Not sure where to start? There’s some fantastic online coaches that provide workouts, fitness advice and motivation. You can follow their workouts from home or just about anywhere. Best of all – their online videos are free!
Having some guidance can make a difference. All these channels I have followed and seen results. If you’re not sure about the different types of workouts (e.g. HIIT) refer to my post: How to lose weight at home: top 3 workout strategies
Here are some of the best online workout videos/channels I discovered:
HEART AND SOUL Fitness with Coach Kozak and wife Claudia. This husband and wife team works out with you. Coach Kozak does the advanced moves while Claudia shows basic modifications. It’s great having the two options; you can build up from beginner to advanced, or you can switch between maneuvers depending on your fitness.
Coach Kozak encourages you to own your workout and his motivation is contagious. He has over 15-years-experience in the industry and offers thousands of workouts.
They have free workout/meal plans, a workout app and a solid fb community – become part of the HASfit tribe!
