Avoiding the Gym Due to Coronavirus Concerns? Here Are 8 Exercise Routines You Can Stream at Home
The coronavirus has taken the world by storm, and with so much uncertainty and unrest, the federal as well as local governments and health officials are advocating for social distancing. This means that simple activities such as going to school, going for a quick dinner or running simple errands have been disrupted.
