Whether states are reopening or not, some businesses remain closed and will likely remain closed for a while, including gyms. Because of gym closures, many people have been trying different workout methods, from creating their own workouts to following YouTube videos, there are many different ways to stay active at home.

In our last blog, we talked about easy ways to get a workout throughout the day. However, we wanted to give you another source from great workouts. At Cypress Fitness in McLean, we are now offering virtual classes! If you miss hitting the gym and are struggling to stay active, these virtual workouts could be a great option. Be sure to sign up for our monthly virtual membership to get access to these awesome workouts!

In this blog, we are going to talk about the benefits of virtual workouts. We know that some people may have a hard time with virtual workouts or getting motivated by a video, but there are so many benefits that virtual workouts have to offer!


One of the best things about our virtual workouts is that we offer a variety of exercise types. From yoga to bootcamp to Zumba, we offer a ton of different classes that will help keep your workouts from getting boring. Just take a look through our schedule to find the classes you want to do! It can give you something to look forward to every day.

Try Something New

Since we offer a variety of different types of virtual workout classes, this is the perfect time for you to try something new. It is common that we find ourselves not trying a new workout routine or class in person because we are nervous about it or embarrassed to try. But when workouts are virtual, you can try something new in the comfort of your own home! This allows you to see if you like it before you jump into a new class when the gym opens back up.


Another huge benefit of virtual workout classes is that they are private. This allows you to focus on the actual workout and getting the most out of it rather than focusing on the people around you. It is easy to compare yourself to others, especially during a workout class. You may see people working harder or perfecting every move while you may have to do a modified version. You should be working out for you and not worry about those around you, and virtual workouts allow you to do just that. You can focus on the exercises and doing your best, whatever that may look like.

Great Workout

Virtual workouts are just as intense as group class workouts. Whether you try a yoga class or a bootcamp, you will get a great workout from it and will definitely break a sweat. You will be following a fitness class led by a pro, allowing you to get a great workout no matter which class you try.

Multiple Classes a Day

Have you ever had to choose between two workout classes in one day? When you go to the gym for a workout class, it is likely you will only stay for that class. But when you have access to virtual workout classes, you can do multiple in a day! Since you don’t have to go anywhere to do the workout and the classes are at all different times, you can do as many as you want in a day. Do yoga in the morning and Zumba in the afternoon. You no longer have to choose between classes. If you want to do two in one day, you can do two in one day without having to spend hours at the gym.

Easier to Attend

Virtual workout classes are also easier to attend then fitness classes at the gym. It is likely that when life was “normal” you hit the gym at the same time every day, either after work or before work. During these times, fitness classes may not have always been an option, which means you couldn’t enjoy the benefits of fitness classes. But now that you can join a workout class without having to leave your own home, it can be easier to make time for these classes. Even a class in the middle of your workday is easier when it is at home!

There are many benefits to virtual workout classes and while you may be missing going to the gym, our virtual fitness classes can help you stay active, stay in shape, and try something new! Sign up for a virtual membership with Cypress Fitness today!
