The Home Gym You Didn’t Know You Had: Three Online Workouts to Try

Spin, barre, interval training, boot camp. When it comes to sweatfests, you’ve tried them all. But chances are you did them at a gym, studio, or outdoors. This winter, try bringing the workout home: These online classes can be streamed into your living room, so you can work out anytime — whether you’re running late or can’t hit the gym.


Take yoga classes with yoga gurus such as Elena Brower, Amy Ippoliti, and Marc Holzman with the click of the mouse. World-renowned instructors teach classes weekly in YogaGlo’s Santa Monica, California studio, which are filmed in HD and posted on the YogaGlo site. For the price of one in-studio class, you’ll get an entire month’s worth of yoga wisdom you can access at your own pace.

One-month membership, $18. Available at
