Many of us are still working out at home—and there are definite benefits. “It truly is the best of both worlds to have that consistent connection that makes you feel so good, with the added benefit of the flexibility in taking the class any time of day you want, wherever you want,” says Cindy Sites, founder and owner of Greenwich Barre Studio in Greenwich, CT, which is open, but has continued to offer daily 60-minute virtual classes that are available for download.
Virtual studios have also opened, like Superhuman Soul, which launched in April. “Superhuman Soul weaves together the disciplines of yoga, fitness and martial arts,” says co-founder Jennifer Netrosio, who finds that benefits to virtual workouts include accessibility, privacy and community. “With our $29.99 monthly unlimited offer, our members are regularly attending classes together and forming bonds,” she says.
