Our Virtual MOVEment is not just social clubs and dance parties – even though those are the fan favorites. SOMD's Virtual MOVEment is your healthy habits resource library! We have everything from exercise routines to games that you can play with your quarantine crew. There is so much content that it can definitely be a little overwhelming, so we hooked you up with a great resource library filter. Search by activity, topic, or sport to find the resource that is right for you!
