Cheaper than a gym membership, these workouts will help you get fit for 2013 without leaving your lounge

1. Strictly Come Dancing: Dance School

Three Strictly dancers show you how to strut your stuff. Not strictly an exercise DVD, but will let you do the rumba like a pro.

Takes no prisoners. A varied, high-intensity routine including drills, ju-jitsu moves and yoga. Beginners may need to build up slowly

Perfect for those who can't bear the thought of strenuous exercise after a hard day's work, this lets you choose what areas to work on.

A non-stop workout. Total body resistance control combined with circuits makes this tough, but damn effective.

Being short on time is no excuse with this DVD. The 10 Minute Solutions series is dedicated to squeezing a little exercise into even the busiest of schedules.

6. Zumba Exhilarate Body Shaping Kit

£39.99, amazon

If you don't fancy all that shimmying and shaking in front of a Zumba class, this DVD set is a great way to try the Columbian dance fitness programme at home.

7. Tracy Anderson Method – Dance Cardio Workout II

Well known for celebrity devotees such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian, Tracy Anderson has created a really challenging dance workout here.
