You were going to start your new workout plan yesterday but decided to wait until tomorrow. Thing is, today is that tomorrow you were talking about. What now? Perhaps you are feeling a little overwhelmed about where to begin or where to go. There are so many types of workouts available that designing your own fitness plan can be a daunting task. Money may be a factor as well and who wants to spend money they don’t have on fitness equipment they may not use? Barefoot at-home workouts may be the best place for you to start.

You were going to start your new workout plan yesterday but decided to wait until tomorrow. What now? Kick off your shoes and get untangled with some free barefoot at-home workouts with YouTube!

I know a lot of people start out strong every January, transforming from a couch potato to a fitness fanatic overnight. But they overdo it and change right back into a spud. Let’s face it, the couch can be persuasive when wooing…I love and miss you. Baby, please come back to me. My world is empty without you. And just like that the couch is holding you in its arms all night long again. Breaking up is hard to do. But you don’t have to go it alone.

Go ahead and kick off your shoes and join me for your first barefoot at-home workouts of the year!

Once upon a time, I discovered I could work out with YouTube videos. I was doing a little research on ballet workouts when I came across YouTube videos from a New York City Ballet ballerina. I spent the next hour thrilled to be performing pliés, tondus and relevés with a real NYC Ballet dancer. This little ballerina wannabe was having tutu much fun. Now years later, I am still hooked on this as one fantastic at-home fitness solution.

Maybe YouTube is exactly what you are looking for too? It’s a free and simple way to ease on down, ease on down the fitness road. I have selected a few videos to share with you that I like. All of them can be done in a small space, require little to no equipment, and range in time between 15 and 36 minutes. And yes, they’re all done barefoot.

Denise Austin: Total Body Pilates Challenge

For something short in length to get you going, this video from Denise Austin is a standing Pilates workout that’s only 15 minutes long. She has a friendly and motivating style of training. The set is pretty and it has an outdoor tropical resort feel! No equipment is required.

Cardio Barefoot Flow

Trainer Jessica Smith invites you into her living room with Cardio Barefoot Flow. This 36-minute video mixes ballet, yoga, and modern dance for one fun routine. Jessica is sweating right along with you since it is shot live. No equipment is required.

Jenny Ford’s 30-minute beach yoga video is a great full-body stretch for tight muscles. The yoga poses move from one to the next at a good pace. I felt limber and relaxed after this workout. Plus, the beach sunshine puts me in a warm and happy mood all year round! An exercise mat is required.

If you are struggling with form or mobility, a personal training or physical therapy session could do wonders for you on your exercise journey.

So tell me, are you currently workin’ it out barefoot with me?
