Crush Your At-Home Workouts with Livestream Classes, Video Libraries & Virtual Memberships
Forget about those silly New Year’s resolutions. After all, it’s not about losing ten pounds or getting ripped. The real goal is keeping your mind and body active and beating the winter quarantine slump. And even if you’re not ready to return to the gym in person, you can still support your favorite fitness center from home.
Many local gyms and studios are going virtual and bringing the workouts right to you. From on-demand video libraries to livestream classes, you’ll find yoga sessions, HIIT circuits, cardio workouts, strength training and more. Just log in, clear a space in your living room and start counting those reps.
The pandemic has been especially tough for gyms, so help out a local business and get fit while you’re at it. Check out video subscriptions and digital memberships from these NEPA fitness centers.
