We all remember what it was like to go off to college and receive that fateful warning - 'beware the freshman 15.' Well, that was a long time ago but it feels like we're facing the same dilemma again. A wrench has been thrown into our routines. Healthy eating slowly gets replaced by pantry grazing and a closed gym means more time binging shows on the couch and much less movement. Fortunately YouTube has plenty of free fitness videos for every type of workout and activity level. Below are some of our favorites.
