dance aerobics more than simple aerobics exercises, because it can be more fun.

Difficulty levels may vary in different aerobics videos as well. If you are just starting out, it may be a good idea to purchase an aerobics video with a fairly low difficulty level, and then choose another one as you get stronger. Some videos contain a number of different workout routines within one video; simply choose the level of difficulty at which you want to exercise, and then you will only need to switch to the next routine and not purchase a new video when you get stronger.

Before purchasing an aerobics video, it might be a good idea to rent a few in order to test them and learn which one is your favorite. The best aerobics exercise video for you will be one that holds your interest, and will continue to do so, even if you watch the video a few times a week. It should challenge you so that your heart rate increases and you start to sweat, but not to the extent that you have difficulty breathing or completing the video.

In addition, when choosing an aerobics video, it is a good idea to watch it all the way through one time before attempting the moves. Be sure the instructions provided are clear, and that the instructor teaches at a good pace. Make sure that none of the moves aggravate any injuries; for instance, if you have trouble with your knees, you will want to avoid an aerobics video that contains exercises such as lunges or squats. If you cannot find an appropriate video to purchase, try searching for free ones online; there are many available.
