2014 will be here before we know it and my favorite place (the gym) will be packed. As a group fitness instructor, I absolutely love a when a sweaty newbie comes to class, however I also know that not all FitGirls like to sweat it out in public. Well if this is you sis, then you are in for a treat.

America’s most innovative gym, Crunch, has just launched Crunch Live–an online fitness portal bringing the best of Crunch’s fitness classes to the web. I had a chance to test it out and all I can say is, “Move your coffee table and couch out the way, stat!”

Sweat With The Best

Sometimes the only thing standing between your excuses and your goals, is the voice behind the music. Group fitness is widely popular since it allows fitness enthusiasts to be led and literally carried away in a fun and sweaty way. I know this first-hand and therefore am so inspired by Crunch’s recent efforts with Crunch Live. As the first national gym to provide a digital platform featuring videos of actual class formats offered in the gym, fitness fanatics everywhere can sweat on their own terms with the industries best.

There’s Something For Everybody

The workouts featured on Crunch Live represent some of the best of Crunch classes–offering a selection from all genres and led by the brand’s expert group fitness instructors. There’s Barre Assets with former prima ballerina Irini Res Eckes, Gospel House Aerobics with choreographer and dancer Craig Smith, and Urban Attitude with NYC’s finest LaShawn Jones. And of course there are the signature Crunch classes like DIESEL, Yoga Body Sculpt, Fat Burning Pilates and Crunch’s old-school favorite, Aerobics with an Attitude.

Sounds like tons of fun right? Like me, I am sure you are going to love how well organized the site is too! You can search by category, instructor, duration or class name and find the perfect workout for you on any given day. Then you can organize them in your “favorites” section on the site. Super RAD! Oh and P.S. Be sure to stay on the look out since new workouts will hit the site on a regular basis.

That’s cheaper than that cocktail you had last night! Such a steal considering you will definitely feel like you are in a real group fitness setting.
