If the idea of shuffling into the gym after a period of absence makes you feel less than confident, then give yourself a headstart in the comfort of your own home. It doesn’t matter if you have to have a lie down after a few minutes when the pause button is at your fingertips and your personal trainer can’t actually see you…

YouTube isn’t just a source of funny animal clips, there’s also a whole host of videos and channels devoted to giving you quick, easy and manageable workouts that you can complete in the corner of your living room. There’s no pneumatic instructor with a headset and a go-to attitude to avoid eye contact with here, check out top picks of online workouts here...

A quick browse of the Body Rock YouTube channel and it’s hard not to feel inspired. The hook is that you don’t need to hit the gym, instead getting the calorie burn and strength training you need in a space as small as the corner of your living room with a few bits of equipment. There’s no doubt about it, Lisa-Marie looks smoking hot and makes the hard work look easy - but crucially lets you in on the fact it is hard work. This is as close as you get to a personal trainer in your own home and there are various programmes to follow. The Daily HIIT is a daily programme that publishes a new video each day for you to follow.

Want to look like a Victoria’s Secret Model? Well one thing you may have noticed as they strut down the catwalk at the annual fashion show is that there isn’t a single ounce of jiggle, wiggle or wobble. Blast your fat Victoria’s Secret style under the watchful eye of Andrea Orbeck, who has trained the models pre-show. Particularly brilliant about this 10 minute session is that it doesn’t require a single piece of equipment and works the whole body. There’s no need for a trip to the gym so as you can get this done in the comfort of your own home you could even do it like the models themselves - in your underwear...

If you’ve been inspired by Strictly and mesmerised by the toned abs and limbs of the professional dancers then look to their Dancing with the Stars counterpart Julianne Hough who has mixed a few pro-moves into a 10 minute workout. It’s low impact and great for beginners who are starting the new year feeling like their want to ease their way into fitness. It’s also proof that you don’t have to spend hours on cardio machines in the gym to reach your fitness goals.

If you’ve got a chair and a wall then there’s nothing stopping you getting through these 12 exercises. The workout has been specifically designed to get you the maximum results in the shortest amount of time and rather than following an over-enthusiastic instructor, the personal trainer in this instance is illustrated. If you find cheesy encouragements of ‘good job’ et al annoying and distracting then this is the no-nonsense video approach to personal training.
