03 December 2013 by


1. Dirty Dancing: The Official Dance Workout, £5.31

Does Dirty Dancing top your list of fave flicks? If so, then this is definitely the [a target="_blank" href="">workout[/a] for you. Not only does this workout include original music from the film but you’ll be getting fit (and working up a sweat) to Johnny’s Mambo. Enough said.

2. Strictly Come Dancing: Strictly Fit, Dance Fit, £5.75

If, like us, a Saturday evening watching Strictly renders you super-jealous of all those amazingly toned bodies then hurry up and get involved with this[a target="_blank" href=""> DVD[/a]. Three of the show’s favourite pro dancers (Ola, Natalie and Artem) will show you, step-by-step, a variety of pretty cool dance routines. Perfect for those who are too shy for a Zumba class but still looking for a hardcore (and fun) workout.

3. Ministry Of Sound Pump It Up: The Ultimate Dance Workout, £7.76

A certain member of team Grazia beauty has confessed to a serious obsession with this workout DVD. In fact, this [a target="_blank" href="">rather awesome DVD[/a] is shot on the same location as the video for Eric Prydz’s ‘Call on Me’- cue scantily-clad 80s-esque aerobic girls? You get the idea…

4. Insanity: The Ultimate Cardio Workout And Fitness DVD Programme, £125

If you’re pretty serious about getting fit for 2014 then this is the one for you. It might not be cheap, but you certainly get your money’s worth- this kit promises serious results in 60 days and comes with everything you need to help you along the way (workout calendar, nutrition manual, etc.) Not for the faint-hearted- this is called [a target="_blank" href="">Insanity[/a] for a reason but guaranteed to beat any sign of the winter blues.

5. Zumba Exhilarate Body Shaping Kit, £59.99

6. Tracy Anderson Method, £6.99

Straight from Gwyneth and Shakira’s personal trainer comes this incredible workout which we love for a number of reasons- not only are the moves super-easy to follow but no specialist equipment is required, so it’s pretty fool proof. A real [a target="_blank" href="">Grazia fave[/a].
