In these times, it is especially important to continue to take care of ourselves. Everybody seems to have taken up walking now that all sports and fitness activities have come to a standstill, but we need to be careful that these hiking areas don't become too busy. That's why it's great to see that many fitness entrepreneurs in Maastricht are helping us to stay fit at home! If you weren't in the mood to get active yet, then be inspired by the live videos posted by these sporty businesses. Who knows, you might just be chiselling out that beach body while you're stuck at home!
We've made a useful list of all the fitness entrepreneurs in Maastricht who are keeping busy by keeping us active at home! Beginners are welcome too!
Constance, owner of MAC SportsClub, was quick to get started with virtual classes. The gyms were among the first businesses to close, but that didn't squash her passion for fitness. Those who know Constance know that she’s brimming with energy! Every day, she posts various live classes via Facebook and YouTube. On Monday at 9:30 AM this past week, you could take part in her Body Training class. Then, an hour later, there was a special high-energy class for people aged 50 and older. Constance is also continuing with her online yoga classes, and last Tuesday you could experience a moment of zen when she posted an hour-long Hatha Yoga class. In short, there are plenty of activities on the MAC SportsClub website to keep you fit during lockdown!

Maastricht's most famous dancing school has also been forced to close its doors. But if it's up to Bernaards school of dance, we'll conquer this coronavirus crisis one dance step at a time. And we're all for it! They refused to be discouraged by this new situation and quickly discovered a new way of doing things. Now, you can release your inner dancing queen or king via their YouTube channel where they post videos ranging from dance fitness to Salsa. Move the furniture against the wall and put on your dancing shoes (or just on bare feet – you're at home!) and start moving! Maybe we'll even discover the new Fred and Ginger of Maastricht during this period. Make sure to share your videos on our social media channels! Explore Bernaards' YouTube channel here!
