FitnessGlo Home Workout Videos: Work Out Where the Pros Go

Alexandra Williams, MA and Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA

Some things work well when approached obliquely– like sneaking in 10 minutes of exercise when you get a chance (keep reading to access the ultimate home video workouts that are set up so you can sneak in some short bursts of  fun and sweat.) But what we are not sneaky about is that the following product review is a sponsored one.

Alexandra: If you’ve ever wondered where top group fitness teachers go to work out, the answer is, “we go to the very tippy top; to the world-class instructors.” Yes, you could call us workout snobs.  Or you could say we’re very discerning. But when we take a class we want to be sure it’s from instructors who know their stuff.

Giveaway and Product Review

Kymberly: And if you’ve wondered where you might win free membership to a new video home workout website, the answer is RIGHT HERE courtesy of FitnessGlo.com. Enter the giveaway below after you read this post. But first, be one of the first to find out about FitnessGlo.com, where you’ll find a plethora of home workouts you can tailor to your tastes, schedule, and goals. Yes, it’s mix and match time. Plus I wanted to say “plethora” as it’s a cool word.

Alexandra: When FitFluential invited us to be part of a sponsored campaign to showcase FitnessGlo, I did air jacks and push-ups of joy because I love, love, love, love the quality of the workouts, led by international star and Presenter of the Year Petra Kolber.

See the joy! So glad to work with FitnessGlo

Just like fitness enthusiasts who want a good home workout, so do fitness professionals. And we like the added bonus of having access to choreography we can use in our own classes.

Trust and Credibility

Alexandra: For me, it’s very important that I trust the instructor’s knowledge. I get so frustrated by celebrities who offer workouts, yet don’t actually have any credentials; they just have fame. Fame doesn’t keep my boomer joints safe. When I went to the FitnessGlo site, the first thing I did was go to the About: Team page to check out the instructors’ qualifications.

You should click the link; they have impressive resumés. The second thing I did was go to the Style tab and choose a workout. I’m partial to step, and I always need new ideas, so I started there. Then it was on to the tube workout and disco dance class.

Organized by Level, Style, Duration, or Teacher

I sure am sweating, I mean, perspiring, I mean “Glowing”

Kymberly: What I liked about the site is the easy navigation and variety of options. You can choose your workout by level, workout type, teacher, or how long you want to exercise. Like my sis, I gravitate to step. Combine that with a dancey style and I am ready to sweat and go … or in this case “Glo.”  So for my initial foray into the site, I chose Latin Step with Petra. I was revved up after that so kept going with an easy to follow, Level 1 low impact cardio workout also with Petra and also Latin flavored. Cual sabor! On my next visit I had only 15 minutes open so chose my workout by duration. FitnessGlo is all about finding balance so I selected an abs class rated level 3 that lasted 10 minutes. Ten challenging minutes. That level 2 is looking tempting for my next strength or core workout.

Time-Saving

Alexandra: Since I teach so much, I rarely attend a class, especially as it’s a 20 minute drive to the nearest club. But now my kids are getting used to seeing me working out in front of my computer monitor. And when I hear the oven timer ding, I can hit pause, go check on dinner, then return to my workout. Or I can just choose one of the shorter workouts (they range from 5 – 45 minutes long). Which would you rather do, spend 20 minutes driving in traffic or use those same minutes to get fabulously buff and toned? Exactly.

Kymberly: I’d rather spend 20 minutes eating whatever Alexandra was cooking for dinner.

    Historically, I haven’t been a big ‘work out at home’ girl. I love the vibe of the gym. That being said, I’m trying to squeeze more bytes of movement into my writing days and am happy to take your recommendation on the best place to find quality workouts!
    Thanks (and hope I win!)

      Like you we love the gym and group classes. However, we know most of the instructors in the FitnessGlo videos, who are among the best. Work in a strength byte for me, will ya, as I’ll be ferreting out the cardio dance workouts!

    After reading this, I wish I had joined the campaign! :) I trust you two & that you trust this organization!!! I love my gym workouts BUT I do want to do some yoga BUT away from the gym & can’t afford to go elsewhere so maybe this would work… I have not checked the site but assuming they have yoga…

    GREAT REVIEW & I want to eat all of Alexandra’s baked goods! :)

      Hey Jody, they don’t specifically have yoga workouts, but they have over 25 stretch videos and a number of barre workouts. If you are thinking of yoga for its flexibility benefits, try the stretch videos on FitnessGlo. You can get a 15-day trial membership, so maybe give it a whirl and see what you think. All the teachers are good. My favorites are Petra, Ilyse and Alex, but your experience will be your own!

    It’s true – I get so busy working on everyone else’s workout I don’t always have time to work on my own. So I go to an expert or find a video. Thanks for another source to check out on crazy days!

    FitnessGlo has such a catchy ring to it. It makes fitness sound so wonderful (which it is!). But too bad I’m more like FitnessStench after my workouts.

    Not comfortable in group classes, and actually our gym doesn’t offer them.. so this would be a good fit for me.

    I was never much of a work out at home guy. I love weight lifting. I’m currently 250 lbs and workout every day, but the home workouts are really growing on me. Especially now that I have a 14 month old daughter running around. On nights when my wife works and I can’t go to the gym it’s easy to get a workout done at home.

    I think this type of site is going to gain a lot of traction in the near future.
