Online Fitness Classes
Maplewood and South Orange have moved back to in-person fitness programs. However, if you have access to other virtual classes, you and need to learn to use Zoom, there are instructions below.
How to zoom?
Zoom, facebook live, Google meets and other services are available on your smart phone or computer to have live "meetings" with people remotely. These services have been used for years, usually for business meetings or for people very far away who cannot travel to meet in person. Now, they are being used by many, many people to connect with people during COVID.
