If you’re like me, the last thing you want to do during quarantine is working out. But after almost a full year of sitting around, working from home, and stuffing my face with chips and queso, even I am starting to feel the effects of a sedentary life and the encompassing boredom.
So, with my city being in a stage five outbreak, I’ve decided that the best course of action is to work out from home. If you are also attempting to avoid the gym during this pandemic, here are five fitness YouTubers that put in the work, and I recommend.
Last year, at the beginning of the pandemic, Chloe Ting’s name was all over social media. A lot of female lifestyle bloggers and YouTuber’s took the Chloe Ting Challenge. Chloe’s channel and videos include free workout calendar schedules if you’d like to pre-plan your workouts in advance.
My favorite workout on Chloe’s channel is actually a playlist called Get Peachy Challenge and features workouts for your booty.
Chloe’s channel has over 19 million subscribers. Chloe has curated challenge playlists for the current year on her channel, but you can find past challenges on her website here.
You can check out her Instagram here for motivation and inspiration.
If you’re like me, you don’t have a lot of time in your day to dedicate to working out. Maybe you only have 30 minutes on your lunch break or an hour before or after work.
My favorite work out of her’s is the 10 MIN FULL BODY BEGINNER WORKOUT. I get all areas of my body worked out in ten minutes, and it’s a beginner workout–win-win.
Pamela’s YouTube channel has over 5 million subscribers. Pamela has curated playlists from beginner-friendly to medium-level to intense workouts. She also has targeted playlists for certain parts of the body, such as upper body & arms, booty & legs, and abs & core.
You can also check out her Instagram here for free weekly workout schedules.
The Fitness Marshall: Caleb Marshall
I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of running. The only way you’d get me to run is if a zombie or clown were chasing me. This is why it was so hard for me to get in my daily cardio.
That all changed when I found The Fitness Marshall on YouTube. Caleb, a self-declared “Fitness Pop Star,” has put together many fun and energetic dance workout routines to popular pop songs.
In his videos, Caleb is usually backed by two dancers, and you have the option to do the workout exactly as Caleb does or follow one of the backup dancers for a modified routine.
My favorite video to dance along with is Best Friend – Saweetie ft. Doja Cat | Caleb Marshall | Dance Workout.
Caleb’s channel has over 3 million subscribers. Caleb has curated playlists for 30-minute sweat sessions, 60-minute sweat sessions, Low Impact (Apartment Friendly), and even heart-healthy workouts!
You can check out his Beacons here for all of his socials, videos, and more.
Sydney is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. She is also a Women’s Health Magazine Action Hero and owns Royal Change, a fitness and nutrition company online and in Charlotte, NC.
The main thing that I love about Sydney’s videos is that she has a mix of videos that require equipment and videos that don’t require equipment.
As someone who’s been working from home throughout all of quarantine and doesn’t feel comfortable enough going into a public gym, I love her no-equipment-needed playlist.
Sydney’s channel has over 1 million subscribers. Sydney has videos that range from 30-minute workouts to 45-minute workouts to 60-minute workouts. I love following one of her 30-minute workouts and pairing it with a workout from The Fitness Marshall.
You can check out her Instagram here and her website here.
Vicky is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and athlete. I love Vicky’s personality and energy. She’s incredibly friendly and warm, and I feel like I’m working out with a best friend.
If you’re just getting back into working out and fitness (like I am after several months), then you might enjoy my favorite video of hers, which is the LAZY GIRL Full Body WORKOUT – 7 min. (NO JUMPING). Thank God for no jumping! Lol.
Vicky’s curated playlists are a lot like Pamela’s in that they target specific parts of the body. However, she also has challenge playlists similar to Chloe’s. You could do the bigger booty challenge or the 30 day snatched waist challenge.
You can check out her Instagram here and her real-time workout app here.
There you have it! Those are the five Fitness YouTubers I recommend for working out at home. Have a fitness YouTuber you love to work out alongside with? Share them below!
