The coronavirus is here and there, and the pandemic is everywhere. As a result, swimming pools and gyms are closed and people have nowhere to go in for sports. Considering that in Moscow and the Moscow region you can't even go out, warm-ups and trainings become even more difficult. You can, of course, take a garbage bag with you and run around the house with it. After all, you can leave the apartment to take out the garbage. But the bad weather makes even this absurd idea unattractive. Therefore, we continue to sit at home and observe the quarantine, and now I will tell you how to play sports. After all, we have smartphones that can help us very well in this.
You need to play sports wisely.
If you have dumbbells, exercise machines or other sports equipment at home, it will be much easier for you to exercise without going outside. If not, but you are ready to spend money on them, you can order them with delivery. Most importantly, don't go to the shops. All jokes, but now it's really better to sit at home.
Before I tell you about home sports apps, I want to warn you. Working out with a good coach not only allows you to get more results, but also protects you from injury. For example, sprains, dislocations and tears. They may appear due to improper exercise. Just keep in mind that everything must be done wisely and not overdo it. In general, one must treat everything wisely. Many smartphone users do not do this.

Google sports app
At the end, one cannot help but add an application that is more focused on the daily activity of the person who leaves the house. It's Google Fit. Now it is not so relevant, but it is worth installing it if your activity is of interest to you.
In addition, the application supports synchronization from Google with other applications. For example, if you are tracking activity in your tracker app, you can export the data to Google Fit.
This will make it a little easier to collect everything in one place. Trusting a proprietary Google application is worth it even because it was created with the support of the World Health Organization. And Google itself can afford to make a good physical activity aggregator app.

How to do fitness for free
At this point I will not talk about applications, but about the smartphone as a whole. It turns out that you can not only play sports, but also participate in free fitness workouts.
Nowadays, many gyms and clubs hold open trainings on Instagram. It is enough just to find a club that you are interested in and follow its activity on the social network. With a high degree of probability, they have such streams. For example, here's one, and here's another. You can also find ready-made workouts in the feed of these clubs.
Clubs need this in order to somehow remind themselves of themselves during a forced pause, and at the same time to advertise themselves for the future. When the pandemic is over, those who worked with them on Instagram may come for offline training.
