VCU RamStrong Well-being blog

Giving VCU employees the wellness resources they need to be healthy both on and off campus

We all try to live an active lifestyle—whether that’s going to the gym a few times a week, flowing through a yoga class, or trekking around in the great outdoors. But sometimes we’re too short on time (or, let’s be real, motivation) to head into a crowded workout studio or expose ourselves to the hot summer sun. Lucky for us, there are other options. Instead of neglecting our workout (and the mood-boosting benefits that come from it), we schedule ourselves a little one-on-one workout time with YouTube.

The workouts are time-flexible, accessible, and expert-led. In other words, it’s basically a treasure trove of fitness.

A quick search unearths everything from yoga to Pilates to HIIT training routines; whatever type of sweat session you prefer, YouTube likely has it. That’s why we decided to put together a list of our favorite online fitness channels just to help you narrow your search a little bit. Keep reading here to see the YouTube fitness gurus we can always count on for increasing our heart rate and improving our headspace.
