Free Exercise Videos Online

Exercise tv's bootcamp with Kendell HoganI enjoy going to group classes at the gym or rec centre, but sometimes I’d rather exercise at home. Try some of these out and save your favourites to come back to again and again.


There are thousands of instructional videos on YouTube, of various quality.

BeFit has HIIT, yoga, pregnancy workouts and more.

Search for “Exercise TV” to find exercises led by personal trainers. They used to be on something called the Exercise TV channel.

The host of YogaMazing, Chaz, creates truly interactive yoga shows. He invites viewers to submit requests  and tapes them.

Yoga Yak

YogaYak has over a dozen free yoga classes, which range from 30 to 60  minutes. I often suffer from stress-induced shoulder and back pain, and so I love Michael Riel’s Yoga for Neck and Shoulder Pain. Diane Jacobs’ Hatha Yoga Flow 2 is great for spinal elongation.

Yoga Today

Yoga Today offers a free video every week. You have to register to see it, but the sign-up process is quick and painless. Their videos are set in beautiful outdoor locations, and the teachers often offer some words of wisdom. Their classes are often challenging and range from 50 to 60 minutes.

Hopefully these videos inspire you to exercise.  I’m sure your body will thank you.
