Home Sweat Home

It may be awhile before gyms begin to open their doors for your weekly fitness classes, a significant stress reliever for those avid gym goers. How many times have you walked around your neighborhood or paced the rooms of the house? Integrating creativity into any workout routine is essential to warding off boredom and repetition. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, many fitness organizations are opening their virtual “doors” to a variety of workout sessions, some that you may have been hesitant to attempt in real life.

Fitness Blender:

Even without an annual membership, Fitness Blender offers free, full-length workout videos to any of its site’s visitors. Home to all things fitness, the site features hundreds of free workout videos, affordable workout programs and meal plans built with registered dieticians and nutritionists. As an organization, their belief is that fitness should be accessible, no matter where you are getting fit from. Though visitors can enjoy a plethora of free video content, for a small fee, day-to-day programs are available.

For example, the FB Fit program is eight weeks, 51 minutes per day, of building muscles and toning. Or the four-week FB Bored Easily is for those of you who, literally, get bored easily. Take a more independent approach and try new videos every week, sorting by difficulty, equipment needed, length and muscle group focus. 

Each month, over 35 million users work out using the more than 500 free workout videos posted on Fitness Blender. Join the 35 million strong! No actually, they’re probably really strong.

POPSUGAR Fitness:

With POPSUGAR Fitness, time is of the essence. There’s no more excuses to miss a quick 30-minute workout from the comfort of your living room. Featuring celebrity guest trainers, the majority of the videos do not require any equipment, except your own personal stamina to keep up! The best part about this site is, hands down, the dancing. If you love to dance, you’ll love to do it with POPSUGAR Fitness too. 

Whether you click on the Old-School Hip-Hop Grooves Workout, the Cardio Dance and Sculpting Workout or the Cardio Dance Mixed with HIIT Drills Workout, you’re sure to break a sweat. Break that sweat to a new rhythm every time you workout. After exploring all of the free workout videos, take a peek at their healthy recipes, mental health support page or fitness advice columns. This health community has the answers you are looking for.
