New Year, New Workout! GS LOVE Staffers confess their favorite online fitness routines.
There’s no denying it, breaking the non-workout rut is hard! Once you’ve established a daily fitness routine carving out time seems rather easy — dare we even say something in which to look forward to, but that initial push to begin can be even a bigger challenge than the actual workout itself.
To get motivated we’ve been swapping our favorite workout routines in the office. We’ve covered the best online workouts to gym sequences and beyond.
The Best “Roll Outta Bed and Work Out” Routines
Core, Booty and Arms Extravaganza with Taylor Harkness
Test your limits of strength and endurance in Taylor Harkness’ Core, Booty and Arms Extravaganza class. His playful attitude and infectious laugh keep me smiling through this 45 minute, level 2 class, but I’ve gotta let you know — Expect to Sweat.
YogaGlo offers hundreds of classes averaging between 5 – 120 minutes, but this one is by far one of the best non-gym workouts.

The “Beginner’s Guide to Becoming A Gym Junkie” Routines
Elliptical Workout Tips & Tricks via POPSUGAR Fitness
The elliptical is one of my go-to cardio machines at the gym because it burns so many calories while taking it easy on my knees. This elliptical workout showed me I can do so much more on it, from going hands-free to pulling backward. It also helped me improve my balance while working out a different set of leg muscles than I’m used to.
Dumbbell Lunges by Extreme Fitness
This is one of my favorite leg and abs exercises because it’s easy for beginners and incorporates weights. Besides giving my thighs a serious workout, I can do it in the comfort of my own home if I’m self-conscious about trying this at the gym. Also, I select the weights I can handle and move up when I’m ready to.

The Workout Challenger’s Top Picks For At Home Workouts
Shape Up: The 30-Day Abs Challenge
I really love this ab workout at home routine because it allows me to push myself over time. I’m not an athletic person and I am not in shape at all so I love that I do not have to start off doing 2 reps of 50 crunches or plank for one minute straight. This workout pushes me to get where I want to be day by day.
30-Minute Indoor Cardio Workout
This workout is amazing. I don’t have a lot of time to go to the gym so I love cardio workouts that I can do at home. Not to mention, I hate treadmills and ellipticals. When I find myself doing absolutely nothing at all, I turn on my best workout jams playlist and do this quick workout.
