Fitness for Free

Okay, let’s get back to the fitness part of my month of fitness, nutrition and health posts. I went to bed thinking about this. I’m not kidding. I crawled into bed thinking about working out. No; I did not get out of bed to write about it or workout but since it was on my mind when I went to sleep and still on it when I got up I decided to make today’s post about free workouts for those who cannot join a gym or buy workout videos from the store. Hey, we all have a budget and there are some things that take center stage while others have to take a backseat.

In the effort to not push fitness to the backseat this year please realize YouTube has a lot of free fitness videos. The ones listed below will just help get you started. I have done many of these last year and liked them as an addition to other routines, but many of them can be used as standalone as well.

Hamstring Harmony

Tight Hips

Yoga Routine for Beginners

Love Handles

Leaner Legs

Intense Cardio Pt 1

Intense Cardio Pt 2

Clearly I like the Tara Stiles yoga on YouTube as I have tried mostly all of them–but not all of them. There are so many more on her playlist but these can get you started and you can pick others if you would prefer to work other areas of your body.

Afrobeat HIIT Dance Workout

There are other workouts on the playlist and she also covers nutrition and weight loss, maintaining weight, etc. I have only done a couple of hers because I have other cardio workouts I like to do offline, but if it’s raining outside, you just don’t feel like going out there, or you would like to workout while it’s too dark to go out then this might be something you would like.

Have fun with whatever workouts you decide to do and please remember not to push yourself into injury. Workout paying attention to your body and what it needs, likes, can handle and cannot handle.

Stay Healthy
