Best at-home workout apps: Discounts and what to know amidst coronavirus

(NEW YORK) — Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many people around the world are self-isolating, which in turn has resulted in an uptick of at-home workouts.

On Monday, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut governors announced that gyms have been ordered to close at 8 p.m. EST. in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.

“We have agreed to a common set of rules that will pertain in all of our states,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. “So don’t even think about going to a neighboring state thinking there’s going to be a different set of rules.”

Additionally, popular boutique fitness studios, as well as personal trainers, have continually made efforts to abide by CDC guidelines encouraging social distancing.

Nike Master Trainer Kirsty Godso posted and demonstrated a five-minute “Glider Workout” routine on Instagram.

“Resharing + sharing more of some of my favourite ways to stay calm and confident during this time in the comforts of your home,” Godso said in a caption.
