If you’re a fitness enthusiast like me, you like to try new things to keep your fitness routine different and interesting.
When I first started developing my love for exercise I was looking for free ways to workout without committing to a DVD or a gym membership. It just so happened that YouTube was one of the places I came across that offered a lot of knowledgeable trainers with full workouts to watch or replicate for free (how awesome!)
Here’s my compilation of YouTube channels/trainers I recommend you check out:
Karena and Katrina of Tone It Up!
These two gals are my absolute favorite, and they’re the trainers I chose to follow/join because I am a member of their lifestyle plan. Trust me, I have not regretted my decision to be a member of their plan once either – I’ve lost 15+ pounds with these ladies! K&K post videos every Tuesday through Livestrong Woman (see below) and the workouts are always free and challenging!
Livestrong Woman is a combination of female trainers, nutritionists, etc. on YouTube (the Tone It Up! gals are on there too) with free workouts and advice. They post videos all the time, plus they’re fun to watch and well made.
BodyRock’s channel self-defines itself as the “Home Workout Movement,” meaning you can do all of their videos at home and still get an effective workout. Of the workouts I’ve done with their varied trainers I always found myself out of breath or sweaty ;)
Susan of Strong Like Susan
Let me just say, Susan is strong. Her workouts are beastly, especially if you’re doing her 30 Day Ab Challenge (be prepared to modify her moves a lot)! Aside from the tough workouts, she combines different moves that you don’t normally see to her workouts, which means you’re not bored.
Tara Stiles of Tara Stiles Yoga
Tara Stiles is one of the coolest yogis you’ll ever come across, I promise. She’s got a really awesome presence about her and her videos are always relaxing and fun! I enjoy doing her yoga moves when I want to mix things up a little bit, such as on an active rest day. Tara’s more refined videos are also a part of Livestrong Woman.
