The pandemic saw a massive surge in at-home workouts with everyone’s best friend Adriene Mishler of “Yoga with Adriene,” who helped guide us through the challenging time and got the title of the Reigning Queen of Pandemic Yoga (The New York Times). She has over 10.7 million subscribers on YouTube.
Those looking for a more intense workout must have heard of Chloe Ting of YouTube’s Channel “Chloe’s Addiction,” where she posted tons of challenging exercises that left you super sweaty and promised you a transformed body. Ting has 22.7 million subscribers on YouTube, but her workouts didn’t start going viral till TikTok (via Byrdie). Her workouts are short but hard, and will guarantee to leave you drenched in your sweat. When someone becomes an overnight sensation, it is natural to have questions about a trendy trainer who has captured the heart of Gen Z with her minimalist workouts with impressive results.
There was also a funny conspiracy that Ting was a robot or a digital avatar, which is simply not true (via Jezebel). Teens love her workouts like the “two-week shred challenge” because the pandemic did leave us on the couch more than before. You will not get six-pack abs immediately, but if you follow her videos, you will see results in two weeks, which is probably one reason people love her (via The Hart of Health).
Chloe Ting is not a certified professional fitness trainer but has won many health and wellness awards
Chloe Ting is an Australian social media personality and started posting workout videos on YouTube in 2011 but became more famous after people started doing her workout challenges with the hashtag (#chloetingchallenges) that promised insane results (via Byrdie). Her workouts are so popular because they are trendy, quick, and seem effective because many people have shared their before and after on Instagram, which are enough motivation for anyone to try her at-home workouts.
Born in Brunei, she earns $270.3k -$4.3 million (as view numbers may vary) only from YouTube and is the winner of the 2020 Streamy Award for the Health and Wellness Category (via Idol Persona). She was also nominated for the Shorty Awards in the Health and Fitness category (via Business Insider). Her workouts are fun and accessible, but it is essential to remember that she is not a licensed professional fitness trainer. It is important to consult one before trying new workouts to avoid injuries. If you are relatively healthy and don’t have any injuries, you will probably enjoy her workouts because they are fun, don’t require any equipment, and you can do it from the comforts of your own home. Plus, she modifies the more challenging workouts so you can go at your own pace.
She has won many hearts because she is adorable-looking and is encouraging, and we can all use that to motivate us to work out to look and feel better.
