At home, I do body strengthening exercises, stretches, and get up once an hour to run in place. Sometimes, I will exercise to a workout video on YouTube.  I do like going outdoors to walk, run, and cycle as well.

Sounds good. I liked Planet Fitness when I used to go. I am not going back. I like the fact that I can do almost everything at home and I don't have to pay a membership fee.

Since I've been working from home I do hourly exercises from my desk between tasks - squats, walking in place, light weights for upper body.  I take short walk at lunch for fresh air and additional steps.

I've been walking 3-4 miles several times a week with a friend around 7am (we're both morning people).  I also bought a 6-lb medicine ball and resistance bands for strength training.  I miss my gym but these exercises will help me a bit while I wait.

Yes. I do HITS training, walk aerobics and I ride a stationary bike. I try to work out at least 4-5 days per week.

I climb up the stairwell of my 7 floor complex. I then enter the next floor and go back down to the bottom floor. I try to repeat as many times as my health will allow. I also move my arms in small circles as I walk, or stand still. This really gets the heart pumping and circulates my blood. I feel the intensity of doing the arm rotations, but after the workout with my arms especially, I can breath better. By the way, I wear my face mask and try not to over exert. I also wear plastic gloves or regular clothe gloves to hold on to the stairwell rails.

I am walking everyday for exercise in my neighborhood.  I also started a small garden in my yard and that keeps me very busy and for fun time a play games online and do puzzles.

I just resumed my Saturday morning hikes at a local park.  I've missed these so much.  Most people are wearing masks and make room on the trail.   We are all in this together.  Stay healthy.
