Staying fit not just improves our physical being, but also soothes the mind. And it can be achieved by inculcating simple changes in our lifestyle. Be it brisk walking, running, cycling or yoga — 20 minutes of exercise can bring a lot of positive changes in our body. While exercising helps bring holistic changes in our body, people often indulge in workout sessions just to achieve perfect body shape.
To enlighten Indian citizens on the benefits of exercise and workout, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore kick-started a #FitnessChallenge drive on social media. Ever since he posted a video urging people to take the dare, it seems there is no stopping people from flooding social media with their workout videos.
Check out all the Bollywood stars, politicians and sports icons, who took the #FitnessChallenge and inspired the youth, here:
Along with the hashtag #HumFitTohIndiaFit, he wrote: “Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media,” and challenged Sania Mirza, Virat Kohli and Hrithik Roshan to take it ahead.
