You can find some of the best workout videos on YouTube for free no matter what kind of workout you like to do: zumba, yoga, dance, kickboxing, whatever! Don’t believe me? Check out this list of 15 great YouTube workout videos and see if you don’t find a video that you’ll be putting in heavy rotation for your next at home workout.

Lately I’ve been loving how I can jazz up my workout at home with all these great YouTube workout videos I’ve been finding. I can just find a great video and one minute later, I’m trying out a new exercise routine.

\And these aren’t cheap, crappy videos either. These YouTube workout videos are professional videos that rival anything you’d find on a DVD (does anyone still use those?) or streaming service.

Here are some of the ones I’ve been using – and loving!

Best YouTube Workout Videos Specifically for Women Over 50

30 Minute LOW IMPACT Walking with Weights Workout for Women over 50 with Paula B

I’m not sure how Paula B has managed to fly under my radar for so long but about a month ago she started popping up in my Pinterest feed every day and so I had to check her out. Obviously, I’ve been under a rock somewhere. Paula has over 700 videos just for the over 50 woman on YouTube and a community of women who just love her. I promise that after you do this workout, you’ll be part of that community.

Best 20 Minutes of Yoga to Relax with on YouTube

Yoga For Complete Beginners with Yoga With Adriene

I don’t know why anyone would ever need to subscribe to a yoga streaming service or buy a DVD (do people still do that?) when we have Yoga with Adriene. Soothing, helpful, and extremely compassionate to beginners, Adriene guides you through the yoga session so smoothly, you’ll actually lose track of time. You’re sure to find a video you like from her hundreds of selections, but if you’re a true yoga beginner like me, you’ll like this video. Adriene explains every move and walks you through the whole workout. You’ll be an expert by the time the video ends!

Best High Intensity Interval Training Workouts on YouTube

20 Minute High Intensity Interval Training Workout

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts can blast a ton of calories in a very short time and really help you lose fat. This video from FitnessBlender is a good 20-minute HIIT workout. You’ll need to provide your own music because there’s no music on this track but I prefer that to working out along with music I don’t really like. (Pro tip: Turn off the sound, on the video, blast the music, and just follow along with what he’s doing on screen.) An on-screen calorie counter lets you know how many calories you’re burning so you’ll be motivated to finish when the going gets hard.

Hip Hop Tabata Workout

This workout is challenging and fun. After a 5-minute warm up, Keaira LaShae breaks down each set of moves into 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off with a 30-second break after each set. This is really high-intensity but you can modify the cool hip-hop dance moves to be right for you.

If you’ve got a kettlebell, you can use it to ramp up those high-intensity interval workouts. Penny take you through 10 exercises that she repeats 3 times. Her timer in the corner shows you both what you’re currently doing and what’s coming up so you can prepare yourself for (or dread) what’s next.
