There are some days, waking up and hitting the gym seems like a lot of work. Asides from the time spent commuting to the nearest studio, you’d also have to spend a lot of money on a gym subscription and fitness trainers. If you’re a bit anti-social too, there are some days you’d prefer to just work out by yourself without any social interactions. Luckily with a smart TV, you can stay fit right from your living room.
With unlimited access to fitness services and apps, you can get personalized home workouts. Whether you want to use a piece of equipment, train for a marathon, or just commit to a wellness program, you can achieve your goal. The best part is that you’d also have access to a trainer helping you every step. So, in this post, we’ll be sharing ten home workout apps compatible with your smart TV that you can use for your daily fitness training.
Youtube hosts millions of workout videos you can try out at home. Whether you’re a beginner who’d love simple squats or someone who wants to get back into high-intensity training, there’s a video for everyone. There are popular home workout channels like Pop sugar fitness and 305 fitness dedicated to specific workout goals. For example, if you want to body sculpt, or increase your body weight, you’d have to find a channel or fitness creator that focuses solely on that.
The best part about using Youtube for your workouts is that it’s free – especially if you have a Youtube Premium account. And if you don’t, you’d simply encounter a few ads during these sessions. We recommend using them as mini workout breaks.
This streaming app also offers a commercial-free experience at $13.50 a month. Since it’s cheaper than most gym subscriptions, you can enjoy customized workout plans, trainer support, and tons of videos.
Netfit primarily focuses on high-intensity interval training. The app also promises real results for weight loss, muscle tone, and overall health. It’s available on iOS, Android, and Roku. There’s a 7-day free trial you can explore to be sure it’s the right fit.
Gaiam is a yoga studio app that offers premium yoga and meditation classes. Every class comes with full HD videos and a teacher commentary so you can get the poses right. Each of the 75+ classes offers yoga for back pain, runners, prenatal care and so much more. Choose your level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), – duration (15, 30, or 60 minutes), and focus (strength, flexibility, relaxation, balance, or combination) to find the perfect class for you. Watch these classes directly on your TV using the Apple TV native app.
Get access to live and on-demand classes online with the Peloton app. Here, you can find thousands of classes some of which include lessons on strength, yoga, cardio, and other none equipment-based workouts. There are also programs to help guide you and challenges to help you reach your goals faster. Unlike other apps in this list, you can only stream from one device at a time. Start by enrolling for the 7-day free trial. You can download the app on your iPhone, iPad, Android, tablets, Fire TV, Roku TV, or even on the web.

What’s unique about this service is that in addition to workout videos, you can also watch inspirational documentary films.
You can stream from your TV, mobile device, computer, or tablet. It’s available on Android, iOS, Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast VIZO and so much more. Enjoy a 7-day free trial and if you choose to be a member, the paid plan goes for as low as $8 monthly.
7. Zumba Dance
Access virtual Zumba classes by streaming on the Zumba dance platform. With this service, you don’t need any fancy equipment. There are also classes for different goals.
