Ella Castle

If you want to strengthen your core, improve your balance, and work out from home — all in front of a good TV show — look no further than the Gradient Fitness Wobble Board ($30). I’ve had this piece of exercise equipment for the past two years, and it remains one of my favorites because of its versatility, easy storage, and core targeting.

That’s why it can be helpful to give your phone a time-out on the constant news refresh, and instead take a break with a virtual palate cleanser:

Review of Chris Hemsworth’s Fitness App, Centr

Ella Castle

In the fitness world, 2020 will probably be known as the year everyone discovered working out in their living rooms. As gyms shuttered due to the pandemic and at-home exercise gear sold out across the world, there was a predictable rise in at-home bodyweight workouts. But working out is hard — at least I think so. Honestly, I suck at it. I lack the motivation to get sweaty without a trainer there to catch me when I’m slacking, and without the financial accountability of a gym membership, I struggle to pull on my workout clothes and move my body.

Historically, to get the most individualized attention and assistance with your fitness regimen, you needed to turn to (and shell out for) a personal trainer. But times are a-changin’.

How will fitness studios and outdoor workouts survive Covid-19 during the winter?

In the shadow of the Vessel, the sky-scraping copper honeycomb structure in New York City’s Hudson Yards, is a huge tent full of bikes that go nowhere. In the parking lot of the Beverly Center, the famed Los Angeles shopping center, there’s a blocked-off section peppered with treadmills and benches. And this summer, the Southampton Arts Center’s west lawn was transformed into a dance-workout space.

These outdoor gyms are the new normal of group fitness.

Because companies like SoulCycle, Barry’s, and the up-and-coming dance-inspired workout FORWARD__Space haven’t been allowed to reopen in major cities like New York and Los Angeles,

As someone who spent eight years getting a master’s and a Ph.D. in public health (partially focused on health communication), some of the posts and comments I have seen floating around the ’gram from fitness or yoga accounts, quite frankly, terrify me—like that people are blowing the virus out of proportion, or that it’s not actually that big of a deal.
