No gym? No problem Stay in shape inside the comfort of your home

Megan Willgoos, Managing Editor

Being stuck inside during a pandemic can be a tough time, especially when you run out of snacks to eat and TV shows to binge-watch. With gyms being closed, there isn’t much motivation to get out of bed and burn off the calories you just ate. 

Luckily, there are plenty of free, online workouts that require no equipment to keep you in shape during your social distancing. Below are a few examples.
