While we all practice social distancing, it’s important to stay away from crowded spaces like gyms. But it’s also important to keep taking care of yourself by staying active. We love group fitness classes not just for the workout, but because of the sense of community and ritual that comes with heading to your regular classes and seeing familiar faces. To help maintain some level of normalcy in your daily routine throughout 2020, some of your favorite studios are offering online workouts and digital classes streaming right into your home, many at discounted rates.
It’s important to stay active right now for a few reasons, says Rondel King, MS, an exercise physiologist at NYU Langone Health. “Social distancing shouldn’t hinder your physical activity—work out at home, use the environment as your playground, get creative,” he says. “Staying active can help take your mind off the pandemic and help alleviate the stressors at this time.”
COVID-19 has prompted many studios and apps to offer discounts on preexisting streaming services, or to tap into the streaming game for the first time. You’ll want to bookmark this link. Below, find some of the best fitness streaming services and free classes you can take at home.
