Free online workouts offered during the coronavirus quarantine

As millions of Americans now sit at home, sequestering themselves to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, streaming, as well as brick-and-mortar, fitness companies are trying to keep them moving. Gyms large and small, boutique and bargain, have closed their doors, leaving millions of patrons without their usual workout spaces at a time when they very well may need them the most. With the free online workouts offered within this article, people can keep moving while staying within the safety of their homes.

Peloton, the maker of fully connected, high-end stationary bicycles and treadmills, is offering 90-days free on its app. The app can be used with any bike or tread, and the offerings also include floor workouts, yoga, and meditation classes. Instructors will be offering live classes from the company’s new Manhattan studios, but alone, without anyone else in the room.

Forte Fit launched in 2015 in New York City, putting cameras in pricey, boutique studios and streaming the classes live. It is now offering on-demand recordings of those workouts for free for one month. This includes a wide range of offerings, from boxing to HIIT (high-intensity interval training) to yoga.

The Daily Burn, which is a streaming fitness model, has a 30-day free trial period. This program is designed to make you feel like you’re in a class while your home alone: Social distancing, made more social and more healthy.
