Showing love for YT instructors of color during Black History Month

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I just wanted to share some of the YouTube instructors I’m loving and paying homage to by doing their workouts during Black History Month. They have great workout—cardi, cardio sculpt, low impact, dance, yoga and everything in between. These workouts have fantastic music and some with great outdoor scenery too. Enjoy!

Thank you for the list!

I really like:

Millionaire Hoy: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...illionaire+hoy


And I just found Brian Syuki - lots of indoor walking/running workouts, standing abs, and others. I haven't done any but they look good: https://www.youtube.com/c/FocusFitnessGlobal/playlists

I've been doing fitness dvds with instructors of color, but I love your idea too!

This is great list. Some new ideas to check out.

Can I add two channels with step aerobics:

I have a couple on a playlist I've saved to do while recovering from my ankle break:

Curtis Adams
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40tH...D&index=5&t=1s
(This guy has several workouts geared toward seniors and he seems really nice!)

I can't find a name, except for Crystal. The channel is called Puzzlefit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40tH...D&index=5&t=1s
(I think this is the only injury-related workout on this channel. This woman has a variety of great-looking, tough workouts on her channel, but she injured her ankle, so she did a workout for people with injuries.)
