Lockdown or not, this is something you should be doing everyday, or at least five days a week, say doctors. And you can’t make an excuse that gyms are closed because millions of people around the world now work out in their own homes following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Should you plan on starting (weights, pilates, calisthenics, yoga, aerobics, or something else), let us guide you to the best resources online, for free. Here’s a compilation of the best at-home, equipment-free workout channels on YouTube.
This channel, started by Cassey Ho in 2009, has become one of the largest female-focused online fitness classes. Not that men can’t take advantage of Blogilates’ POP Pilates—a combination of pop music and pilates movements to create a more danceable practice.
There is a wide variety of videos for fitness enthusiasts of all level and the best part, almost all exercises available can be performed without any equipment—even a yoga mat is optional. Subscribe to the channel and try out a few moves immediately.
The Fitness Marshall channel, started in 2014 by Caleb Marshall, is all about dancing one’s way into fitness. The channel provides a steady stream of entertaining, heart-pumping and user-friendly dance videos that are perfect for cardio sessions.
Appropriate for all levels of enthusiasts, the videos with infectious rhythm and clear instructions make one forget the exercise aspect, making sure you don’t tire out quickly. Although the videos are short, you can also compile playlists within the channel for longer workout sessions.
