If you are intending to bring more fitness into your life, you will encounter the temptation to spend money on DVD’s, gym memberships, and gadgets to get in shape, but, hold up! There are plenty of free resources available through the internet. To help you navigate your way through the big world of the internet, I thought I’d share with you my favorite instructors with free resources for you to work out to without spending a dime.
Cassey Ho is a big ball of energy on YouTube and Tumblr. She teaches Pilates on YouTube along with fitness with popular music hits sometimes. What’s nice about Cassey is that she acknowledges the difficulties of poses along the way. She is very enthusiastic, very much in touch with her followers, so you would not be left lost ever. She posts videos on her YouTube channel HERE.
Tone It Up
Let’s say Pilates is not your thing and you want some hardcore workout with a bit of fun, the Tone It Up girls are your gals. They post regularly on YouTube, have an application on iTunes, and even have a website with a heavy emphasis on community. These girls check in daily with their workouts. Sometimes, they go out for a run; other times, they take a fun class. Regardless, you will not feel alone with these girls. Check out their YouTube channel HERE.
If you are in need for inspiration, Heidi Kristoffer is your gal. She is a vegan athlete with a wonderful recovery story. She is going to be posting videos on YouTube soon via Strala (HERE’s a video of her talking about Yoga to get you interested in it) For some more from Heidi, check out her page HERE.
Carrying on with yoga as a path for fitness, I have to recommend Katherine Budig. She takes yoga on a more personal level. Like Heidi, Katherine is a huge animal lover and she shares her enthusiasm for incorporating yoga into your life. She always talks about making yoga a way of life, a path to aiming true and being honest, being full of love, and being true to ourselves. Katherine posts videos of routines on her YouTube channel right HERE.
Whether you need a breakdown of poses or yoga routines, Sarah Beth’s channel is a good option for you. She has such a soothing, calm voice that you are bound to find her videos helpful. Not only is she calming, her videos are shot in a simple backdrop. She does not intimidate you at all. Plus, she is super nice. Check out her channel HERE.
If structure is not your thing, check out Meghan Currie’s YouTube channel. This lady is incredible. Her yoga routines flow, like a dance, and she does not do any voice over. She is a reminder of fitness being a fun activity and an opportunity to play. Her channel is right HERE.
