Finding it hard to workout now that your gym is closed or sick of paying a ton of money every month for workouts that don’t work? We get it, we’ve been in the same boat. Which is why we tried out a bunch of different workouts you can do in your living room and narrowed down to our top 5 favorites. They are almost all free or have free trials so you can try them out to see for yourself.
Daily Burn is the best “I feel like I’m in a real gym workout class” fitness program that we tried. Everyday at 9 am EST they start a live fitness class that you can tune into and join. Even better, they have a large library of individual instructor workouts ranging from HIIT to yoga to cardio strength making you feel like you’re working with your own personal trainer. Navigating this library is really easy because you can filter by duration, difficulty, pace, and no equipment. Right now, they have a 30 day free trial special that we highly recommend signing up for.
If you’re looking for live classes and a library of over 4,000+ on-demand fitness classes then look no further than Obe Fitness. Forbes said it was better than Peloton and Mirror because you get high quality fitness without the need for expensive equipment. They offer a free 7-day trial and if you like it their pricing is pretty reasonable at less than $30 per month.
Yes, Popsugar the magazine has a fitness program and yes it is 100% free on Youtube. They work with notable trainers to lead their in-person classes with a new one every week or two. But we really like that they offer something for everyone from beginners to dance to abs to full-body to no equipment to butt to you name it workouts. If you are looking for a risk-free, yet high quality fitness program Popsugar Fitness is it.
Amazon Prime Video
Believe it or not, if you are an Amazon Prime Video member you have access to a ton of free at-home workouts. It can be a little overwhelming, but we tried a bunch of them and these are some of our favorites. 21 Day Transformation is like having your own personal trainer and offers a full body workout in 10 different workouts. Lumowell has a great 8 minute ab workout that you can do every day, don’t be thrown off by the animated instructor because it actually was very helpful. If you’re looking for something else just search a specific workout in your Amazon Prime Video account and try them out.
Run or Walk Outside
With all of these great options for fitness programming it is easy to forget about simply taking a run or walk outside. The Mayo Clinic recommends at least 20 minutes of moderate aerobic activity every day. If you are a beginner fitness enthusiast or don’t know where to start we recommend you start by taking a walk or light run outside. Once you get into the routine then try one of the fitness programs we listed above.
