I don’t know about you, but walking and running outside or making up my own at-home workouts gets a little old after a while. Don’t get me wrong—Fresh air is always great and sometimes doing a freestyle exercise routine to Taylor Swift songs is ideal. However, spicing up the workout circuit is essential on days I just want someone else to guide me (and without having to pay for a personal trainer). Enter: the best free online workout videos, because there are enough bills to pay already.
Right now, the Internet is a Mary Poppins bag of exercise methods to try. (Even Billy Blanks, an actual workout legend, made a resurgence!) As far as I’m concerned, that’s all the reason I need to get moving and go down a YouTube rabbit hole of TaeBo, yoga, dance, kickboxing and every other workout videos I can get my hands, er, eyes on. If your workout routine is as stale as mine, here is just a small fraction of the best free online workouts you can press play and follow from your living room.
Pro-tip: Depending on the type of workout, you may want to secure simple exercise equipment. Nothing too hefty though—I’m talking small-space friendly items like a yoga mat, foam roller or hand weights. Once you’ve got a miniature at-home gym set-up, you’re ready to try just about every free workout video on the Internet right now. So let’s get moving, shall we?
