As ‘Hum fit toh India fit’ campaign gains momentum throughout country, not just the youth but also the elderly have started hitting the gym or following some sort of fitness regime.

The videos of PM Narendra Modi, Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore, cricketer Virat Kohli and actor Tiger Shroff among others have been sending out powerful message of ‘Fit India.’ Everyone now wants to be conscious of his fitness as a result of which it is common to see young boys and girls going to gym, working out, taking long walks, practising yoga and doing much more.

Sandeep Chawla, owner of a Jalandhar’s gym says, “People today are determined to lose weight to counter the side-effects of hectic lifestyle. We have now included new exercises like cross fit, seeing the rising demands. It boosts up the stamina and also helps in weight loss.”

Namit, a gym freak, says, “I cannot miss gym. With proper gyming, I also make sure that I am taking proper diet. It keeps me fit and healthy.”

Many new exercises like zumba, power yoga and thera bands have also been introduced to make exercising more interesting and enjoyable.

Chakshu Jalota, a college student says, “Zumba is both a dancing as well a fitness class. It provides a workout for the whole body. We just have to learn dance steps, so that exercising becomes enjoyable and not monotonous.”

Priyanka Goyal is dedicated towards Power Yoga. She adds, “Power yoga has strengthened my body. It has increased my flexibility and improved my posture and balance.”

Rachna Thapar, another fitness freak says, “I prefer Thera bands. It is a new technique of exercising and is a convenient option for people of any age or any fitness level. We can even carry these bands with us at any place.”
