8 YouTube Accounts to Follow
So You Can Work Out
By Tim Henares
Is that gym membership you got last January 1 languishing as early as now? Do you want to get back on track, but don’t want to spend a small fortune just to get fit? Well, with a bit of persistence, and some willingness to follow instructions, we have just the solution for you!
Here are 8 video channels to subscribe to when you need your exercise fix and variety.
8. Mahalo Dance Central
Who: An avid fan of Dance Central, dancing along to the songs in the hit series.
Workout Regimen: Dance Central game videos.
Main Hook: Now, you can dance to the tune of some of the best calorie-burning songs the Dance Central franchise has to offer without buying a gaming console.
Main Hurdle: You need to memorize the steps to some extent, so you know how to follow what’s happening onscreen. Not recommended for first-timers with no plans of repeating songs.
7. Billy Blanks
Who: Billy Blanks is the guy who came up with TaeBo. He’s been at it for decades, and even in his ‘60s, is still hella fit.
Workout Regimen: Mostly cardio, martial arts-based moves designed to make you sweat.
Main Hook: While it’s not exactly a realistic self-defense course, TaeBo is a great way to stay fit, as Billy Blanks has managed to combine various martial arts moves into a comprehensive exercise program with a lot of variety.
Main Hurdle: The music is generic, and the exercises might seem too old-school. Remember, he’s been doing TaeBo since the late ‘80s.
6. Millionaire Hoy
Who: Millionaire Hoy is a fitness enthusiast who relies on Patreon to produce his videos.
Workout Regimen: High Impact Training: powerful, calorie-burning bursts of exercise that normally last only up to 30 minutes.
Main Hook: 500 calories burned in 30 minutes? Yes, please.
Main Hurdle: Considering how many “modified” exercises he offers per program, it’s clear that his material is very challenging, especially since a lot of them are pushup variations.
5. Jordan Yeoh
Who: A fitness enthusiast with a huge following.
Workout Regimen: High Impact Training.
Main Hook: Same as Millionaire Hoy, but with a hot Asian dude (as opposed to an average Asian dude in #8).
Main Hurdle: He’s distractingly gorgeous, and the author of this list is a straight guy.
4. Fitness Blender
Who: An organization giving fitness tips meant for all skill levels.
Workout Regimen: A wide variety of different exercises, stretches, and the like.
Main Hook: Very beginner-friendly.
Main Hurdle: Very clinical delivery. Might strike other people as boring.
3. Shani McGraham
Who: A Zumba expert.
Workout Regimen: Zumba dancing to pop songs.
Main Hook: All the fun of Zumba minus having to go to the gym.
Main Hurdle: Probably the channel with the least production values on this list.
2. Sneak Punch
Who: Boxing experts who translate their exercises for beginners.
Workout Regimen: Boxing-related exercises that burn a lot of calories by default. Best with a sauna suit.
Main Hook: Boxing is a very intense workout, even when designed with self-defense in mind.
Main Hurdle: Might require some dumbbells or gloves in some exercises.
1. The Fitness Marshall
Who: Dance choreographer turned fitness enthusiast.
Workout Regimen: Dancing along to pop songs with very exercise-friendly steps.
Main Hook: Great explanations when it comes to explaining the steps. Very easy to follow.
Main Hurdle: He makes even the most ridiculous dance step look great. You won’t look nearly as good doing the same thing.
