    If you have a mat or something like it, maybe a challenging yoga workout? I used to use an old scarf as a "strap" and a Jazzercise mat as my yoga mat.

    Or maybe a ballet-style dvd? Someone here once recommended a tough one for me. Can't remember what it was called, though --- sorry!

    You don't need any equipment for Callanetics except for something about waist high to hold on to. The back off a chair will work. It's a great workout for toning up and shaving off inches.

    p-90X I believe there is no equipment needed in some (maybe all)

    You can do it without weights but they expect you to have equipment for resistance. Some use bands, weights, or a pull up bar.

    If you have and iPod or iPhone, I recommend the Nike Training app. It's free and highly effective. I would rather have this than p90x.

    There are always the staple workouts that are timeless. Push ups, lunges, squats, dips are all excellent basics. There are also countless variations of these.

    This workout looks interesting, but it looks like one would get a pancake ass from it from so many of the after shots I see online. If I could do it and keep the booty I have, it looks great.

    One of the benefits of barrre workouts such as Callanetics is supposed to be how it lifts and shapes your booty. However, it hasn't changed mine. BUT I just discovered recently from reading various forum discussions that I wasn't incorporating all of the concepts. The workout is much tougher since I started squeezing my sit bones together (kind of like holding in numbers 1 and 2 at the same time from what I read). I have hopes for this technique. I try to do this with every exrercise while I do my barre workouts.

    If people want to read about techniques checkout the forum on lowcarbfriends.com, the exercise board. There is always a monthly checkin and also a thread with before and after pictures. Sandra Hannah who is the instructor on the Callanetics Evolution DVD posts quite often in the monthly checkins. She also has a FB page. I haven't seen it as I don't do FB.

    Thanks for the info and the links. I like the anatomical concept of it working some of the smaller internal muscles that my dumbbells and whatnot aren't getting. I just don't want a flat butt, no matter how high, as a result, lol. I'd miss my booty if it totally left me :).

    I do Zumba. Not only does not require any machines but it's fun. You are just dancing and having fun but you definitely feel the burn.

    I guess I don't see what you are talking about. I have never heard anyone say they lost their booty with this. In "Look 10 Years Younger in 10 Hours" Callan claims that her "behind" exercises make your tush "tight, round, like a little peach". Like I said, so far no such luck for me, but I'm hoping using the correct technique will help. Not one female in my family has a shapely butt though so I'm not sure how much I can change it.

    Does anyone know if Callanetics can be done with crappy knees? I have a hard time with exercises that include a lot of bending at the knee...

    Check out the link I provided for Low Carb Friends and read some of the longer Callanetics threads. Lots of people with a lot more knowledge than me have probably answered that. Also Sandra Hannah who is on the trainer on the Evolution DVD will answer direct questions. She pops in the monthly challenge threads every two or three days. She also has a FB page and on one of those threads a link is provided.

    Thought of that but if you live in an apartment the noise you will make will stir up lot's of neighbors :( living underneath so i prefer something that won't have heavy jumping or stuff that make noise.

    I am not familiar with this program so I can't answer your question.

    However, most programs that can be done without equipment (such as the Nike Training app) place a heavy emphasis on squats and lunges. So based on my experience, I would say probably not. It may be helpful to search for upper body workouts? A lot of Pilates moves are knee-friendly as well.

    It's chaptered so you don't have to do everything every time. Each chapter is probably 12 or 15 minutes.

    I'm doing the Brazil Butt Lift, by Beachbody, and it is awesome! They provide a resistance band, and you can add handweights and ankle weights...but you can also get by without them if necessary. It's made a big difference in my backside in short order. I wouldn't recommend it if you have bad knees, though, because you will have to do some squats and lunges.

    insanity but the dvd's themselves are pricey

    jillian michaels dvd's can be done without equipment but one set of dumbbells are suggested. it's worth it. they are GOOD and challenging and only $9-$12 at target!
