since i moved to texas i've been working out from home a lot more and i've found lots of great workouts online that vary in length and the best part is they're free! the cost of gym memberships and classes adds up quickly and sometimes i just don't have the time to drive back and forth to a 60 minute class. i'm sure i'm not alone here so, i thought i would share a few of my go-to sites with y'all!
oh… and just because i'm working out in my living room doesn't mean i slack off in the workout style department. i checked out Outdoor Voices in Austin last week (fell in love immediately) and picked up these tights + sports bra that have quickly made it into frequent sweat-sesh rotation.
Nike + Training Club App: http://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/womens-training/apps/nike-training-club
this one is my favourite! i do workouts in my condo or at the gym in my complex using this app at least twice a week. there are over 100 workouts, a few require equipment but most don’t and they range from 15-60 minutes so i can mix and match based on how much time i have. it's great because you can choose how difficult you want it to be, target specific areas and preview each workout before you do it to make sure it’s what you’re after. oh, and you can pair music on your iphone to the workout!
into the gloss: http://intothegloss.com/tag/workouts/
there are a few workouts on here that i like for toning + abs. similar movements/workouts that i'd normally do in a barre or pilates class. most are around 10 minutes so i'll usually do them after a run.
lots of variety for workouts on this site + helpful quick reads about fitness related topics like form, what workouts are best for what, etc.
Yoga with Adriene: https://www.youtube.com/user/yogawithadriene/videos & Sarah Beth Yoga: https://www.youtube.com/user/SarahBethShow/videos
i've done a couple of sessions with each of these gals and usually have my own tunes on in the background. i have scoliosis which is what drew me to Sarah Beth, she targets certain areas/solves for specific issues in some of her videos.
i'm considering checking out one of these two sites that require payment for their yoga videos, i mean it costs $18+ to go to one yoga class so to have unlimited access to a variety of great instructors monthly seems reasonable.
https://www.yogaglo.com - first 15 days free, $18 a month.
https://www.blackswanyoga.tv/channels - $8 a month per teacher (i went to one of these studios in Austin, it's a donation based payment system which i think is mega cool as it makes yoga affordable for more people!).
i haven't tried this one out yet but i'm curious: http://7-min.com - partly because i'm a believer of high intensity interval training but mostly because 7 minutes suits my attention span ;) this New York Times article explains the nitty gritty science-y stuff behind it. if anyone has tried it leave a comment and let me know what you think!
**if you have any recommendations for at home workouts pretty please share the wealth and shoot us a message or comment below!
