Missing the gym? Here are Five Free Places you Can Find Workouts on the Web

It can be hard to find a well put together at-home workout that is free. Websites lewer you in with the promise of a fee-free workout, but quickly ask you for your credit card to get started. We did some research and tried some new workouts during the first two weeks of lockdown to find a few amazing trainers that are offering great at-home workouts that are actually free.

Fitness Blender-  Fitness Blender offers hundreds of workouts for all skill levels at the click of a button. Married couple Kelly and David walk viewers through each workout in real-time with no music, which means once you get the hang of it you can throw on a record and get to work. Their website also has a great search bar that lets you be very specific about how long you want to work out, how hard you want to work out, and what kind of workouts you want to do. They are constantly updating their content and are really good at explaining how and why you are doing each movement.

Colin Parks- A local trainer named Colin Parks is doing live fitness classes on Facebook from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday evening. You can tune in to workout with him or you can visit his Facebook page to try one of the videos that he has already recorded and posted onto his feed. You do not need any equipment to do his workouts and he does a great job of walking you through each movement as you do it in real-time with him.

Body Project- The Body Project has around 35 free workouts that you can stream on their YouTube channel whenever you want to workout. They have a solid variety of workouts, but most of them are focused on beginners. So this is the perfect place to start if you haven't been moving in a while.  They even have a seated workout for someone who has a limited ability to move. Their trainers are a little over the top, but they are also very motivational which helps you get through the hardest parts of the workout. 

MadFit- Maddie Lymburner has recorded hundreds of real-time workouts that you can do from the comfort of your own home. Most of her workouts can be done without any equipment and are around 20 mins from start to finish with most requiring little to no equipment.  She also has workouts to calm your stress which is something that all of us could use right now.

Popsugar Fitness- Anna Renderer leads viewers through real-time workouts for all fitness levels. Their workouts are more advanced than the other channels. They have lots of dance-focused workouts if you like to shake your booty and workouts that cater to people with health conditions or women that are pregnant.  There are hundreds of different styles of workouts that run from 10 minutes through an hour so you can really tailor your sweat.
