Default Types of exercise to do at home

I live on the 2nd floor of an apartment, and wanted to know if I can do any type of cardio, without it being too noisy?

I go to the gym 3x a week (at least try to) and I do cardio (trying to push myself to start jogging) on the treadmill and weight training.

What about running up and down the stairs of your building? It's great cardio and works the glutes, hamstrings and quads!

That is an idea, but the stairs are inside the building and you can hear people when they stomp up the stairs, so that would be too noisy. Maybe I will just start my irish dancing again, that was always very fast paced and gets the heartbeat up!

If you are into DVDs, try Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred or No More Trouble Zones. They combine cardio with weight training, aren't too "thumpy" and get results pretty quickly, which is a motivation boost.

bodyweight exercises are good, and you could also get some yoga or pilates dvds. P90X can all be done at home.
