In-Home Workouts Give Gyms a Run for Their Money

Break a sweat without heading out the door thanks to live streaming exercise classes

Gone are the days of missing your favorite workout classes simply because you couldn’t make it to the gym. Now, most the action happens from the comfort of your living room—all you need is a wi-fi connection and a laptop.

Qinetic, the latest company to revolutionize the online workout trend, offers a free live-streaming video platform for non-gym goers to reap the benefits of an intense workout by tuning in to a class—yoga, strength, conditioning, dance fitness and core, to name a few—led by skilled, high-profile trainers and coaches. The site, which launched its first classes this month, has already been received with overwhelming praise.

“People love it because they love the emotion that these coaches are bringing into it; you get the same motivating and energizing experience you would from actually being in the room with the instructor,” says Qinetic CFO, COO & co-founder Eric Brody. “They really connect with the instructor…that’s what they like about it outside of getting a great workout.”

Can’t make it to a live stream at the allotted time? Don’t sweat it. Videos are on demand by the next day, so grab your mat and be sure to tune in.
