With all the hoopla surrounding COVID-19, you’d be forgiven for skipping the gym. But that’s no excuse for slacking on your New Year’s resolution to get in shape! With the best online workout programs, you’ll be able to get your sweat on without ever leaving the house. We’ve rounded up eight that you’ll want to put on your radar, stat. 

How to Start Streaming Workouts

First thing’s first: You’ll need to choose a streaming workout subscription service plan that’s right for you. There are several different things to consider when selecting one of the many options available. Keep reading for a few helpful tips.

Consider your workout habits: Sure, it’s nice that you’ve thought about taking up cycling after watching those countless exercise commercials, but if you’re someone who despises cardio, it might not be the best choice for you. After all, as a 2014 study published in BMC Public Health proved, participants who tried high-intensity functional training were more likely to stick with it if they enjoyed it. With streaming subscriptions running the gamut from yoga and pilates to insanity training and dance, there’s sure to be a workout that appeals to you. 

Consider your setup: In addition to your passions, you’ll want to take your streaming setup into account when determining which plan you want. A service that’s only accessible via a streaming stick ($49.99, Amazon), for instance, won’t do you any good if you don’t happen to have one. Other plans may require exercise machines or workout accessories that you’ll need to have on hand ahead of time, so make sure to research your plan of choice before committing. 

Consider your budget: While it’s true that some subscription plans, particularly those that require equipment, such as an exercise bike or an elliptical, will cost you a pretty penny, your budget shouldn’t keep you from your goals. We found plans for as low as $6.99 per month — that’s cheaper than your monthly Netflix or Amazon Prime bills, which ring in at $8.99 per month or more and $12.99 per month, respectively!
