don't have a turbo but use my spin bike and sometimes do a YouTube class (do you do intervals and things? It could work) but there are also long vids online of mountain and beach rides and stuff that might help?
My DP uses Trainer Road and has just set up an account for me too. Doing my first turbo session today It looks like a good programme to keep motivated. I may set up my tablet to also watch something in the background too
Suzanne I have recently bought a tacx vortex smart. Initially I did find it noisy but I had cyclocross tyres on my bike at the time. I bought a specific trainer tyre and difference was incredible. I now think that the fan I have on to keep me cool makes more noise. I think if you bought a decent trainer, used a trainer specific tyre and possibly a mat underneath it (especially if on a hard floor in an upstairs flat) then you might find its ok. However all these things do add to the cost.
Mine is currently in the living room. Sounds daft but we have a kitchen/ diner/family room so the living room is hardly used. I intended to put it in the garage but that was broken into before Xmas and 2 bikes stolen so all bikes now live temporarily inside including the turbo until we have a more secure garage.
It's great because I can now cycle anytime without having to wait till dh is home. Bit of a faff as I have to change the rear tyre if I want to go outside for a ride.
DS just got a new bike for his birthday and wants to have a go so have ordered a trainer tyre to fit his bike as well.
