Free online gym classes

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.

For more workout ideas:

Focusing on boxing and functional training, the fast-paced workouts at BoOm have grown to be a favourite among those working in the CBD. To have a taste of their highly sought after classes, you can stream their live workouts on their IGTV that were created during last year’s Circuit Breaker period. BoOm is also bringing back their virtual “Boom From Home” classes, and you can keep your eye out on them through their Instagram. These classes will cost $10 per class or $50 for a package of 10 classes.

Their signature 45-minute BoOmBox workouts are a mix of boxing and cardio exercises that will raise your heart rate. While you’re at it, change things up with their BoOmCamp circuit workouts that make use of either your body weight or light weights to sculpt those muscles.
