Some days you don’t feel like heading out your front door to the gym or even taking the short walk to your community’s fitness center, but you still want to work up a sweat. When the weather is frightful or your schedule isn’t allowing for exercise away from your abode, a streaming service can be a great way to work up a sweat in your apartment. Here are a few of our picks for affordable ways to work out at home.
Daily Burn: Stream videos on dailyburn.com, also available as a mobile app. Daily Burn has a wide variety of classes and programs for you to choose from based on your goals (weight loss, strength, toning, etc.) and fitness or experience level. You can follow along daily with a new workout each day with Daily Burn 365 or select a program to follow over the course of a few weeks or a few months. Premium services include virtual personal training support and additional workouts.
BeachBody On Demand: Beachbody is home to famed workouts such as P90X, Insanity, and more. Celebrity trainers such as Shaun T, Tony Horton, and Autumn Calabrese lead you through goal-focused programs and meal plans. Nutritional supplements are offered, but not a requirement. BeachBody also has a new challenge workout each day if you like to switch things up. (beachbodyondemand.com or available as an app)
Gaia: Yoga is a great apartment-friendly workout as it’s low impact and doesn’t make much noise (your downstairs neighbors will thank you). Gaia has a huge array of yoga videos to help you quiet your mind, strengthen your body, and gain flexibility. Pilates videos are also available on Gaia.
