Staying home is important, but so is ensuring that we continue to build our immunity and stay healthy. A sustainable and healthy fitness routine shouldn’t be based on aesthetic reasons alone but also consider the wellbeing of one’s mental and physical state. For those of us used to the comradery of a fitness class or having an instructor correcting our posture during a workout, thanks to technology, there are still online fitness class options which we can turn to.
Here in Singapore, there are different fitness studios conducting live virtual classes on various platforms that allow you to have assistance during your workouts while you keep up the fitness routine at home.
