Top 5 YouTube Fitness Channels you need right now
By Sierra Miller
As a college student, sometimes it’s hard to find time to get yourself to the gym. With homework, a job, an internship, during a period of quarantine, or whatever you have going on, sometimes your workouts get pushed to the back burner. Gym memberships aren’t always the cheapest either.
The fitness industry has expanded wildly over the last few years with Instagram, YouTube, and even MIRROR, an electronic mirror that guides you through workouts. With YouTube fitness accounts, you don’t have to pay for a membership, leave your house, and sometimes you don’t even need any equipment. Fitness accounts cover all different types of workouts: HIIT (high intensity interval training), yoga, body-weight workouts, low-intensity and high-intensity, and specific target areas. Fitness videos are also great if you’re short on time. Videos can range from 5 minutes to an hour.
Videos on FitnessBlender range from 1000 calorie HIIT workouts, kickboxing, pilates, target areas, food ideas, and their own fitness stories and experiences. All workouts range from 5 minutes to over an hour.
