Now I don’t know about you, but I happen to enjoy working out to exercise videos.
I think they’re incredibly useful and can add a lot of variety to your fitness routine…as long as they are being demonstrated by fitness professionals who explain the exercises clearly and use proper form.
Today I’m going to share some of my favorite workout videos with you.
The good news is that they will range in length and intensity so that you can follow along regardless of your schedule or your level of fitness.
Five Motivating Workout Videos To Get You Moving
1 – Leslie Sansone’s Walk Indoors – Intervals
The reason is because I find her workouts to be not only motivating, but functional, inspiring and fit for all exercisers. Her style is friendly, upbeat, encouraging and non-intimidating.
She incorporates several additional moves in the workout so that you’re not only getting the benefits of the walk, but you’re also teaching your body to maintain a strong posture while developing coordination as well.
This particular walk at home workout includes intervals, however, if you are new to exercise, you can always walk at your own pace until you are ready to progress to something more challenging.
This video can be used as its own workout, or as a warm up to some of the other videos in this post.
Listen to your body and start at the pace that matches your level of fitness and work your way up from there.
2 – Tony Horton’s 10 Minute Trainer Core Workout
I happen to love the entire 10 Minute Trainer workout program, so I guess it isn’t a surprise that I would feel inspired to share one of the workouts in this post.
In this video, you’ll get a 10 minute core workout that will REALLY challenge you. It’s short and intense – and can be used in conjunction with other workouts or on its own.
Each exercise is only 30 seconds long and can be modified if necessary.
Check it out.
3 – 10-Minute Travel Resistance Band Workout | Full-Body Workout | Class FitSugar
This is an excellent quick workout that includes low impact exercises and minimal equipment.
You’ll need a mat and a bowtie band. If you don’t have a bowtie band, no worries. A regular resistance band will work.
This video includes a full body exercise program that is perfect if you’re traveling, or if you simply want to do a short workout that will leave you feeling pumped and energized.
Now, while I happen to like this video, I did notice that a warm up wasn’t included.
I always recommend a 5-10 minute warm up to get the muscles loosened up and the heart rate ready for the stress of exercise before engaging in a fitness program.
You can also use the Walk at Home video above as your warm up and finish it off with the 10 Minute Trainer core video for a longer workout session if you so desire.
4 – How To Stretch for Beginners, Safe Stretches for Full Body Yoga, Back & Leg Pain Relief, Sciatica
I felt that this would make a useful addition to this post because I know that many of you out there suffer from back, leg and sciatica pain.
Anything that works to promote flexibility and strength in a slow and controlled manner will help in regard to other types of workouts, in addition to making life easier in general.
This video incorporates a gentle routine that gradually allows your body to adapt to new poses and stretches, which will be incredibly helpful for when it’s time to take your yoga practice (or any other exercise program) up a notch.
Yoga offers fantastic health benefits, but just like any other form of fitness, it’s a good idea to start slow and work your way up to a more intense program only after you have mastered form and conditioned yourself properly to handle a bigger challenge.
This video will help you to do just that, and it may also help to alleviate tight muscles and joints – which will come in handy when engaging in any other form of fitness.
Listen to your body and do not force any stretches. Modify if necessary and allow yourself to adapt to the poses as needed.
5 – Rocky Training Motivation
I couldn’t end a post about workout inspiration without including the most inspirational video of all.
Now I don’t know about you, but I am HUGE fan of the Rocky series, and I love the training scenes. The combination of the music, determination and heart fueling these workouts are what makes them so motivating…and AMAZING.
So if you need something to help get you moving, I suggest watching this video.
Ideas and Inspiration Are Everywhere
I know how challenging it can be to stay motivated to exercise. This is why I find videos to be so useful.
Watching people work out makes me want to get moving, and I hope it does the same for you on the days you aren’t feeling naturally enthusiastic about doing so.
I also find it helpful to see other people doing exercises that I haven’t thought of, which keeps things exciting, in addition to keeping the body guessing.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the ones I have shared with you today.
Are there any workout videos you have found to be inspiring?
