Ready to begin an exercise routine without committing to a gym? Looking for something that’s low-maintenance and will save you gas money? It’s never too late to ramp up your physical activity — whether it’s on a daily or weekly schedule. While some people have lofty, yet realistic fitness goals, many are stuck in a sedentary rut. But you can get into a new regimen without running around town.
Getting in shape doesn’t have to be a drag, and technology makes it easier to form doable exercise habits. Want to rock out on a treadmill? Pump it up with dumbbells? How about training for a marathon?
There are ways to do it without draining your gas tank or wallet. Turn on your TV and get into a free streaming workout to help you achieve those wellness goals. Rather than pay for a gym or yoga studio membership, you can attend classes right at home without spending a dime, and work out in your living room.
Here are a few of the best places to start.
YouTube is the most obvious stop for fitness content. You’ll find a variety of styles, trainers and niche fare; whether you’re looking for weightlifting instruction, dance, yoga, full body workouts or cycling, there’s something for everyone on YouTube. To help you navigate the scene, we suggest a few channels to check out here.
Visit The Yoga Room or Yoga with Adriene for beginner yoga techniques. MadFit’s video workouts can be done anywhere, Fitness Blender has multiple intensity levels and More Life Health Seniors features stretches and other exercises for strength and balance.
Head over to 305 Fitness for high-energy dance workouts with in-house DJs. Channels by Chloe Ting, Simeon Panda and Pamela Reif all provide at-home programs that focus on every part of the body. Cue up YouTube on your smart TV or cast it to your TV screen from your phone and stream any of these workouts.
Launched in 2019, FitOn offers hundreds of free on-demand and live streaming workouts that include strength training, HIIT, cardio, yoga, walking, dance, prenatal and circuits. Home to an array of high- and low-impact sequences, the app has routines that are tailored for individuals or entire families. You have the option to choose your intensity level, session length or target body area.
Follow along with professional trainers or celebrity instructors like Halle Berry, Lindsey Vonn or the Chainsmokers to experience martial arts, Zumba and body sculpting drills. And each day, FitOn offers up to 10 live group classes that you can attend without anyone seeing you. Now available to stream on Roku and Apple TV.
During the pandemic, CorePower Yoga began offering some of its online classes for free. While the majority of its content is accessible with a paid subscription, you can also stream its collection of free classes without being a paying member.
Ranging from 20 minutes to an hour, each of the seven sessions focuses on a different area. Keep in mind that in yoga, it’s OK for beginners to follow one or more of the same routines daily as the body and mind become accustomed to the new practice. Download the CorePower Yoga app on Roku, FireTV, Android TVs or Apple TV to stream the free classes.
Prime Video members have access to Amazon’s free library of exercise videos covering Pilates, yoga, strength training, weight-lifting and other practices. The platform’s Exercise & Fitness section houses fitness content for all ages. Among the highlights: You can stream workouts from Maggie Binkley, a 10-day yoga challenge with Chelsey Jones or Qigong instruction from Don Fiore.
Fawesome is known for being a streaming service that offers movies and TV shows, but the app also has dedicated fitness content. Users can stream videos under its Fawesome Yoga, Fawesome Pilates or Fawesome Fit You umbrellas where you’ll find barre, cardio, yogalates, kettlebell, full-body sequences and more. And most of the workouts are short and sweet. Stream the Fawesome app on Roku, FireTV, Apple TV or your smart TV.
Looking for more? Netflix makes it easy to practice mindfulness with its Headspace content. Samsung’s new smart TVs have a wellness hub, and Tubi users can tap into more than 100 free fitness videos (including Jane Fonda classics). You can also hit the ground running with these paid subscription services for your workouts.
