If you made a New Year’s resolution to drop a couple of pounds or get fit, you don't neccessarily need to sign up for a pricey gym membership or fork out on expensive equipment. Instead, there's plenty of great new fitness DVDs out to help you reach your fitness goals and stay happy and healthy all year round.

Tone up with a friendly face thanks to Lorraine Kelly’s Living to the Max (RRP £18.01). Filmed in a proper exercise class with Lorraine and her friends, it’s a great way to see fitness done by real women. It features a mixture of dance and aerobics to funky tunes, designed to burn calories and shift fat.

For something a bit gentler, or if your main aim is to build strength and improve your mobility this year, try Pilates for the Over 50s with Liz Chandler (£15.86).This is a beginners's guide to the popular exercise that hones your core, improves posture and balance and helps keep your joints supple with exercises aimed specifically at ladies and men over 50.
