Do a search for “cynthia kereluk cardio”, that’s the stuff I did with my mom growing up.

Another thing you can consider is taking out fitness DVDs from your local library. If you’re a jerk you can rip them with handbrake… but you didn’t hear that last part from me 😉

@Bubu82:  Have a look at Bodyrock.tv’s youtube channel or go to their website bodyrock.tv. All the workouts are free and they are really good.  The newer ones sometimes use equipment but a lot of the older ones don’t use any equipment at all.  Also you can just do most of the exercises without the weight or whatever they are using or just modify the move slightly (I don’t have any equipment but I still get a good workout) 

Also, a former bodyrock.tv host, Zuzana, now has her own youtube channel where she posts free workouts on a weekly basis.  I believe most of these are just body weight workouts, no/minimal equipment required.

I realise these are not Zumba/cardio videos, but I highly reccommend HIIT and strength training workouts for improving fitness really quickly!
Good luck!

@Bubu82:  I did my first bodyrock in December 2010.  I used to workout regularly before, cardio, yoga (I am a certified yoga instructor) and a bit of light weights, but I wasn’t very fit in terms of my cardiovascular health or surprisingly, upperbody strength.  For example, I couldnt run the 1km from my house to my gym without feeling like my chest was going to explode.  After about 3 months of HIIT, I could run there and back no problem and talk to my husband the entire way even tho I hadn’t done anything other than bodyrock style workouts.  Also, when I started I could only do about 3 real pushups.  After about 6 months I could do 15 in a row, and over 100 in an entire workout (in sets of 10, not all at once!). 

No, I don’t do any other workouts.  Just HIIT, anywhere from 1-4 times a week, where I do about 10 minutes warm up/stretch, 15-20 min HIIT, 10 minutes cool down/stretch. Thats about 2-3 hours total per week… I love yoga but 1.5hour/day is just too much time, esp when you have to run as well for cardio.

I understand about the workouts being hard and hard to follow but just spend a few minutes watching the videos and making notes before you start.  Also, do the beginner modifications at first so you can make improvements, and not hurt yourself!  I suggest keeping track of your reps or time and then you will be really motivated when you see improvements in a few weeks!
