Get Fit for Free on YouTube

You can't browse YouTube without stumbling upon someone's homemade exercise video, but few deliver on the promise of actually providing a full-blown routine. Gregory Han, editor of Apartment Therapy Tech, decided to dig in and figure out how to find and use the good information to get in shape.

From short 30 second clips showing just one exercise to full 30 minute multi-exercise routines, YouTube proved to be an excellent online guide for introducing many of the basic moves which have in time, repetition after repetition, become second nature. It was also from the YouTube comments section - admittedly a minefield of bickering between fitness fanatics dotted with a few glowing gems of information - where another beginner directed me over to an iPad-optimized fitness app.

After sifting through all the information, he put it into practice and lost 25 pounds. He details the good stuff he found and a few apps that helped him, too. You can read the whole story over at Apartment Therapy Tech to learn more.
