I am on a roll with New Year’s resolution #1 and feel very happy about. How are your resolutions going?

What helps is that we have a fully equipped fitness room in our apartment building, which I have found out is quite common here. Also, as someone who gets bored easily doing the same fitness routines over and over, I like to switch things up every once in a while.

I thought it might be interesting to share some of my favourite videos if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration yourself. There are SO SO MANY videos available everywhere but I’ve limited it to my five favourite videos, covering a wild mix of strength, yoga and HIIT training. Let me know if you already knew them or if you have others that you recommend.

Why not try one of those videos tonight after work? Byeeee!

Yoga with Adriene: Of course, I had to include Adriene which you’ll know by now, if you’ve read my fan letter last week. I am currently loving her ‘Yoga Revolution’ series, as it is the perfect quick but effective work out to do at home. All you need is a floor, not even a mat (even though that is way nicer of course). Just trying to get across that it really doesn’t take any preparation to get started nor any special requirement. Just do it!

HIIT with Carly Rowena: I’m going to be honest, High Intensity Interval Training Routines are great and terrible all in one. They are great because you get your sweat in quick routines. They are terrible because they are cruel. The nicest thing about them are actually the 30 second rests in between. Look out for those! Other than that you can do most of them at home. She also has great other videos on her channel, give them a look.

Popsugar Fitness: I find this channel’s name quite weird but besides that the content is good. The only thing you’ll need for the video below are free weights. There are a lot of full on  full-length workouts, sorted by time and type. Anything from dance workouts to tutorials to workouts designed to combat stress.

Blogilates: Again, I don’t know why lots of the workout channels have rather weird names (and often terrible music), still this one is a good, full-body and Pilates-inspired workout.

Fitness Blender: Those aren’t particularly funny or nice to look at but boy, are they effective and SUPERLONG. Those might be the longest full-length videos I’ve found around.
