At this stage of the game, new schedules and ways of completing daily tasks and chores are adjusted to accommodate our new, social distancing normal. Couples are busy rescheduling their weddings, tastings, fittings and more, as most events have been cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus.

One item for couples to check off of their to-do list is getting fit for the wedding. This week, New Orleans Tidbits — a website and newsletter dedicated to events, beauty and more for the gal about town — reported eight virtual workouts by local fitness pros.

The list included Barre3, Nola Tribe Yoga, New Orleans Ballet Theatre, New Orleans Athletic Club, Sculpt New Orleans, Footprints To Fitness, Body Shoppe and Romney Studios.

This has something for everyone at any level of fitness. From the piece:


Romney Studio is offering users to test a free seven-day trial for online class streaming options. The studio offers Pilates, sculpt and bounce and new items added weekly. After the seven-day trial, the online membership is $19.99 a month.

Nola Tribe Yoga features four virtual, donation-based sessions. Each class is done virtually in real-time and you can donate via Venmo, Eventbrite and PayPal.

Footprints To Fitness gives users their first five live-stream Zoom classes for free. When you buy a membership, it will include classes of all skill levels in Pilates, weight training, cardio and more.

The New Orleans Ballet Theatre offers its Instagram followers weekly, live ballet barre classes for beginners, intermediates and advanced levels right from the theatre’s page.

The Body Shoppe has three daily live stream classes from Body Shoppe instructors. In addition to the classes there are pre-recorded, on-demand classes. The studio offers single stream buys for $10, as well as two-week unlimited classes for $60.

Barre3 has a 15-day challenge. If you complete the challenge you receive access to hundreds of streaming workouts that are uploaded on a regular basis.

New Orleans Athletic Club offers a plethora of classes scheduled weekly on Facebook Live. The group Facebook page asks that you just request to join the group. Classes are only available live and will not be posted on the page for later use. Class schedules are on the Facebook group page and new classes will be added to the schedule.

And finally, Sculpt New Orleans posts workouts every couple of days ranging from Pilates to circuit workouts directly on the studio’s Facebook page.
