P90x may be a good fit for you, not as motivational as a personel trainer but for home workouts on a budget you cant go wrong. These are hard core workouts that will bring your fitness up a few levels, I have done the workouts the past 2 off seasons with great results loosing weight, building strength and muscle. The workouts combine cardio,pilates,yoga,plyometrics,martial arts,strength and core workouts. The different workouts keep it interesting, and the intensity and difficulty keep it challenging. I use stretch cords because they are convient and cheap, I dont need freeweights to get a good workout, most of the moves are bodyweight anyway,pushups,chairdips,pullups,etc.

There are many advantages of working out at home, motivation is not one of them,for me anyway! I like the fact I dont have to commute to the gym,dont have to wait for equipment, dont get sick from all the germs,gym fees,contracts,broke equipment, closed for holidays,etc. I dont deal with any of that now. Now that Im 44 I realize strength training isnt just about specific muscle groups, for me its about a complete workout in the shortest amount of time to retain as much muscle as I get older, also to prevent muscle imbalances. For me P90x gets that accomplished.
