CBC Edmonton: Balcony Exercise

Like many gyms, Edmonton’s F.R.E.E. Fitness has switched to running classes online – but owner Tony Nguyen said the trainers missed “true human interaction.”

So the gym enlisted a DJ and took class to the streets, leading a balcony workout for condo dwellers in downtown Edmonton.

“Even if people weren’t working out, we wanted residents to come outside, enjoy fresh air and experience good vibes while still practicing social distancing,” says Nguyen.

Next, the gym plans to expand their street-side workouts into other Edmonton neighbourhoods.
