It’s been an unsettling time both physically and mentally for all of us. With the restrictions of social distancing in place, all of the city’s studios, gyms, and wellness places have now closed shop.
Kansas City fitness trainers, studios, and gyms have come together to offer a variety of virtual classes via Zoom, Instagram Live, Facebook Live, YouTube, and other services. Some services are free and others accept donations or charge a fee.
