The 6 Best Youtube Fitness Channels So You Can Workout at Home (For Free!)
Even though you may be in the midst of practicing some social distancing, you can still work up a sweat in the comfort of your own home, thanks to YouTube.
There are dozens of fitness channels that are free to watch and they offer a huge variety of exercises—everything from aerobics and yoga to boot camp and boxing—all of which you can do without interacting with a group of people at the gym. We’ve rounded up six of the best YouTube channels, so you can stay on top of all of your fitness goals (or at least try to manage some of your anxiety).
1. Yoga With Adriene
If you’re looking for a down-to-earth trainer, there's no one better than Adriene Mishler of Yoga With Adriene. With over four million subscribers, her channel features high-quality free yoga vids for all levels, body types and focuses. Oh, and did we mention her super cute dog also occasionally makes an appearance?
2. Tone It Up
Designed by women, for women, Tone It Up instructors Karena and Katrina built their program around inspiring and supporting their community of fitness lovers, with a focus on health and happiness. One of their most popular workouts is their Strength Training for Beginners because they discuss how exactly to choose the right weights that fit your needs. Not to mention, they also have a full line of products including detoxes and proteins.
MadFit features real-time at home workouts, gym workouts and pretty much anything else you need for a good sweat sesh. Each video, like the 12 minute HIIT circuit above, also includes a warmup. Want more? Founder and instructor Maddie Lymburner even has her own line of cookbooks. Pretty impressive.
This popular channel focuses on POP Pilates, PIIT28 and Bootcamp Sculpting. (Don’t worry, we didn’t know what the first two were either but after getting into this channels, we're now Pilates pros). Lead by instructor Cassey Ho, each workout focuses on your core, legs, arms and butt.
6. The Fitness Marshall
For those of us who’d rather be doing anything but working out, Fitness guru Caleb Marshall combines popular music from musicians like Kelly Clarkson to create dance routines that help you break a sweat. Plus, dancing alone is better than any workout we've ever done.
