Let’s face it, there is a TON of content surfacing on the socials. From the IGTVs to the IGLives to YouTube videos, there is so much to watch and listen to that you almost have to think and filter through where you want to devote your time. However, I’m loving all the interesting workouts on Instagram and Youtube. Obviously with all the gyms and studios being closed, so many different kinds of workouts are surfacing online, and the best part is for the most part all you need is Internet access and an Instagram account AND they is no extra charge.
Every week, I devote one day of my workout week to explore something on Instagram or Youtube, and I’ve come across some fantastic workouts that are very easy to do at home. I don’t watch the IGLives-mostly because they don’t work with my schedule, but I do play around with the IGTVs or YouTube videos. So here are a few accounts I’ve discovered that you guys can definitely use!
Sweaty Betty-My favorite so far. This UK-based athletic wear brand is uploading IGTVs almost daily with short videos on how to perfect certain moves ,to healthy recipes that are easy to follow, to full workouts ranging for 10-30 minutes. I’ve personally done the Yoga Flow, Barre, and Pilates and oh man I felt it every single time.
Real Pilates-A Dubai-based Pilates studio with a range of Pilates and yoga workouts ranging from 10-60 minutes, depending on your time preference! I even saw a video of pre-natal pilates on there.
Namrata Purohit–A celebrity Fitness trainer in Mumbai, India. Her IGTVs are less than 5 minutes, where she does very specific movements using basic props that are available in every home. Although her videos are not full workouts, they can easily be added to existing workouts or combined altogether.
Yasmin Karachiwala-A celebrity Pilates Instructor in Mumbai, India. Her videos are short as well, but she uses her IGTVs to explain how we can easily do small exercises within our sedentary lifestyle-such as exercises while you’re on your bed or the couch. She’s ensuring you don’t become a couch potato while sitting on the couch!
