For many of us, planning an at-home workout has become an essential part of our daily routine as we all stay home and self-isolate.
There’s no right or wrong way to spend your time quarantined at home, but for many of us scheduling a workout has been an important break from working remotely or binge-watching our favorite series all day long. If you’re looking for a workout class or training session you can do from the comfort of your own home with limited gym equipment available, we’ve got you covered–get the scoop on team SN’s favorite at-home workouts below.
Classpass is a membership to fitness studios and gyms across the world, all facilitated by an app. You pay a varying monthly fee from $49 to $199 depending on how many ‘credits’ you want, which unlocks your ability to attend tons of different classes. I’ve been a member for years and love it because of the variety I can inject into my fitness routine. The app also has digital workouts so you can stream just as many classes, all that feel very interactive! From HIIT, to pilates and barre, to yoga.
Ladder is probably the closest thing you can get to an in-person 1-1 training session. It’s an at-home workout app that pairs you with a real, certified coach, who customizes a program for you. The workouts can be live or on-demand, but regardless, your trainer is actively involved in your progress. I definitely recommend Ladder especially during this time when self-motivation may be more challenging than ever! I recommended trainers Lauren Kanski and Meghan Hayden.
I’ve heard good things about TAM but after one trip to their studio in Tribeca, I was far too intimidated to return. This makes streaming the perfect solution! I can take my time learning the routines sans culty vibes. I have been doing the beginner and fundamental levels for the mat workouts and love them both.
I’ve never been more grateful for my Peloton bike than this week! Even if you don’t have a bike or treadmill at home, the Peloton app is a good one. They have thousands of workouts you can do without any equipment. I’ve been loving the yoga series, as well as the quick 10 minute ab workouts (Rebecca Kennedy and Cody Rigsby are the best trainers IMO).
I really like this channel because of the variety of workouts they provide. You can do virtual classes, dances, ab, or butt workouts, or select a workout that doesn't require any equipment so you are able to switch things up depending on your mood. I also like ending with Melissa Wood Health’s guided meditations or flows.
Boho Beautiful offers yoga and mat workouts to do at home on YouTube. This account was created by a cute couple who film their workouts in beautiful places. The video titles are really accurate and make it easy to decide which one to do.
Modo Yoga is a classic heated yoga spot in the West Village. I have been missing the feeling of being in a class with a live instructor. Modo has started streaming classes daily on IGLive. No two classes are alike and you can flow with 300+ other New Yorkers like nothing has changed. Schedules are posted on their Instagram grid.
You've no doubt seen Megan Roup's cult-favorite workout routines all over Instagram, and now you can stream them directly from home. A dance cardio class with Megan is the most fun you'll ever have in a workout–and you'll feel the results the next day! Subscriptions cost as low as $.33 per day, and you can get a 14-day free trial of the Sculpt Society app now.
My usual routine involves going to workout classes, and obé fitness brings the entire in-person class experience home. You can choose from a wide range of on-demand and live classes to stream on your computer or through the phone app. The classes include yoga, sculpt, dance, HIIT, stretching, and even meditations, and they're each led by an amazing instructor. Plus, there's an entire "express" section of shorter class options for when you're in a time crunch. obé fitness has something for everyone!
Melissa Wood-Tepperberg launched an app that holds a ton of her workout videos, some as short as 14 minutes! It always comes in handy when I’m too lazy to get myself to an in-person class. Her voice is extremely soothing and she explains everything very clearly along the way. There are workouts you can do with and without weights and an added bonus to the app is the guided meditation section!
Rumble is my favorite workout class to go to! They’ve recently started saving 45 minute HIIT workouts to their IGTV so you can follow along at home, and they also have a daily workout posted on Instagram live for their followers.
