To keep fit and remain sane during this isolation period, an online workout is the perfect way to start or end your day of working/eating from home. Although we can’t physically go to our favourite Newmarket gyms we can continue smashing out burpees, squats and downward dogs from our lounge rooms or backyards – no excuses now people!
