Due to the global COVID 19 pandemic, a curfew was imposed to eliminate the spread of the virus. This study aims to investigate the effect of a training program on several body variables and depression degree of female trainees while banned during the Corona pandemic. The study sample consisted of 20 female trainees attending the Consultative Center in the city of Al- Zawia west / Libya. The proposed training program included rhythmic aerobic exercises accompanied with music for 8 weeks, 3 sessions/week for 45 minutes per session. Researchers have used different tools to measure body variables and the “The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI)” to describe their feelings. The results showed a clear and tangible improvement in all body variables represented by both weight, body mass index, selected body contours and the thickness of skin folds (biceps, triceps muscle, external trapezius muscle, broad dorsal muscle, anterior abdominal muscle), and a lower depression degree. The researchers recommend employing various remote training programs for different ages and segments of society during the Corona pandemic.
