If we’re friends on Facebook, then you might’ve seen my post about how my anxiety is getting the best of me these days. I asked for recommendations from my friends and was bombarded with responses.
The main takeaway is that exercise is your friend in times of social-distancing and staying safer-at-home. The best news is there are ways to still support your local favorite gym and fitness studio while getting your workout on from the comfort of your home.
Here are a few favorites:
☮️ Orlando Power Yoga has been my go-to yoga studio for over a decade now. OPY teachers are streaming classes on its YouTube channel, Facebook Live and Instagram stories. Kelly and crew, I see you and miss you!
☮️ Full Circle Yoga is another favorite and is offering Livestream yoga classes through the Mindbody app. Classes are $10 unless you’re a member, then they’re free with your membership. (Say hi to my favorite teachers, Sarabeth and Bianca.)
☮️ Warrior One Yoga is hosting live and recorded classes, including some free ones. There’s also a free daily live zoom meditation at 9:05 a.m. and a live plank perseverance party every day at 5:55 p.m. We need both. Thanks for the tip, Christine!
👯 Pure Barre has launched a Pure Barre On Demand channel and has plans starting at $29.99 a month. Try it before you buy it with a free trial. As a member, live classes are available through Zoom. (Shoutout to Mel and Danielle for the rec!)
💪 Orangetheory is posting a new workout to its site daily. They’re 20-30 minutes long and are currently totally free. (Thanks for the head’s up, Celina!)
🏋️ Camp Gladiator has a program called Hustle From Home and my friends Maria and Andrew swear by it. The live workouts are offered 2-3 times a day on Facebook and are totally free.
🚲 Rukus Cycling is also stepping up and providing free on-demand classes that aren’t just limited to cycling. There are HIIT, yoga and dance classes available, just download the RukusApp and select RukusLive.
