Exercise Anytime, Anywhere: The 5 Best Fitness Channels on YouTube
As a flight attendant, my cousin travels all around the world. Despite being exposed to delicious cuisine and the stressful nature of his job, he manages to keep fit and it always amazes me. I asked him about it a few days ago, because I really thought he was enrolled in gyms all over the world. He laughed and told me that aside from using hotel gyms, he also subscribes to a couple of fitness channels on YouTube.
Each time he arrives in a new country, he works out using the videos as a guide. He told me that not only does his YouTube gym habit save him money, it also exposes him to different kinds of exercise programs. It gives him an opportunity to exercise anytime, anywhere.
