New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman will lead a virtual home ‘work-in’ class on Thursday.

Planet Fitness has launched a series of free fitness classes streamed live on their Facebook and YouTube pages. Edelman will host one of the online classes on Thursday at 7 p.m. (5 p.m. Pacific time/6 p.m. Central time).
