What does fitness mean to you?
For me, fitness is everything. It doesn’t only mean going to the gym and lifting weights but one has to stay fit and feel fit. Fitness plays a really important role in everyone’s life be it youngsters or older people too. With today’s fast paced life, it is very important to keep your mind, body and soul fit.
What is your fitness mantra?
My fitness mantra is ‘just believe in yourself’ and on whatever kind of workout you do. The key is to know your limits and keep pushing yourself to achieve your fitness goals. I love eating, and I believe it is okay to eat whatever one feels like but at the same time it is important to keep a tab on junk food intake.
How do you keep a healthy balance between your mind and body?
The fact that I am a fitness freak helps me maintain a healthy balance between my mind and body. I am into gymnastics and it is something that gives me mental satisfaction. I ensure I practice gymnastics regularly which also helps me perform my own stunts while I am shooting for Aladdin: Naam Toh Suna Hoga. Besides fitness, diet plays an important role too, being a foodie I love eating and I try to compliment my workout regime with appropriate diet that keeps my body and mind happy.
What kind of music do you like listening to while you work out?
I prefer listening to motivational songs and the songs that give an electrifying energy and help boost my workout.
One food item you simply cannot resist?
I am a crazy Pizza lover and find it difficult to resist the same. Hence, I never miss having Pizza during my cheat days.
Any Fitness tip for your fans and viewers?
Fitness is really important for everybody so, I would advise everyone to indulge into any physical activity that you enjoy. Also, it is important not to compromise your sleep as our body requires 8 hours of sleep every day while you also take up any fitness activity like jogging, walking or gyming in order to stay fit.
