Taking walks, riding bikes and going for a run can help kick things off, but if you’re really missing the early morning gym sessions or your regular fitness classes, we’re grateful that many local studios are now offering them online. And for those of you who are just looking for something to do, now’s the time to fit in a workout. It’ll keep your energy levels up throughout the day, and your spirit boosted.
Check out the digital classes below, which are easily accessible from your home and social-distancing approved. A special thank you to our community for adapting quickly to these unprecedented changes and coming together to support each other in different ways.
