Length: 15–37 minutes
Workout type: No-equipment
This is one of nine episodes in a series that is perfect for people who do not want too much of a high-impact intensity. What I like about these workouts and the instructors is it’s mainly focused on using at least 60% to 70% of your maximum effort. These episodes of workouts are for anyone who is seeking total-body strengthening. And this one requires no equipment. —Michelle Thao, NASM-certified personal trainer in Huntsville, Alabama

4. 15-Minute Full-Body Burn (1.0 and 2.0)
This 15-minute HIIT workout starts with the 1.0 version—it’s suggested that you do that for four weeks before moving to the 2.0 version.
Length: 15 minutes
Workout type: HIIT; no-equipment
This is a simple, no-equipment way to get your heart rate up. There are several different workouts, and each one includes variations for the moves. These videos would be great for people who are short on time, but looking to move. Someone could also watch more than one episode to make their workout 30 minutes or more. I love doing HIIT workouts because they go so quickly and give me a great full-body workout. Extra tip: Having an amazing playlist always helps make HIIT workouts better. —Lauren Leavell, NASM-certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor in Philadelphia

5. Total-Body Pilates Tone, Sculpt & Strengthen
This series of three Pilates workouts each contains a cardio component for extra endurance benefits.
Length: 30–32 minutes
Workout type: Pilates; no-equipment
I like this series because it requires no equipment. The workout is low impact and can be done from a small space like an apartment or a bedroom. It would be a great active recovery workout for a runner or someone who typically does higher-impact workouts—I love to use Pilates as an active recovery workout. It is also completely appropriate for someone new or returning to exercise. —Leavell

6. Flexibility Yoga 30-Minute Workout to Boost Mobility With Julia Jarvis
This yoga workout targets hip and back pain by loosening tight hips and hamstrings.
Length: 30 minutes
Workout type: Yoga
Flexibility is a vital part of our holistic wellness, especially as we get older, but it’s often missing from people’s fitness programs. This video provides a great workout targeting stretch and mobility movements for people of all flexibility levels, all within 30 minutes. —Katrina Pilkington, NASM-certified personal trainer in Sacramento, California

7. 21-Day Transformation
These 10 workouts include days dedicated to cardio, strength, and yoga for cross-training options to keep your body feeling good as you challenge it.
Length: 18–41 minutes
Workout type: Strength training; no-equipment
I enjoy the camera angles; they will allow the exerciser to know what the proper form is at all times. Julia Bognar and Kelsey Bohlen’s explanations are clear and concise, teach the basic cues needed for good movement, and remind the exerciser to breathe throughout. This is going to be great for the beginner exerciser, especially if they want to get comfortable with exercising or before hiring a personal trainer. I also think in times of quarantine, the everyday gymgoer or athlete who may not have access to weights can benefit from the bodyweight work. Their joints will surely appreciate it. —Whitney D. Leyva-Camberos, M.S., CSCS, assistant strength and conditioning coach at Fresno Pacific University in Fresno, California

8. Cardio HIIT With Weights Workout
