With the UK on lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic, a host of sports stars and celebs are finding ways to keep themselves entertained on social media.
Fury, 31, and members of his family have been doing daily workouts which are being shared on Instagram Live.
Monday’s session was a sweaty one, with the workout alone enough to warrant a cold shower after.
During the circuit training, Fury moved up to the camera where he spoke of how exercise is helping him.
He admitted without it his “mental health would be terrible” and said that he would “be going around the bend”.
CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – BE IN THE KNOW
The boxer, who spent two-and-a-half years out of the ring battling mental health issues, alcohol and drugs, then proceeded to do FIVE HUNDRED reps of varying floor exercises with wife Paris.
Raking in over 4,000 viewers a time, the Gypsy King, who sensationally stopped Deontay Wilder in February to become heavyweight champ, is clearly enjoying his Instagram fame.
After today’s session, Fury concluded: “Great Monday workout, I’ve got a right sweat on.
“Hope these workouts are helping everybody. Stay safe, stay healthy, have a fantastic day and see you all tomorrow, same time.”
But it doesn’t always go so smoothly on camera.
His kids Venezuela and Prince, who both joined in for this workout, recently crashed another in hilarious style.
Tyson and Paris then took on his brother Tommy and his partner Molly-Mae in one gruelling workout.
And Fury even gave away some secrets to how he battered Wilder in another, and replicated some boxing moves of his hero Mike Tyson.
