5 Free Streaming Workouts You Can Do Anywhere
There’s always an excuse to skip working out: time, money, the kids. But with so many free streaming classes at your fingertips (thanks, YouTube), you can get a workout in whenever and wherever you want. Your living room at 10 p.m.? Let’s do it. Try one of these five workouts to start.
TONE IT UP
Perky hosts Karena and Katrina may look like those SoCal ladies we sometimes roll our eyes at, but they’re actually refreshingly down-to-earth and super silly. The two trainers often run workouts together and they offer a wide range of classes, from cardio to abs to high-intensity interval training (HIIT). Look for new videos a few times a week.
YOGA WITH ADRIENE
Talk about a girl crush. We heart Adriene Mishler, the cool gal behind a very large library of free yoga videos on YouTube. She has sessions for every situation—yoga for runners, yoga for stress and anxiety, yoga for a broken heart. What we love most, though, is that she’s not one of those kooky spiritual healers. She’s more like your cool hipster friend leading a class in your living room.
MOVE ME FIT
Before you start, you can fill out a questionnaire and get recommended workouts specific to your needs. Each video is also labeled by category (cardio), intensity level (intermediate), length (15 minutes) and any restrictions (not suitable for pregnant women), making it easy to identify exactly what you’re looking for. Some sessions are even taught by celebrity instructors like model-turned-yogi Tara Stiles.
Think cardio, dance and weight training from fitness legends like Jillian Michaels and Jane Fonda. Yep, you read that right—Jane freakin' Fonda. This YouTube channel puts out new workouts every single day, so boredom is not a valid excuse.
Not to pat ourselves on the back, but if you’re totally new to everything #workout, these super-short vids (under a minute) will have you wayyyy less afraid to pick up those weights. We suggest starting with the only arm exercise you'll ever need because it’s so straightforward and simple.
