Richmond Local and Nationwide Gyms offering FREE Virtual Classes | Richmond Moms

 

With each passing day, more and more businesses, restaurants, stores and gyms are closing down, some without even a re-open date yet. Most Richmond area schools have closed until at least March 30th (see our screen free activities post here), but as more school systems in the country extend their closures, there’s a good chance schools will also stay closed longer. But even so, many of us are home with our kids for the next 2 weeks at a minimum and if you’re like me, after day 2 of being home, you might be going a little stir crazy, so I thought I’d put together a list of gyms, local and nationwide, that are doing FREE Virtual Classes.

 

Note: Please comment or email us if you hear about more that are not included! I’ll be adding to this list regularly as more gyms offer the option, so please note this post is an ongoing work in progress, but I didn’t want to waste time creating a complete and comprehensive post because a) things are changing daily and b) some of you may already be feeling a little stir crazy and could benefit from this information sooner rather than later. Thank you all!
