On the 14th of March, Spain announced a state of emergency after over 7000 confirmed cases of coronavirus and over 200 deaths. This means all schools, restaurants and non-essential shops will be closed for the foreseeable future. The lockdown also implies that people are not allowed to attend the gymand would have to keep fit with home workouts.

However, the fitness group, Sano Sevilla Los Bermejales, had a brilliant idea and conducted a fitness class from their rooftop, allowing all those in the surrounding buildings to join in a great workout from their windows.

The group posted the routine to their Instagram page and not surprisingly, the act went viral. Instructor Gonzalo told the Metro:

"It was something spontaneous and sporadic because I was bored...I think it's an opportunity to promote a healthy lifestyle and sport and that we are all united."

The act even received some Instagram love from Will Smith:
