Editor’s note: While we try very hard to include as many businesses as possible in our roundups, we can never be exhaustive. For this reason, we’d love it if you commented on this story or on our Instagram post, or tag us in an Instagram story so we can reshare it. We see this as an ongoing conversation that we’ll be sharing out many times over the course of the next few weeks.

Hey there, Asheville. How are y’all doing? With everything that’s going on, it’s hard to maintain normalcy, and I know many of us — myself included — rely heavily on exercise to keep our anxiety at bay. We at AVLtoday are working from home, as are many of us, and more and more spots are closing to the public daily. That’s why we asked y’all which spots in town are transitioning to virtual classes, and I was elated to find out there are a fair number of spots that will help you get your sweat (or zen, if that’s more your speed) on from the safety of your own home.

Here a few of the spots offering virtual fitness opportunities:
