With COVID-19 cases rising, many gyms aren't operating at full capacity — and, in all honesty, they probably won't be for quite some time. Since quarantine began, many people have felt uncomfortable with attending in-person exercise classes or going to the gym, even with social distancing restrictions and increased sanitizing procedures in place. Enter: the rise of at-home, online workout classes. One popular workout type? Barre classes, which are inspired by the low-impact, full-body work that’s done in ballet. Full of health benefits and easy to practice from home, barre workouts need to be part of your regimen.
