If setting aside time to exercise at a gym feels like a challenge, getting active at home may be the answer. Setting aside time to visit a fitness center on a regular basis, not to mention fitting it in your schedule and handling monthly fees, can all feel quite imposing. Instead of spending your money that way, maybe a free streaming workout routine is the right path for you. All it takes is a few clicks — of the mouse, keyboard or remote control — and before you know it, you can kickstart your fitness regimen without shelling out the big bucks. Just power up your laptop, mobile device or smart TV to begin streaming any assortment of free online fitness classes that’ll have you working out from the comfort of your own home in no time.

And you don’t have to drive anywhere to break a good sweat. Where should you start? Here are some of the best places to start ramping up your wellness goals — without touching your bank account.
