Especially impacted are gyms and martial arts dojos, whose format relies on in-person instruction.
Many facilities are adapting to the quarantine in innovative ways, offering online classes via technologies like Zoom, and livecasting workouts via Facebook.
Ann Arbor's Japanese Martial Arts Center (JMAC) is offering both martial arts lessons and bootcamp exercise classes during quarantine.
JMAC founder Nick Suino states: "In the best of circumstances, it can be hard to motivate some people to get exercise. But there are some simple, effective things you can do to do get more out of your home workouts during quarantine. I recommend four major things: if you're a martial artist, get into your uniform! Develop rituals for beginning and ending your exercise routine. This could be stretches or breathing exercises. Eliminate distractions from your workout space. And finally, set specific goals for what you'd like to achieve with your exercise regimen!"
The Japanese Martial Arts Center has been serving Ann Arbor and Southeast Michigan for years, with traditional martial arts taught by leading experts. Visit their website for more information:
