There seems to be some deja vu in the air as our gyms closing – again. While it can be frustrating to go through yet another period of gym closures, this doesn’t mean that you have to forego your daily fitness routine.
These six gyms are offering free online classes for you to follow along at home, so you can still keep up with your daily yoga sessions or stay in shape and not lose your abs for the next month.

On their IGTV, they have a Barry’s At Home series where the workouts range from 15-30 minutes with most requiring no equipment at all. So there’s literally no excuse for you not to workout at home. Stay tuned for their timetable which starts the week of 10th May 2021.
It’s easy to put off exercising when we’re staying at home for an entire month. To keep our minds and bodies active, we should aim to move for about 30 minutes a day.
From HIIT and bodyweight exercises to yoga and dance classes, these gyms will have your back and keep you in tip-top shape.
