It looks like we won’t be going back to our gym, at least not anytime soon. In this quarantine classification which we are currently under, more and more businesses are allowed to resume operations. However, since excessive sweating is susceptible to moisture and damp areas, fitness centers are still at high-risk for germ contamination. Meaning, it’s hard to keep safe if we were at any point looking forward to going back anytime now. Just like any of us, we can’t wait to get fully engaged to our cardio and strength routines.

As we wait for what lies ahead in the future of fitness, could it eventually be right in our own home? Ever since the lockdown has taken effect, a lot of us had to make do with working at home, recalibrating our routines to simplified and sensible versions. Now, it looks like fitness studios are following suit, partnering with us on our journey to achieving a healthier lifestyle, even helping us get through our home workouts with online sessions and for sale and for rent gym equipment.

Attend online classes

Let’s admit it, regardless of how much motivated you are to workout at home, it’s still hard to do it on your own without a calendar or pattern of routine and a professional to guide you in doing it. Even when you’re staying at home, you can up your fitness game with spin classes, strength workouts, yoga sessions, and more tapping digital platforms. How? Check our list of some of your favorite fitness spots that provides online fitness sessions while we’re still in quarantine.
