Sure, you can forgo dining out or shopping at the malls for a few weeks, but hitting the brakes on your gym time is a major sacrifice during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Fear not, though—some of Bergen County’s most popular gyms and fitness centers have heard your pleas and now offer online instructional classes and services for clients. Here are just five of the local places that will get you up and active while you’re confined to your casa:

Blink, Paramus and Lodi

If you’re one of those busy people who have to go to the gym before they can do anything else, Blink has the program for you—they’re going live every weekday on Facebook at 8 a.m. with guided workout classes. Look out for tips and tricks from instructors and personal trainers every morning and you’ll be set to work out on your own when their Paramus and Lodi locations reopen to the public.

Crunch, Paramus and Midland Park

The best part about Crunch LIVE, the workout video streaming service provided by Crunch Fitness? You’re able to pause and restart the pre-recorded sessions so you can get the absolute most out of your sculpting, kickboxing or dance class with zero pressure. If you’re a current Crunch member, the service is free, but non-members can access a 45-day free trial before committing to a subscription.
