With most of us staying home as much as possible during the pandemic, it’s all too easy to become one with our couches— not the best way to boost our immune system when we need it most. Luckily, there are lots of ways you can keep a consistent fitness routine without leaving your home. We made a list of five local fitness hubs that have online classes (some of which are free) so that you don’t miss a beat with maintaining your health and wellness.
Go M.A.D. Fitness Toledo has free videos from their trainers you can follow from home that will definitely help you get your sweat on! Think high-energy Insanity and Mad Zone Circuit classes, but also intermediate yoga classes that will keep you both fit and zen.
