Quarantine doesn´t stop us. The virus is a serious risk so we workout at home.

Quarantine doesn´t stop us. The virus is a serious risk so we workout at home

COVID-19 is spreading worldwide. As you surely know, Spain is one of the countries with the most cases at the moment.
The government has decreed a state of emergency and we must stay home as a precaution. The idea is not to be infected or infect others. We have only been confined for a few days and the peak of the infection is expected in the summer. So we have a few difficult months ahead.

I think this is a time to help our community, be supportive and contribute to make this situation as bearable as possible.

Medical services are saturated, other public services such as schools, libraries, and gyms are closed, as are many small businesses.

Most people have shown their solidarity with beautiful initiatives: from offering to go shopping for older people, applause on the balconies every day at the same time to thank doctors and nurses for their work against this virus, to online concerts via Instagram. Every little action and initiative counts.

From the first moment, I have tried to help and it occurred to me to offer a daily live online training class. Free. Because people and health come before money.

In just five days, not only have people from Spain joined, but also Argentina, Colombia, UK, and the Netherlands.

We exercise with the equipment that everyone has available at home: I teach you how to train with water bottles, chairs, or whatever you have at home.

So I thought that since the WP community has been like a family to me since I came here five years ago, I need to invite you too.

If the quarantine has not yet reached your country, city or town, I am very happy for you and I hope, from the bottom of my heart, that you do not have to suffer this situation. Otherwise, I want you to know that you can count on me and I will help you exercise from home.

Every day, from 4 to 5 (Spanish time) I am live. If the time is not convenient for you, or someday you cannot attend, later I send the link to the recorded class.

This is an excerpt:

Of course, if you decide to join, I will give the instructions in English as well.


I wish that wherever you are, you and your loved ones are well and that we all come out of these difficult times more united and stronger than ever.

  1. Well, we go for a ride… or we work out at home… Every day is leg day. :D

    1. So many gym goers should learn from you :)
      Big hug!!

      1. 😁 Back at you, brother. Stay safe.

    2. So many possibilities for how to work the body, just got to explore your options on your own.

      The fundamental idea is MOVEMENT 😄

  2. My sister, who likes to do both burlesque and belly dancing was fretting about not getting to go to the gym. Afraid she’ll start to go to pot. I will forward your post.

    1. Great 😘

  3. woohoo! me gusta!

    1. Haha! I like your Spanish 👌

      1. Mi placer!

  4. This is a great idea! It’s quite nice of you to give out free classes :)

    1. Thanks! It´s not too much considering what is going on right now ;)

  5. Qué buena gente! Gran idea! Muchas gracias! ☺

    1. Muchas gracias Estrella 😊 Hay que arrimar el hombro en lo que se pueda!!

  6. Chape, this is wonderful of you to do!! Our time-zone differences do not allow for me to join with you; however, I continue to commit to my normal routine EXCEPT that I do my exercising at home. I still rise at 4:15am each morning and head down the hall to my home-gym where I do 15 minutes of rowing, 15 minutes of biking, 15 minutes of running, and 15 minutes of boxing or weight-lifting. Hugs to you for all the inspiration you are offering to so many of your followers on WordPress. We are blessed to have you!!

    1. Thank you! Time-zones are the most difficult things to cope with, haha.
      I´m having a lot of fun doing these online classes and I´ve been thinking about doing more classes at different times. I will keep you updated.
      I love your workout routine! But I must say, 4:15 a.m. is a very impossible time to wake up in Spain, LOL. So often we go to bed at 2:00 a.m. :D
      Big hugs, blessing to all of you, and stay safe!!

  7. Love it! Got to fight through these tough times and come out stronger!

  8. Very very relevant. Guys have to keep on working out even if they’re at home!

    1. Thanks! We need to do something or we’ll get out of this situation not infected but sick anyways 😅

  9. Great message.
    Plenty of variation to explore from at home workouts 😊

    There are plenty of opportunities from COVID-19, from financial to self growth.
    Some will take advantage of them, others won’t.
    I’ve explored a few of them myself recently.

    Well written post, thanks for sharing! 😄

    1. Thank you! We can’t go outside, but we can do lots of things at home. It’s all about attitude 😁

  10. I get tired walking to the fridge 😬🙈

    1. LOL! Mentally or physically?

  11. I agree. After writing, doing school for the kids, and housework, exercising is something just for me that makes me feel good. And too, being at home is less stressful than being at work so I’m not stress eating or drinking sugary things as much. Stay safe in Spain! Cheers to you :)

    1. Exercise is the best medicine :)

  12. thank you for the inspiration to get back to my shorts and sports shoes. stay safe there in spain.

    1. Thank you!! Comments like yours is what makes me happy :) I guess you know the drill: start slowly and have fun, Rome wasn´t built in a day ;) Stay safe as well!!

  13. Beautiful share! In this hard time it’s great to see you giving away these classes. Really appreciate this.

    1. Thank you! I think we have to help by offering what we can :)
