That’s why we composed a list of YouTube fitness channels for every age, mood, and skill level. From cranking out choreographed moves to the latest pop songs, to yoga for uncertain times, to working out in bed—let us be your guide, so that you can focus on choosing what’s best for you today.

MadFit – 2.89 Million Subscribers

There’s at least one video on Maddie Lymburner’s channel that will be calling your name. The 22-year-old Canadian YouTuber churns out a variety of fitness content—posted nearly every single day—from stretching and yoga to knee-friendly low impact workouts. Looking for an ultra fun challenge? Try one of her song workouts. Maddie creates impressive choreographies to popular songs, with each workout targeting a different muscle group. Most recently, she posted a full-body workout set to Drake’s “Toosie Slide.” In the mood for a throwback? She also has a squat challenge video set to Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” Each of these videos is only the length of the song, generally between two to five minutes, so there is no excuse not to pop one on and follow along.
