This fast-moving world has been stopped because of the COVID-19 epidemic. The effect of the pandemic is enormous, and societal differences are the only method to prevent the fast spread of the illness. The blockade, which resulted in the closure of commercial operations, public spaces, fitness and activity centres, and general social life, has hindered many areas of people's lives and has led to many psychological and physical problems. The author's goal in these papers was to study the unique fitness freak experiences during the lock-down time due to COVID-19. It also examined methods to cope with psychological problems and physical health effects, via alternative exercise and fitness in their homes. Semi-structured telephone interviews with 22 people who routinely worked before the epidemic in COVID-19, but remained at home while nationally locked. The research showed that the participants had a poor view of the situation during the first period of lock-down and a lack of desire for fitness. In using their spare time, they also demonstrated psychological health problems and social media over-reliance. But the good self image and desire to overcome their dependency on fitness equipment and gymnastics and to continue fitness activities in the house has gradually increased. Participants also played music as a means throughout their training. The frequent physical training at home throughout the lockdown enabled them to deal with psychological problems and fitness problems.
