Youtube At Home Workouts That Are Better Than The gym

Holly Dolke

Holly Dolke uses short High Intensity Interval Training (Hiit) videos to melt the fat off of you as fast as possible.

Her home workouts don’t require ANY EQUIPMENT (except for a yoga mat or towel) and she doesn’t even wear sneakers.

We’ve collectively lost 20 lbs. with her workouts.

We’ve seen better results from her 4-15 minute fat burner videos than other 30 minute workouts or the elliptical.

Here’s our ode to Holly and what we love about her, including some of her best workouts:

  • Perfectly edited easy to follow videos with an on screen timer and window in the corner that shows you what moves are coming up next
  • While you have short bursts of intense exercise, you get a 20-50 second rest in between so it makes her workout routines easier to stick to and much more doable.
  • Her moves are truly unique, we have not seen them anywhere else and she creates new ones all the time. She also has a coaching app.

Here are our favorite Holly videos:

The Best 9 Min. Ab Hiit Workout This one isn’t all floor workouts and it’s SLIGHTLY easier because it has 20 second segments with 10 second rests in between.
 
 
10 min. Flat Belly Workout This is more challenging because the intervals are 50 second with 10 second breaks in between.

Shelley Darlington (body builder)

Shelley is a body builder, but not all of her videos focus on the gym and weights. She has the absolute BEST video on how to properly do a Stomach Vacuum, which is the easiest and MOST effective stomach exercise for cinching your waist, and you don’t need equipment to do it.

Seriously, don’t attempt a stomach vacuum until you see her video because many fitness gurus get it wrong.

She also delivers great tips on diet and working out in a very humorous and entertaining way. She’s like the Lucille Ball of fitness gurus.

Here are our favorites:

Maya Prosser

Maya’s hip dip workout is a great boost to any butt routine. You’ll see results in 2 weeks.


Mr. London


He’s charming, has a British accent, and will enlighten you on the meaning of FUPA and hip dips without being crude. He also promotes a positive body image for women.

He has an upbeat personal training style with tough workouts and amazing before and afters of his clients.

Especially if you’ve had a bad break up and are in need of a glow up, Mr. London will get you through it!

Here are our favorite videos of Mr. London:

 
At Home Hourglass 30 Day Challenge He does all the great glute and ab activating exercises. Includes a free workout planner!
 
Hip Dip Exercises Mr. London gives a nice intro to hip dips. The 1st exercise he does in this video is at gym but the other 2 aren’t.
 
To be honest, other than the above 3, we haven’t done as much of his workout videos because we get so caught up watching his workout tips. He gives the most AMAZING tips on how to properly choose workout routines to achieve your body goals.
 
Here are just some of our favorites, you should definitely checkout his channel for more:
 
 

Eric Berg 

He’s a chiropractor and holistic expert who has a really simple ab exercise you can do while standing up if you have limited motion. If you also want tips on Keto, Intermittent fasting, and healing your body through food then his Youtube channel is a must.

When we don’t want to do floor ab exercises, this is a good quickie.


Heather Robertson

Heather is GREAT for at home workouts involving workout equipment some people would have at home like resistance bands, dumbells, and yoga balls. If you’re into working out with weights (or even cans of tomato soup) then she has a wide variety of videos you’ll love. 

She also has some video that just require sweat. Our favorite is below..

Stand Up abs 10 mins. There’s no rest in between reps with this workout so it really burns but it’s easy on the neck (and the music is so catchy)!


Janae Penn 

If you want to build that booty or curves for days then Janae will show you how. The proof is in her body. Her at home workouts are simple, straight to the point, with no chatter, and easy to follow. We like it that way.


Lisa Sansone

If you love the treadmill or walking then you HAVE to checkout Lisa’s videos. We bought one of her DVDs years ago and loved it, so we were thrilled to find she has a Youtube channel filled with all of her best walking and fitness videos…for FREE.

She’s not just good for intermediates but beginners, elderly, kids, and those who are pregnant. There are a wide range of walks available for all levels of fitness and the entire family.

Here are some of our favorites:

1 Mile Heart Healthy Walk 

12 Minute Walk At Fat Burning Pace

10 Minute Cardio Blast
