June’s Top Workout DVD: Amy Dixon’s Breathless Body

Best for: Moderate to advanced exercisers looking for a challenge; those who are ready to drip sweat.

Why it’s a star: Equinox group fitness manager Amy Dixon is not messing around with this workout! After a brief warm-up, she picks up the pace with eight different Tabata intervals (20 seconds hard, 10 seconds resting; repeat eight times for one interval). The rest time sounds ample, but don’t be tricked: You’ll need every second! Each exercise is offered at three different intensity levels, so you can choose the one that best fits your current abilities. If you pick the most challenging one you can complete with good form, you will be breathless!

Where to get it: amydixonfitness.com, $19.99

Now tell us: Does a trainer (virtual or in real life) help you push yourself harder during a workout?

    I am blessed to train with Amy Dixon in her SUPERFIT BOD classes at Equinox, but due to my schedule being busier, I cannot always make it to the times she teaches. I am stoked that I just purchased her 2 new videos because, the awesome workouts you get from these DVDs that Amy creates is exactly what I would get in a live group exercise class, and the best part is I can do these invigorating workouts anytime I want. Buy any one of Amy Dixon’s workout DVDs, they are a great investment for your heart’s health! Amy makes fitness fun and fierce. Get ready to get sweaty.

    A trainer absolutely helps me push harder. I’ve had to let go my gym membership and while I used the facilities for weight lifting, I especially loved the classes. So my new thing has been to get DVDs and they’ve helped put me on the path to being more fit than ever.
