You can take (almost) every fitness class you could ever want right from your living room.
Workout videos (and gym fitness overall) have come a long way since Jane Fonda’s Workout from the 1980s. Now, in the age of Netflix and Hulu, all you really need is a phone or tablet and an internet connection to take a virtual exercise class anytime, anywhere.
Streaming workout subscriptions, and the apps you use to access them, do the same thing those old exercise VHSes and DVDs did: bring the gym to you and allow you to do strength training, HIIT or cardio workouts on your schedule. But they go a step beyond by offering large libraries of fitness classes that you can stream unlimitedly — just like Hulu and Netflix do for movies and TV shows.
You pay a flat monthly fee to stream unlimited workout classes on your TV, computer, tablet or phone. Usually these classes are prerecorded and available on demand, but some services — such as Peloton and Daily Burn — also offer live classes that you can tune into.
With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to figure out which workout plans are worth your money. In this guide, cnet covers the best streaming workouts you can buy and what to consider before signing up.
