5 Virtual Studios You Need to Know About RN

In the weeks leading up to spring break, I was excited to eat a lot, sleep a lot, return to campus and get back into a routine at the gym to finish the year strong physically, mentally, and academically. Over the course of a few days, everything rapidly changed leading to online classes and closures on and off campus like restaurants, stores, and gyms. The flexibility of online classes has been nice in some respects, like sleeping in every day, and not so nice in others, such procrastinating more than usual and not being able to go to a more productive space. The biggest thing I’ve been struggling with is not moving as much on a daily basis as I’m used to. I never realized how taking however many thousands of steps in the fresh air every day enhanced the good days and improved the bad. Due to spring showers preventing me from spending time outside, I turned to researching various fitness studios to see what kinds of resources they’re offering in order to keep people moving at home, and this is what I found!

  1. CorePower Yoga – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4z1_0UdNR70GZE9eGuDY_VlQBE78ebQ8https://www.corepoweryogaondemand.com/keep-up-your-practice?utm_source=cpy&utm_medium=yod-get-started
    1. Since high school, this has been my all-time favorite yoga studio (s/o to yoga sculpt for making me aware of how much sweat my body is able to produce in an hour). They’re a studio based out of Colorado, but they’ve spread all across the country and offer the best range of classes for beginners, intermediates, and beyond. During this time, they’re offering yoga on demand where everyone has access to 20, 30, or 60-minute sessions of their C1 (beginner), C2 (beginner-intermediate), Sculpt (the best and the worst thing I’ve ever done), and Hot Power Fusion. In addition to the classes, they’re also livestreaming classes on YouTube!
  2. Orange Theory Fitness – https://www.orangetheory.com/en-us/athome/
    1. Another high school stomping ground, Orange Theory Fitness is a studio that offers hour-long classes, half of which is spent focused on cardio and the other half is focused on weight training. While most people are stuck at home, Orange Theory is posting a workout video on their website every day that varies between upper body, lower body, core, and full body workouts.
  3. Feel Better Yoga – https://feelbetteryoganc.com/fby-online-yoga
    1. This small yoga studio in Burlington, North Carolina is also offering online yoga classes. They offer tons of videos varying from 5-60 minutes whether you just want a quick burst of movement or a full escape from homework. FBY has a wide variety of classes ranging from classes focused on stretching for when you’re tired, yoga for athletes, power yoga, slow flows, chair yoga, and more!
  4. F45 – https://f45challenge.com
    1. This Australian fitness studio has been spreading through Europe, the US and beyond (they opened a studio in Portsmouth, NH within the past couple months). They focus on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts that differ every class whether it’s focused on cardio, resistance, or a hybrid of the two. They offer a free 30-day trial which grants access to their online training sessions as well as a nutrition program. You can register for their F45 Challenge in which you can state your goal for participating (fat loss, muscle gain, or maintenance), how often you exercise, and meal preferences. It also gives you goals to hit each week like getting enough sleep, drinking a good amount of water, working out hard enough that you sweat, etc. and you can journal how you feel each day to track your progress.
  5. The Suite Studio – https://thesuitestudio.fit/
    1. Located in Dover, New Hampshire, The Suite Studio offers barre, yoga, pilates, and cardio toning classes. Right now they’re offering 30 days of unlimited virtual classes for $40!
