As we all navigate this new normal of social distancing (opens in new tab), gym and fitness classes across the country are offering free workout classes to help us retain a little balance during the unprecedented times we're living in. Though the first few days without a gym might feel like the end of the world (I promise it's not, no matter what your Instagram feed tells you!), it's incredible to see boutique fitness classes that normally cost up to $35 per class offer free workouts from their incredible trainers simply in the name of health...and sanity.

If you're having trouble saving all of the workouts you've been seeing on the 'gram, we did it for you. Here, the best workout classes to stream from your phone or computer for a mid-day or post-WFH sweat. We’ll continue to update this list as we receive more online workout recs.

Rumble Boxing (opens in new tab) trainers are creating free HITT workouts on their Instagram feeds (see below!), in addition to the daily Instagram Live workouts (opens in new tab) on the main Rumble Instagram account. Follow the main Rumble account for a lineup of weekly workout schedules.
