I try to incorporate exercise more into my daily life, but it’s a constant struggle for me. I don’t love working out, and it can be really hard to force myself off the couch and get a good workout in. I loved physical activity when I was in high school and constantly played sports. Now that I’m not dancing and playing soccer, it’s harder to find workouts that I enjoy! I like workout classes but have the hardest time forcing myself to get to the gym. I prefer to workout at home, but don’t always have the tools I need to get the workout I need. Last year I started doing YouTube workout videos and I finally found my groove! They make working out at home so much more enjoyable! Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorite YouTube channels for working out at home.
I only discovered Blogilates a few months ago, but it’s one of my favorite YouTube channels! First of all, I love Cassey’s personality. She’s encouraging, positive and bubbly. She makes the workouts lighthearted and less stressful. She has a great mix of cardio and strength based Pilates workouts so you can get whatever kind of workout you need. She also has targeted videos for different parts of the body. I love that I can spend 20 minutes on my elliptical and then get in a quick arm and ab workout with her videos.
2. Tone it Up
This Youtube channel is run by Karena and Katrina. Their YouTube channel and website offer target workouts, intense cardio, and weekly workout calendars. Their channel is great is great, and just a small part of what they have to offer. Their website also features a blog, recipes, a nutrition program, and a great community.
3. Be FiT
I love Be FiT because you can get awesome workouts from many fitness trainers, including Jillian Michaels (even though her videos make me want to die, I still love them!). Because of this, you can get such a wide variety of videos and coaching styles.
As if we didn’t have enough reason to love PopSugar, they also have a fitness channel! You can find awesome workout videos run by the same great company you’re used to!
Jessica has great workout videos for beginners, as well as people looking for a more advanced workout. She films her videos right from her house and offers and kind of workout you could imagine. Lately, I’ve been loving her kickboxing videos. I also love that she has her videos on her website organized by type of workout, as well as experience level. If you’re a beginner looking for a good workout, you can see with one click what beginner workouts are available.
I change up my workouts a lot depending on my mood. For most of June and July, I was all about Pilates. The last few weeks I’ve been craving more intense cardio and have been doing a lot of kickboxing and HIIT workouts.
