Gyms might be opening up across the country but if you’re anything like us, you’re probably feeling a little hesitant to go back into an environment that is notorious for spreading germs. If lockdown has taught us anything it’s that a daily sweat is non-negotiable, and you certainly don’t need a gym to do it.
It can undoubtedly be hard to stay committed to at-home workouts with so many distractions around and the fact you’re only accountable to yourself. Luckily, there’s a long list of incredible of online classes, both live and on-demand, that can get your body motivated to move. Not only do you have the freedom to workout whenever, or wherever you want, you don’t have to worry about schlepping a bag to the gym and contending with the risk that comes with it right now.
Here are some favourites…
Shelter On Demand
Unfortunately, you miss out on the tranquil atmosphere of Shelter’s Double Bay studio however their online classes are as good as the real thing. They offer multiple membership options that range from prices per class to weekly memberships for their Ride, Sculpt and Strength classes. Their live-streamed classes come packed with the same high-beat energy of their in-studio classes and they also have a range of on demand classes you can choose to complete whenever it suits you.
This Is Yoga Live Streaming
My favourite yoga studio has taken their class schedule online, and even though their studios are now back and operating again I find it way more convenient doing my daily yoga from the comfort of my own living room. This is Yoga have a great selection of daily classes live streamed plus a catalogue of on demand classes in case you can’t make a scheduled live-streamed class. For just $20 per week for full access to all the online classes I think it’s a bargain!
