Exercising During the Pandemic
Restriction of activities in public places due to the Covid-19 pandemic has not prevented fitness enthusiasts from training. Fitness centers that were shut down during the pandemic are ready to operate.
IT has been three weeks since Muhammad Justian Pradinata last performed calisthenics—a type of bodyweight exercise—with his friends in the Menteng Park, Central Jakarta. Around one week after the first Covid-19 cases were announced on March 2, the park was closed. Because of the pandemic that shook Jakarta, he has not been exercising as usual. “Parks and other open areas were also closed,” Justian said on May 27.
