People are antsy to get back to their normal exercise routines, but many are left wondering how risky going to a gym is right now. Early evidence shows COVID-19.

You should also wear a cloth face mask in class. (Considering the importance of social distancing, indoor group fitness classes aren’t your safest bet at this point. If group workouts are your thing, stick to classes held outdoors or online for now.) If you decide it’s time, here’s what you need to know to stay as safe as possible.

There are a few surface-level reasons not to join a fitness class, though. With so many participants, it can be hard for an instructor to give everyone enough individual attention to ensure you’re.

Signs you’re taking a class from a bad group fitness instructor. A bad group fitness instructor does the following Puts on the music and begins the class with zero introduction. People are about to follow your voice, moves and lead for anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, so they at least deserve to have a hello. As anyone who’s ever been to a spin, HIIT, or yoga group fitness class knows—especially if you’re in a crowded town with a favorite teacher—there’s not much social distancing going.

  • People with cancer are the bravest people I have ever seen. God bless them all, and show great mercy my Lord. We all need your Devine mercy.

  • God bless you for doing this and sharing it with us. I am over 50 and very out of shape. I have been following this video for the last four days and I am up to eight minutes now. I will continue to do whatever I can every day and increase it when my body is ready. God bless the beautiful participants in your class. They inspire me each time. Especially the beautiful lady in blue.

  • I was cured from Herpes after using the medications I got from Dr. Umoru who I came across on YouTube. https://youtu.be/ULBleIzhgiEI

  • I can’t thank you enough for sharing this video! Especially during a pandemic when many of us are limiting our exposure. I do these exercises every day (with my grown son! Lol!) after having a lump & lymph nodes removed, 25 radiation treatments, and now lymphedema in my breast. I’m using an ace bandage at night & sports bra during the day, but I’d like to ask about these protein deposits settling on & off in the bottom of my breast? My doctor doesn’t seem concerned but I’ve heard little about it from others. Thanks!��

  • Tono’s workouts are all really great for a full workout of all muscle groups. She has really kept me going through these long weeks of lockdown and raised my spirits too. Many thank you Tono.

  • Hi…im nesrine from algeria.. i have breast cancer just finished my chemo and i”ll start radiotherapy next week… please can i join you even from my country or it’s impossible.. waiting for answer

  • Hi Tona, Great workout! I really enjoyed your music selection on here also. I’m a senior fit instructor myself and always looking for new ideas. By any chance, can you tell me what bpm this music playlist is? Thank you!

  • I would love it if all lymph oedema nurses were given time to do classes like this….it is so good…and it really helps!! Thank you!! ��

  • When were these interviews? I thought research has now shown that just breathing in the same area as someone with covid can cause it to spread? Therefore heaving breathing combined with a fan or AC can cause others to also breath in those particulates. My local gym said that face masks are not required, but full gloves are.

  • Excellent construction incorporating cardiovascular training with resistance training. Good transitions and very clear instructions.

  • I’ve just found this video and I’ll be doing it every day. Already overweight, so terrified of arms getting any bigger through lymphoedema. Thank you for posting it.

  • Hi Tona. What a fun workout! Thank you for sharing this. I have just started a senior fitness class at my studio (www.goodhealthisahabit.com) and found your video as I was looking for ideas. What tempo music (beats per minute) did you use for this class? I am new to teaching a class in this format. Thank you!

  • I regularly go to Silver Sneakers. With the recent heat wave, I chose to do this at home in the AC. Loved it. My only complaint is that she nevers sits down until the cool down at the end. I sat when I need to. Her other are more “sitting friendly”.

  • The coronavirus has caused our exercise business to close, so we can’t go to to our Silver Sneakers classes. Your videos for seniors are a perfect at home replacement. Thankyou!

  • Love this workout Tona! Look fwd to doing it. Can you clarify a bit about the ball. The diameter & whether it’s weighted. Thank you.

  • Tona, you are not really on the beat and your cueing is not timed well. You are lovely and just need a seasoned instructor to work with you.

  • I have been doing this exercise class for the last 10 months, morning and evening I know this class has helped me get through my  day, at the age of 77 I have never had problem with joint pain or lymphoedema  still managed to stay at work 3 days a week, you have to persevere and not give up. Thank you so much.

  • After 2 months of near isolation due to Corona, accompanied by a strong desire to keep fit, I have exercised using hundreds of different YouTube videos, in search of one that is comprehensive and challenging, yet appropriate for seniors. This one is perfect! And for icing on the cake..the instructor is lovely and the tunes from our youthful days so much fun! Thank you!

  • Thankyu very much for ua instruction….hv get solution for my breast hv been swelling offenly n hv been giving me lots os headache not knowing what to do

  • Can we have more clarity on what is the liability issues that we may face by teaching virtual classes? If we are doing live public streaming, can we still include liability waiver/disclaimer/copyright notification? And is there a sample specific for online virtual fitness classes?

  • What the f…..ck thought i will try this those older people must be really fir or this was stopped allowed them to rest and contiue great editing tona barnes you are very wicked to old people ����������������������������and this young one tooo

  • Hello, je suis française, et malheureusement je ne peux comprendre toutes les indications de Tona lors de ces séances pourriez vous traduire ces consignes en Français, Merci LOUISE ❤️

  • Due to medico-legal concerns and the sheer number of questions I receive from these videos, I can no longer answer questions left in the comments. If you have a medical issue and would like more information, go to https://www.drdavidgeier.com/resources/ for other ways I can help you.

  • What a wonderful daily excersice! Thank you so much ladies, you are helping me through a difficult time. Now that my fysiotherapist cannot treat anyone, due to the corona lockdown in my country (The Netherlands), I needed to treat my lymphedema myself. Using your video once or twice a day keeps it under control nicely. And at the end of the video I wave at you all, with a smile on my face, thanking you for your help. Stay fit, wash your hands, namasté.

  • Thank you so much for this class online. I’m on my radiotherapy now, and don’t have the time to go to the physiotherapy classes, so thank you for this. I start my days with you!

  • This is exactly what I was looking for. Many of the videos have the instructions but move on before I can get in the amount of repetitions. And I still need to see the exercises to make sure I am doing them correctly. Thank you for this format♥️

  • HI, I found some of your videos and I’m delighted. I haven’t been able to exercise to any depth for about 5 years. I began to finally recover my health this year. It has been a slow process. Now I can do real exercise with you. I can last a little over half of the video before I go to the cool down. I use the lightest of weights and the easiest band, but I’m able to participate! I look forward to the time when I can complete a whole video and then slowly increase my weights.

  • Where are you getting the training aids; the weights, resistence band and exercise ball? Like very much you show everyone working out with you. It encourages me, a 65 yr old double knee replacement sedate over weight senior. This vlog I will try!!!
    Well done!
