Part of social distancing and self-quarantine means one thing: getting creative with getting moving

While some may now feel comfortable escaping the comforts of their home for a fresh air workout outside, others are concerned with the possible spread of the coronavirus and want to keep their workouts indoors — which can present challenges.
