I love to workout, and I’m still reluctant to visit the gym in person. After all, the safety of hitting up a shared fitness center during the pandemic is up for debate. So for now, I’ve been turning to workouts I can stream from the comfort of my living room.
But streaming exercise programs aren’t always an easy space to navigate. You have to find an instructor you like, moves you can do, and something that doesn’t require too much equipment. Some are easier than others to do from an apartment, especially a small one. Plus, when it comes to streaming, some are more expensive than others. Yes, the price range is wide: There are free fitness tutorials you can stream on YouTube, and there are those that require gear like the Peloton bike or that Mirror workout you’ve seen all over Insta.
We’ve gathered up a list of some of our favorites to get you through your at-home workouts, no matter why you’re doing them.
