For Kit Rich, the celebrity trainer, pilates instructor and founder of KICHGO (which is both her workout platform based entirely on her YouTube channel and her accompanying product line), working out shouldn't be complicated. In fact, it's pretty easy. So easy that she's distilled it down to one mantra: either run, walk or hike for 30 minutes a day or get a 30 minute workout in. With that in mind, Kit launched her platform KICHGO with the busy modern woman in mind – a woman that wanted an effective workout but was too busy to spend 60+ minutes at the gym or a class. KICHGO is about feeling great and celebrating moving in your body by making your fitness routine work for you.
For Kit, consistency and routine is key, which is why most of the classes offered on her Kichgo YouTube channel are just 30 to 35 minutes, meaning you can likely find a way to fit them in at some point of your day. Kit started her career in fitness as a pilates instructor, which serves as the foundation for most of the movements in her program. Each class starts with a short simple warm-up and then jumps right into pilates-inspired and cardio moves before ending with a very short stretch segment. The quick spurts of cardio between pilates moves is a nice touch and helps to spike your heart rate, and with each class being a 6 or 7 on the difficulty scale you could easily combine these classes with a walk or run before or after (we know that contradicts Kit's 3x3 philosophy!).
The entire library is available for free on YouTube, and with clear, clean videos with modifications readily available this is a great, accessible workout for all.
Average Class Difficulty6.8
Glutes and Abs35 minutes class
A fusion of circuit training, Pilates, and Yoga inspired moves. 35 minute video that gets your heart pumping with the cardio between pilates. Although the glutes part isn't that difficult, your abs will definitely be burning for the latter part of the class.
Tabata Lower Body30 minutes class
30 minute live lower body Tabata routine using a combination of Pilates technique and circuit training. No actual equipment is needed, but make sure you have a speaker around you - there is no music in this class.
These 30 to 35 minute cardio and Pilates-inspired classes happen entirely on YouTube, meaning they're free for all. We suggest combining the class with a brisk walk or run for a well-rounded workout.
WHO IT'S GOOD FOR
Anyone at any level looking to start or build onto an existing fitness or pilates practice. The quick spurts of cardio make it faster than traditional Pilates and keep it a bit more interesting.
All KICHGO classes are offered for free on their YouTube channel, or you can train privately with Kit herself.
Good to know’s
Some classes require the KICHGO resistance loop, small ball and/or sliders. If you don’t have any of these, don’t worry, you’ll still get a good workout.
SOMETHING WORTH KNOWING
With classes being 30 to 35 minutes of low impact moves, don’t expect to sweat a ton. You might feel like you can go on a run after (and yes this might go against her philosophy).
