While scores of actors, sports personalities and politicians have taken up the Fitness Challenge initiated by Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, it seems it’s not restricted to these stars alone. Posting videos of her parents, sweating it out at the gym, ace Indian badminton player Saina Nehwal on Friday shared two clips on her Instagram account. While the first one showed her mother, Usha Nehwal pushing up weights, the second featured her father cycling. Joining the ‘Hum Fit toh India Fit’ challenge in style, the two videos shared by the 2018 Commomwealth Games gold medallist left everyone inspired.
Earlier last month, Nehwal joined the campaign after she was challenged by Rathore himself. Posting a video of herself doing some weight-training, she challenged fellow badminton player PV Sindhu, cricketer Gautam Gambhir and actor Rana Daggubati.
Watch the video of her mother here:
Here’s the video of Nehwal’s dad joining the challenge.
People on both Twitter and Instagram were thrilled to see her parents joining the fitness challenge and many called it “inspiring.”
Great.. fit father, fitter daughter.. Similarly like fit people, fitter India.
