My Top 5 Workout Videos


YouTube is a truly wonderful tool. Obviously for the world of beauty, but when I rake through my history on it (a task which makes me slightly concerned at the amount of time I spend on there and cat related videos I watch), fitness videos come a close second. There’s just something satisfying about working out for free, with your own equipment, from the comfort of your front room, yet with the guidance of a professional all thanks to the medium that is YouTube. For the past few months I’ve supplemented my running training a few mornings a week with an online conducted routine and below are five of my favourites. All you need is a mat for most and dumbbells, a kettle ball and two towels for some of the others. Easy peasy, though the workouts are maybe not so…

Yoga with Adrienne’s ‘Yoga for Weight Loss: Abs & Arms – my favourite yoga video that I’ve found and of course it helps that Adrienne is an absolute babe. Each workout is explained and demoed in an easy-to-follow way with modifications depending on whether you’re a beginner or more advanced. My arms and abs feel like they’ve been to work after this one.

Fitness Blender’s ‘Tank Top Arms Workout – being only eight minutes long this is one I like to slap on to the end of another routine if I feel like my arms haven’t been doing much. It’s quite a nice one to go back to and measureΒ your progress with as when I first started I couldn’t do the full 1 minute for each exercise (some I still can’t, some I can).

Tone it Up’s ‘KettleToning – A mix of kettle ball work, yoga and stretching, I wasn’t expecting this one to burn as much as it did but the calming music and the nice background do make you feel chilled while you’re doing it and it’s always fun to get to grips with a new piece of equipment.

POPSUGAR Fitness’ ‘30 Minute Fat Frying Bikini Body Workout – this is one of the most enjoyable/hardest of the routines as it incorporates doing some of the moves on a slippery surface with towels under your hands or feet to add an extra level of required balance. Just make sure the tiled section of your kitchen floor is larger than mine or you will end up head butting the fridge.

Blogilates’ ‘POP Pilates for Beginners Total Body Workout – a great starting point for the rest of Casey’s videos. She talks through correct stance, posture and the beginner’s moves of her POP pilates routines. Be warned – this one BURNS your abs. Laughing the next day will be painful.

    I’ve always loved blogilates workouts but it’s great to find some new ones on YouTube. I’m looking forward to trying one of the yoga sessions with Adrienne.

    It’s not a full day work out routine but Shameless Maya’s butt workout is another great short one that I like to add on to others as well!

  • I am too nervous to exercise in public so love a good youtube workout, yoga with Adrienne is one of my favourites, I also love a good Jillian Michael’s circuit. Can’t wait ti try out your other recommendations

  • They all sound great! x


  • I need to try the Adrienne’s one πŸ™‚

    emily xx

  • I’m a huge fan of the kettle toning videos! πŸ™‚

  • Blogilates is amazing!

  • Aboslutely love Blogilates, i always find myself back there when im in need of a quick pick me up. Plus giving up and sweating on my bedroom floor is a lot less embarrassing than at the gym..

  • I love the Popsugar one! It’s so bloody hard at times but you feel amazing once you’ve done it!I’ve been alternating between this and running most mornings for the past few weeks. Y’know, so I can look nice in my Christmas dress and eat all the mince pies.

  • Don’t think I’ll be quite rushing out and trying these, like I do with your top 5 lipsticks! πŸ˜‰ x


  • Emma

    This is such a useful post! Especially when you don’t have a lot of time and it’s too dark to go running in the winter!

  • Eva

    You should try the Fitness Blender’s 8 weeks weight loss program!! I am on week 8 and I can really tell a difference! The first days I couldn’t even complete all these workouts and I wasn’t in such a bad shape. I didn’t want to lose weight, I wanted to have a strong, toned body and to lose fat and oh my god I can’t believe how fit I look now, after only two months! I used to use their videos randomly but the scheduled ones in this program are so easier to use, no need for searching through their site to decide which one you should which day!

  • Mandy Bajwa

    I need to get back into exercising, definitely doing to check these out!

  • Viviana

    Cassey is amazing! I am a proud popster! She can change lives!

  • Blogilates is amazing, but I love a good ol’ zumba video too. They’re great to just laugh at yourself whilst working out. Lovely post though, really helpful x

  • alice bea

    Will definitely be giving these a go!

  • I love the Blogilates one! x

  • thanks for sharing these, i’m always interested in finding good work out videos!

  • jo

    this is very cool! πŸ™‚

  • I love the random fitness video thrown in.My life saver after giving birth was Bikini Body Mommy 90 Days challenge, because it is short, sweet and requires no fitness to start with. After those 90 days I was ready to restart my pre-pregnancy routine.
