RL Healthy Workout Videos Review

I am the type of person that refuses to go to the gym. It definitely does not bring me any joy, and it’s not because I don’t like working out but because I just can’t seem to workout in front of people solo (probably because I have no idea what I’m doing). That is why I like taking classes where I can follow along with the instructor. Back when I was a kid I took ballet class, and continued doing so on and off for 8 years, so I’m thinking my likeness towards instruction probably stems from that. Over the years I’ve also taken yoga and pilates classes, and as much as I would love to take a class right now (being jobless gives me so much free time) it’s just unfortunately not in the budget at the moment. This is why I do at home instructional videos. Occasionally I’ll do a yoga video, but mostly I do RL Healthy by Rebecca Louise on YouTube.

Everyday I just do a combination of her videos, and call it a day. She has every kind of video that you can possibly imagine ranging from full body workouts to targeting specific body parts. I like all of her videos, but lately I’ve been hooked on her Barre workout videos. I started hearing about Barre workouts in the Spring as they grew in popularity. They have a few studios here in Toronto, but they’re so not financially friendly right now. So I specifically like her Barre Burn Workout because not only does it target legs and butt, but it also targets your core.

Another great thing about her videos is that they’re fairly short, so it doesn’t feel like you’re dying for 30 minutes. She does have longer ones, but I tend to stick to the short ones and just do a bunch of them. When you’re doing a tricky pose or something that’s probably not the most comfortable she’s there cheering you on and telling you that there’s not that much more left. Since starting about 2 weeks ago, and doing these videos about 3-4 times per week I have noticed a significant difference in my legs and butt (yay!!). So I would totally recommend checking her videos out. They’re fun, short, and effective. Plus every so often her videos will feature her adorable dog Alfie (workout + cute fluffy dog = win win).

Are you more of a workout at home person or at the gym?
