Forget about your gym (it’s closed anyway) and get ready to get pumped up at home.
These videos could be your new gym kit. Whilst we’ve suddenly found ourselves on lockdown, self-quarantine, and maybe soon under a curfew in Bangkok, you might be sweating about how to stay fit. All you need at home is a good internet connection and a fair amount of space and then you’re sorted. No gym kit or equipment required.
All your favourite popular trainers have posted their fitness videos online for free so no matter how or where you’re self-isolating, you can sweat it out at home. We’ve rounded up some of the best workout videos that we thought would be convenient to do at home.

Australian personal trainer Kayla Itsines is best known for her SWEAT fitness app, which gives subscribers access to Kayla’s latest program, with workouts which promise to boost your fitness and get results in just 28 minutes. But, you don’t have to sign up for her app. If you head to Kayla’s YouTube channel you can put together your own 28-minute challenges using her many free workout videos, which show you how to do quick rounds of exercises using just a mat and perhaps a few things you already have on-hand at home, such as heavy water bottles instead of weights.
Kit Rich, who has trained the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Kesha, also has a selection of no-kit workouts on her YouTube channel, where she will take you through a series of effective but easy to do at-home exercises such as jump squats and ab workouts. There is no music, but that means you can set your own soundtrack at home.
Husband-and-wife team Daniel and Kelli are the qualified personal trainers who run FitnessBlender, a YouTube fitness channel with a ton of videos to suit every level. While they do have a lot of strength training videos that use weights, there are so many to choose from in their back catalogue it’s easy to find videos that don’t require any equipment except a mat, and use only your own body weight. And, they’re all designed to be done in the space of home even when we’re not facing a lockdown.
Yoga with Adriene
Adriene Mishler’s videos on her Yoga with Adriene YouTube channel will not only help you stretch out those legs (and everywhere else!) without going outside, but she’ll also help you tackle your mental health too — and all you’ll need is a mat. Choose from energetic yoga flows, those which will help you calm any coronavirus-related anxiety, or you could even set yourself the challenge of completing Adriene’s latest 30-day yoga program, appropriately entitled, “Home.”
