The global spread of coronavirus  is seeing millions heeding the recommendations made by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to practice social distancing and self-isolation to minimise or slow down the spread of the virus.

Thanks to technology, staying at home does not mean piling on those extra calories since gyms are closing down their doors amid the global scare.

Gyms, studios and personal trainers are uploading and streaming their classes online to make sure you don't miss out on a workout, meditation or yoga sessions. Some are looking to get new members by offering free classes for periods ranging from 14 days to four months for teachers and students.

Here are five to try out for  your daily dose of physical wellness:

HOME WORKOUT PARTY! 😅💪 Last video is a blooper reel of Rigatoni desperately trying to get our attention 😂🐶 . Things are crazy right now... but at least we can let off some steam by working out at home! 🙌 . Honestly I LOVE working out at a gym. The environment motivates me. Working out at home, where my couch is sooooo close 😅 #keepingitreal... is tough. But once you get going and stay focused, you can get a KILLER workout at home. . THOUSANDS of you have joined the @fitbodyapp in the last 24 hrs from the free month we’re giving away and I can’t wait to all be doing the workouts together!!!
