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.
