These 30-Minute Online Workouts are Free and Easy to Do

There’s no reason to skip your workout if you have an internet connection. YouTube has thousands of free workouts that you can do online, and most of them take less than 30 minutes.

Which one is best for you? And how can you decide which one to use? These are the views of a few personal trainers about YouTube’s benefits for those who want to increase strength, burn calories and get lean in just 30 minutes.

You don’t have to hustle to make it to the gym

Jessica Cifelli is a personal trainer certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and based in Wyckoff. She says that while many people love group classes, it can be difficult to fit them into busy schedules.

“Time is one our limiting factors when we exercise… especially for young mothers and working parents and even college students,” states Pete McCall an ACE-certified exercise physiologist and health coach for the American Council on Exercise. McCall lives in San Diego.

He adds that the number-two reason people use these programs is probably that they are financially viable. Some fitness programs offer subscriptions while others are pay-as-you-go. This means that you don’t need to commit to a gym or contract and can cancel at any time.

But is the trainer who inspires you legitimate?

Cifelli advises that you ensure that the person giving exercise advice has been certified by an accredited organization.

McCall, the spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise, stated that “I would recommend you look for someone who is certified by that organization.” “Whether they are a personal trainer or a group instructor, having the ACE certification means that an instructor is able to create safe and effective exercises for healthy adults. I worry about the videos that are being posted on YouTube and Instagram. Just because someone appears fit does not mean that they know how to create a safe program.

Other respected organizations include:

  • The American College of Sports Medicine
  • International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA).
  • The National Academy of Sports Medicine, (NASM).
  • The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

Here’s some information on eight YouTube fitness stars that will help you get in shape fast, and free of charge if you feel like you need to quit the gym.

She also has HIIT (high-intensity interval training) for beginners sessions. Bonus: Many of Smith’s videos feature Peanut, her adorable French bulldog. Peanut usually lies on Smith’s mat while she works out, and looks up with a smile that says “Are we done yet?”
