The restrictions regulate sports and training in public indoor spaces and private indoor spaces where people come into contact with others that they are not in daily contact with. Thus the rules set up by the order do not apply to people's homes. It is, however, important from the point of view of the spread of the virus, that people working out in e.g. gyms that are located in private houses and offices etc. still follow the requirements aiming to limit the spread of the virus (keep a distance, disinfect the surfaces and hands, wear a mask if possible, practice sports and train individually).
