Gym memberships can get expensive, classes aren't always convenient and sometimes, you may not know exactly what you're looking for when it comes to getting fit. If you've been avoiding fitness because of costs and confusion, we're here to get you on the right track.

There's nothing like getting a free workout from the pros, so if you have a hard time motivating yourself, these fitness channels below will do the trick.

For the most part, it doesn't matter where you work out, as long as your exercises are effective and beneficial, explained exercise physiologist Andrea Doepker-Gavidia of Train For Life Fitness & Lifestyle Consulting in Saskatoon. While we're fans of getting the right help when it's needed (for example, hiring a trainer), we're also advocates of experimenting and trying out things out before you commit.

Working out is all about making sure you're interested in your exercise routine. We've gathered everything from yoga workouts to focused workouts (think abs, legs and butt), and other free channels that offer advice on recipes to reviews to well-being tips. We suggest browsing through the slideshow below and choosing one that best fits your needs. We have workouts that are under one minute to workouts that can last up to an hour.

Here are 20 of our favourite free workout channels on YouTube, Instagram and more. For the most part, we have tried to cater to individual fitness needs, but if you see your favourite channel missing, let us know in the comments below:
