    I am very dissapointed that the links offered have not been tested ahead of time. As soon as I saw it was that awful Quality Health site I got out. I put the link in favorites yesterday and just now tried it. I have deleted it and won’t be going directly to ANY links mentioned by this web site that aren’t already known to be spam/virus free. I am becoming very disenchanted with this web site for many reasons.

  4. Melissa says: another great free site with in depth details on individual exercises including video tutorials. Full workouts. And the option to search for specific exercises that target a specific area like quads, bicep, hamstrings ect. This is awesome if you want to change things up or work different parts of a muscle.

    I can’t believe my favorite FREE weight loss website didn’t make it on the list.!  They do it all, food tracking, articles about healthy eating and exercise, group forums, etc.  They have lots of free exercise videos on that site to you.  Plus, they are shown on, so if you don’t want to join this wonderful FREE website and just want the videos, go to Youtube and either search for Coach Nicole or Sparkpeople.

    I had to pick an option such as signing up to use a website’s toolbar in order to download the free zumba fitness video.  No thanks.

  13. Exercisetv was discontinued quite a while back. It was really a great site and I loved the instructors. I was very sorry to see them close the site down :(

  14. Kacey Conley says: is my favorite free workout website! They have cardio, strength training, and yoga. Each workout is no longer than 30 min. but you will be dripping sweat by the time you are done. They have different workouts for beginners and pros and they do a good job at showing lots of different modifications for each workout. I heard about this site on Pinterest and I have fallen in love with it!
