Fitness Club Company Streams Free Home "Work-Ins"
Social distancing is making a gym workout a no-no. This company is doing their part to keep people active while they're home.
With social distancing practices being put into place to limit the spread of coronavirus, many people are finding themselves stuck at home when they'd like to be working out at the gym.
The fitness club franchise Planet Fitness announced on their Facebook page that they'll be offering free in-home workouts (or "work-ins," as they call them) via Facebook Live. "Starting Monday, tune in to Facebook Live for FREE at-home workouts for anyone and everyone. Get moving with our trainers and even some surprise celebrity guests for a 20 minute workout to relieve stress and stay active. Let's workout through this. United We Move," said their Facebook post.
"We truly believe that staying active is a great way to relieve some stress, which we could all use right now," said one Planet Fitness instructor in the company's first live stream video.
