The bike ride to work every morning, the walk to the subway, all of those daily routines to get at least a bit of exercise every day are missing when you work from home. Our journeys are mostly limited to the few steps from our work-desk or kitchen table to the coffee machine. Admittedly, it's not easy to motivate yourself to do sports and exercise on your own. That's why we've put together a collection of great offers from Berlin studios and trainers. Ready, set, go! (Please note, that many of the trainings are in German language only.

Tip 1: Have fun together: Stadtbewegung (Urban movement)

Under the motto "The city is our sports ground", the Stadtbewegung association invites everyone to move together and have fun. The diverse - partly subsidised - offers range from Qui Gong to Calisthenics. Currently, of course, there are numerous virtual courses. As far as the lockdown and the weather permit, training also takes place outside. The aim is to motivate each other. Maybe you would even like to start your own group.

Twice a day, rbb streams varied fitness lessons on Facebook, YouTube and of course on its own website. From power training to family sports to yoga: With the campaign "Der rbb macht Fitness" (rbb does fitness), the radio station motivates you with two daily streams to exercise at home. Incidentally, rbb also cooperates with the Landessportbund and gets local trainers in front of the camera who would otherwise be left without jobs due to the closure of many halls.

Tip 8: Circles: Self-defence for everyone

You want to catapult your fitness level to a new level? The 7 circles, the Berlin academy for martial arts and body awareness, shows you how you can work on your movements without a "real" partner. Because if you really want to be able to defend yourself in an emergency, you should be so familiar with the sequences that your body performs them almost automatically. Here, too, practice makes perfect.

And of course you can find highlights of ALBA games and basketball tutorials on the YouTube channel.

Jump into fitness! On Facebook, the trainers of the jumping room show you how to stretch and jump properly. This actually works without a trampoline. And if you want to train something specific, just write a comment. 

The editors of Kinderleicht.Berlin have put together a few tips for you on how to get your children moving at home. And for those of you who miss the trips to the jumping room.
