7 of the best free online home workout classes:
Jessica has been a physical therapist and pilates instructor for over 16 years. Her experience really shows as she offers ample modifications and workouts catering to all sorts of injuries.
Those looking for a Pilates-based core blasting workout can step it up with her muscle-shaking plank workouts.
If you’re looking for workouts when you’re working from home and time is short but you still want a full-body session (that only takes 10 quick minutes), try her “Pilates HIIT Workout” to feel the burn.
When we are ready to get some serious sweating in, BodyFit by Amy is where we end up. Her workouts range from 10 to 45 minutes long but pack a serious punch.
Even her BabyFit by Amy series proves that not all prenatal workouts need to be gentle.
Amy shows us how we can still work out with a baby strapped to our chest, with “8-minute Mommy and Me Cardio” workouts.
Her “Body Blast” leaves no muscle behind.
The luxury yoga brand’s YouTube channel has carved out a special place in our hearts.
Offering both full-length 60-minute classes as well as 5-minute how-to videos, the Alo Yoga Channel seems to calm us as soon as we click on it.
Our current favourite is their 7 Days of Gratitude series, full of 30-minute yoga classes that both challenge and relax us.
Jessica Smith’s workouts seem to drop all the frills and just get it done. With 20 years of experience as a certified wellness coach, trainer, and instructor, Jessica has hundreds of workouts posted on her YouTube channel.
Each session offers enough variety so you never feel like you’re doing the same thing twice.
Featuring just her and her sidekick, Peanut the French Bulldog, Jessica’s exercises are sorted by time, style, or activity.
We couldn’t have been more excited to find her crunch-free “8 Minute Total Body Belly Fat Burn”.
On mornings when we feel like we never slept at all, Jessica’s “12-Minute Low Impact Cardio Blast” gave us the energy boost we needed to make it through the day.
Fitness and mommy blogger, Sarah, brings some of our favourite prenatal HIIT workouts.
She manages to be sweet and relatable, even as she’s convincing us to keep going. As a mom, Sarah knows we don’t have a lot of time, so her workouts focus on being quick, but effective.
Everyone who does CrossFit talks endlessly about CrossFit so see what the fuss is all about via their website. No kettlebells required.
Jo is currently pregnant so her workouts are perfect for those new to exercise, with child, and/or those who don’t want anything too strenuous. Look further into her archives for harder workouts.
