YouTube star who shares viral no equipment workouts online transforms thousands of bodies

Statistician turned Youtube star Chloe Ting has gained more than three million subscribers in the past 30 days while the world has been living in isolation – as they follow her free ‘flat tummy’ and ‘hourglass’ workout videos from home.

The 34-year-old from Melbourne is currently locked down in Los Angeles due to the coronavirus, but that hasn’t stopped her uploading daily fitness content for her 7.58million fans to follow.

Her most popular video – and the one that inspired the #chloetingchallenge hashtag on social media – is her ‘Get Abs in Two Weeks’ footage, which has 103million views, followed by her ‘Do This Everyday to Lose Weight’ video, which has been seen by 43million people.

According to Social Blade, a website that tracks YouTube creators and approximates how much money they earn, Chloe has gained 2.92million followers, more than 223million views and potentially $1.2million in ad revenue in the past month.  

Home workout videos are one of the few fitness sublets booming in the face of the global pandemic, as typical gyms and studios remain closed to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Having joined YouTube only five years ago at the age of 29, Chloe is eager to make her mark on the platform, and is the eighth most watched channel created by an Australian.

Her ab-focused video features 16 different exercises which are all completed within 30 seconds. After every two exercises are finished you get a 10 second break.

It involves reverse crunches, a spiderman plank, Russian twists, a plank with hip dips and an up and down plank, all of which ‘burn’ the abdominal region and help you achieve a tighter core.

If you complete Chloe’s ab video and pair it with her ‘hourglass’ booty video the 34-year-old claims you’ll be well on your way to achieving a a cinched in waist and Jessica Rabbit-style body in 30 days.

The glute workout, which is only 15 minutes long, features a side plank abduction, leg circles, donkey pulses and fire hydrant kicks.

For those women who might be worried the exercises will ‘bulk’ up their thighs, Chloe begins the video by reassuring them that the movements only create a tighter posterior. 

While her speciality in isolation might be workout videos Chloe is not a registered personal trainer, something she addresses in the description box of every video.

‘When following any of my videos please take precaution to exercise in a safe environment and I highly suggest seeing a health and fitness professional to give you advice on your exercise form and dietary needs,’ she said.

‘Every person is unique and there is no one size fits all solution to health or fitness. I am not a medical professional and your health and safety is the utmost importance.’

Many of the exercises she reenacts are ‘well-known’ in the fitness industry, and therefore the majority of her viewers will know how to perform them with correct form. 

And she’s careful not to incorporate moves that aren’t actually proven to target weight loss or sculpting. 

‘I feel like in my field, like in fitness, or in health, you kind of need to read journal articles, like health journal articles, or fitness,’ she told Whimn in 2019.

Much of their gratitude comes from the simple fact that Chloe has never tried to 'sell' her workouts, always uploading them for free on YouTube
