At this point, you could become a total recluse and still manage to have everything you need to be happy and healthy. (You know, besides a little sunshine.) Amazon has you covered with two-day shipping on anything your heart desires, there are nutritious meal kits and grocery delivery services galore, and Netflix and Hulu could keep you entertained for life. And thanks to the ever-growing number of online workout subscriptions, who even needs to trek all the way to the gym?

I’ve tried nearly every gym chain and boutique fitness class imaginable, but I’ll choose workouts in my living room over pricey in-person sweat sessions any day. In the past, exercising at home meant pulling up YouTube and selecting one of the millions of videos available. But in recent years, some of the world’s most beloved studios, gyms, and trainers have created streaming services that allow you to exercise at home just as effectively as you would anywhere else. And the best part is you can do so for a fraction of the cost.

While you can get many monthly online workout subscriptions for under $40, you can do even better than that. Now a handful of options won’t cost you more than $10 a month, and they’re worth every penny.
