REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!
Yep , I went out and asked people, “Hey y’all, I’m doing a little research for my blog www.mireillesjourneytohealth.com and would appreciate your input. Any of y’all have some favorite, free, YouTube workout videos you recommend? Trying to show that your financial situation doesn’t have to hold you back. What do y’all think?” Here are the responses I got:
http://www.popsugar.com “Pop Sugar website has free online workout videos.” – B.N.
www.fitnessblender.com “Great question and it’s true, you can have a great effective workout for free, without equipment. As a personal trainer myself I’ve spent considerable time watching different free sites. I look for quality, content, certifications, safety, and great posture both in demonstration and in their cues. My favorite site to recommend to people looking to workout at home is www.fitnessblender.com They have recently updated their website to make it very user friendly. You can pick your own workouts and set them to your own calendar. The variety in time and intensity, and fitness level is all availalble. This is all free. You can also spend a very nominal amount, I think it’s under $10 and have preprogrammed workouts for you. They basically go through all their workouts and help you pick out a well rounded balanced workout. As a note: I have absolutlely no affiliation with Fitness Blender whatsoever. I just like what they do and approve of the help they give people with quality content. Also, so many fitness sites are oversexed with people underdressed etc. This is no nonsense, husband and wife cutie patootie couple just doing what they love and helping people.” – J.B.W.C.
http://www.tristarproductsinc.com “I’m a big fan of the Rack – I have one (I do go to the gym too but this thing is awesome). It’s an all in one workout at-home-gym for like 100 bucks. I use it all the time. The Rack combines 10 workout machines into one.” – L.J.
http://youtu.be/WRo3_p_V79c “I have a gym membership but there are a lot of days I use youtube for Yoga. I’ve never been to a class and do not want to pay or embarrass myself. I also have added a few area specific workouts to my Pinterest board. I find her series to be easy to follow and not at all intimidating.” – T.P.P
https://m.facebook.com/BikiniBodyMommy “The Bikini Body Mommy Challenge is great and completely free!” – S.F.
www.grokker.com “The best Yoga, Fitness, and Cooking video classes taught.” – K.D-S.
http://www.emilyskye.com/ “Look at Emily Skye.” – J.R.
www.youtube.com/user/brettcap “I like Brett Cap. I just started watching his videos and he’s very informative. Easy on the eyes too.” – S.D.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5nyrD4eM64 “Hey Mimi! You are amazing, I love your blog and inspiration. We like anything Jillian Michaels, especially her yoga.” – A.B.
Thank You All For Your Input!
I appreciate all of the input. These are great suggestions! I want to add a personal favorite to this list. I love Yoga With Adriene! I’ve mentioned her before. She has an entire YouTube channel, https://www.yogawithadriene.com She makes you feel comfortable at whatever level you might be. She has routines for every possible scenario you can imagine. I rarely, if ever, do workouts other than yoga with youtube videos. However, I really, really love YouTube for yoga.
Find Your Favorite And Share It With Us
There are so, so many free workouts available online. I’m not suggesting you have to love one of these videos. These people found workouts online, and if you look around, you can, too. When I found Yoga With Adriene, I’d never done yoga before. I searched YouTube for beginner’s yoga. I found one of her videos, and I was hooked. I now do yoga 2-3 times each week. Go to YouTube and search for the type of workout you think you’d like. You might search for kickboxing, zumba, weightlifting, pilates, or HIIT. Anything and everything is available. If the first video you find isn’t your thing, try a different one. There are so many! I would encourage you, that if you already have a workout online that you love, or once you find one, to post it in the comments. Thank you in advance for sharing your workouts with us!
