‘At the moment, Sara’s goal is to be in the best shape for her body type’: Trainer Namrata Purohit

"What I love about her is that she listens -- does what she has to, pushes when she needs to, and takes rest days (which is also very important) when she is asked to," Namrata Purohit tells indianexpress.com

If you are a fitness enthusiast and follow fellow fans, celebrities, and trainers on social media, you would have probably seen the hashtag ‘PilatesGirls’, especially on Instagram. Popular on Pilates trainer Namrata Purohit’s handle, the hashtag often accompanies workout videos of actors Jahnvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan as the trio regularly works out together.

Explaining the various moves Sara can be seen acing in the video, Namrata said: “You see us doing the ‘warrior’ that works the entire body, while also giving the legs, and particularly the inner thighs, a deep burn. We also did exercises that work the entire leg including the hamstrings, quadriceps, glutes etc, and also the back, core, as well as arms. We also worked on various aspects of fitness, strength, balance, flexibility, muscular endurance and more.”

How does Pilates help?

According to Namrata, Pilates is a mind and body exercise that not only works on increasing strength and lean body mass but also improving flexibility, coordination, stability and balance. “Pilates is a full body form of exercise that is extremely customised to one’s body type and goals. In the last 7-8 years, doing Pilates has helped Sara achieve her goal in a healthy, injury-free way,” shared Namrata, stressing the need to “eat a healthy, nutritious diet” to get the “best results”.

Talking about the actor’s training routine, Namrata said, “When Sara is in Mumbai she trains with me 5-6 days a week. What I love about her is that she listens — does what she has to, pushes when she needs to, and takes rest days (which is also very important) when she is asked to. She makes my job easier as she is hard working, receptive, and has faith in the process.”
