As you may know from my recent posts or instagram, lately I have been backing off a bit from running and focusing on trying out some different types of workouts. I don’t have a gym membership so all of my workouts need to take place at home. I thought I would share some of the types of workouts I have been doing with links to specific websites or DVDs.
Barre3 Online Workouts: These workouts pull from barre, dance, and yoga. The site offers a lot of variety and has membership options for 1 month, 6 months, or a year. I really liked the filters that allowed me to find the exact type of class I was looking for. (I used this site for about 6 months last year.)
Pure Barre DVDs/Online Videos: I have the Mile High Series 1 and 2 videos. I also just subscribed to 1 year of access to flex series (which has six 10 minute workouts) thanks to Meredith’s recommendation. We were E-mailing this week about how challenging these short videos are!
Do Yoga With me: has lots of free online videos for all different levels
My Free Yoga: I’ve only done 1 video from this website but there seems to be quite a few good options available
Fightmaster Yoga on YouTube: I first heard about Lesley Fightmaster from Michele and would have to agree that she leads some great classes. Typically I struggle with finding good yoga classes on YouTube but so far I have found that with Lesley Fightmaster you can’t go wrong.
Reflexion Yoga: This site offers a 30 day free trail and then some different membership options.
The Yoga Collective: There are a few free classes available on this site as well as a 15 day free trial, and then monthly/annually membership options.
Yoga Home Practice Guide: A great list of free yoga online yoga videos with descriptions
Pilates for Runners DVD: I have had this DVD for a few years and it burns every time I do it. I especially have a love/hate relationship with the side-lying leg lifts
Pilatesology: I signed up for a 10 day free trail of this site and I have only used it once. I had some technically difficulties when I tried to use it again but I’m not sure if it was because of the site or because of my old/slow iPad.
The Benefits of Pilates for Runners: Great info about pilates with some other links to check out
Pilates for Runners: Quick StartL Includes a pilates-inspired ab workout
Pinterest Workouts: When in doubt, I log onto Pinterest and easily find whatever kind of workout I am looking for. I created a board of “strength workouts” as a place to save workouts I found online and want to try.
