If you swear by your 10,000-steps-a-day app, then the coro­n­avirus has surely thrown a wrench in your rou­tine. There are, nonethe­less, plenty of ways to stay in shape and avoid the temp­ta­tion of streaming Con­ta­gion like, seem­ingly, ev­ery­one else. For starters, there are lo­cal train­ers who con­sis­tently offer home workout ideas on their In­sta­gram page.

Those look­ing for cross­fit in­spi­ra­tion can check­out Omer Zuri (@omerzuri); for Pi­lates-in­spired ideas, scroll through Coral Fried­man’s feed (@coral_pi­lates); for high-in­ten­sity in­ter­val train­ing, or HITT, Maya Katzi (@mayakatzi) of­fers a ton of ideas, and Eden Hadar (@eden­hadar_yoga) is won­der­ful for yoga-in­spired work­outs.

In light of her no longer be­ing able to teach her peren­ni­ally sold-out group classes due to safety con­cerns, per­sonal and group fit­ness in­struc­tor Inna Wais­senberg (@inna.wais­senberg) has also started a daily train­ing se­ries on her so­cial me­dia plat­form. In ad­di­tion to her reg­u­lar con­tent, she is show­cas­ing a new workout ev­ery day on her IGTV, de­signed specif­i­cally for peo­ple of all lev­els to do at home with min­i­mal to no equip­ment.

Beit Hanna (@beit_hanna) a stu­dio hub for a long list of workout classes in­clud­ing Pi­lates, HITT and yoga, is also fol­low­ing suit with live classes posted to IGTV. Mean­while, on­line ath­leisure re­tailer Car­bon38 (@car­bon38) is work­ing with their am­bas­sadors – who in­clude Is­rael-based train­ers like Coral Fried­man – to offer free dig­i­tal fit­ness classes ev­ery morn­ing on their In­sta­gram Live.

To take things up a notch, sign up for a streaming ser­vice.

For a lo­cal op­tion, Boost Fit­ness in Tel Aviv has made all of their classes vir­tual. The bou­tique fit­ness cen­ter, which is closed as man­dated by the Health Min­istry, is hav­ing their in­struc­tors teach in their empty stu­dios to stu­dents who con­nect via Zoom from home.

The in­struc­tors can see and in­ter­act with ev­ery­one in their classes vir­tu­ally and in real time. For more in­for­ma­tion and pric­ing op­tions: 054-392-2223.

In ad­di­tion, the ones be­low offer free tri­als with­out any com­mit­ment, mak­ing them a per­fect so­lu­tion to stay in shape in th­ese hec­tic times. You won’t need equip­ment (though, in some cases, you can level up with dumb­bells or an­kle weights should you choose). All the op­tions are led by top-tier in­struc­tors who reg­u­larly sell out classes across the globe while train­ing celebri­ties, mod­els and in­flu­encers.

Tracy An­der­son

Free 14-day trial; $90/month

Tracy An­der­son was one of the first train­ers to offer on­line streaming op­tions for her in-stu­dio work­outs. An­der­son op­er­ates a chain of uber-lux­ury fit­ness stu­dios. Her clien­tele in­cludes Gwyneth Pal­trow and Jen­nifer Lopez, so while this is the most ex­pen­sive op­tion, it’s a tiny frac­tion of what it costs to be a mem­ber of one of her stu­dios. Her work­outs are based on ton­ing floor ex­er­cises and high-in­ten­sity dance car­dio. There are be­gin­ner and ad­vanced op­tions. tra­cyan­der­son.com

Melissa Wood Health

Free 7-day trial; $9.99/month

For slow, con­trolled Pi­lates-in­spired work­outs, check out Melissa Wood Health. She also has a num­ber of pre- and post-natal op­tions. As a mother of two young children, Wood knows how hard it is to fit work­outs into your sched­ule, so she has plenty of short op­tions. There are also guided med­i­ta­tions and tread­mill-based work­outs. melis­sawood­health.com

The Sculpt So­ci­ety

Free 14-day trial; $19.99/month

Jane DO

Free 7-day trial; $9.99/month

The work­outs in this app were de­signed by and for women, and in­clude to­tal body, car­dio-fo­cused, strength-fo­cused, body-part-fo­cused op­tions (think core-spe­cific work­outs), and more. They range in length from un­der 15 min­utes to an hour. In ad­di­tion to fit­ness, the app also of­fers a nu­tri­tional com­po­nent that in­tro­duces their fa­vorite recipes. They also fea­ture long-for­mat videos in which ex­perts in var­i­ous fields share their ex­per­tise on var­i­ous well­ness-re­lated top­ics. janedo.com ■
