Right now, fitness is safer outdoors or in highly ventilated, open spaces. While gyms across the country continue to shut down in response to COVID-19 concerns, local fitness studios are providing creative ways to teach classes in a socially distanced manner. If you’re looking to move your body while practicing social distancing, try these summer workouts.
Washington Park’s Workout on the Green Series
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, from 6-8 p.m. Washington Park hosts free workout classes taught by trained instructors. All classes adhere to social distancing guidelines by maintaining at least six feet of distance between participants and encouraging mask-wearing. The class offerings range from pilates with the Cincinnati Ballet to Pure Barre on Wednesday evenings. All classes are organized by 3CDC and sponsored by First Financial Bank. Since space availability is limited, classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
