With gyms and other recreational facilities closed to help stop the spread of coronavirus, you have to get creative to fit in your workout. But really, you only have to look as far as YouTube for inspiration. No matter your workout of choice, or your fitness level, there’s a channel for you. Here are just a few to consider:
Yoga with Adriene
Adriene Mishler’s videos are perfect for those who have an established yoga practice and those who are starting from scratch. She has videos of varying lengths and for just about any person or occasion, including yoga for runners, office break yoga, yoga to heal stress and yoga for kids. She also has multiple 30-day yoga challenges on her channel. Mishler is always supportive and takes the mystery out of yoga. Plus, in many videos, her dog Benji makes an appearance.
The Fitness Marshall
If you like your workouts disguised as dancing, look no further than Caleb Marshall. Marshall choreographs high-energy routines dancers of all shapes, sizes, abilities and skill levels can enjoy. Marshall has a never-ending well of energy and is always encouraging dancers to let loose and have fun. His moves are fresh, and his routines are set to songs from some of the biggest names in music, including Lizzo, Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa.
If you’re constantly switching up your workout, consider browsing POPSUGAR Fitness. Workouts featured on this channel include cardio, HIIT, dance, barre, boxing and weight training. There also are yoga videos and videos that target specific body parts. Plus, each video features a different instructor, so you’re not doing the same moves over and over again. Videos vary in length from 5 to 45 minutes.
Cassey Ho is the creator of Pop Pilates – pilates set to pop music – so her videos always have a ton of energy and fun music to keep you interested in the workout. Ho does full-length workouts, but many of her videos are shorter, between 10 and 15 minutes, and target one part of the body. Her PIIT (Pilates Intense Interval Training) videos are, as expected, intense. She also has several 30-day challenges on her channel and sometimes posts recipe videos.
