Fitness Blender

Fitness Blender is one of the most popular YouTube fitness channels, and for good reason.  Fitness blender has a variety of workouts available, of different times and different skill levels.  Most of Fitness Blender’s videos are HIIT and cardio focused.

Yoga with Adriene

If yoga is more your thing, then you can’t do better than Yoga with Adriene.  Adriene has a bunch of yoga videos available to choose from, and covers beginner poses, more advanced moves, and also workouts to help relieve muscle stress.

Need gear?  Amazon has a lot of yoga equipment in their Basics collection for cheap, including a yoga mat that I highly recommend.

The Fitness Marshall

A lot of people generally think that dance oriented workouts are silly, but nothing is off the table for getting fit, provided you have fun!  The Fitness Marshall has a bunch of different dance videos, focused around cardio workouts that are designed to get you moving and sweating.


Blogilates is a channel that focuses on pilates, which is somewhat similar to yoga but focused more on building a strong core.  This channel has pilates videos for all pilates levels, including some very beginner friendly videos to get you started.

Need gear?  Pilates typically needs a thicker mat to work on than with yoga, to provide additional spinal support.  These thick yoga mats will be perfect for pilates workouts.

Millionaire Hoy

Millionare Hoy is a very positive trainer, and his videos focus a lot on getting active, and getting stronger.  Other than his motivating mindset, Hoy also has a bunch of 30-day and 90-day workout plans, giving you a structured workout regime to get though and making it easier to stick to a fitness plan.

Jessica Smith TV

Jessica Smith TV is a YouTube channel focused more towards women’s fitness.  Most of Jessica’s workouts are cardio based coupled with light weights, but she also as light, positive videos like the ‘Walk and Talks’ above, which offer motivation and a less hardcore mindset to fitness.

Need gear?  This Amazon Basics dumbbell set will get you started with the lighter weights used with these workouts.

The Body Coach

The Body Coach’s channel mainly focuses on HIIT workouts, which are fast, high intensity cardio workouts.  Like many channels, he has videos for all fitness levels, and this is especially important with an intense cardio workout like HIIT.  He also has videos that feature different types of equipment (or no equipment), in order to inject some variety into the workouts.

Zuzka Light

Zuzka Light’s workout videos are very much focused on strength training, and feature videos with and without workout equipment.  She also has videos of various lengths, including 5 and 10 minute workout videos to get in a quick workout even on the busiest days.

Need gear?  Kettleballs are a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a variety of workouts.  You can find them for cheap here.

Physio Fitness

When you get injured, it can be really hard to workout and re-strengthen the injured body part.  Adding on the fact that physical therapy can cost a lot of money, and is not always necessary for more minor injuries (that can still affect strength) and it can be hard to know where to begin.  Physio Fitness focuses on exercises and workouts that can help restore motion and strength in commonly injured body parts, making it so you can get back to normal mobility and your normal workout routine.
