7 Amazing Online Workouts to Stream at Home

The one problem with working out from home is getting motivated to start. When you work out alone you’re the only one who cares if you finish.

Working out in a class or gym gives us a routine and support. You’re not working out alone, you’ve got workout buddies who’re there for the same reason. To get fit, get in shape, try out for Survivor (or Love Island) or just fit into the wedding dress.

But what if you’re motivated and you just don’t have the time or money to join a gym?

Maybe where you live there isn’t a convenient gym to drop into. We all know that convenience plays a huge part in how successful we are at keeping to our workout schedule!

One of the reasons I bought my house in TX was because it was 5 minutes from a great YMCA. Seriously. I spent many hours at that gym and it became a part of my routine because it was so close.

But what if you don’t have that option? What can you do to keep motivated, save money and get your butt in shape?
