The beauty of online workouts is that they can be accessed anytime, from anywhere with a solid Wi-Fi connection and enough space for a yoga mat. There are a ton of options—many with free trial periods—so the key is finding one that brings a little joy into your day.

Smart Home Gyms



    The TEMPO Move is a smart gym designed for weight training. Sensors track your reps and correct your form, and certified coaches provide a personalized training plan. The subscription includes thousands of live and on-demand classes that you can stream on your TV.




    The FRAME Pilates Reformer is sleek, pretty, and compact enough to keep at home. It also has a built-in touchscreen monitor that streams Pilates classes and syncs up to your workout playlist by Bluetooth.


Full-Body Online Workouts

  • Drea Wheeler

    Drea Wheeler

    Drea Wheeler’s on-demand classes are intense, sure, but they’re also tons of fun. (Wheeler is a natural motivator, and she also makes us laugh.) Expect to feel the burn in Bodylicious. In Flowlicious, it’s slow, intentional, restorative goodness. You can get a taste of what it’s all about with this 30-minute no-equipment workout she recorded just for us.

  • Tracy Anderson

    Tracy Anderson

    This option needs little in the way of introduction: This is the workout that Gwyneth does, made available in living rooms everywhere. Anderson designs online classes to mimic what goes down in her studio classes—and as with a traditional membership, the moves change every week. Diehards can actually install the signature cardio fly floor in a garage or spare bedroom for the full experience.

  • the be.come project by Bethany C. Meyers

    the be.come project by Bethany C. Meyers

    So much of the marketing for online fitness classes—and fitness in general—is framed around body insecurity as motivation. You’ll find none of that here. Each week, Meyers releases a new class that is designed to be done as many times as you’d like over the course of the next seven days as you get familiar with the movements. Bonus: Classes are a very doable (yet effective) 25 minutes.

  • the ness

    the ness

    The ness started as an invite-only studio in Tribeca: Trainers specialize in a bounce workout, which is low impact on your joints thanks to the springy trampolines but still works up a considerable sweat, plus a full sculpt-and-tone class. And now you can access those same classes online—no trampoline required, as they also add new videos of the trampoline-free sculpt classes each week.

  • The Floss

    The Floss

    The Floss is an online fascia flossing studio from Bonnie Crotzer. It’s magic for improving your range of motion and releasing stiffness. The key is engaging muscles as you stretch them. A membership includes livestreams on Monday and Thursday mornings, plus unlimited on-demand classes. You’ll get access to Crotzer’s flossing library, which includes tailored videos for different areas of the body.

  • eve. by Taylor

    eve. by Taylor

    Check out eve. by Taylor: Instructor Taylor Welch motivates you through short bursts of cardio plus strength-building moves that leave you sweaty and satisfied. Expect a lot of core work, not a lot of downtime, and the kind of thumping pop that’ll keep your head in the game when things get real. It’s helpful to have some home-gym basics on hand—Welch typically uses a pair of ankle weights, light dumbbells, a weighted ball, a bench, and a mat.

  • Dance Church

    Dance Church

    Dance Church is a good workout, yes. But you’ll keep tuning in on Sunday mornings because it’s also an excellent time. Instead of set choreography, you’ll embrace intuitive movement (your teacher might instruct you to dance into your arms, for example) and feel into whatever’s joyful.

  • Balacize


    We’ve long admired Bala for its extremely cute workout equipment. And the launch of its on-demand workout platform, Balacize, only gave us more to love. A community of all-star teachers brings a bit of everything to the table: jump rope cardio, strength training, yoga flows, restorative breathwork, you name it. Because classes are relatively short, you could sneak something in between meetings or stack together a playlist for a custom workout.

  • The Class Digital Studio

    The Class Digital Studio

    The Class, founded by Taryn Toomey, is one of those if-you-know-you-know kind of workouts. But it’s hard to even call it a workout: What happens during those 60 minutes is more than just an exercise in strength. It’s a cathartic release. One that’s fueled by Fleetwood Mac on blast, heart-rate-boosting burpees, freestyle dancing, and endorphin-releasing roaring—all with the general theme of getting out of your own damn head.

Online Yoga Workouts

  • Open


    LA-based mindfulness studio Open has a vast on-demand library of vinyasa flows, restorative yin, and higher-tempo strength-based practices. And its thoughtfully designed digital landscape makes live classes a pleasure to tune in to. The chat box on the side of your screen keeps it interactive without forcing you to turn on your camera. The meditation classes with cofounder Manoj Dias are especially good.

  • Glo


    Glo’s online classes range from 5 to 90 minutes, and students can choose from super physical “body” classes and more spiritual or meditative mind-and-heart classes. The big selling point, though, is that Glo flies in some of the country’s best yoga teachers, so you get access to incredible resources. Start with Austin-based instructor Gustavo Padron—we always leave his classes smiling. Glo members also have access to lectures and workshops by yoga scholars.

  • Alo


    Beyond the soothing aesthetic of both the site and its content, the appeal of Alo is that you can find any kind of class that focuses on any part of your body for any length of time. If you’re trying to strengthen a certain area—say, your back—you can home in on back-strengthening exercises. Filters for style (Alo offers everything from more-strenuous vinyasa to restorative yin), duration, and difficulty help narrow the search.

  • Yogis Anonymous

    Yogis Anonymous

    Yogis Anonymous is a Santa Monica OG. New classes are uploaded frequently, so there’s no risk of boredom, and the simple staging makes the entire endeavor feel very comfortable.

Online Pilates Workouts

  • House of A La Ligne

    House of A La Ligne

    Vancouver-based House of A La Ligne thoughtfully blends mat Pilates with gentle breathwork and other movement practices, from slow, intentional Qigong to heart-pumping HIIT. There’s a roster of talented teachers, but you should start with founders Katie McKenzie and Taren Grewall.

  • The Pilates Class

    The Pilates Class

    If you’re looking for an informative, structured, and encouraging approach, Jacqui Kingswell’s Pilates and barre practice might be perfect for you. Every class—from slow, stretchy flows to high-powered cardio—is labeled by intensity, which is great on days you want to be pushed and even better on days you don’t. And classes range from 5 to 50 minutes, so you can put in whatever amount of time you have today.

  • Erika Bloom Digital

    Erika Bloom Digital

    Pilates legend Erika Bloom’s digital platform is strongly grounded in Pilates fundamentals, including basic movements, breathing techniques, and prop work, so it’s especially good for newbies. Live classes stream daily, or you can tap into the digital library anytime you’d like.

  • B the Method

    B the Method

    Lia Bartha’s B the Method is low impact, based in Pilates, and great for building strength and stability. It requires minimal equipment—just a mat and a stability ball. (TYou can sub out the latter for a firm pillow or a yoga block or go without.) Bartha recorded a 30-minute B the Method session for us, if you’d like to get started ASAP.

Audio-First Workouts

  • Aaptiv


    If you’re not a visual person—or if you just can’t figure out a good setup angle for your laptop screen—Aaptiv is perfect: It’s audio-only, which means all you need is the app and some headphones to get going. It’s sort of choose-your-own-adventure; it can function as a training companion on a run or at the gym or as a class in your living room. There are thousands of options, so it’s just a matter of filtering for skill level, workout style, and duration.

  • Future


    When you subscribe to Future, you get set up with an all-star trainer who tailors your workouts week by week. It’s great for people who like accountability and a good push. Your coach works with your exercise preferences and what you have available to you, whether that’s gym access or a lone pair of dumbbells. From there, your phone will show you a demo of whatever motion is up next, but as you get used to the moves, you’ll rely on the simple audio cues from your coach.
