What is the best way to stay fit during COVID-19? Show more Show less
Back to question

Being mandated to stay inside for extended periods mean that opportunities to keep fit during the COVID-19 epidemic are limited. As we suffer from greatly reduced access to activity and move to a largely sedentary lifestyle, how can we make sure we stay fit?

Indoor fitness Show more Show less

As gyms close, your house can become your gym - with the added bonus of no sweat-drenched equipment or athlete's foot from the showers.

At home fitness classes

Numerous services host fitness classes virtually, meaning you can get the encouragement of an instructor while social distancing.

The Argument

Gyms attracted plenty of people on a regular basis during pre-COVID circumstances. Even then, the warm, humid environment in most gyms mixed with the general disregard for a proper machine cleaning regimen basically transformed gyms into large incubators for germs to spread. Now, during quarantine (self-induced or not), the best way to stay fit is through online classes provided by either a local gym or a corporate gym service. Classes provided by either a local gym or a corporate fitness service such as Peloton will provide fitness seekers with top-notch, caring instructors that will give you a full work out while keeping you as close to the real thing as possible. Participating in online fitness classes allows a person to continue with their workout schedule while continuing to abide by social distancing rules.
