2022 Best Virtual Fitness Classes


Many of us tried virtual fitness classes during COVID and found they were about as fun as a trip to the dentist. Not the case with Format. The studio opened in 2020 with the goal of mixing barre with HIIT and strength training. Rather than letting the pandemic get in their way, founders Thalia Bardell and Caitlin Milbury Young launched virtually, holding sessions with cameras on to keep people engaged (and hold them accountable). The result? Online classes that are even more fun than being in-person.
