Thanks to the brave new world of on-demand sweat sessions, playing hooky from your IRL workout class is no biggie. And hallelujah for that, since the idea of leaving your cozy, hygge-inspired home to hit a studio workout class in the dead of winter isn’t always appealing.
Even if your living room doesn’t yet boast a Peloton bike or treadmill, you can still raise your heart rate in the (digital) company of buzzy fitness instructors across all genres of workouts: HIIT, yoga, spin, you name it. Kind of makes you want to make your workout queue as long as your Netflix one, right?
Keep reading for 6 of the latest on-demand fitness classes you can do right from home.
1. mF Online, $20 per month
The likes of Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift have visited modelFIT’s New York City location (it has a second spot in Los Angeles) for functional, small muscle-targeting workouts designed by founder Vanessa Packer and head trainer Javi Perez. The at-home editions of the studio’s offerings allow you to tone at home and are mostly equipment free. But heads up—some of these 5–20 minute sessions require resistance bands, small hand and ankle weights, and a Pilates ring.
2. [email protected] Online, $35 per month
Prefer to bust a move in private? No problem. [email protected] now offers its five, super-fun signature classes online. They’ll bring the jams; all you need is your body. But to really get the whole studio-at-home vibe, maybe invest in founder Katia Pryce’s genius (read: not gross and sweaty) wrist weights—AKA Dance Bands—and Hex Mat.
3. 108 Yoga, $14 per month
If you can’t sneak away to Aruba (*sigh*) to visit Rachel Brathen’s Island Yoga Studio, you can still practice with @yoga_girl and a plethora of other expert teachers online. The platform offers thousands of classes on-demand, so variety won’t be an issue here. As an extra win, your subscription comes along with access to guided meditations and healthy cooking classes. Make sure you have your mat and your yoga blocks at the ready.
4. Physique 57, $30 per month
Bring the burn of barre class home with these no-equipment, body-sculpting workout videos. Physique57’s streaming service lets you DIY your workout with short exercises that can be combined into playlists. No doubt, they’ll be killer.
5. MNDFL Video, $15 per month
If it’s a workout for your mind you seek, look no farther than the online iteration of New York’s MNDFL meditation studio. Videos range from 1–30 minutes and feature themes like breath, heart, and even emotions (you know—for days when you have *all* the feelings).
6. FLY Anywhere, $39 per month
Okay, there’s definitely an upfront cost associated with this at-home workout. But once you’ve invested the $1,699 price of the bike (plus the $400 tablet…and don’t forget the spinning shoes), your Flywheel monthly membership is about the price of one boutique fitness studio ride. So not too shabby. And hey, you’ll have access to expert instructors 24/7.
Another bonus of on-demand workouts is that your post-sweat snack is within reach. Here are the go-tos SoulCycle instructors use to refuel and the SoulCycle x Milkbar collaboration cookie you don’t want to miss.
