    This may sound corny but get some Tae- bo tapes. I'm a weightlifter and this stuff is a good workout!!

    Smile Hi

    Check out "The Firefighters Workout Book" by Michael Stefano. It has some pretty good ideas for working out at home.

    I know that you said it is hard to do things outside but..
    I bought a used bike at a garage sale and I have two very energetic dogs. We go for a several mile bike ride 4-5 times a week. I work nights so every morning when I get home I go though a set of stretches, not only does it help with flexibility it makes me sleep a lot better and gives me time to unwind.
