Former Clemson LB Ben Boulware moving gym workouts to social media
|Sunday, March 29, 2020, 1:25 PM-|
Precautions surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak has affected a number of businesses worldwide, including former Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware's gym in Anderson, South Carolina.
What's his solution? Bringing the gym to you via social media.
"We were probably one of the first gyms or studios in the upstate to close," Boulware told WYFF4. "We knew within a week or two weeks we were going to have to and it wasn’t worth the risk and having people come in here and having the possibility of getting the virus...
"Me and Marcus (Brown) are in here every day, trying to keep the content engaging and showing our personalities we show every day during class through Instagram. We’re having a fun time doing it but it’s definitely a weird time."
Check out more from Boulware and an example of his daily workouts below:

With this, it's just take it seriously - stay home." pic.twitter.com/bKxRlajXwd— Julia Morris (@JMorrisWYFF4) March 29, 2020
