Some people simply can’t start their day without their regular workout, while others never seem to find the time to hit up the gym. Whichever camp you fall into, you might find that all of this time at home is making you long for the ability to blow off some steam with a great workout.
In the spirit of “we’re all in this together,” many gyms, trainers and fitness platforms have developed options to help those who are living under quarantine — as well as others like healthcare workers, who are working overtime — keep up with their workouts.
Whether you’re that agent who hits the gym before dawn to get in a daily workout or you’re just missing the steps that real estate naturally provides (and going a little stir-crazy), there’s an at-home workout for you. Ranging from high-intensity classes to meditation practices, you can find your new daily ritual with one (or more) of these.
1. Planet Fitness
Head over to Planet Fitness’ Facebook page for live, daily workouts featuring both PF trainers and special guests. These 20-minute minis are designed to keep you moving and relieve stress.
2. Underbelly Yoga
Jessamyn Stanley promotes yoga for every body, and now she’s offering two weeks of her yoga app for free when you sign up on her website. You’ll love the combination of movement, stress reduction and body positivity on this platform.
Remember how we all made fun of the Peloton Lady? Who’s laughing now? Even if you don’t have any of their equipment, you can take advantage of Peloton’s 90-day free trial. The library includes classes on “yoga, meditation, strength, cycling, running and more.”
