Online Workout Programs to Help You Reach Your Goals and Keep Fit

Nowhere has seen such an explosion of interest in 2020 than online fitness. Self-improvement is tailor made for the screen-to-home experience, as the industry attempts to shape itself to the demands of ever busy people (many of whom work from home). Maybe nothing beats getting a sweat on in a studio, but with apps and sites offering bespoke classes in all kinds of activities and for all levels, the internet truly offers the next best thing. 

Some would argue that – without having to travel to get there and back, or fail miserably in front of a class of iron men and women, it’s actually a kinder place to get better. Here’s our list of the best online programs.

Tone It Up Fitness App

With a site that blends the best of community led motivational programs with a lighter, magazine-like feel, Tone It Up offers fitness programs, accountability, nutrition and live classes at a price that won’t make you sweat. Designed for women by fitness trainers Katrina Scott Karena Dawn, the brand also stocks its own line of nutrition powders and shakes to assure that – wherever you are on the journey – you’re staying the course.

All Out Studio

Brought to you from the creators of Men’s Health and Women’s Health, All Out looks, from the off, like it means serious business. Think of the kind of weight and sculpt-focused activities that occupy the pages of the aforementioned magazines and you’re on the right track, but there’s plenty more including running sessions, yoga and nutritional videos. The price – for a yearly membership – is super low, but you’ll probably be purchasing dumbbells and rope too.

SWEAT

The Sweat With Kayla movement exploded across Instagram, and if you've yet to join Itsines' army, just mulling over a few of her photos and videos (she even did her regular workouts while almost 9 months pregnant!) will get you on board. We're not about sugarcoating: Her programs are tough, but you're going to love them anyway. Designed for women of all shapes and sizes and for all levels of fitness, the workout programs range from post-pregnancy to powerbuilding, and can be done at home or the actual gym! The app also provides users with weekly clean-eating meal plans and shopping lists.

CorePower Yoga

Access a collection of online classes for all yoga abilities through CorePower Yoga's Yoga On Demand program. New classes will be added every week, and users can access the entire library for free. If you're new to CorePower, it's designed as a high-intensity yoga class with targeted core exercises throughout the workout. Give a class a try to take your yoga practice up a notch.

Alo Moves Multi-Class Series

Find the yoga class that's right for you. Alo Moves, a platform developed by trendy activewear brand Alo Yoga, makes choosing your class a totally chill experience. You can easily sort through different class lengths (from 15 minutes to 60 minutes) or choose from a variety of experience levels, from beginner to advanced. You can even select intensity levels no matter your experience, so you can still push your limits as a beginner or take it easy on a rest day as a seasoned yogi.

Body By Simone TV

You can dance away your stress on a literal trampoline with Body By Simone's high energy, high-intensity dance cardio mixed with a strength-training workout. The quick, 10-to-20 minute program uses your body weight in addition to lightweight resistance to develop long, lean muscles. The technique grew out of creator Simone De La Rue's classical ballet and Broadway background, and has taken flight since her launch in 2010. Now with a subscription, you can stream it online to any device, including your TV.

Caravan Wellness

Looking for a more holistic approach, but can't afford a personal trainer, nutritionist, and life coach? Check out Caravan Wellness, a curated fitness destination with a wide range of both unlimited live and on-demand classes and short tips (such as a quick how-to on mindful eating or gut health), ranging from yoga and meditation to Pilates and life coaching that you can watch anywhere. You can even talk about goals, technique, and progress on your time with their pro teachers and coaches through the built-in messaging system.
