As gyms and fitness classes across the country close their doors to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, it’s up to us to make sure we keep ourselves healthy in the meantime. Thankfully, working out from home has gotten much easier as fitness apps and personal trainers are providing free lessons to help us all stay healthy during the pandemic.

Before starting any new exercise routine, always remember not to push yourself too hard if you aren’t feeling well — your health and safety come first. But if you’re ready to turn your living room into your gym, take a look through these options to see which fitness routine is right for you.


The P.volve fitness platform is committed to safe, functional, movement-based methods to help you achieve the results you want. Sounds like the perfect program for a crowded studio apartment. Even more perfect? They’re offering a free 30-day stream trial of their services during our period of self-isolation.

If you’re still curious about their services, check out their YouTube page to see what some of their post-workouts look like.
