America's champion gymnast Simone Biles has dished out some advice to her fans on how to stay fit and strong amid the lockdown.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most gymnasiums across the world are shut and in order to stay fit, people are finding ways and means to do so by searching workout routines on various social media platforms.

But it is not easy to find the right one that suits an individual's preference. And who better than Simone, the four-time Olympic gold medal-winner, to listen to.

In a recent Instagram post, she wrote to her 3.8 million followers: "My @liveCandid tip to stay strong: Mix it up. Obviously, right now I can't train with my team but I like to go for walks or a jog to get some fresh air. I might do some sit-ups, lunges, and jump rope. And then as time goes by I find myself looking at online workouts and dance workouts too to mix it up. #emergestronger #livecandid #throwback."
