Best Apps and Websites for Free Home Workouts

home workout


Gyms are closed and we're beginning to master social distancing. Some of us now have restrictions on going outside. Parks and beaches are closing, yet you should still continue exercising. Thankfully, there's an app (and a livestream!) for that.

Peloton 

You probably know Peloton because of its home cycling or treadmill workouts, but did you know the app has an extensive library of strength workouts (bodyweight and with weights), yoga, meditation, stretching, bootcamp, walking, outdoor running and other cardio, too?

Right now you can get a 90-day FREE subscription to the app and all the workouts. No credit card needed. 

Orange Theory 

With home based workouts available at home or through its website, Orange Theory is offering everyone the chance to get into the Orange Zone for free during these strange times.

FitOn

FitOn has full workouts like HIIT and strength on demand on the app. In addition to Danielle's workouts, there's full list of kid-friendly workouts, cardio, strength, yoga and more. There's something for everyone, and it's always free.

Nike

You might have heard of or used the Nike running app for instructor-led workouts. But did you know there's more to the app than running? The library of workouts contains everything from bodyweight strength sessions to yoga. In addition, there's also info on meditation, nutrition and sleep. Nike's dropped the fee on its premium service during the global pandemic.

Daily Burn

Daily Burn is unique in that it picks out workouts for you based on a short survey you fill out when you sign up for the live streaming workouts. You get a schedule of workout videos and nutrition plans. Because of COVID-19, Daily Burn is offering a 60-day free trial for new users.

Core Power Yoga

Craving some power yoga? Core Power Yoga On Demand is offering free classes while its studios are closed. And it's not just for members. Classes range from 30 to 60 minutes with a different focus for each class. Currently, 16 classes are available with more added daily.

ClassPass

Right now ClassPass is offering unlimited free access to 2,000 on-demand classes to everyone--not just current members. If you want to take a live class, you do have to pay a fee, but ClassPass is giving 100% of the proceeds to the studios.

Planet Fitness

You may not think of Planet Fitness when it comes to group exercise classes because it has, for the most part, strictly cardio and weight equipment. With the closure of its gyms for the next few weeks, Planet Fitness has begun offering free home "work-ins" on its YouTube channel. The workouts are 30 minutes or less and some offer fun celebrity cameos.

CrossFit

Whether you are a committed member of a box or you are curious about what really goes down in a CrossFit class, now is your chance to check it out for free. The CrossFit website is providing daily at-home workouts that don't need any fancy equipment.

Lifetime Fitness

With all Lifetime Fitness gyms closed right now, it's offered up a variety of at-home options for members and non-members. You can choose from bodyweight or equipment-based strength workouts, yoga classes and more.

Headspace

Meditation may not seem like a workout, but it is--for your brain and well-being. Headspace is offering a collection called Weathering the Storm for free. It includes meditation, sleep and movement exercises to help during this crazy time. In addition, if you are a healthcare worker in the U.S., you can get Headspace Plus for free at this time.
