With the government announcing that "all unnecessary travel" should cease to limit the spread of COVID-19, the fitness industry has moved quickly.

PTs have taken to social media to make sure people can still get their workout in despite being at home.

After announcing the closure of all of their 'Red Rooms' (studios) across the country yesterday, Barry's Bootcamp powered down their treadmills and powered up their social media, running two live sessions on Instagram Live.

Another London chain offering free live workouts is functional gym The Foundry, with trainer and head of brand Laura Hoggins going live this week to whip her regulars and new-joiners into shape. If you missed it, not a problem – Hoggins shared the entire video on her Instagram.

And they're not the only ones bringing the gym/yoga studio/HIIT class to you.

If you missed those early morning sessions, then not to worry, there are plenty more live workouts to tune into yet to come.
