Magnificent 7 websites for……online exercise training

It seems like many of us are finding it hard to get to the gym. NMTBP brings the gym to you with some great online exercise videos. Do a workout during your lunch break, when you get home from work or any time that best suits you. The best thing about online exercise videos is that you don’t have to worry about rushing to the gym to get to your exercise class by a certain time, it starts when you click your computer
mouse. There are both paid membership and free sites on this list.

We suggest you watch the online exercise video before trying it to see what exercise level it is and if it is an ideal workout for you. Always check with your GP before starting a diet and/or exercise regimen. Here are the best online exercise video sites. Let’s get started exercising!

Workouts on Demand

At Workouts on Demand you’ll find loads of workouts available. This is a membership site, so you’ll need to pay for a membership. You can choose between streaming or downloading your workout videos for your convenience. There is even an online food journal to help you track calories and food intake. Try a free exercise video so you can get a sense of what Workouts on Demand is like

iPilates

iPilates enables you to enjoy all the benefits of studio based Pilates classes in your own home. So they’ve created a series of Pilates workouts each carefully devised to keep you in shape and to help you exercise as effectively as possible, all in the comfort of your own home. They cost £5 each so you can afford to buy a new one every month. Once you’ve bought your workout you’ll be prompted to download the file onto your computer and then listen to the detailed instructions as you enjoy a workout session that’ll leave you feeling flexible and relaxed. By listening to these instructions you’ll be able to focus on your own body, without the need to keep stopping to look at a screen or a book.  Once  a file is stored on your computer it csn be copied to a portable music player if you’d prefer to listen this way. There’s also a section on the site for beginners
