I get it. We’re all busy. It’s tough to make it to the gym or a studio class. Time is scarce between work, school, family, and extra curriculars. And sometimes the $30/pop for a class just isn’t feasible. There is always the option of working out at lunch, if you are near a gym or if your work offers that luxury (remember my 8 Genius Rules here). The good news it that there are so many great free programs available online that you can do in the comfort of your own home with little to no equipment. Here are my favorites:
BLOGILATES BY CASSEY HO
I’ve been following Cassey since she started in 2009 and it’s incredible to see the empire that she is built. From her PopFlex activewear line, to her Blogilates app, Pop Pilates classes and PIIT28 bootcamp program – she literally has a workout for every person. You can find her videos on YouTube for free or download her app and pay $1 a month. Seriously so worth it. My general lunchtime workout is 1 mile on the treadmill and 2-3 Blogilates videos. I try to follow her free monthly calendar that she emails out every single month with what videos you should do everyday. Seriously, I’ve never felt prouder of someone that I’ve followed for so long. She deserves every ounce of success she gets!
TONE IT UP BY KARINA & KATRINA
I first discovered the TIU girls from Lauren Conrad’s blog and absolutely loved them. They are so bubbly and make you want to immediately be friends with them. They do the most beautiful videos from scenic locations and there videos take little to no equipment. They also post a free weekly calendar to help you stay on track and have a nutritional program if you want to get really serious! You can see their YouTube channel here.
POPSUGAR FITNESS BY ANNA RENDERER
If you love PopSugar as much as I do, you know that they don’t do anything halfway. So when they launched their fitness channel, they went all out. PopSugar features fun and unique workouts that get you excited about fitness. I learned about POUND the drummer based workout from one of their videos and recently saw that they featured the Vixen Workout that I’m obsessed with here in Atlanta. Follow them for fun, free, engaging workout videos.
THE FITNESS MARSHALL BY CALEB MARSHALL
I’ll admit, I’ve never done a video from The Fitness Marshall, but I’ve watched a ton of them. With over 1.2 million subscribers, Caleb Marshall knows what he is doing. He encourages followers to make their own playlists and customizing their workouts! A full workout is defined by two warm-up videos, eight main workout videos, and one cool down video! So fun!
