Pilates!  It’s a great workout for the core and the butt!  If you can afford some reformer sessions, I highly recommend them!

Ooo I can’t wait to see the responses to this one! I need some good ab stuff because nothing seems to work. As for the butt, I ride a recumbent bike at the gym three days a week for about 45 minutes, and my thighs and butt shaped up super fast.

I was a trainer for many years,the very first thing is diet,cut out the fat and the muscles you  already have will pop out.I agree with pilates and squats are great if your in a hurry to get firm.tons of water and no sodas or alchol,for the few weeks before your wedding,you will be shocked on how your body will get ripped if you cleans for a few weeks.then party like crazy on your  honeymoon!!!!!

Do you have Comcast?  Check out ondemand.  They have all sorts of excersize videos on there.  Maybe you will find something that works for you.

Squats and lunges for your legs, butt and core! And walking, jogging and running in intervals! Good luck! What’s your arm workout?

I really liked this workout when I was getting ready for the wedding.  You can customize the workouts based on what body area you want to work/what area your dress shows off: http://www.amazon.com/Womens-Health-Wedding-Marie-Forleo/dp/B000HEWEGW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1248200834&sr=1-1

I also really like The Firm workouts.  I think they do show great results, and I definitely think their "Firm Box" has done a lot for my butt/legs. You do need a step, either theirs or something of similar height to get the workout done.  They have several versions, this is the one I have: 


Oh and spinning!  I think that spinning has totally firmed up my butt and thighs!

I think The Firm workouts using the box are great for shaping up your butt and legs. My favorite one is Maximum Body Sculpting (it’s kind of dated but it’s a good workout).

@Jessie516: Which Firm workouts do you like best? (I need a couple of new workout DVDs!)

Turbo Jam (the complete workout) has great videos (some short as 20 mins others up to an hour) with a special abs video that works amazingly well! and it is fun and dance-y 🙂

I also like pilates for overall toning!

Lunges and squats and the one where you are on all fours and bend your leg and lift it.
