Sacramento Area Fitness Studios With Online Workouts + Apps
During this time of social distancing, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to maintain our day-to-day routines. One of the most important routines is exercising. Never before has staying healthy been more important, and part of that is keeping our bodies moving. With gyms and fitness studios closed, it can be difficult to maintain our workouts as per usual. Luckily, many studios throughout the greater Sacramento area have moved their classes online. From yoga to spinning, Pilates to lifting, there are plenty of online options to get your heart rate up and your blood pumping. Following are some of the best online workouts and exercise classes hosted by local gyms and fitness studios in the greater Sacramento area, as well as suggestions for free, app-based workouts.

In-studio classes typically use special equipment, but the virtual classes offered by Nephesh Pilates in East Sacramento are mat-based, so you can tone up using props you may already have on hand, like weights and resistance bands.
