2. YouTube workouts:
YouTube is packed to the brim with workouts. Best of all, they're free. And if you have a smart TV you can basically create your own home gym by loading the video onto your living room screen.
Simply choose a video that suits your fitness level, desired workout, or equipment availability and go for gold.
