The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge toll on many businesses including fitness centers. The typical go-to of health-crazed people remains closed, as it is tagged non-essential by the National Government. Even if authorities decide to permit re-opening of these gyms soon, the allowable capacity will most probably be at 50 percent maximum. But fret not as there are fitness classes made available online by some fitness centers and practicing professionals. Here’s a look at where you can avail online gym sessions so you can exercise within the safety of your home and even help reduce the risk of being infected by COVID-19. Some are even free!
With branches both in the North and the South, many have been swayed by Electric Studio to enroll in indoor cycling.

It also comes with free online sessions hosted by the studio via Zoom.
