If you have a Wii, check out the EA Active 2. It has pre-set programs, you just get up in the morning turn it on and do what the trainer tells you. If you want to work towards a goal like upper body, you tell it "upper body" and whatever length of time you have available. It takes your HR and asks for your weight so that you can get a fairly accurate calorie burn from it. Or if you need a "program" there are 3 and 9 week options, and you can do the 9 week program through several levels. I really like it so far and DH seems to be motivated by it as well. Actually the pre-set programs are pretty much like rpmcduff's suggestions.
