With gyms and fitness studios closing their doors in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus, many personal trainers, fitness instructors, and studios have shifted their offerings to virtual sessions. Some established online fitness programs have made select content available free of charge for workouts from home.
Heading outside for a walk, a run, or a bike ride is still permissible in most areas—and, in general, encouraged, with proper adherence to social-distancing regulations such as staying six feet away from others. But if you find yourself eager to move while you’re displaced from your gym, free online workouts from home can be excellent replacement sources—no matter if you would like to break a sweat, strength-train, keep up with your weekly yoga regime, or just unwind after working from home all day.
