South-west netball export Sarah Wall is urging the region's netballers not to let the coronvirus pandemic or anything else stop them from remaining active.
"Use this (situation) as a way to get creative," she said.
South-west netball leagues and associations are out of action due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Teams are also not training.
Netball Australia and Wall's NETFIT Netball have partnered up so netballers and fans of all ages can access live and free online workouts and programs until the end of April.
NETFIT Netball usually provides paid-for online and in-person netball programs that include fitness videos, plans and coaching drills for all ages.
Wall said the free sessions, which started Monday, had generated a positive response.
"We've had incredible feedback from our NETFIT community," she told The Standard.
The NETFIT chief executive officer said the program had already had more than 20,000 hits.
"It's a live TV show now," she said.
"The cool part is that people can interact with us through live chat."
The initiative has captured worldwide attention.
Wall said Australia made up 80 per cent of the uptake, followed by the United Kingdom, New Zealand and places such as South Africa.
Participants are being urged to register for the three-day a week (9am-3pm) program on the NETFIT Netball website.
They will get access to five live virtual sessions a day including netball specific workouts, nutrition workshops, well-being workshops and Q and A with elite netballers from around the world.

Wall, who is running some of the tutorials, said the program was far-reaching and would include sessions for umpires.
The clinics - on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays - are live-streamed but can also be replayed.
There is also a Facebook live video each night on the NETFIT Netball page to help engage more participants.
Wall, a Camperdown export, said one of the most important parts of the program was providing a routine for participants while the coronavirus restrictions were in place.
The former Australian netball star said the free clinics were for everyone.
"Entertainment is at the forefront of our minds," she said.
"We want to make it fun and engaging for all ages."
NETFIT Netball's Kim Green, who played for the Australian Diamonds, is also running sessions.
Her sister, Olympic Gold medallist (rugby sevens) Emma Tonegato, is part of the line-up of elite athletes to feature in the online tutorials.
Wall has played netball with the Melbourne Phoenix, Queensland Firebirds, Melbourne Vixens, NSW Swifts and Giants Netball.
