Free Workout Streaming Services You Can Isolate With at Home
We have all been told to self isolate, as far as possible, to slow the spread of coronavirus. Solo outdoor riding (while keeping an appropriate distance from others and practicing good etiquette) or at home on a trainer (if you have one) is a great way to maintain your miles. It’s even possible to get in an effective HIIT workout for stress relief, even if you just use your own body weight. Plus, practicing yoga can help you recover after a ride or help you get your mind right and stretch out after a day of hunching over a screen, whether you’re in an office or working from home on your couch.

From trying a new HIIT session to starting up a yoga practice, these free apps will ensure you get a good at-home workout at a time you might need it most.
