It’s been a very chilly December so far, but there are still gyms and studios in the region offering socially distant outdoor workouts following the city’s latest shutdown, which will continue until at least January 1, 2021. To help you satisfy your group-exercise fix (we recommend bundling up appropriately!), we’ve put together a list of some local gyms and studios you can visit to get your movement on at a distance — even in the cold.
