8 Fitness Gurus You Can Work Out With for Free on YouTube

We all try to live an active lifestyle—whether that’s going to the gym a few times a week, flowing through a yoga class, or trekking around in the great outdoors. But sometimes we’re too short on time (or, let’s be real, motivation) to head into a crowded workout studio or expose ourselves to the hot summer sun. Lucky for us, there are other options.

The workouts are time-flexible, accessible, and expert-led. In other words, it’s basically a treasure trove of fitness.

That’s why we decided to put together a list of our favorite online fitness channels just to help you narrow your search a little bit.
