14 Free Workouts For Every Body – No Equipment Needed

The coronavirus has drastically changed our daily habits, including our exercise routines. We’ve become so accustomed to having access to gyms with a whole variety of fun toys to throw around. Now, many of us are under shelter-in-place orders and we have to adjust our workouts for being inside with no equipment.

To curate this list of the best free workouts you can do from anywhere, we watched and tried many, many videos. We looked for a variety of beginner- to intermediate-level routines that meet you where you are in your fitness journey. They also vary in length, so you can squeeze in a quick workout between meetings or have a leisurely hour-long session. Some are strictly cardio, and others supplement your weightlifting routine.

To clear your mind before getting sweaty, you can add meditation to your routine. With added focus during your workout, you’ll get the most out of your time. Sah D’Simone did an anxiety-relieving meditation, if you have any tension or thoughts you wish to get off your mind. Calm App is also a wonderful resource for meditations.

You can also take this time to explore fasting and the ketogenic diet. While we don’t have to physically go into work, you may find more time to prioritize your health in new ways.

We’d love to hear your feedback on these videos! Let us know if they’re helpful and if you’d like to see more lists like this in the comment section below the article. Enjoy!
