DVD Recommendations, please!

It was great hearing about how integral your WW leaders have been in your journeys. This Thursday night meeting also seems more cohesive, like a real group, so it will be interesting to see the personalities come out week after week.

So, I'm looking for recommendations for exercise DVDs. I really like riding the bike at the gym, and water aerobics is starting next week (yeah!), but I think I am going to need another option to keep from getting bored. So, to get you started thinking of ideas, here is my wish list:
  1. I need relatively low impact moves. My knees aren't what they used to be. (And I'm sure my neighbors below me would also appreciate low impact!)
  2. I love to dance, so anything dance related would be great! (I know, kinda hard to incorporate with #1) p.s. I don't like Richard Simmons.
  3. I hate floor work, sit ups are the worst!
  4. I'd like something that incorporates weights. That's one thing that is lacking in my exercise regime. I have hand weights right now.
  5. I don't have room for a step. (Back in the day I loved my Reebok Step!)
Many thanks in advance for your suggestions. Any and all are welcome (even ones that don't fit my ridiculously narrow parameters!)

I like the Walk Away the Pounds 3 mile super fat burner DVD. It uses weights, seems easy, but when you're done, you're sweating buckets! Good times!

I had to hunt a while to find it - you'll have to copy and paste - don't know how to link in comments - but good ideas for you here (from JuJu on Skinny Daily)

If you hate sit ups - try these.

when you copy the link to skinny daily - copy the whole thing AND the first space in the blank line after it - there is more to the link than you can "see" and going down to the next line captures it all.
