Stay Active Indoors with Free Virtual Workouts
Our fitness center and gyms around the city are closed to help keep us all safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get a great workout in!
Being stuck inside all day can be tough on your mind and your body, so it’s great to find ways to get moving and stay active from your own apartment. Lots of local fitness studios are offering virtual workouts to help you get your sweat on, safely.
This is an especially great time to try out something new, without the intimidation of an in-person class. If you don’t have much (or any) equipment in your apartment, there are plenty of ways to be creative and work with what you’ve got! Canned veggies can serve as makeshift dumbbells, or you can use a towel if you don’t have a yoga mat. Whether you are a newbie or a pro, getting a workout in is a great way to feel good and work off the pent-up energy well all have during this stressful time.
