Posted

In dire need of a good workout? Join the club. Due to ever-changing protocols, gyms and studios may have limited space or be closed due to COVID, but no worries – you can still get that regimen started because many offer livestream classes, small/private sessions, and
more. Virtual classes are becoming a big hit due to the convenience they offer – you can participate right from the comfort of home – so stuff those excuses in your duffle bag! If you are heading out,
be sure to register first and mask up. Provided below are 10 great places around the East Bay to help you keep that resolution. If we missed your favorite, please email Elyse@ProvidenceOnline.com and be sure to check with your PCP before starting a new routine.
