It’s hard to work out alone. Even fitness professionals find it hard to self-motivate, which is why you often find yourself sweating next to them in popular group fitness classes. But whether it be a financial, geographical or logistical reason, we can’t always get to a group or private training session.
Fitness gurus like Tracy Anderson, Simone De La Rue and Anna Kaiser have created streaming platforms that are now powerhouses. Joining them is an ever-growing crop of options offering cheaper and often more convenient ways to work out than the traditional gym membership.
Given the sharp increase in competition, most platforms now offer free trials — even the once hyper-exclusive Anderson has a try-for-free option. With so many experts at your fingertips, who wouldn’t jump at the chance to get in a workout without ever having to find parking, trudge through inclement weather or even brush your teeth? After all, half the battle of working out is actually getting to the gym.
