The COVID-19 pandemic has altered many lifestyles and daily routines. After over 6 months of on-and-off community-wide scares, cities in the New River Valley are reopening gyms, workout spaces, among other indoor facilities. In addition, Virginia Tech students returned earlier this season to capacity limits within on-campus gym facilities.

However, with limited places to go and work out, Hokies are finding new and creative ways to stay active and healthy, while practicing social distancing. People have taken up online classes for workouts, yoga routines, and meditation sessions. Virginia Tech even introduced a new field house to accommodate students who want safer recreational options.

Thus, it seems like even under the new restrictions, Virginia Tech Hokies are still displaying their value of a healthy lifestyle and spirit for fitness.
