If there’s anything we all could use right now it would be endorphins. You know, the happy hormones. The only thing that makes coming out of the gym all sweaty and sore totally worth it and making you crave more.

To help you come out of this coronavirus confident and ready to hit up all your favorite spots, here are five resources to try out. Who knows, you may have just found your new favorite workout class.
