What's your fitness mantra?
The mantra is to love yourself to care enough for your body. I firmly believe that you need strong determination and discipline to live a fit and healthy lifestyle. A routine workout coupled with proper food and enough rest is essential for a fit body. Image Source: Adfactors PR
What kind of fitness routine do you usually follow?
I follow a strict workout plan and exercise 6 days a week, except when I am unwell. Cardio includes 20 minutes of treadmill, 10 minutes of cross trainer, and 20 minutes of cycling. For muscle training, day 1 has upper body workout, day 2 has abs, day 3 has legs and lower body, day 4 is reserved for gluteus maximus (butt) workout, day 5 for upper body and day 6 consists of abs and gluteus maximus workouts. But, routine can create monotony, so I also include kick-boxing, a brisk walk etc. to bring variation. Image Source: Adfactors PR

A fitness tip for your fans
Start gym sessions with a warm-up. This helps avoid injuries. Breathe right and do not talk while exercising. Always lead a disciplined lifestyle. Follow your workout with full determination and keep changing it to avoid monotony. Image Source: Pinterest.com
How do you supplement your diet with your workout?
I refrain from using supplements. The food that I eat gives all the required nutrition to my body. I mix veggies with meat and I eat six to eight small meals to boost my metabolism. I like to have a huge breakfast that includes porridge, eggs, toast and fruits. Apart from this, I consume a lot of water throughout the day. Image Source: Moviestimex.com
