Almost two years ago, the COVID-19 pandemic changed our world. We have been in limbo waiting to see how and when our “new normal” will shake out. Some things may change, but some may be here to stay. Virtual fitness is one of the things that has been popularized during the pandemic that I believe is here for good.
This is a good thing! This gives people access wherever they are to all kinds of fitness and wellness options. This helps close a gap when it comes to a person’s proximity to fitness opportunities. I am fortunate to have a yoga studio within minutes from my house. When the pandemic hit, they went virtual, and now have people from all over the country tuning in to classes. You no longer have to live close to a particular gym or studio to reap the benefits or try something new. Classes range from very general to very specific. If you decide you’re interested in kickboxing classes, but there are no kickboxing classes close by, no big deal! There are plenty of virtual kickboxing classes that you can sign up for.
This is a great opportunity for you to try something new, even if it is out of your comfort zone or not physically close. Below I have listed some of the types of fitness classes are offered virtually. Try something new without ever leaving home!
- Yoga (including kids yoga)
- Walking workouts
- Stretch and core classes
