Humans have lots of smooth muscle in their digestive tract that moves stool through. Here's a bit about smooth muscle tone from a Prentice Hall Anatomy book :

"Both multiunit and visceral smooth muscle tissues show a normal background level of activity, or smooth muscle tone. The regulatory mechanisms detailed above stimulate contraction and increase muscle tone. Neural, hormonal, or chemical factors can also stimulate smooth muscle relaxation, producing a decrease in muscle tone. For example, smooth muscle cells at the entrances to capillaries regulate the amount of blood flow into each vessel. If the tissue becomes oxygen-starved, the smooth muscle cells relax. Blood flow increases, delivering additional oxygen. As conditions return to normal, the smooth muscle regains its normal muscle tone. "

Any of the workout DVDs you mentioned will be great to try. I especially like Pilates - builds fantastic core strength.
