The COVID-19 situation has forced most of us to forgo our exercises classes at studios and our regular gym sessions. However, we should not let the coronavirus epidemic halt our training regimes, or stop us from achieving our fitness and health goals.
In fact, now more than ever we need to step up our immunity and stay active. During these uncertain times, there are still steps we can take to boost our immunity system through certain lifestyle changes.
Stay responsible, vigilant and fit by exercising in the comfort of your own home. Here is a list of safe and affordable online exercise classes whether you are looking for yoga, Zumba and Bollywood dance sessions or looking for a live workout session with a personal trainer in Singapore.
