Weight Training for Middle Age Female - Seeking Advice

I do exercise (5) days a week. I do the Leslie Sansone walking video's on youtube, which have been fantastic.
I need to also incorporate some weight training every other day.
Can anyone recommend a youtube video to get me started?
Thank you!

    I'm guessing you mean dumbbells? I like almost anything by The Firm. I think you may be able to find some of their workouts on YouTube or
    Kelly Coffey Meyer has her own videos/workouts, check out and exerciseTV as well

    I like Jillian Michaels, but that’s not free... maybe try fitness blender? I see that recommended quite a bit. Or Cassy Ho of Blogilates- she uses body weight exercises mostly.

    Have a look at Hasfit on YouTube. They have some good short programmes that are for beginners.

    Cheers, h.
