Full disclosure- we think Napoleon Dynamite dancing his heart out to Canned Heat might be one of the best motivators for working out ever. And with iDance’s virtual studio, it’ll be easier than ever for us to follow in his footsteps. The best part? We can bring our sweet dance moves to the club when they eventually reopen.

Maybe instead of dance or regular workouts, pretending to be Rocky is your motivator this year. Well, with Rumble boxing you’ll be able to bring that dream to life. Opt for an intense shadowboxing workout, or go with the personal training route if you already have a heavy bag for some reason.

This full-service sports performance clinic offers 2 separate online classes for recovering or developing athletes. The ‘Bazooka’ class focuses on shoulder reprogramming, while ‘Ground Control’ is about relearning movement techniques in the context of neuroplasticity. We’re out of our depth here, fitness-wise, but it does sound interesting.

Jaybird combines yoga, pilates, and barre workouts for three different levels of intensity across their classes. For the online offering, they keep a rotating selection of classes, taking out some as they add new ones each week, to help with ‘decision paralysis’. We have to admit, that sounds like it would help us.

This slow and controlled alternative to Pilates has some very devoted followers. We have to admit, the recent rise of at-home workout options like Peloton and Lululemon’s Mirror has us rethinking the cost of a Microformer ($890 USD). Even still, Lagree West offers mat-based exercises as well.

This Vancouver favourite yoga studio has a got serious online studio of workouts to cruise through. Whether you want something relaxed or a real doozy of a session, Yyoga’s knowledgeable teachers have got you covered. Perfect for those trying to limber up for the summer.

Club Row is probably the most fun workout space that you can now recreate at home. But, like Lagree, you do need access to a pretty specific piece of equipment. So, if you’re planning to dip your toes in rowing waters (which, personally, we think is more fun than biking) this is the place to start.
Cost: $14.99 USD/month, click here for more info
This North American favourite is offering online bar classes through prerecorded classes ranging from 15 to 60 minutes. And what’s even better is that they’re offering a 14 day free trial of their online classes. Who knows, you might just find your new favourite workout.
