Social media has become a powerful tool during this movement control order (MCO) imposed by the Malaysian government. While it does remain a double edged sword, many now find themselves turning to social media for nuggets of information, even when it comes to fitness.
Admittedly, fitness isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But if it is yours, then keep on reading about the many fitness junkies you can look up on Instagram for your daily home workout.
Online fitness coach Kesavan does this for a living, MCO or not. In his post, he cleverly utilises items found around the house to complete his workout. Yup, you don’t need an entire set of dumbbells.
Anuradha is a yoga teacher who conducts virtual Hatha Yoga classes. Having taught yoga for four years, this teacher shows no signs of waning, despite the MCO. Check out her profile to join!
If you do have dumbbells, however, you could check out Varhoon Vystra’s profile for a few simple workouts. The 22 year old has an entire series of workouts that are easy to follow thanks to his clear explanation. We absolutely loved his at home treadmill!
Another online coach, Kirtan Raj, uses water bottles, water jugs and even a rice bag in place of weights. His workouts are not only easy to follow, they’re quite fun to do as well!
This page is run by Kavi Vitya, a yoga teacher who also conducts classes online. She focuses on mental health and stress management, which are key during this MCO period. What we absolutely love about her page is that she routinely collaborates with other fitness enthusiasts to bring the best content to her followers. Well done!
Letch is a fitness enthusiast and trainer at Relevation Republic. Her comprehensive at home workouts are inspiring, probably because she never stops pushing herself. From skipping to weighted exercises, Letch has it all, including a warm up and cool down routine.

All of us are dealing with the MCO in our own way. If fitness is your path, so be it. But if it isn’t, that’s okay. Mental health is key in a time of grave uncertainty like this. Take care of that too!
