What does fitness mean to you? What's your idea about fitness?
Fitness to me means a fit and well-toned body, a strong stable mind and a fantastic positive attitude towards life! That is total fitness!

I run 5 to 6 km every day; Skip 1000 times & do 20 minutes of Power Yoga.

Three things you do every day to remain fit.

A celeb body you admire.
What is your fitness secret?
I am an absolute foodie. I eat everything including junk food and ice cream; however, there is a fitness mantra that I follow as well. While eating everything, I follow my workout rigorously. I have stopped weight training and only do skipping, yoga to keep myself fit and flexible. If I do not get time for a workout, I walk a lot which helps me to burn calories.
A fitness tip for your fans.
I want to tell my fans that you can eat anything you want, but ensure that you take out at least 10 min from your schedule every day to exercise and keep yourself fit. Even a simple walk or jogging will do. Regular exercise is a requirement for the body and not only keeps you fit externally but also make you feel happy from the inside.
