Now that restaurants, bars, and other businesses in most parts of the country have closed to help slow the spread of coronavirus, you've probably found yourself at home on your couch more than usual. But just because you're social distancing doesn't mean you can't stay active. A number of fitness companies across the country are here to help.
A little yoga or pilates just might be your best bet for maintaining some semblance of sanity while cooped up. Workout studios like Barry's Bootcamp, Pure Barre, and more are offering free virtual classes so your fitness routine doesn't have to change entirely.
Here are some of the many online classes you can get it on right now:
Earlier this week, ClassPass announced its plan for coronavirus-related studio closures, including account freezes and rollover credits through June. Luckily, you can still access all your favorite workouts with the company's full library of workout videos. We're talking barre, HIIT, yoga, abs, and more -- all available online or through Google Play and the App Store.
The best part? You don't have to be a paid, pre-existing member. It's free for all. Just download the app.
If there was ever a time to get zen, it's now. And for now, you can do so right from the comforts of your own home thanks to CorePower. While the strength-focused yoga studio has temporarily closed its doors (classes will tentatively resume March 30), it's offering free access to online classes as a consolation. According to a statement released March 16, a special series of live classes will also launch March 19 for members.
For members of kickboxing chain 9Round, there's an entire library of at-home workouts. A rep for the company provided the following statement to Thrillist:
"Amid the growing concerns of COVID-19 and the many fitness club closures across the world, we have created at-home workouts that are available to all active 9Round members through the online Member Portal. We hope this will help you crush your fitness goals at home until we’re able to punch it out together again."
