CLEVELAND — While gyms and fitness studios throughout the state have closed, there’s still a lot of ways to get up and move.

Mary Sorma, the head trainer at Tremont Athletic Club, said since Governor DeWine ordered them to close their doors, they’ve received a lot of inquiries about at-home workouts.

“We've had a lot of people reach out you know, just cabin fever, and dealing with anxiety right now,” she said. “Knowing that exercising is an amazing way to boost their immune system, so they're saying ‘I want to keep up with my routine and I want to maybe even start exercising more now that I have this time at home.’”

Sorma and other trainers have been holding daily online classes for people via Tremont Athletic Club’s website and on the gym’s Instagram account @tremontathletic

“Movements that you can do at any level and anywhere,” she said.

They’re joining a slew of other fitness studios offering virtual classes and workouts.

If yoga is your thing, Core Power Yoga adds new classes weekly to its website

They will be free until, at least, the end of March.

Peloton has started offering a free 90 day subscription trial of its at home workout app

FItOn is another app that is free offering workouts like dance, HIIT, and yoga.

The Freeletics app offers body weight workouts for free.

Sorma said you don’t need a gym to get a good workout in, you just have to be creative.

“You can use your counter top in your kitchen, put your hands on there, do some incline push ups. You can use your body weight. You can use your couch, find a step, a table, do some step ups do a squat going down to it,” she said. “Use things around your house. If you don't have weights, use gallons of water, gallons of bleach, a broomstick to do some mobility or do some stretches for yourself, as well.”

Or, just get outside and get some fresh air.
