The bikes at Ascend Cycle may not be spinning like usual, but that doesn’t mean you can’t catch the virtual core classes and live spin classes (for those with a bike at home) with the local team. This weekend, try out the Happy Hour HIIT class for free on Friday, May 15 at 5:30 p.m. to get your feel for it. If you decide you love it, hop on your bike or stay on your mat and join weekend classes such as Elevate, Back Attack and more. // May 15, 5:30 p.m.; free, home membership $99; 2413 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria
Sometimes you just need to switch it up with different workouts, especially when you’re motivating yourself to do so from home.
