If you are a mother of two, don’t feel comfortable in a gym environment, or don’t have the budget to spend on an expensive fitness subscription, then you can try out some of our favorite at home workout videos to break a sweat right in the comfort of your home. No excuses, wake up a little bit earlier to get a morning workout in before you officially start your day or even try some of the exercises out before you hit the hay for the night.

The Yoga Strength Routine
This Vinyasa Yoga practice promises to cultivate heat, trim, tone, build strength and flexibility. All the Yoga videos by Adriene are great for beginners and professionals alike, as she walks through each move with modifications for all fitness levels. If you want to get into yoga and are feeling particularly committed, you can also try out her 30 day challenge. All you need is a mat and a devotion to yourself.
The HIIT Session
There’s nothing like a HIIT workout to turn your heart rate way up and burn some calories. HIIT is a type of training where you alternate between short very high intensity exercises and periods of slower intervals to recover. These kind of exercise routines have been shown to increase your resting metabolic rate and make your body more efficient at using fat reserves for fuel, meaning the benefits extend far beyond the intense 40 minutes that you’ll use.
The Ballet Workout
Just looking at this video you might think it won’t be challenging enough, but let us tell you, you will feel your muscles on fire after just a couple of minutes. The Ballet Beautiful workout videos and beautifully choreographed moves will make you feel like a ballerina, all while sculpting your body with a series of low impact moves.
The Total Body Stretch
If you’ve had a long, stressful, or generally bad day you need to try this stretching video out before heading to bed. It will help you release any negativity and prepare your muscles for a deeper and more peaceful sleep. This is also a great routine to add at the end of your usual workouts to boost recovery.
