Staying Fit, While Staying Home

Mar 15, 2020 by

As humanity continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, national and local governments continue to roll out regulations and travel bans that have effectively put the world on hold in many areas as the full scope of the pandemic unravels. Individuals and small businesses are (wisely) taking matters into their own hands by practicing “social distancing,” and self-quarantining to help mitigate the spread of the virus.

Class closed: Many industries are taking a hit, and the fitness industry isn’t exempt from that. CrossFit affiliates all over the world are closing temporarily, and some risk closing permanently due to the loss of business. For many, their usual CrossFit class may not be available for the foreseeable future, but it doesn’t mean that training and fitness has to fall by the wayside.

Online coaching and programming companies are taking the opportunity to adjust their offerings to cater to those staying at home during the pandemic. There is also a handful of “OG” garage gym oriented companies as well that are focused around home workouts.

  • Street Parking – The most recognizable home gym workout program in the space is offering discounted memberships through May 1st.
  • Comptrain – Will be offering FREE at-home workouts via SugarWOD, adding one new workout per day.
  • NCFit – Providing FREE at-home versions of their NC30 program starting today.
  • Annie Thorisdottir – Offering a year-long membership for programming at a 50% discount through the NEOU app.
  • Kari Pearce – Her PowerAbs™ program was 50% off until Sunday March 15, keep your eyes peeled in case the discount gets extended.

Down, but not out: Additionally, as affiliates are having to shutter for the time being, they’re shifting gears and continuing to offer their services to their members — and anyone else interested — while staying home.

An important message: Affiliates will undoubtedly struggle, and some may even go out of business. Midday Sunday Julie Foucher-Urcuyo, MD, MS, posted to her instagram a lengthy message chock-full of valuable information including an appeal to keep paying your membership fee if possible.

No matter your fitness level, there are plenty of options to keep your training going during this time of uncertainty. Be smart, stay healthy, and be kind to others.
