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. Nevertheless, here at the visitBerlin editorial office we have the feeling that we do more sports in our home office than ever before. We even tried out some new things, we very much look forward to sharing with you. Here is a collection of great offers from Berlin studios and trainers. Ready, set, go!
Flying Steps Academy
Break Dance, HipHop, Afro or Dancehall: The Flying Steps Academy is probably one of the biggest if not the biggest Urban Dance School in Germany. Currently you can find tutorials for dance beginners, online classes on YouTube and Basics and live classes on Instagram. Step it up!
Since there are many great offers we have summarized the online yoga classes and live streams in a separate blog post.
Cyberobics, the Berlin-based provider of digital fitness and aerobics classes, has unlocked its entire offer for you free of charge. Under the hashtag #ITrainAtHome you can work on your sixpacks from your living room. In total, there are 40 live classes and over 100 other classes to choose from.
Sports for Kids
The Berlin basketball team ALBA hosts daily sports lessons for children of different age groups on YouTube. The editorial staff of Kinderleicht.Berlin has written up a few tips on how to get moving with your children at home. And for those of you who miss the trips to the "Sprungraum Berlin". On Facebook, the trainers will show you how to stretch and jump properly, If you want to train something in particular, just post a comment.
7 Circles: Self-defence for everyone
Fighting while sweeping? No joke, 7 circles, the Berlin Academy for Martial Arts and Body Awareness shows you how to work on your movements in these times without a "real" partner. If you really want to be able to defend yourself in an emergency, you should be so familiar with the sequences that your body moves almost automatically. Practice makes perfect.
radioeins: "Der schöne Sport" (That beautiful sport)
At radioeins you train with Anke Schönfelder, a former Olympic participant in artistic gymnastics. She is now a qualified fitness trainer and will get you going with a daily workout.
Lauf Mama Lauf
Lauf Mama Lauf is a fitness movement initiated by Moms for Moms. The original idea is, that mothers train together in the park on a regular basis. A great way to socialize and motivate each other. The trainers are certified and often moms themselves. Now they created some workouts and online sessions. The virtual trainings for the living room ranges from the Kickstart for Monday morning to the Happy Hubby - and Family Workout. You can find the live-streaming on social media.
Moms and Dads, this offer is for you. Kanga-Training has been specially developed so that you can train together with your little one in the baby carrier, just like a mummy kangaroo. The trainings are perfect to shake of bad vibes. Get happy and fit at the same time!
Sportclubs und Fitnesscenter
Most fitness clubs and studios have also changed their program to online courses. FitX offers members workouts for the living room via the in-house app, Fitness First streams classes for the workout at home on their website. Holmes Place posts exercises on Instagram. The best thing to do is to check the website of your provider.
Urban Sports Club
Urban Sports Club members can continue to train with the partners of the Berlin fitness app, at least with those who have virtual offers. Currently, there are 500 online course offers here alone. The partners are paid by USC as usual. Boulder halls, swimming pools and other sports and fitness providers who cannot offer online classes will receive a proportion of the revenues from USC during this time. We find this worthy of support. Of course you can also pause your membership.
