Things we’ve already learned from the #stayathome movement: 1) Couches are way comfier than office chairs. 2) Cauliflower pizza is the comfort food of 2020. 3) If we want to stay sane, and keep our bodies healthy in the face of illness, we’ve gotta break a sweat. But not everyone has an exercise bike or a personal trainer on Zoom (ah, to be Gwyneth…) so how exactly do we bust a move without busting our TV screen with a boxing kick gone wrong? Here’s the Newsette Guide to breaking a sweat without sweating the small stuff.

If you’re missing your yoga buddies…
Subscribe to Sky Ting TV, which is basically like your favorite art school house party… but with downward dog and tree pose. Female-founded and locally run, Sky Ting is a yoga franchise where everyone knows your name… or at least, by the end of this crazy situation, your screen name.

If you’ve always wanted to try the hot new thing…
Download the Peloton app. In order to go for a spin, (and not spin out of control), Peloton now offers a free 90-day trial instead of their usual 30. The best part? It’s not just limited to cycling classes, and you can try HIIT workouts, yoga sessions, stretching, and strength training.

If you’re feeling stir crazy… or just, you know, crazy…
Join the AArmy. This hardcore bootcamp promises serious cardio and weight sessions, along with endurance challenges and club-worthy beats. And while our Editorial Director is way too intimidated to join the intense fitness club IRL, she’ll totally try it at home while the only witness is her neighbor in the building directly across from hers (hi). Now through the foreseeable future, you can stream their workouts free on Instagram stories.

If you want some self-help along with your self-care…
Come to the be.come project, a “body neutral” workout club where all levels are welcome, all bodies are celebrated (and used as fitness models for the weekly routines), and all questions are answered by Bethany C. Meyers, the fitness guru whose Hollywood training and camp counselor vibe make everything feel okay… even those extra five push-ups.

If you’ll work out next week, promise…
Keep your eyes peeled for New York Pilates’ first-ever video workouts, where Nightly Routine legend Heather Anderson (yes, the one who has vodka for dinner) and her squad of ab-tight trainers will have you saying “thanks for the planks.” (Or at least “okay, I did planks, can I go back to the couch?”)
