Friday Favs - YouTube Fitness Channels

Happy Friday! I can't believe there's only 5 days left until Christmas!! Anyone else freaking out about how fast the year is going by? 

Since I've been trying to squeeze every penny out of my LivingSocial gym membership, I've gotten away from my cheap frugal roots and haven't shared as many free home workout resources as usual. To make up for it, I'm joining the Five Things Friday Link Up with five of my favorite YouTube fitness channels for great FREE! workouts.

1. BeFiT

The BeFiT channel from Lionsgate is new to me. With new workouts every single weekday from famous fitness trainers like Jillian Michaels, and great structured  30-day programs, I'm not sure how I could have missed it for so long!

2. Blogilates 

As I've said before, Cassey Ho of Blogilates fame has some of the best/most painful Pilates videos around (check out my review of her workout calendar here). And even though her workouts are super challenging, Cassey's energy makes working through the burn a little easier.

3. FitnessBlender

FitnessBlender is another resource that I know I've mentioned a lot on the blog, but I couldn't possible leave them off this list. The sheer volume and variety of high-quality workout videos on their YouTube channel (300+!) is amazing and I especially love that they have challenging full-length workout videos in addition to quicker options.

I first found Jessica Smith through her awesome (and free!) 10 pounds down workout series on my cable TV On Demand. I love that she releases new workout videos every week and that there are options for all fitness levels. Her walking exercise series is a great low impact option for beginners or people with injuries.

Karena and Katrina, certified personal trainers and makers of the extremely popular Tone It Up nutrition plan, offer workout videos, healthy eating recipes and regular social challenges on their YouTube channel. Their videos have a fun Cali vibe, are shot amid beautiful scenery, and I love that they have a lot of quick workouts that you can pair to make a full workout or squeeze in when you are pressed for time.

Q: What's your fav YouTube fitness channel? Any other favorite free workout resources?
