Anyone have a favorite DVD workout set?

I usually donít love or hate the sets in my workouts, although I have an intense dislike for the stark white sets where everything looks washed out and you canít tell where the floor ends and the walls begin. But one set I really, really like is the set in Kathy Smithís March to Fitness. I love the deep green carpet and the big windows with the trees and bushes swaying in the wind. I donít think thereís another set I like as much.

Eoin Finn's Blissology DVD set has the best set! They filmed everything in Bali and the music is also amazing. Love it...

Oh, yes, Blissology is beautiful! Each practice has a different Bali setting.
My favorite sets are generally outdoors. Rodney Yee and Rainbeau Mars have lovely Hawaiian settings.

I like that set as well. I like the workout too! Generally the sets don’t make much of an impression on me. I even don’t mind the stark white ones. My favorites, though, are those filmed outside with the sun shining (and it makes a difference if the sun isn’t shining). If the workout is filmed inside, then I like the ones with windows so you can see the outside or even ones with fake outdoor settings.

Yes, that Kathy Smith March set is a gorgeous space which I visit once in a while.

I mostly love the outdoor settings, Rainbeau Mars, Gilad, Jessica Smith, Ellen and indoors with out door views which are real or well done fake.

There are a few indoors sets like XTF personal trainer which feel like a gym with just the right amount of equipment in the background.

I know I dislike any total white, jammed in a corner, or with tiny platforms where Iím constantly waiting for the instructor to fall off.

I like the loft-style sets with brick walls.

You'd enjoy a lot of the workouts produced by New Shoot Pictures then.

I LOVE Jessica, so Iím not trying to be mean but she has one set (at her momís maybe?) where thereís a table on the side of the screen and thereís a huge floral arrangement on top of the table. Every time I do one of her workouts with that set, I think someone needs to move that arrangement - itís too big to be on top of that table! 😁
