Can anyone recommend any exercise videos or DVDs for my wife who will be wanting to get back in to shape after childbirth. she's tried a few in the past but got bored with them quickly.

Dont know any specifics, but yoga/pilates type stuff might be appropriate if shs just had a baby

i think the nell mcandrew one 'peak energy' is great for those days when its just to horrible to run. its pretty intense though but does really give you a feeling of haveing worked out. some of the others are a bit too easy. also good are the tae bo series, they go from beginners to advanced and arn't like most aerobics sessions. personally i think that yoga nd pilates are great exercise but better done with an instructor at first so you know you are getting it right.
merry christmas to ya, one and all!

I've seen the Cindy Crawford vid all the way through. Dunno about the benefits - but its great to watch from the sofa ! ;-)

Steve - I'd see if she can get to a local class - that way she gets out of the house, and it's easier to be motivated in a group.

Also - you can't really exercise straightaway after the baby. The instructors will know more though.

Yep I'll second the Cidy Crawford one. Went round to a mates house with beer to watch it when it first came out

Don't know if it is of any use but I'm eyeing up the New York City Ballet Workout DVDs. I haven't tried them (obviously) but they come highly recommended.

Elle McPeharson's The body workout is a good one.
