F45's trainers will guide self-isolating participants through a range of workouts which can be done at home, via Facebook live.

They will also have access to nutrition advice and question and answer sessions with trainers while they are at home escaping the virus.

It will be available via a private members' Facebook group, where workouts are live and then saved for people to do at any time.

Their program comes in the wake of the government's shutdown of gyms and indoor sporting venues. Prime Minister Scott Morrison also closed cinemas, casinos and entertainment venues to fight the deadly virus.

Gym owners Michael and Krystal Manley said they wanted to support their members through unprecedented times as the virus took hold.

"We just want to be there for people," Mr Manley said.

"People are so used to seeing and talking to these girls in the gym."

The length of the arrangement was unknown, and Mrs Manley said they needed to act to minimise the huge impact forced gym closures would have on their business.

"It could be six months or it could be a month," she said.

"We are not just going to sit down and let it pass us by."

She said members would never be short of workout content.

"There will be something daily, and we will change it up all the time," Mrs Manley said

Mental health will be the focus of some sessions.

"The big thing we are conscious of is the state of people's mental health," Mrs Manley said.

"For a lot people, this is their release.".

Gym members have been quick to jump on board and demonstrate the community spirit Jimboomba is famous for.

"Our members want to see us, they don't want to see some guy they don't know," Mrs Manley said.

"The support has been great. People are saying they are going to do whatever it takes."

Mr Manley was thrilled.

"I'm pumped right now with the reaction from members," Mr Manley said.

"The feedback has been amazing.

"It's a give and take relationship. We don't want to leave them high and dry."
