Joe Holder’s Fitness and Wellness MasterClass teaches you oft-overlooked pillars of whole-body health in just 2.5 hours

Joe Holder teaching his Fitness and Wellness Fundamentals MasterClass.

  • The Fitness and Wellness Fundamentals MasterClass focuses on better whole-life health.
  • The class is taught by Joe Holder, a Nike Master Trainer and plant-based coach.
  • Overall, I love that the class encourages a holistic, functional approach to movement and eating.

Looking to get into wellness, but lost on where to start? There’s a MasterClass for that.

Earlier this year, the educational streaming service released a fitness and wellness fundamentals series hosted by Joe Holder, a former Penn football player, current certified personal trainer, GQ columnist, and all-around darling of the fitness and plant-based community. He also holds credentials in fitness nutrition, women’s fitness, and functional movement, as well as the title of Nike Master Trainer/Run Coach.

Joe Holder Teaches Fitness and Wellness Fundamentals (small)

Don’t expect just a string of workouts (although there are a few guided workouts included). Holder wants to teach you to think about wellness more holistically, incorporating nutrition but also social, emotional, community, spiritual, and environmental health.

What Is MasterClass?

MasterClass is an online, subscription-based education platform featuring courses by industry and thought leaders in a wide range of fields, from politics to entertainment. A subscription costs $15/month for the standard plan (more for premium or annual memberships) and gives you unlimited access to streaming classes, which are organized into multiple lessons that can be completed at your own pace.

What It’s Like to Take Joe Holder’s Fitness and Wellness Fundamentals MasterClass:

The MasterClass is great for beginners, offering a way to start thinking holistically about health and wellness. But more experienced fitness and wellness enthusiasts will likely learn a few new things as well.

The whole series is only two hours and 36 minutes long, and I personally broke it up over the course of a week. The individual videos – even the workouts – are pretty short (the longest is 29 minutes), so it’s not at all intimidating, nor does it require heavy note-taking.

The program is based on Joe Holder’s own Ocho System, which refers to his Penn jersey number but also stands for “one can help others/others can help one.” From this perspective, picking up a phone call from a loved one is a wellness activity. Eating more sustainably for the sake of the planet can be a wellness activity.

Working from a broader definition of “health” encourages viewers to move away from the myopic goals of many traditional fitness programs that promise, for instance, a better butt in four weeks. Holder acknowledges that people care about their appearances, but in his words, “Fitness is not the most important part of your health regimen.” It’s not just a whole-body, but a whole-life approach.

Joe Holder speaking in front of a chopping board with vegetable with gym equipment in the background

Holder is extensively knowledgeable about fitness and places emphasis on the purpose behind every action. There are three guided workouts in the video series – a mobility workout, which features mostly slow, muscle-stretching moves; a HIIT workout that is sweaty but extremely beginner-friendly; and a strength training workout. If you don’t have much experience in different kinds of exercise, don’t worry – he goes at an easy-to-follow pace and demonstrates form for every move. His approach to fitness is unique in that he asks students to think in terms of function, not body parts. Instead of focusing on the core, or arms, or butt, he presents biomotor attributes for students to work on: Strength, speed, endurance, flexibility, and coordination. And he explains how the various exercises contribute to each of those abilities.

The series doesn’t completely avoid the unscientific tropes we commonly see in health and wellness media, particularly BMI and weight as an indicator of health. (Holder also promotes the use of smart scales to measure body fat percentage, which I learned is borderline junk science when researching scales earlier this year.) He also urges you to focus on metrics (weight, but also blood pressure and cholesterol), which may be slippery slope territory for those who struggle with disordered eating.

That said, Holder’s perspective is still much more forgiving than that of many fitness instructors. He encourages viewers not to restrict their eating in a way that feels punishing, and to listen to one’s body, even when what it’s asking for is a nap. (Or pizza, from time to time.) As he says early in the series: “I’m not gonna hit you from a self-loathing perspective, about things that are wrong with you, to try to get you engaged into fitness. That’s not what I do.”

The series is chock full of small, digestible tips and tricks that viewers can pocket, such as how to prepare vegetables for maximum nutrition. He also promotes “exercise snacks,” which are essentially micro-workouts you can squeeze into your daily life. One of the later videos delves deep into recovery, with the help of Joe’s physical therapist brother, Dr. Michael Holder, PT, DPT. Together, they explain different forms of post-activity recovery, and when and why you would utilize them.

Holder also touches on sociality and community as important but often overlooked aspects of health, though he doesn’t dive too deeply into the facts and theory behind them. In the accompanying handbook, he shares some interesting information on the connection between self-care and social justice, for those who are interested. Maybe he’s leaving most of that material for a second course – if that’s the case, let me know when I can enroll.

The bottom line

The MasterClass‘s greatest value is that it gives viewers new things to think about in terms of health – and positive ways to think about them. It emphasizes focusing less on what you want your body to look like, and more on what you want it to do – emphasizing that exercise and diet are just two aspects of living a healthy, fulfilling life.

15 great ways to learn Korean online, from free apps like Duolingo to Rosetta Stone’s immersive courses

When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.

Korean Language Learning IPhone 4x3
There are plenty of affordable or free classes, apps, books, videos, and resources to learn Korean online.

If you’re looking to learn a new language this year, there are plenty of reasons to choose Korean. With Korean pop culture soaring to new heights lately (BTS, anyone?), numerous people have taken to the internet to dive headfirst into the culture where it all came from.

Just as increased interest in manga and anime drove an uptick in Japanese language studies, it’s safe to say that K-pop is doing the same for the Korean language – with the amount of US Korean learners having nearly doubled between 2006 and 2016. According to a recent survey from the language tutoring platform Preply, interest in learning Korean skyrocketed by 27.7% (almost a third) of its users since the release of Netflix’s “Squid Game.”

squid game
The release of Netflix’s “Squid Game” boosted interest in Korean language classes, according to a Preply survey.

While the Foreign Service Institute classifies Korean as a Level IV language (taking about 88 weeks to attain proficiency), the characters, although intimidating at first glance, are phonetic in nature. And the alphabet, which learners are strongly advised to learn first, is pretty straightforward, too: 14 consonants and 10 vowels with symbols that combine into syllable blocks.

If you’re looking to learn Korean (or improve upon what you already know), there is a wealth of resources available to the casual as well as an avid learner.

15 affordable or free resources to learn Korean online:

Duolingo

Duolingo lets you reclaim your social media screen time to be a little more productive—Duolingo even claims that 34 hours on the app is equal to one university semester of language courses. By gamifying the process with bite-sized questions, virtual rewards, and levels to unlock, Duolingo makes learning engaging and fun. While light on the actual language comprehension, it’s a good on-the-go resource for practicing vocabulary—perfect to fill in the gaps or supplement a more intense learning program.

Drops

Korean is the most popular language to learn on Drops, which uses word puzzles and mnemonic association to make learning appealing as well as effective. The app is built on the premise that learning a new language is all about building a new habit — and then strives to make that process as simple and as visually pleasing as possible. The app even teamed up with Amber Liu, a former K-pop girl group member, for a special learning series that covers topics such as Korean food, music, traveling, K-dramas, and more. Don’t expect to be fluent if you’re just using this app, but it’s a great way to brush up on vocab daily.

Hinative

Hinative is a Q&A forum for users to ask — and answer! — questions about languages they’re interested in. After all, there’s only so much you can do to learn a language from simply reading a book or watching a video. The app allows users to check pronunciations via audio recordings, find translations, ask for phrasing — and it all comes from real-life people. And at the end of the day, if you really want to excel at a language, it can’t hurt to talk to actual native speakers.

Rosetta Stone 

Learning with the Rosetta Stone will train you to speak like a native — in other words, to understand and be understood when speaking with locals. To that end, the app (which also works on your browser!) focuses on learning through context and conversations as opposed to rote memorization. Their learning method also places a lot of emphasis on pronunciation—easily one of the biggest stumbling blocks for non-native speakers, since Korean is heavily intonational—through patented speech recognition technology.

Quick Korean (YouTube)

These video lessons come from the Cyber University of Korea, making them as close to studying in a classroom as you can get from the internet. The first level features an English instructor, while levels 2-4 are taught by a Korean instructor with English subtitles. Speed through the playlists on Youtube or get the full experience on the university’s website when you register for free.

Oh My Korean 

If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, the Oh My Korean blog has study materials geared towards helping you prepare for the Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK). In fact, there’s no English on the site at all. Instead, you’ll find plenty of worksheets and useful information, from grammar and vocab to reading and writing practice. You can even buy the workbooks that said worksheets come from if you want to go through it all in one place.

  • Some of them are part of longer certificate programs, including several from Google.

Coursera is a popular e-learning platform, offering thousands of courses administered by some of the top universities and higher-learning institutions in the world.

With such a breadth of options, it can be hard to know which courses are worth your time (and money, if you opt for a certificate program).

We reached out to Coursera to get some insight on their most popular courses based on completion rates, a metric we felt signaled the value a course is providing to students. Coursera wasn’t able to share exact completion rates with us, but they provided a list of courses that they say have both high enrollment numbers and corresponding high completion rates.

Online Courses (small)

Many of the courses are free to audit (Click the “Enroll” button and then “Audit this course”), meaning you can view all of the course’s videos and materials but usually can’t earn a certificate of completion. Others are parts of longer paid certificate programs (including several from Google), which can cost $39 or $49 per month until you finish.

Whether you’re looking to sharpen up some business skills or pick up a new hobby, Coursera probably has something for you.

Wedding Photography: Capturing the Story

Rocco_Ancora_Wedding_Photography_Capturing_the_Story_WEB_1600x900

Wedding photography: capturing the story, $12 (originally $49)

The emotional and physical energy of weddings makes for good photography, but a wedding photographer does more than simple, passive documentation of the revelry. Great wedding photography immortalizes the story of the event by combining a mastery of technical skills in a highly dynamic environment, and the social skills to put people at ease and capture genuine moments.

Join Rocco Ancora and Ryan Schembri for this in-depth class on wedding photography and powerful storytelling. You’ll learn:

  • The fundamentals of shooting a wedding — lighting, exposure, and composition.
  • How to maximize the use of natural and artificial light to create the mood.
  • What to do once the wedding is over — image culling, album development, and sales.

This class places heavy emphasis on developing strong posing and direction techniques and deploying them in a natural, non-confrontational manner. Rocco and Ryan believe that the job of the wedding photographer is to understand the story of the evening and to document it as a journalist would, with technical confidence and the mind on storytelling. All levels of wedding photographers will benefit from this class.
