7 YouTube Workouts For Beginners — From HIIT to Dance Cardio to Pilates
Sampling new fitness classes can be reminiscent of going on first dates: it's often nerve-racking and a bit awkward as you feel out the vibe, but the right match can lead to lifelong love.
There should always be a vetting process before that first
date class, though — so, like any good friend would, we did some digging.
Below you'll find HIIT, yoga, dance cardio, barre, kickboxing, and Tabata workout videos. They're all great options for newbies (no equipment needed!) that you can try out in the comfort of your own home.
And while they can't all be the one, we're confident that you'll feel sparks (and sweat!) with at least a few of the following beginner YouTube workouts.
