If Zuzana's chiseled abs alone aren't enough to inspire you, then you'll love for their creative moves, basic equipment, and short but very intense workouts. The cardio and (mostly) bodyweight circuit workouts are easily adapted to any skill level. Bonus: Unlike many YouTube channels, Freddy shoots high-quality video and Zuzana is great at both explaining and demonstrating.

Craig Ballantyne was one of the first fitness professionals to advocate high-intensity training for fat burning, so it's not surprising that his Turbulence Training videos offer a variety of short interval workouts. You can string several workouts together or add one to your normal routine for an extra dose of fat burning.
