Wagga's fitness experts are urging the public to stay motivated after gyms across the state shut their doors indefinitely.
Under new NSW government regulations, all non-essential services, including gyms, closed at midday on Monday in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Many people rely on being accountable to someone when it comes to exercising, according to Wagga personal trainer Bec Hardwick, which will be hindered due to gym closures and social distancing regulations.
"It is extremely hard to stay motivated when you don't have that accountability of making a PT session or a gym class," she said.
"Especially when you aren't in a normal routine, losing motivation can happen easily and that's when it gets hard to stay on top of fitness."
Ms Hardwick, who runs the Mindfully Fit Wagga personal training service, has had to find ways around her normal business model due to the recent restrictions.
"I now take one on one Skype sessions to keep people in their routine," she said.
"But there's so many things people can do from home even without proper equipment."
A PT of eight year, Ms Hardwick shared her top three at-home exercises for people to get started on their new routine.
"Squats, push ups and burpees are the top three exercises to give your whole body a workout," she said.
"Squats can be done in so many different ways to work different muscles for strength and resistance, for instance wider apart legs will test different areas to having your legs closer together, or even something as simple as changing the direction your toes are point makes a huge difference.
"Then you can add things around the house like a bag of dog food to hold onto and give some extra weight, or lift the item above your head during squats to work your arms out too."
Push ups were another exercise able to be varied, according to Ms Hardwick, who said having arms wider apart would test chest muscles, while having them closer together would target triceps.
"The final step to a good at-home workout is adding in some cardio, and because there isn't space to run laps indoors, something like burpees or star jumps really gets the heart rate going," she said.
"It really is all about getting creative, but it is important to still get fresh air when you can to keep a healthy mind."
Wagga Olympian Brad Kahlefeldt, who participated in the Beijing and London Olympics, said mental health was something to be aware of amid social isolation and distancing.
"A lot of people, for the mental health side of things, need to get outside and need to exercise otherwise the anxiety catches up with them," he said.
"If they're sitting outside and wondering what's going to happen, there's going to be too much stress in their lives and they'll eventually crack."
Mr Kahlefeldt said exercise played an important role in keeping a healthy mindset.
"I've got mates in Europe in lock down and their favourite part of the day is going outside for a run because the governments allow that," he said.
"It's a nice reset, the endorphins kick in and set you up for the rest of the day."
