Free online workout videos can be real gems. They offer an effective workout instructed by a digital yet infectiously peppy exercise guru and most importantly, they don't require any money or leaving the house.
The best free online workout videos are the ones that give you a bang for your zero bucks. They should target every muscle in 45 minutes or less and not require too much equipment or space to perform. Fitness Blender and PopSugar are fitness channels that offer a wide collection of free exercise videos for all levels. To save you some time and exhaustion, here are our top picks.
Victoria's Secret Model Workout: Though Victoria's Secret models' disproportionately long torsos and thin legs are mainly a result of them winning the genetic lottery, it can't hurt to do a free 10-minute workout with one of their trainers. This one's a killer, but it's only 10 minutes so suck it up.
The Ultimate 30-Minute Cardio Pilates Workout: This workout strategically combines cardio and Pilates without making you want to die (for the most part). Though the instructor and demonstrators are wearing sneakers, this can be done barefoot with a mat or carpet. It does require light weights but can be done in small spaces. Even better, it's a workout from California's Burn Pilates, which is usually $22 per class.
45 Min HIIT Cardio and Abs Workout: HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is both a muscle-toning and heart-pumping interval workout that'll keep you distracted from your exhaustion while you try to keep up with the variety of challenging sets. Fitness Blender's 45-minute HIIT shows you how many calories you're burning and counts down the seconds for each set, which will let you know exactly when the pain will end.
