What were we doing before YouTube? Watching music channels, buying non-essential gym equipment? With post-scoliosis surgeries and a bad shoulder, YouTube workouts have helped me get in shape and stay motivated. I can exercise on my own schedule, in my own comfort, and enjoy a variety of workouts – for free! Scroll down for my top favourite YouTube workouts (no equipment necessary):
Best yoga instructor: Yoga With Adriene

Her popularity stems from her friendly approach. She welcomes all levels of experience to her practice, offering alternatives to anyone who may struggle doing certain poses. There’s a yoga class for every type of feeling and mood: Depression, anxiety, stress, chronic pain…
