I really like Apple Fitness+ workouts. I had to buy a couple of dumbbells for strength workouts, but I think it’s a good investment.

One of the things I miss most with home workouts is the social aspect of seeing gym regulars. My last gym was quite social. I think with Fitness+ you can choose to do a workout with someone else, but I’ve not tried it yet.
