I’d look into fitnessblender. It’s a couple that does mostly strength training/hiit, but they have workouts for every skill level. I really enjoy their workouts and appreciate that there are some for days/seasons when I’m not in shape or low-energy as well as for when I’m ready for an intense workout. They work best with some adjustable hand weights, but they have tons that are bodyweight only.

Jillian Michaels, 21 Day fix, and T25 for paid programs. Fitnessblender on YouTube for free videos.

I just started beach body on demand. I AM NOT A COACH, or at all affiliated. I don’t like when people come on these posts that have an agenda!
That being said, I’ve actually really enjoyed the workouts. I started with the 21 day fix workouts, moved into “a little obsessed” which is the 30 minute version of the 80 day obsession workouts, and now I just started 80 day obsession.
Not really sure how I feel about 80 day obsession yet, but they have like 700+ workouts so if you don’t like Autumn’s workouts, they have insanity/p90x and a bunch of others with different trainers.
I got the 2 week trial but i’ll probably buy the year package.

There are tons of workout videos on youtube which is great as I get bored of them very easily. I usually do blogilates, fitnessblender and xhit (if that’s what it’s called lol). Sometimes yoga. The only piece of equipment I actually use at home is a foam workout mat.

+1 on the rowing machine! It’s good cardio and also a really good core/leg workout. Sometimes I will alternate a few minutes of rowing with strength training moves (pilates or stuff with dumbells or a medicine ball) in between each rep. Concept2 has a “workout of the day” on their website too.

I like 30 day shred, but I hate Jillian Michaels so I do it on mute. I don’t need alternating inspirational words and chastisement. Enough already, ugh. Other people really dig her though.
Blogitates can also be fun, and 21 day fix. 🙂 I’m basically only in if it requires a yoga mat and/or hand weights.

Sweat or bbg is so repetitive. Don’t recommend it.
Download the Nike training app. It’s free and nothing compares

I love Blogilates.
Here’s one that hasn’t been mentioned: Crush! They have a HIIT program called Go and another at home program called Crush At Home. I’ve done both and they’re great.

Fitnessblender, Popsugar Fitness and Tone It Up.

I also recommend the SWEAT app! It requires little to no equipment. I do have an elliptical so I can do cardio indoors as a good part of the year its too cold and dark outside where I reside.
I also have some light dumbbells, a kettle ball, exercise ball and jump rope.
Totally not necessary but I’ve found it conducive to reserving a space at home for working out. We turned a small guest bedroom into my “wellness room” by putting down foam flooring (bought from Amazon) and full length mirrors across one wall from (IKEA). I also have an old Bluetooth speaker in there so I can put on music and a small erasable board to jot down routines or to track progress. It was relatively inexpensive to put together.
I should add I am not an athlete by any means and currently being pregnant have completely fallen off the wagon but I hope to resume some exercising soon and really hope to ulitize my wellness room postpartum.
ETA: Just realized you are looking for a regime to share with your husband. I agree with PP that the SWEAT app is more geared towards women but I do believe a man would benefit from it and if anything he can select a plan that uses heavier weight.
For your husband he may want to invest in something like the bowflex adjustable dumbbells which are a space saver and convenient. A weight bench may be useful too.

lulubelle2017 : Yes! Another 80DO bee here. I love Beachbody programs, and I will repeat 80Day Obsession once we finish. I absolutely love this program – and in two months i’ve lost 15 pounds and lots of inches. This is even including a week trip to Italy, and I didn’t gain any of the weight back. It’s not a quick fix, but it works!
Beachbody has so many programs to choose from, so it’s not boring or repetitive – you can pick a program and do that for the month, then do another program. Or switch it up depending on what workout you feel like doing that day. They have many different programs with different fitness level, time requirements, etc., so you can always fit it in your day with a limited amount of space needed. Love it!

There are so many good workouts on youtube. I use popsugarfitness on there for my at home workouts and it usually kicks my butt.

I lost over 40 lbs in about 5 months with DDP Yoga. It’s so easy and fun that I was shocked how fast the weight fell off! It’s especially good if you have any weak points (mine are my knees) as it’s a mix of yoga and sports therapies, so you lose weight and strenghen any old injuries or areas affected by medical conditions.

I love Jillian Michaels videos!
30 Day Shred is good one to start with. I also love Ripped in 30 😀 Some people love her, some people hate her, but I personally find her awesome. She can be a bit of a bitch, but I dunno, it entertains me! I’m also trying out her fitness app now (but I only started with it yesterday so I can’t say too much about it just yet).
I got some great results with the 30 Day Shred, followed by Ripped in 30. They’re high intensity, but honestly I’ve never felt better in my life than when I stuck to those videos!

I have done the full P90x in the past and it gave me a LOTTT of change! Then right after I finished that, I did the JM 30 day shred for maintenance. It seemed like a kiddie work out after having completed the P90x.
Later on after having a baby, I was not able to devote the 1 hour or MORE to P90x workouts so I started P90x3. And I was surprised that this also helped me tone and strengthen much like it’s older sibling. It wasn’t as much strengthening and toning but still quite considerable!
Right now my son is almost 4 and I have restarted the P90x. I really like the wholesome approach Tony has in this workout. There is a bit of everything and in my line of physically demanding work at this time, I need all that bit of everything that he has to offer. I can do it all at home as I have a set of dumbbells and a pull up bar.
