Free Online Workout Videos – Exercising During the Caronavirus Shutdown
We are sad that we had to close our doors, but we understand how social distancing is important for the Philadelphia region to stay safe, so we immediately complied with the governors orders that non-essential businesses close, including gyms.
Even though social distancing is vital during this time, it can be tough mentally, making mood-enhancing exercise even more important than normal. Although our gyms are closed right now and you’re probably stuck at home, that doesn’t mean you should stop exercising. Fitness is a big part of beating cabin fever and maintaining mental health.
So, how can you keep fit if you can’t or choose not to leave your home?
While some of our fitness class instructors are streaming workouts on AFC’s Facebook page from their homes, these workouts will be limited because instructors’ responsibilities, like kids and family, come first.
There are many free online workout options for members who want to continue their fitness during the shutdown. Even though you don’t get the social support and energy of being in a session with classmates, you’ll find a guided session on your phone, laptop or smart tv can help you get through these times.
Check out the list of free online workouts below:
