From Yoga and Pilates to HIIT: 10 of the Best YouTube Channels For Free At-Home Workouts

If you have an open space, you can 100-percent work out from home. Not convinced? Try bodyweight exercises in your living room — add equipment if you have some — or roll out a mat next to your bed and stream workouts on demand (yes, this does require good WiFi). Classes you might find in a group setting can be accessed online through paid subscriptions like Tone It Up, Active by POPSUGAR, Peloton (they have more than just bike and treadmill classes!), and P.volve. There's also a supersimple and zero-cost way to get your sweat session in: YouTube.

Utilizing YouTube channels spearheaded by certified trainers is one of my favorite tools for at-home workouts. You can find channels specific to yoga, for instance, or those that have a wide variety of workouts ranging from Tabata to other forms of HIIT. These videos are available at your convenience. You can work out at your own pace on your own time, which gives you the flexibility you need to fit exercise into your day (if you're interested, of course). Check out a list of great YouTube channels ahead.

Yoga With Adriene

Yoga teacher Adriene Mishler posts a wide variety of videos on her channel, which is one of my absolute favorites on YouTube. There are yoga flows for stress, core strength, full-body flexibility, and more. She also breaks up videos by what your occupation is or interests are (chef, manual labor, runners, climbers, teachers, etc.) and by emotions (yoga for grief, insecurity, self-doubt, joy, etc.). Oh, and did I mention she has flows for period cramps and PMS?
