In the past, I haven't been one of those people that makes it to the gym on the regular, I prefer to get outside and run, hike, or snowshoe.

In January I began attending a spin class at our local rec center, and I was hooked.

It wasn't just about the calorie burn and the insane amount of sweat (though don't get me wrong it's an amazing workout) it was about the ladies in the class with me.

In between huffing and puffing, we would vent about #MomLife, or work stress, or chat about what we were watching on Netflix.

Based on my social media feed, I'm not the only one currently missing my "gym family."

In this time of CLOVID-19 induced quarantine, we're all missing someone and struggling to stay away from the baked goods (just me?).

While I know some gyms are doing virtual Zoom workouts, this wasn't an option for me.

So, about two weeks into #QuarantineLife I found a great solution to this unique problem.

Once a week I set up a FaceTime date with two of my best friends from High School.

We chat and catch up for the first few minutes...and then we do a yoga or HITT workout together.

It's good for the soul AND body.

Not sure where to start?

Here is a beginner HITT workout that works for any fitness level.
