Remember the beginning of quarantine?

Yeah, we don’t either.

But if you’re finally ready to get that body moving from the comfort of you home, check out these eight free workouts. No equipment needed.

Yoga with Adriene

There’s a reason Adriene’s YouTube channel has over 8 million subs. 

Her accessible, engaging teaching style makes yoga fun for everyone from newbies to experts. 

Her dog Benji’s regular cameos doesn’t hurt either. 

If you’re looking for something specific, she creates flows to target certain muscle groups or work out body pains, like sore wrists

Many videos are in the five-minute range, but you can put together an hour-long routine for a challenge by making a YouTube playlist. 

She says “find what feels good.” 

Give her channel a shot and you’ll be doing just that.

Fitness Blender

Fitness Blender has tons of different workouts to choose from. 

Each workout lists how many calories you burn, what type of workout it is, how long it is, if equipment is required, and a few other different ways to sort.
