With the national stay-at-home order extended to at least April 30th, it’s normal to feel a little stir crazy. You can try calming your mind with meditation but moving your body can also do wonders for your mental wellness. Going outside for a walk or run is one way to get in the 150 minutes of physical activity per week as recommended by experts. But if that’s not possible, the good news is that plenty of your favorite workout studios are streaming modified versions of their classes. Some are bodyweight based while others may require weights from time to time. Whether you’re a fan of boxing, HIIT, or dance cardio, below are some of our favorites that’ll get your heart pumping.

If You Miss Boxing: Rumble

What it is: Fans of Rumble know they’re great for intense yet fun boxing-based cardio workouts. While you can’t hit the punching bag at home, the studio’s instructors are doing daily shadow boxing-based HIIT and area-focused workouts for their followers. Their IG Live schedule drops every Sunday but you can always catch up at your own convenience on their Instagram.

Where to find it: On their Instagram, @doyourumble.

How much does it cost: Free!

If You Want a Fun Challenge: Cycle House

What it is: Not in the mood to commit to a full workout? Every week the West Hollywood spin studio is offering up short challenges on their Instagram. The most recent involves holding a plank for three minutes while another features a five minute arms session with founder Nichelle Hines.
