Well, now it’s time to use YouTube as your personal trainer. The options are endless and fitness influencers have spent a lot of time generating content to help you on your fitness journey. We’ve found 5 of them to help you get started.
5 Of The Best Youtube Fitness Channels
Cassey Ho started her online fitness journey in 2009 when she posted her first video. Her unique approach to training made her an empire when it comes to female-focused workouts. There is a tonne of videos available on her profile and they’re usually equipment free, which means you can exercise at home without needing to invest in weights, although a yoga mat is recommended. We suggest starting with POP Pilates for Beginners.

Caleb Marshall started his online journey in 2014. He focuses primarily on aerobic dance workouts that get the blood pumping. It’s ideal if you’re looking to fit in a quick cardio session – regardless of your fitness level.

Leslie Sansone’s Walk at Home
Leslie’s videos can take you back to the 1980s with her cheerful deminer, impressive beats and synchronised movements. However, after making your way through the full 45-minute workout, you’ll realise that looks can be deceiving. She focuses on interval training and aims to keep her audience moving non-stop during the workout. Walk home requires no equipment and provides a wide range of options to accommodate any fitness level.
Tone It Up
Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott developed Tone It Up as a method of long-distance coaching. You can access basic features for free, however, more premium features such as nutrition plans and workout DVDs need to be purchased. YouTube features shorter videos consisting of workouts and recipes which can help you to jumpstart your fitness journey.
