If you’re too shy to step into a (typically) loud, rambunctious gym, opt for home-based workouts with online pilates, yoga and HIIT classes instead. Below, find five fitness channels on YouTube which are perfect for beginners interested in kick starting their fitness journey.
Learn to train like a pro fighter with FightCamp on YouTube, where full-length workout videos comprise drills, technique prep and intense exercises. Pick up the basics of boxing with heavyweight boxer Mike Rashid as jabs, crosses and hooks are taught; or try a 10mins kickboxing workout with FightCamp trainer Aaron Swenson. Don’t miss out on helpful tutorials like How To Do A Round Kick and How To Wrap Your Hands For Boxing to gain more knowledge on fight training.
Incorporating proper stretches and relaxation exercises into your workout regimen is important, especially during this stay-home period. Try a 5mins morning stretch before you begin work proper, or join in a Back Pain Relief Stretches yoga session if you’ve got a stiff back from constantly sitting at a makeshift home office desk.
