Post Summary: At Home Fitness Programs You Can Do From Right Where You Are!
What a weird time we’re living in! With health-related concerns blasting the news stations, it’s pretty much all we hear about now. We know it can be a frustrating, anxiety-filled time, and Berty and I have been trying to figure out how we can provide positive resources to you guys.
This morning on Instagram (@themandagies), we reached out to our followers and asked if they knew of any virtual resources to get active and move your body at home!
We were BLOWN AWAY by the resources, businesses, and individuals that are coming together in the fitness space, and we’re excited to share our list of at-home fitness options for you here! Most of these resources are free, but you’ll also find things like free-trials and subscription-based programs, too. Enjoy!
Note: Just like the health-related news, this is an ever-changing and evolving list. By no means is this an all-inclusive list. We’re just sharing knowledge as it comes up! If you know of any virtual workouts to do at home, please add them in the comment section below!

Depending on where you live, and your ability/access to trails, one of the easiest ways to stay active is to get outside! This could be at a nearby park, trail system, or just walking around your neighborhood! If you want a little direction, here are some places to start exploring outdoor spots near you.
Special Note: During this time, we would encourage you to choose an outdoor location near your home, and opt to hike with a small group (or solo!) at this time. This way we can prevent the spread of infection and keep our communities safe!
Browse Our Site!
We are biased, but we think that our blog is full of amazing hiking options, especially for our readers based in the Pacific Northwest. We’d encourage you to browse our blog posts, and find a location that is near you to go out and explore.
National Parks Have Waived Entrance Fees
On March 18th, 2020, the National Park Service has waived entrance fees to national parks to encourage people to get outdoors. If this is appealing to you, rather than spark a last-minute trip to a bucket list park, we’d encourage you to consider visiting a national park near you, so that you can return home at the end of the day. No national parks near you? Consider a closer state park or reserve to opt-in for a solo hike.
