The gyms may be closed, the benches empty and the classes quiet but there are still plenty of ways to move your body from during lockdown.
With two weeks down and hopefully only another two weeks to go in lockdown, exercise has been a great escape for many in the local community to take a step back from their screens and get their blood pumping.
Personal Trainer Rene Mercuri from Anytime Fitness says that it was important to prioritise your workouts during lockdown.
"You wouldn't cancel an appointment with your doctor, so set some time aside and make an appointment with yourself to move your body," Ms Mercuri said.
"Just because you are locked down doesn't mean you can't stick to your fitness goals."
According to Ms Mercuri, there are plenty of ways to 'change it up' and make at home workouts fun.
"Swap your workouts around, an upper body workout one day and a lower body the next to ensure you are working all your muscle groups," Ms Mercuri said.
"Have some fun and be innovative with how you can recreate some weighted exercises from what you have at home."
She recommends anything from empty milk bottles filled with sand to using everyday items such as books to replicate the use of weights in the gym.
Andy Gamble, Manager of F45 Griffith said functional exercises were another great way to move the body during this time to help with everyday movements.
"Keep your exercises simple, don't overcomplicate it and just sweat it out and feel good about yourself," Mr Gamble said.
"A simple squat can replicate sitting up and down from your office chair, functional exercises are a great way to move your body."
Since lockdown began, Mr Gamble has been running classes virtually to help members maintain their everyday training and says that over half of the gyms members are participating
"I think it's important our members aren't left alone during this time and by running the classes at the same time I'm hoping that they won't feel the impact of lockdown as much," Mr Gamble said.
If you would like to take your exercise outside of your home or backyard, you must stay within your local government area and wear a mask if you are not participating in strenuous exercise.
