Covid-19 may have us cooped up at home (for now), but that doesn’t mean we need to stop moving. In fact, staying active has never been more important to keep ourselves mentally and physically fit through these challenging times. 

Move at home

Just a little movement can help melt away stress, improve sleep and boost your immune system—and it’s recommended to get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of high-intensity exercise per week (or a mix of both). 

Stay active by taking regular breaks throughout the day to channel your inner Britney, play with Fido or do the dishes. Try standing up every 30 minutes to avoid becoming part of the furniture, and rack up more steps by walking around at home or on the spot.

Take a (virtual) class

Due to local closures, gyms all over the world have started to take their classes online, sometimes even live, which is a fun way to get social. From go-with-the-flow yoga to hardcore HIIT classes, there’s literally something for everyone. Best of all, most classes work with your own bodyweight, so all you need is a mat, towel and water bottle to stay hydrated.

What are you waiting for? Slip into some Spandex and start sweating with these local gyms and yoga studios that are streaming right into your living room:
