Free online workout classes from yoga to cardio during the coronavirus
If you’re like us, you’re going stir-crazy while being homebound due to the coronavirus outbreak, and the more you sit on the couch, the more you want to find ways to work out. Here are a few options for online workouts:
24 Hour Fitness
This chain has closed all of its 440 gyms around the country, but members and non-members can maintain their fitness through its free personalized training app, 24GO. The app will ask you a few questions about your fitness goals, and it provides access to more than 1,500 workouts and content tailored to your needs. Some streaming workout options on other sites are focused on body weight movements, but this one will ask what equipment you have at home and will share workouts to make use of what you have.
24 Hour Fitness also is developing a touch-free check-in procedure for when clubs reopen, because their check-ins previously involved a fingerprint scan.
One of the country’s largest gym chains is offering free home “work-ins” on Facebook Live daily at 5 p.m. MDT. Previously streamed workouts are available on the Facebook page. Workouts are open to anyone, including those who aren’t Planet Fitness members, and typically last around half an hour.
Peloton became a national phenomenon with its online community cycling workouts, but its app provides access to thousands of live and on-demand, full-body workouts that do not involve a bike. A description on the website says they cover a mix of running, strength, toning, yoga, meditation and outdoor workouts, adding that they include live studio workouts in New York City and London. Peloton is currently offering new users free 90-day trials.
Daily Burn, a virtual workout site with monthly subscriptions, is currently offering a free 60-day trial. Daily Burn’s website touts its energetic, full-body group workouts available for all fitness levels.
After entering details about you and your fitness goals, Daily Burn says it will tailor programs for you, including a schedule of workout videos to follow and nutrition plans. Class options include intro to exercise, cardio strength, yoga basics, barre, muscle building, beginner Pilates, cardio kickboxing, high-intensity training and flexibility.

Two days after closing locations nationwide last week, Orangetheory began posting daily workouts on its website. According to the website, Orangetheory will share daily 30-minute workouts featuring top coaches from around the world. You won’t need special equipment, but you might be asked to scrounge up some household objects to use in your workout. Thursday’s video included five blocks including warm-up, some cardio and flexibility focusing on legs.
Camp Gladiator is a four-week outdoor group fitness program for all levels led by certified personal trainers with more than 4,000 locations nationwide. This fee-based program has launched free live at-home workouts on its Facebook page, three times a day on weekdays and once on Saturdays. Previous workouts are available on the Facebook page as well. You can also download printable 30-minute workouts from its website.
ClassPass, a subscription service that ordinarily enables users to visit a variety of boutique fitness studios, also hosts a library of virtual workouts. Right now, those 2,000+ audio and video workouts are free for everyone, no subscription required.
The yoga franchise — which has 18 studios in Colorado, most in the Denver area — is offering free access to a “special weekly collection” of online classes. “Please share this with friends, family and anyone who could use a little yoga in their life right now,” Corepower Yoga said on its website.
Movement Climbing + Fitness
All of Movement’s gyms and climbing walls may be closed, but head to the company’s Facebook page, where trainers from Movement locations around the city are posting live, free daily workouts recorded in their own homes.
