Exercise on a budget

I have to admit that I am not a gym membership person. While I do enjoy working out on an elliptical or other equipment, I can never bring myself to pay that much money to go somewhere to exercise. Also, I am not a cute person when I exercise. I don’t wear attractive or expensive workout gear, and I sweat like a horse. I don’t want to be around anyone. Plus running on the street is free, which is much more in line with my budgetary constraints.

However, I realize not everyone likes to walk or run outside nor is the weather always conducive to outdoor exercise. (I’m currently looking at about 3 inches of snow on the ground. Not going running in that.) But buying workout videos can get pricey, and I know I get bored watching the same videos over and over.

My solution? Youtube. You wouldn’t believe the number of workout videos available online for free. Yes, for free. I’m sharing here my playlist of videos I work from. These vary in intensity quite a bit. However, I focus on videos about 20-30ish minutes long that include a warm-up. While I don’t expect any of you to just copy this list, I hope you use it as a reference for where to find other workout videos online. If you prefer workouts that are shorter, longer, more intense, more cardio, less cardio, etc., look up the channels for some of the providers on my list. They have tons of videos to choose from.


Happy indoor exercising!
