These Vancouver fitness studios are offering online classes

Nov 26 2020, 5:33 pm

Although fitness studios have been temporarily closed across the province, it doesn’t mean British Columbians need to stop working out.

Last week, the BC government suspended high-intensity interval training (HIIT), hot yoga, and indoor spin classes until further notice. The suspension applies to all businesses, recreational centres, and other organizations that operate the activities.

The province’s website also states that “venues that organize or operate other types of indoor group physical activities must suspend them temporarily while new guidance is being developed. These include Gymnastics, Dance studios, Martial arts, Yoga, and Pilates.”

However, the suspension of indoor classes does not mean your fitness routines have to shut down too. A number of local studios and businesses have begun to offer online classes, giving you the perfect opportunity to keep your body moving and your mind active.

Here are several online workouts and classes to try in Vancouver while supporting local businesses:
