This is what exercise looks like in the age of social distancing

With lockdowns and movement restrictions in place across the world, people are having to find new ways to exercise.

Viki Bell teaches karate in Melbourne, Australia — but her dojo is closed because of the country’s social distancing rules.

Instead she has started teaching classes virtually, with her students practicing the moves in their own homes on the other side of the camera.

Julia Basa has used the same strategy. She teaches Zumba — a mix of dance, pilates and aerobics — in Melbourne, but lately has had to hold sessions online from her backyard.

Other places are getting more creative. One neighborhood in the UK town of Frodsham has started doing daily dance and fitness sessions outdoors — everyone on the road, following a resident instructor, but carefully standing a number of feet apart to adhere to social distancing criteria.
