Fitness centers across the country have shut down amid the coronavirus pandemic. But that doesn’t mean all exercise is canceled.
In fact, online wellness communities have existed long before quarantines were encouraged. There are hundreds of fitness influencers, workout apps and virtual classes that can be accessed from a computer, phone or tablet at home, and with minimal to zero gym equipment required.
And today, at-home workouts are also inexpensive: Much of the leading online exercise brands are offering their services for free, at least for bit.
Here’s a look at seven different types of workout programs that might interest the former gym faithful:
You like intensity and dumbbells: Sweat app
Australian fitness trainer Kayla Itsines’ women’s fitness app is hugely popular for good reason: Sweat, which is filled with her signature BBG (Bikini Body Guide) program, will give you results. (At least that’s what fans’ before/after photos shared on Itsines’ Instagram demonstrate.) These workouts will also be the cause of plenty of perspiration, so do keep up the social distancing. Her 26-minute exercises call for dumbbells and jump-rope.
Bonus: The app (available in the App Store and Google Play) is free for seven days. After that, it’s $19.99 a month.
