Miranda, not one to hide her feelings, goes from squealing with delight to hyperventilating with disgust. They can’t all be winners for this star. Can you guess which one she would put in her mouth again? Watch the video above to find out.
With the official start of 2021 – which will hopefully be so much better than 2020 – the desire to be physically fit and achieve that “beach body” (whatever that is) is at a seasonal high. Whether due to a new year’s resolution to get in shape, stay active, lose weight, or simply be more healthy, people are looking for ways to feel and look good despite being under stay-at-home orders.
Across the country, gyms are still closed thanks to the pandemic and many of us are looking for new ways to follow those fitness goals. Enter YouTube: it’s full of incredible, free workouts that are sure to get you motivated. Here are some of our favorites:
The Fitness Marshall
If you’re like me and hate working out, then The Fitness Marshall may be your answer. Fitness guru Caleb Marshall combines hit pop songs — like “Heat” by Kelly Clarkson and “Pony” by Ginuwine — with dance moves that help you break a sweat and have fun doing it.
Run by husband-and-wife team Daniel and Kelli, Fitness Blender is a simple yet great channel. All of their videos are filmed with a white background so you can actually focus on what they’re doing. They have more than 600 full-length workout videos, and more than 150 of those are HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) to get your body moving and blood pumping. All workouts range from 5- to 45-minutes. While some videos require some basic equipment, many can be done with your body weight alone.
Filmed in a fitness studio with at least three people, the channels feels a bit like an old-school ’80s workout video, without the signature fashion and hair of course…but it does bring that fun group attitude right to you. The channel has different categories: beginners, HIIT, dance cardio, plus workouts targeted at different body parts. You can also choose a class based on length (10 minutes, etc.) Plus, they have a section full of no equipment cardio workouts so you can get your heart rate up without leaving the house
The Body Coach
The Body Coach (aka Joe Wicks) believes that everyone should be able to work out, no matter their fitness level or budget. The channel has more than 250 videos, including challenges, time-based workouts, and workouts for specific body types. There’s a new HIIT workout every week. One of the coolest parts of the channel is that it also has workout for kids, including a daily P.E. class that might be very helpful for any parents who have basically started homeschooling their kids.
No list of YouTube fitness channels is complete without Blogilates. This widely popular channel has close to 4.5 million subscribers and focuses on POP Pilates, PIIT28 and Bootcamp Sculpting. If you have no clue what those are, don’t worry. You don’t need to understand it to enjoy these workouts.
Certified fitness instructor Cassey Ho’s friendly demeanor makes laying on a mat and working your core, legs, arms and butt almost enjoyable.
This channel is not about being a perfect yogi. The motto of the channel is “It’s not about the pose.” All Lesley Fightmaster wants from you is to show up and do your best. She has a number of full-length yoga practices for anyone at any level. You can start with the for beginner videos and then work your way up to 30-minute practices, 45-minute hatha practices, and full 1-hour practices. The tone is supportive, comforting, and non-judgemental. Show up and try your best to see what happens.
Think of Roberta’s Gym as the Alexa of exercising. This animated trainer doesn’t really have a personality, but her on-screen timers and rep counters help you keep track of what you’re doing better than any humanoid.
Despite the name, this instructor isn’t a bully at all. He offers up super motivational videos that anyone can do from the comfort of their home. And he keeps it simple: 20 minute full body workouts that require no equipment. Yes, some of the workouts will kick your ass but what do they say? No pain, no gain!

Jose Canseco continues to stir the pot. But this time, he decided to pick a fight with two of the most controversial personalities on the internet: Logan and Jake Paul, otherwise known as “the Paul Brothers”.
Jake Paul is a YouTube star who has recently dipped his toe into celebrity boxing. In the past, he’s fought other YouTubers like KSI and AnEsonGib, but this weekend he fought against pro basketball player Nate Robinson. The match took place before the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight. Jake Paul ended up winning by knockout, and thus, his name began to trend on the internet.
It was because of Jake Paul’s win that ex baseball player Jose Canseco decided to challenge the YouTuber to a fight.
Jake Paul is known for being a YouTube personality but he is also known for being highly annoying. His sense of humor skews towards a younger audience who likes to watch Jake perform offensive “pranks” and an overly-machismo act.
And we all know Jose Canseco (unfortunately). The Cuban-American former MLB star is just as famous for his rocky personal life as his home run stats. He has been embroiled in controversies surrounding his drug-use and multiple domestic violence charges. Since his retirement from baseball, he has dipped his toe into both boxing and MMA fighting. And apparently, he has a high regard for himself.
Since Jake Paul won his fight against Nate Robinson so handily, Canseco decided he would bring the Paul brothers down a notch. On Sunday, he tweeted out: “I will fight anyone of the Logan [sic] Brothers they have enough for anyone with any type of talent yet or fighting skills”…Whatever that means.
Translation: Canseco was challenging either or both of the Paul brothers to a boxing match.
Never one to back away from free publicity, Jake’s brother Logan Paul jumped into Canseco’s thread and used the opportunity to drag Canseco’s daughter into the petty argument. He tweeted back: “no problem. i love smashing cansecos”. For those of you who didn’t know (which is pretty much all of us), Logan Paul was previously reported to be romantically involved with Canseco’s daughter, Josie Canseco.
Naturally, Jose Canseco didn’t take too kindly to Logan Paul speaking crudely about his daughter.
“Okay since you like smashing Canseco Logan get ahold of my agent Mike Maguire let’s get this done,” he fired off in a tweet storm. He followed that up with: “Logan Paul our fight will be definitely way more entertaining than the Tyson fight cuz at least we know one of us is going to get knocked out” and “And by the way no headgear needed for this fight I have a hard head.”
No word on whether or not this fight will come to fruition. We’re guessing, however, that it won’t.
